Unicron, I'd like to welcome you to the hallowed group of people who have stumped the Kotaku community through ScribbleTaku. It's an exclusive group — basically it's just you and me in the group — but it's a cool group. For the record, the game was Dragon Buster!

Today's ScribbleTaku comes from GerminalConsequence — good luck everyone!

ScribbleTaku is Kotaku’s newest lunchtime game. We give ourselves 30 seconds to draw an old game on a sticky note, and it’s your job to guess what it is! Come back every day at noon for a new ScribbleTaku! Feel like sending one in? Shoot me an email here.

    Hmmm... the new Bionic Commando had a guy with an arm like that, right?

    Hey Mark, I got Dragon Buster about 15 minutes ago! Only thanks to Unicron's hint.

      Oh, sorry man, I last checked it earlier than that!

    Why thankyou. 37 years and i finally belong to something. And an excellent something it is.

      It also means you belong to the "I'm really bad at drawing" group ;)

        Boo urns to that comment.
        I didn't think it was too bad. :)

      But I got it... eventually.

      Where did you play this game? Never saw it at my local or any of the many city arcades I used to frequent in the late 80's/early 90's

        Would you believe it was at our video shop in the tiny country town of Beechworth (NE Victoria) in the late 80's. Only 5 machines at any one time but it was an exciting day when they would come to change a game or 2. My other pinny parlours haunts were in Kyneton (Pizza shop with about 40 or 50 machines) and Warrnambool Bowling alley amongst others.

        And i did see that you answered it 15 minutes to midday. Actually bought a Namco Museum Xbox360 compilation on Friday that has Dragon Buster on it. Can't wait for it to be delivered.

          Cool. My local in the northern burbs Reservoir was called the "Top Rooms", as it was upstairs, and also had pool tables and questionable activities run from the back rooms. Had probably about 20-25 machines there, Shinobi was probably my first favorite.

          Dragon Buster was apparently also the first game to introduce the double jump mechanic, that's pioneering!

            Man I totally used to go there before it became Eddy's Place!
            Memories... Remember the Rainbow Edition Street Fighter they had there?

          Wait... there was an arcade in Beechworth? How was I not aware of this?

            Not official 'arcades' by my standards anyway. Just 2 video shops that had up to 6 machines in each. Don't think there are any in the town now. Just a bakery and a shit load of tourists... And my old school mate who takes them on the Ned Kelly tour through town.
