The first message I got from Angus Kidman, who did yesterday's ScribbleTaku was 'I beat Crotchdot!' He was so happy. Angus' effort, in case you're curious, was Saboteur!

I wasn't so lucky — well done to Spyder J, who guessed Monday's ScribbleTaku. It was indeed The Wild Bunch, a Spectrum game I have the most vague memories of. Well done to everyone who guessed it correctly — it's a pretty rare one.

Remember when 'Remember This' got crazy? And I kept taking the most random tiniest part of each screenshot to confuse everyone. Well, guess what — desperate times call for desperate measures! I'm doing the same with ScribbleTaku!

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.


    Soul Bubble? (i think that's wat its called lol)




    Sonic, one of the underwater levels.

      Thats's what I was thinking..... Sonic CD mabye.

    Crap, I played the crap out of Saboteur when I was a kid.
    I even looked up a few Saboteur screenshots to see how close they were to that picture. Well played.

      I wonder if he was drawing this screen?

    Bubble Dizzy?

    dead or alive


      My guess too.

    James Pond II? (

    That iOS game where you pop all the bubble wrap... XD


    Alex Kidd In Miracle World, the frogs bubbles.

    Bubble Bobble

    Windows 7 screen saver.

    The dig

    There were a few different games it could have been on Monday (as noted by other commenters), but the sun in the top right corner gave it away for me... =)

    As for today's scribble... It's a stab in the dark, but I'm gonna say Cool Spot... Maybe one of these levels?:
