I have a quick question to ask Crotchdot, who once again guessed yesterday's ScribbleTaku. Are you from the UK? Because when I want to go obscure I usually go with Spectrum games, like yesterday's Jocky Wilson's Darts Challenge. BUT YOU STILL GUESSED IT. I don't even know if it was released in Australia!

Anyway — incredible job man. Incredible.

Good luck with today's drawing 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 us an email here.


    Oh, that old car game where you drive round from a isometric perspective...

    I was thinking of Ivan ''Ironman'' Stewart's Super Off Road, but I don't think that's it.

      lol man your mind an mine think so alike on these things! That was my exact first guess!

    I had a lot of original games on the C64 and Amiga, but the vast majority of my games collection consisted of large boxes of copied disks purchased from garage sales, and a lot of these were international games.
    As for today's I thought Ironman Ivan Stewart's Offroad Racing, but the screenshots don't match.

      How is it that we're all thinking the same thing, but there's nothing to back it up. Maybe the powerups on the track looked like that?

        I think the power-up screen between races had a nitrous tank, but only one.

        yeah, this is the first thing that popped into my head too! Loved that game!

    I'm racking my brains trying to remember in which of the many racing games I've played they had the N2O tanks looking like this. So far I'm getting the feeling this was from a shop screen where you could buy powerups and upgrades...

    Destruction Derby Arenas?

    Edit: Beaten to it. :(

    The UK is not that far away from Oz, Mark. People could still import back in the ol' microcomputer days (I even had the chance to play with a BBC Micro Model B as a kid) or newer generations can turn to emulation.

    Granted, I know ROMs are illegal but I am just pointing out that no matter in the word a gaming device is and gamer will find a way to get at it.

    Street rod. I don't think it is but how good was street rod

      oh hell yeah! even street rod 2! great games! Can't tell you how many damn engines I blew in that game :0
