So Alex's sneaky ScribbleTaku from yesterday was actually Golden Axe. Props to Welbot for guessing it so quickly!

Good luck with today's effort!

Ruthan and r3sin finally got the latest ScribbleTaku - it was the original Dungeon Keeper, released by Bullfrog in the 90's. That was back when the Molyneux name was synonymous with vision and quality. How times have changed.

Anyway, new day, new game. Let's see how you all go.

No, yesterday's game wasn't Monument Valley and it wasn't The Sims or Pharaoh either. You were on the right track though ... let's see if everyone can't guess the game today.

Well, Excitebike didn't confuse many people. I like that some of you were creative enough to call out my shitty drawing and suggest that it might have been Mario Kart instead, but no, it was the original Excitebike.

Let's see if I can trigger your memory banks again today.

Nice work gz - Friday's ScribbleTaku was Age of Empires. The original one, incidentally. I had the game on my mind after the remaster for AOE 1 was announced during the PC Gaming Showcase. It's been an awful long time since I busted out the CD for that game (since you can't buy it digitally these days).

But a new week means a new game. Let's see how you all go.

Casual Prolix was first to pick yesterday's ScribbleTaku, and softgrip chimed in with the icon's exact location. The game is known in some places as Serf City, but I always grew up with the game being called The Settlers. The simulation was never quite my cup of tea - I preferred games like WarCraft where you had direct control over all of the units.

Still, The Settlers was a popular series. Nice job, you two. But let's see how you all go with today's game.

FireHawk1117 nailed it in one. Yesterday's game was Crusi'n USA, the arcade racer first published for the N64 by Acclaim. I miss racers like that.

So, new day, new game. Let's see how you all go.

Jasontakesomegle nailed it in one yesterday. People's minds might have been filled with all the new announcements and trailers from E3, but he was able to spot The Lion King from a mile away. Good job mate.

Let's see how you all go with today's game.

You didn't think I was going to forget ScribbleTaku just because E3 was going on, did you? Oh no. Let's see if you've got your thinking caps on today.

People thought yesterday's game might have been Earthworm Jim or Mega Man because of the fingers, but those guesses were completely off base. So let's throw up a new hint, and see how you all go.

It took Khadaji and kie723 to correctly point out the latest ScribbleTaku: Arcana from the SNES. Kie723 also pointed out that my drawing skills are terrible which ... well, they're right. I'm pretty bad at that sort of stuff.

But let's see if I can do better today - and whether you can guess the game!

So nobody managed to pick yesterday's ScribbleTaku. It's been a little while! Maybe it's because the game was a little more obscure, although I was hoping that being a SNES game it would be fairly recognisable. But let's pop out a second hint and see how you all do.

So you all remember Wonder Boy 3 pretty clearly. That's nice to see. I actually took the inspiration from the remake, which launches on PC this week, but it upholds the spirit of the original so well that everyone knew where it was coming from. Credit to you and the developers, then.

Let's see how you all go today!

Not many people had a crack at Mortal Kombat 3 last week, but those that did knew exactly what it was. It was the health bar and meter immediately underneath that. Good job claymore35, who was the first one.

Let's see how you all go with the latest game.

The Super Nintendo is certainly a contender for the world's most beloved console. The 16-bit juggernaut has a library brimming with first and third party classics that are known for their tight gameplay and pretty pixels. Unsurprisingly, some of those games are worth some serious cash.
