[Solved] Deleted game menu icon by mistake

I recently broke Minetest with a mod and deleting it using Un-install so as to re-install a clean version failed, so after doing a search using root I found all the files that had failed to delete and deleted them.
I was then able to re-install the game and it works fine now.
The problem is I accidentally deleted the icon on the Menu / Games section (Minetest appears and works but has no icon).
The missing icon was from /usr/share/app-install/icons folder, so could someone please tell me where can I get another so as to restore the icon?
I am using Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon 64 bit (Cinnamon Version 3.2.7) Linux Kernel 4.40-21 generic.

Sorry I may have explained my problem poorly, I mean the icon for starting the game from the desktop menu, not the icons in the game itself.
I have attached a screenshot of the menu from my desktop to explain.
Note the highlighted Minetest does not have an icon like the other items in the start menu have.
The icon normally lives in the folder: File System - usr/share/app-install/icons

Boot your live Mint USB and steal it from there.

Download here, and you should be able use the 'unarchive' option from the menu to browse the file and get the icons you want.

Thank you all for your help, I thought it wouldn't work at first but you can't just drop the image in usr/share/app-install/icons you also have to edit the Menu itself and choose an image
Everything is fine now :-)
