The Daily HaiTaku

Okay, so I'm giving you all one more day to guess yesterday's HaiTaku, mainly because I think it's within reach! No-one got it yesterday, but I think, with a little clue from Zar, you'll get it.

So first let's take a look at the haiku...

The Old King is dead. Forbidden Terrain awaits, after the old maze.

Zar posted twice yesterday with a couple of hints. His first one was...

Try and replace some words with others that mean the same thing.

And his second hint was...

This game is a very popular franchise.

Okay everyone. I believe in you. Have at it!

This is HaiTaku. We write Haikus about old video games and leave it you to guess what game we're talking about. If you want to submit a Haiku feel free. Send it here!


    5 minutes without a guess.
    This never happens.

    Also, this is not a guess.

      its not even a haiku.
      I am disappointed.

        I actually thought that myself as soon as I posted it

    The Senile-bad-driving Overlord is deceased.
    Women's Breasts awaits,
    after the aged corn.

    Nope, I still can't get it!

    EDIT: Forget my guess, it's not a franchise. My second guess was Zork but Gemini got there first.

    This is a complete guess and may have been guessed yesterday but one of the utlima game?

    Last guess, Ultima? [edit: already guessed by noobi. It was also a complete guess for me too]

    God of War 3? Zeus battle, Labrynth traversing, climbing out of Hades lair at the beginning?

    Some incarnation of 'Prince of Persia'

    A Dynasty Warriors or Romance of the Three Kingdoms game?

    Shadow of the Colossus
    Was set in the forbidden lands, I guess the colossi are kinda like mazes
