The Daily HaiTaku

I loved Friday's HaiTaku because Tigerion, who wrote the haiku, was totally buzzing in and out of the comments with encouragement! But it was all for nothing, because no-one guessed it right! Looks like you all need a little clue...

But first, let's have that haiku again!

Two differing views Roman weapons launched in space Foremost in defense

And here's the image! Good luck everyone!

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!


    Hm. Looks like an EGA palette, so probably a PC title. Also not exactly attractive graphics...

    I've got nothing.

      You have the era about right
      When I played this game to death I didn't even have colour. So yes it is a PC title

    Carline Mufflers!


    Re thought about it would it be EGA Trek?

    3:30 so school is out, another clue for you all

    Create your own ships
    Select the needed armour
    Hellfire missiles fire

      Renegade Legion Interceptor?

        The first line of defense ;)


          Can you imagine how cool a game like that could be with modern hardware? Similar levels of detail only instead of gauges showing how thin your hull was, you could see the actual gouges in the armour

            I would lose days to that. Hell, I dread to think what the total time I spent in that game was; even with the block levels of armour and 2d graphics
            I still have the boxed game including the individual cards for each ship

    Roman weapons launched into space = Gladius - Gladius-class ships...

    Space Hulk or some other kind of Warhammer 40K game?

    Edit: Oops, didn't see it the other day - they were already guessed...
