The Daily HaiTaku

B-ob mentioned to me in an email that HaiTaku is a difficult beast. It's either too easy or way too difficult. Gnawnborg has dealt us some toughies, but Batguy guessed his haiku from yesterday in less than a minute (it was Alley Cat). We've all been there man.

So B-ob said he has a bad feeling this here lil' haitaku might also be a little on the easy side — good luck!

Paddlin’ cannon top. Para pyramid? Play stop. Jets bomb; helis drop.

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!


    I have no idea but I totally rapped that in my head

      I totally rapped it when I wrote it.

        Were your knees weak at any point in time?
        Any perspiration on your hands?

          I like to rhyme, I like my beats funky. I'm spunky. I like my oatmeal lumpy.


      Argh, beaten by less than a minute! You sir have made an enemy this day. ^_-

        haha I like getting my own back once in a while since mine get picked in seconds. Used to love this game. Absolute classic

          I hate chiming in early, but I can't let people coming in to the thread think it's already guessed... because... it's not Paratrooper. :O

          Duhn duhn duh!

          (ping @germinalconsequence - vengeance is yours!)

            Wow, clues fit it so well!!

              There's a reason for that. ;)

                I think I have it now with a bit of help from google:

                Sabotage. I had no idea that Paratrooper was a clone!

            My vengeance is cooled by the fact that it's not what I thought it was either. *frownieface*

    Just to drop a different line in.... or 2

    - Silkworm
    - SWIV

    I was thinking of Cannon Fodder 1 or 2 - Cannon in name and you get dropped off by Heli's and there were pyramids. Can't fit Jets tho.

    throwing a curveball..



    Pata pata pata pon. Pon pon pata pon.

    *runs in hastily* "Sorry, i was caught up with stuff ill explain tomorrow but the answer is Biker Mice from Mars!", *Jostles out of the room and putters down the hallway laughing manically as he swaggers.*

    Ah! Commando Raid would be my (second) guess based on B-ob's hint and the paddlin' reference.

    For some reason this Haitaku makes me think of Pilotwings / Pilotwings 64. You know, with all those flying vehicles...
