The Daily HaiTaku

Congrats to GerminalConsequence for guessing yesterday's haiku. It was Faxanadu for the NES. Good job!

Today's haitaku comes from Wizz Fizz. It's his first time, be gentle!

Deploy the derricks The second millennium Beware the method

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!


    I really wish there was a new daily game. D:

    I suck at these and even when I read the answers, the games are so often alien to me. wahhh

      Same, I've never really understood Haiku's

      except this one

      Dr. O'Dwyer
      Time to have your head smashed in
      with my new hammer

        Makes no sense to me.


          I take it you're not a big South Park fan.

          Edit: Watch this and it will make more sense.

            I'm seemingly one of the few people in this world that hates it.

    Anno 2070?

    Sim City 2000

    I'm so mad I didn't see Haitaku yesterday, I actually played Faxanadu back in the day!

    Civilization II?
    Civilization III?
    Civilization IV?
    Civilization V?

    Millenium: Return To Earth

    Edit: Or it's sequel, Deuteros (the second millenium)

      Hey Hey Ya got it

      Deuteros: Millenium 2.0

      2.2hrs, Im happy with that :o)

        Never actually played the second one, but I pumped a few hours into Return to Earth as a kid.

          I loved Deuteros
          I recently finished it again using WinUAE Amiga Emulator

    Anno 2070? Or possibly Simcity 2000..,. oh wait those aren't 2nd Millenium...

    Only games that I can think of with deployable derricks is Red Alert 2, Red Alert 3 and C&C Generals. There's derricks in industry giant 2 as well, but you don't deploy them really.

    I've got two guesses for today; Rise of Nations and Empire Earth. Both are strategy games that have oil derricks as you go through the second millennium. I think Rise of Nations might be a good one, actually, because the ageing system creates different methods to do this...
