The Daily HaiTaku

Looks like Zoso managed to guess it correctly! Friday's haiku was indeed Halo! Well done — that seemed to stump a lot of folks.

Now for today's haiku. It's by me! Remember you can email me with your own if you want to feature.

Science drove him mad So he had to declare war On all animals

I think that's appropriately vague enough!

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!


    Gotta be a platformer, something like Crash Bandicoot?

      Or Sonic the Hedgehog!

      EDIT: Dammit, way too many people said the same thing between page refreshes :P

    Gotta be Sonic, but alas I was too busy working to get here on time for a guess. :(

    Ratchet and Clank: Up your Arsenal?
    Dr Nefarious was once a person, now he's a mad robot who wants to exterminate all "squishies".

    Impossible Mission?

    Elvin Atombender was driven supervillain mad when a power failure stopped him beating the high score in pengo. Or at least so the leaflet that came with the game said.

    Tenuous connection at best but a fantastic game

      "Another visitor. Stay awhile - stay forever!"

      20 years later I can still hear that creepy opening line. Actual speech on the C64 was a pretty big thing for me.

        It was a big thing for the company that made it, apparently they upped their prices quite a bit based on the reception of the voice sampling in the game

        Destroy him my robots!

    Dr. Robonik's Mean Bean Machine
