The Daily HaiTaku

Well done to GerminalConsequence who correctly guessed that yesterday's haiku was indeed Loom. Nice job dude!

I never actually played Loom, but I think everyone who ever played Monkey Island totally wanted to. That is all.

Weapons in the trees Help me I can't stop running I might as well jump

Good luck everyone! (As if you need 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!


    Van Halen: The Game

      Exactly what I was thinking.

    Gold Rush! (probably not, but part of me says yes)

    Wonder Boy

      Bah, a minute too late, I reckon it's this for sure.

      Haha, I would've got this for sure if I hadn't got Van Halen stuck in my head instead!

        I guessed Gold Rush because you can go to Panama. :P

      Hmmm come to think of it this might be it.
      So I will say Adventure island
      (A clone of Wonder boy)

      Weapons in the trees, though? I thought they were just kind of lying around.
      Has been a very long time, I can only really remember picking up the axe at the beginning of level 1.

        Yeah, honestly, I've got no idea. That's just the first thing that popped into mind.

        Nah, you had to jump to get your tomahawks. Or were they also in eggs? Maybe Mark meant eggs.

        The axe is high. You need to run and jump. It appears in the foliage. You also can't actually stop.

          Hmmm... I just hit up YouTube to refresh my memory and I think DrCurlytek had it right (eventually), the axes and skateboards were in eggs. The fruit was in the trees.

          At least at the beginning of level 1 which was all I watched.

            Perhaps Mark and I were thinking of the c64 or spectrum version. I'm sure the axe was available by non egg means?

    Atomic Runner? (can't remember any weapons in trees though)

    how about sonic the hedgehog (2 perhaps) you could get weapon things out of trees if you count shields and invincibility as weapons, also coconuts is kind of a mechanical robo-weapon created by dr robotnik and they live in trees, also sonic, he does that running thing and can also jump...

      maybe sonic and the secret rings? you literally can't stop running.

    Hey, did a few day's worth of Haitakus disappear off the site for some reason?

    I remember giving an answer for one that had something something "sleep" in the first line, something something "misguided tyrant" in the second and something something "flaming minions" in the third, which I guessed as possibly Command & Conquer.

    I was trying to find it to see if I was correct and most days (including it) from last week are missing in the list tagged "Haitaku".
