Haiku Hero is a word game about making haikus. For those not aware of what exactly a kaiku is, it's a short Japanese three-line poem that contains 17 moras, or in English-speaking terms, syllables.
The poem must be in the form of 5 syllables, then 7 syllables, then another 5. Haiku Hero puts you against the clock to see how many haikus you can muster up in a time limit, with specific rules to achieve more points, such as 'use this word' and 'use this letter'. I cannot do poetry to save my life, but perhaps you guys will have more luck than I did.
