Scoreboard is updated.

Since Super Mario World 2 is close, I'll say Super Mario World 1, but if that's the answer, you'll have to explain the summer autumn thing to me 😅

Once you beat the game’s Special world, all of the in-game graphics switch to a more fall-like theme.

The middle line, “a bit more of what you want”, was a line in the game’s famous “a bit more _____” commercial.

Anyways, that is correct.

No, creating Haikus that are outside the scope of reasonable knowledge is not the point.

Isn’t that kind of the point?

Obviously you don't want to be so obscure that it's near impossible to solve, but also you want to involve some thinking to it so it's not super easy. I applaud the effort of all the haiku so far and encourage everyone to enjoy the game! 

Also, if a haiku goes unsolved for 24 hrs, I encourage the author to add a hint for the solution.

I like how @HDN gave a hint to a wrong answer. It helped me guess the right one.

How’s this then?

I picked a Snes game

It’s Super Mario World

It’s not Pilotwings

 

Honestly, I don’t think that is “outside the scope of reasonable knowledge”. I feel like something like the game’s file size or the speedrun world record. Not something that was shown to the public on many occasions. Sure, it’s not easy to figure out, but if I revealed much other “reasonable” information it would just give it away. SMW is a very recognizable game after all.

The whole point of this exercise is to solve riddles. I don’t want to make it so everyone can guess on the first try.
