I rented Crazy Taxi 3 for the X-Box and the game takes place in a Vegas-like city called Glitter Oasis. One of the hotels "on the strip" has a row of moai in front of it. The hotel is even called the Rapa Nui.

I just recently played Curse of Monkey Island on the PC (yes, I know I'm behind the times). I cracked up when the oh-so-piratey Scumm Bar was turned into the Lua Bar when the main character's back was turned! There were tiki-ish totem poles inside, the waitress wore a hula skirt and bikini top. The outside had flaming tiki torches. And of course, because it was a "cheesy" bar, the only food they sold was sushi.

Similar to Crazy Taxi, Simpsons Road Rage on PS2 has an area where you drive through a minature golf course and there is a moai.

While there's not really a legit reason to have a tiki in our WW2 flight combat game, this has inspired me to put at least one semi-obscure tiki in the cinematic sequence I'm working on right now. Unfortunately no one outside our dev team will see it til Xmas 2003

But as I'm the ONLY person doing the cinematic scenes for the whole game, rest assured that tiki will be well-represented

I don't remember anything you're refering to... are you sure it's was "Curse Of Monkey Island" and not "Escape from Monkey Island" (which I never played)??

Duh, yes it was Escape from Monkey Island (not curse). Sorry about the confusion!

Mad Dash for X-Box has a tiki world in it... first level, I believe...

If you come over to my house and bring me a bottle of hooch, I'll let you play it, hee hee.

In Half-Life you can uhhmm.. mark your territory. I chose a bright green Moai.
Its fun to spray paint walls with reckless abandon.

Just got a PS2 to help me through the grom British winter months (lots of rain rather than fun snow) and my little brother gave me a PS2 mag. There was a little article mentioning that Kunami have moai's hiding in lots of games including Parodius, ISS Pro Evolution and Police 24/7 (No, me neither...)

Metal Gear Solid 2 is well known, though and there are 3 moai's somewhere in the game. If anyone's actually interested, I'll type out the instructions on how to find 'em, but I can't be arsed otherwise.

Pretty addictive game online. I feel it's tikiesque. I mean the guy's wearing a mask. You can see palms and and outrigger. And there's a volcano. Click once on the mouse to start running, Click and hold to angle spear, release button before foul line. Reminds me of the old track and field game.

This seems to be a link to download the .SWF file - when I drop that file in my browser, all it does is play the "loading" graphic. Also - you cannot link to the games.alentus.com page - access denied! Any hints on how to get to this?

I found it on http://www.fark.com/ . Listed under thursdays posts. The headlinge is speartossing game more addictive than crack. We've been playing it all day at work. You may need shockwave or flash to play it.

Good Luck

Nope - even going to Fark & clicking on the link just takes me to a blank screen... I have Flash installed too.... Maybe it's a Mac problem!

AAAAAAAAaaaaggghhh! Turbogod, why why WHY did you curse me with this game?? I'd almost made it through Friday the 13th unscathed... until THIS! I CAN'T STOP PLAYING!! I've been throwing this damn spear for almost an HOUR now, and STILL can't get on the top score board (I break 500 most times, but that 535 is damn elusive!! Any hints to improve?

No time to write more!

MUST

THROW

SPEAR!!
