Gordon: Push Over has 100 levels. I completed it in 1992, but when I played the remakes a few years ago, didn't have the courage to go past stage 70.

I remember that I booted the game, spent some time to solve a level, then booted another game.

@Shatterland: you just have to get a lot of lives in Chaos Engine. Those energy balls are difficult, and you can lose one or 2 lives fighting them (the trick is to aim for the generators, which are the real goal, those energy balls keep coming). Once you've completed this, just beat the boss. Rather easy: fire, dodge bullets, (die,) repeat. Mastering the diagonals is the key on that one. Difficult to get used to a gamepad, but doable.

Probably not the biggeset achievements, but I'm quite pleased, that I have managed to finish Dungeon Master 2, Ishar1+2 and EOTB2 with no internet

I've never completed an Amiga game but I intend to one day finish The Settlers, after nearly 30 years of trying.

I tend to play games you can't "complete" like Pinball, Swos, Arcade Pool and Footy Manager games etc. Me and a mate did finish Flight of the Amazon Queen Years ago and I have finished Roadkill on hard many many times. Guess most of my Amiga memories are playing 2 player competitive stuff not single player games.

Monkey Island 1 and 2, Indian Jones and the fate of Atlantis, leisure suit Larry 1, 2 and 3. Police quest 1.

Some of the Sierra ones were probably done on my st at the time.

Don't think I've ever completed another Amiga game, not without cheating anyway so should really count as being proud of completing them.

I also did finish EOTB2. A friend of mine was playing it at the same time, and we were spoiling each other if we were further in the game. Great memories!

Gods, by bitmap brothers, and of course, Another World! Two of my all-time favorite games, somehow I never get tired of these two!

I want to say the Addams Family, but I am not truly proud of it because I could only do it with the secret rooms in the house giving a huge pile of lives...

Still, the perseverance counts for something I guess.

First of all, I'm very impressed by some people's accomplishments. I hardly ever completed any action/platform etc. games that did not include level codes. At least not without cheating.

My biggest accomplishment was probably Uninvited. Very hard.

You can find your jail cell in this game. AFAIK, you can't do anything except attack yourself which ends the game though.

Here is list of ones I remember and took note I completed:

Agony (used save states)
Alien Breed
Another World
Arabian Nights
Chaos Engine
Civilization (multiple times )
Colonization
Defender of Crown
Dune
Flashback
Indiana Jones and Last Crusade
Indiana Jones and fate of Atlantis
Lionheart (funny, back in day completed it, but got bad ending, had to replay game to get good ending after findin gout about it on EAB )
Monkey Island
Premiere (used save states)
Prince of Persia
Project X (used save states)
Pang! (multiple times)
Reunion
Silkwork (Heli only)
Simon the Sorcerer
SuperFrog (multiple times)
Syndicate (used cheat for company name iirc)
Turrican
Turrican II
X-Out

By far, most fun I had is SuperFrog and Lionheart. Both well made games, diverse levels and tons of fun. First time watching SuperFrog ending was probably most funny and satisfying of all games. Probably I've spent most time playing strategy games, but some of them I just never completed, such as BI, HL, Settlers, X-Com. (X-Com I completed on PC back then and multiple times since then, including recent play with open-x-com.) Most of adventure games at some point I used hints / walkthrough.

I used to have excel list that I stopped updating back in 2007, that had list of games I completed (or attempted to complete) for all different systems I played, including Amiga, Genesis (MegaDrive), SMS, GB, GBA, NES, SNES, Arcade, Neo-Geo, N64, PC ENgine and PC. A bit over 130 games completed there, including some of above games.

Waiting to see cfou's list... that must be impressive.

Yes, but according to the game story, the goal is to rescue yourself from prison, not play all the levels.

You must not attack yourself ! Instead, walk toward yourself, through the door. This will do the proper end.

..and then, you get kidnapped by a Guard and the game continues.

Captive has no ending. It was never coded to have one.

You can still choose "call it a day" if you get bored...
