Then, you didn't have the change to play Game Over.

A few years ago I finally completed K240 without cheating.

In 1994, my brothers and I played the K240 demo from the CU Amiga coverdisk. We got the full game because the demo teased you with features that only worked in the full version.

But the demo version gave you a lot more free ships/missiles/credits than the demo, so we turned to cheat codes.

Years later, I finally beat the game with no cheats. It was weird having to actually sell ore to the Imperial Transporter. I also learned the value of ramming the enemy with asteroid engines.

07. Space Quest III
08. The Secret Of Monkey Island
09. Monkey Island II: LeChuck's Revenge
10. Universe

12. Turrican (Alien stages enraged me, the older me wouldn't have the patience now)
13. Turrican II
14. Turrican III (Normal & Hard mode)

all the Mercenary games, in various ways, although "cheating" is actually legitimate in them, paradoxically!
Turrican II. I got close to the end of Turrican I but the disk was corrupt . Don't remember if I finished T3 or not.
Wizball and Wizkid.
Beneath a Steel Sky.

Got to the final stage of Dune II and my crafty strategy stopped working

Chaos Engine. I even generated my own Algorithm for cheats but that was able to complete without cheats. What a game!

I completed Cannon Fodder this year. It took weeks and I don't think I've ever sworn at a computer game so much

From memory (which is fading fast lol), the games below I've definitely completed without any cheats:

Beneath A Steel Sky
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
Second Samurai
Simon the Sorcerer
Desert Strike
James Pond
Lemmings 2: The Tribes
Cannon Fodder
Lotus (all three)
Another World (what an ecstatic feeling I got on completion)
Outrun (Poor port I thought though and looooong loading times)
Shadow of the Beast
Lost Vikings
All the Monkey Island games
Rodland (didn't find that difficult)

I couldn't tell you how long in hours it had taken me to complete any of the above. Most of them I had taken a break with and returned to a few days/weeks later.

Probably a few more I had completed but possibly with a cheat of some form. Examples: Project X (one tough cookie!), Chaos Engine, Turrican, SWIV, to name a few.
