How much took You to finish <enter Amiga game name here> without cheating?

Just been reading the latest post on "What Amiga games have you finished, WITHOUT CHEATING?" by [Firthy2002] ( http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?...astpost&t=2733 ), and came up with a new thread idea.

As the title says: "How much took You to finish <enter Amiga game name here> without cheating?"

I mean if it was possible, try to count as much as possible precise time: hours preferably, but days/afternoons/weekends count-type is acceptable

I'm REALLY curious about some games - how much do you have to spend "attached" to your Amiga to finish it...



Yeah... and by cheating i mean also:

- last code entering,
- last save loading,
- looking ALL/MOST of the time at a solution/walkthrough


... i'm sure you do understand

Defender of the crown : less than an hour
Giana Sisters : about a day
Another World : almost 15 years
Wings : two weeks
Leisure Suit Larry : some hours ...

Well, all that depends how much time I spend on playing each day/month/year/whatever

You mean the part after the water pool, when you jump down and all does lasers shoot from the left side? It took me about 2 years to understand that i have to "just" run to the right and the door open by themselves... before i always wanted to fight with the invisible laser "users" ( ) and/or destroy the door... even i'd never could do it, i always though it was just my bad timing

I am sorry but this thread should be combined with the other, its basically asking the same thing but wanting a time-limit too!

Pointless on its own having 2 similar threads on the go at once!!!

I think it's pretty different but it would make more sense if it was about the minimum and/or maximum amount of time that one spent finishing a game

i'm interested in one other thing: when you answer to this thread and the other one (how much games etc) do you consider cheating also look at the walkthrough here and there? that would't be so different to ask for help when you're stuck.
i don't think that i ever finished a game without doing something questionable at the least...

edit: oh ok at least 2 i've finished them clean: Double Dragon and Golden Axe, both in some day

-Turrican2 and 3
-FlightOfTheAmazonQueen (In english!! that was important for me and without walkthroughts)

For the need of this thread, i would like to consider looking all the time at a solution/walkthrough - cheating.

A one-time look "here and there", as you said, is NOT cheating.
