I didn't make it all the way through all that many games, but there were one or two I managed it with. The one I remember most vividly was the wretched Captain Planet game that came in the Cartoon Classics pack. That took some serious doing, but I eventually managed it.

I'm fairly certain I made it through Paradroid '90. I was pretty hot at the original C=64 Paradroid, but I don't think that actually could be 'completed' in any meaningful way, you just had to do it over and over.

The Addams Family was great fun. I've completed that two or three times over the years. One or two bits of it were mind-bendingly frustrating, but otherwise I really enjoyed that game.

As far as I'm concerned, I've 'completed' The Settlers and Frontier. Neither really has a win condition, but I've survived long enough in both games to have pretty much done everything worthwhile there is to do.

There are probably one or two others. I might've completed Zool, but I can't really remember.

However, despite huge amounts of effort, Xenon II just never happened. I once made it to the start of level 3...

Chaos Engine - not sure if this is the only one! (Back as a child, I also managed to formulate my own algorithm to generate passwords for this, but that's another story!)

Lotus II for sure. I seem to only be able to complete driving games, do it all the time and in record time too.

Funny as since my accident I don't own a car

Turrican 2

Chaos Engine - remember being quite chuffed about it actually although final boss was fairly wimpy

Trex - probably not that hard to do and it was only because the game gripped me so much

Batman Movie - difficulty pitched just right

The final bosses in Gloom Deluxe and Shogo took some running and dying until cleared.

I only play games with cheating. I think its too bad to play them for hours and then suddenly die... Even so, I had interest in the past to play these, without cheating, and completed them. Of these, what I most liked was Turrican II and James Pond II. I loved to see the main characters walking and jumping on the platforms, even knowing its a trick.

Golden Axe
Turrican II
James Pond II

I've always thought that Blood Money was the hardest (read most impossible) game ever. Lovely graphics let down by some really bad design calls , chief of these the need to collect the coins before they fall to the bottom of the screen and the badly implemented energy bar (why bother with an energy bar at all if it drains so quickly! Are people actually saying that they managed to complete it with no cheats!!
