Mined Out! on the ZX-Spectrum in about 1983-4 - I rescued Bill The Worm from certain death!

ps. I also clocked (it went upto 9999 - then back to 0) Asteroids on the Atari VCS - in or around 1981 or so!!!

The Hobbit on Spectrum, getting the damn Bard to shoot the dragon if I remember right (Been about 25 years I think)  ;D

Also I got into a loop on the Intellivision with Astrosmash, after seven hours of play I had 240 lives and dead instantly but the points gained from the destroyed asteroid gave me another life. It was sad to pull the plug because it would have been interesting to see how far the console went before meltdown :D

I only completed atic atac quite recently - those sodding bits of key kept eluding me . . .

and Sorcery+ on the amstrad was wicked - I remember playing that around one of mates houses - many many many years ago!

Commando on the 64 was ace, great gameplay, great graphics and that friggin tune by Mr Hubbard - fantastic!!!!

Still play it now! Sad! or not? Maybe?

First game I completed was Adventure on the Atari 2600. I completed all 3 difficulty levels too.

I also remember completing The Hobbit by Melbourne House. Text adventure with pictures based on the book. probably about 1984/85 I think.

I can remember looping the mazes on Gauntlet with a friend during a boring holiday where rain kept us indoors on his CPC464.

Probably Super Mario Brothers 1 (still love to play it!)....

I remember playing a lot on my Commodore Dragon 32 (or was it 64?...long time ago!) when I was really small, but it used to crash a lot so I rarely got to finish anything  ;)

Cheers!

Kat,
Do you mean Commodore 64? or Dragon 32 or Dragon 64 . . . they are three separate computers, if you go to the home page here, you can click on either the Commodore 64 or Dragon 32 as they are both on this site? The Dragon 32 and Dragon 64 look the same apart from the name on top of the computer. Mind you, both nice computers anyway!!!!

Just interested!!

Hello!

Opps! Now I come to think about it I'm pretty sure it was the Dragon 32...(it was cream from what I can remember)....some very happy memories and 'I/O errors' from my childhood  ;D

Jet Set Willy, Monsters, Cuthbert in the Jungle/Mines etc  ;D

Take care

Kat

Yeah I completed that in about 82/83 but I think the first one I completed was Gulpman.

I think the first game I completed without cheating was Turbo Outrun on the Mega Drive. Still, it was on Very Easy, and I never really reached the end on a harder setting.

First game I completed was Bruce Lee on the C64, although that wasn't the hardest game in the world :D

I usually pretty rubbish at beating games, unless it's Gran turismo 4 etc... Bring it on ;D
