Way back in 1984 I was introduced to my first ever
cracked game, Kokotini Wilf. I remember getting hold of
a copy from one of my school mates. I was so impressed

frustration, we all get to see the ending ...

feeling of completion and satisfaction - all be it in
the form of text.
Not great by any mean feat, but sufficient for 1984.
