            I remember seeing DONKEY.BAS but don’t recall ever actually running it - I always thought it was part of a BASIC tutorial, not an actual game that people would want to play (er, or something).

            Seeing it now takes me back to the days of typing in program listings from magazines - it’s very much in the same vein quality wise. There’s a certain naiive charm to it, that’s for sure.
