1. The Mulldoon Legacy, by Jon Ingold (1999)
Average member rating: (33 ratings)
Canalboy says:

A problem involving a mechanical monkey in a games room. If you can work out how to open the locked door you must truly be a multi headed mega being from another planet.

2. Acheton
by Jon Thackray, David Seal, and Jonathan Partington
(1978)
Average member rating: (5 ratings)

Canalboy says:

You can make the game unwinnable simply by moving an object. Possibly the earliest game to positively slaver over non clued sudden death scenarios as well.

3. A Flustered Duck, by Jim Aikin (2009)
Average member rating: (9 ratings)
Canalboy says:

A conversation with a pharmacist is needed to complete the quest, however it is unclued and seems completely illogical.

4. Unnkulia Zero: The Search for Amanda, by D. A. Leary (1993)
Average member rating: (5 ratings)
Canalboy says:

Several "wait around for no apparent reason and something will happen" locations and the need to repeat physical actions several times without any clueing as to where or why.

5. The Wedding, by Neil James Brown (1996)
Average member rating: (8 ratings)
Canalboy says:

A problem with a pizza delivery and a security guard which can leave the game unwinnable even though you have done nothing to suggest that this would be the outcome.
