Cheating at computer games "back in the day"

I collected these in AppleWorks (a dingy word processor for the Apple IIe) over a six year period.
These are not "cheat modes" that the designers built in, these are tiny alterations to the programming in each game, deployed using the Apple II debug console or a disk editor.

What I find amusing about them now is how I assembled them into a little gallery, like a trophy case, or like trading cards or Pokemon. GOTTA HACK 'EM ALL!
