How can a game from 1986 that cost £2.99 be better than the darts mini game in the multi million pound GTA V? Well I take a look to find out.


Versions reviewed include the Speccy, CPC, C64, and Atari with a guest appearance from a very special persons hand!

Also until this week I'd never registered that the dart board in the CPC version wasn't properly round. A result of graphics ported from the Speccy?

This review of the C64 version mentions digitized speech (the guy in the third column).

Cheers. I couldn't score 180 on the C64 due to the odd controls.


I daresay the controls feel normal to C64 owners, but having come straight from the CPC and Speccy versions I just found them odd.

For the same reason that the aircraft controls in the GTA games are godawful: they just didn't care. There were other things to occupy their time, like deciding whether to name their Internet cafes "Tw@t" was a good idea or not.
