DescriptionZeppelin's second game licensed from the successful darts player has a much wider scope than the previous Jocky Wilson's Darts Challenge. The control system involves directing a hand which guides the dart, but this is constantly moving in a random arc, reflecting realistic jitters but making accurate aiming difficult at first. The standard 501 darts rules are among the six games included.
The other games include variants loosely based on football (hit the bulls-eye to start scoring, then a double adds one goal to your score) and bowls (in which a 'jack' dart is thrown by one player, and the aim is to get your darts as close to it as possible). There are also Ten-Dart century (score exactly 100 with 10 darts), Shanghai (where only darts thrown at a particular area can score) and Scram (where one player shoots to successively knock sectors out of play, and the opponent must score as much as possible from the others).

Jocky WilsonAlthough hugely successful as a darts player, Jocky Wilson is perhaps best known in the UK for his inadvertent appearance on long-running music programme Top of the Pops - his photo appeared in the background as the group Dexy's Midnight Runners performed their song Jackie Wilson Said. This was a deliberate joke played by Dexy's notably eccentric frontman Kevin Rowland, though at the time it was widely believed to have been an error by the show's production staff - BBC Radio 1 DJ Mike Read even mocked them the following day for not having heard of the influential soul singer Jackie Wilson, who inspired the song.
