Yes folks, Mastertronic's 180 is a gaming masterpiece if there is such a thing. Amazing value, miss it at your peril.

180 is, quite simply, the best pound for pound darts simulation you'll ever lay your mitts on. And if the noble art of pint pots and fag ends isn't your cup of tea, fear not, this stands up as a Speccy game in its own right, requiring the kind of hand to eye co-ordination any arcade adept would be proud to exhibit.

M.A.D. have certainly stuck their necks out here, and have produced what now stands as the best darts game on the 64, the graphics are quite nice and there's some good effects. Darts is a strange game to play on the computer, but you'll find it makes a lot less holes in the living room wall. And this game's a real bonus for those of you lousy at sums. Do your parents a favour - buy it.
This is exactly what a darts game should be: great fun with a lot of excitement thrown in for good measure. The sound is good, especially the soft thud as a dart lands in the board. The digitised speech announcing 'one hundred and eighty' isn't too bad either. The choice of three variations on a game of darts is good, and the two player mode comes in handy for an alternative practise mode. I like '180' immensely and have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who fancies a quick game of arrows.

Most of the attempts at darts games released so far have been fairly poor and 180 is certainly the pick of the bunch for whiling those long hours when the pub is closed.

„180“ ist ein sicherlich interessantes Programm, obwohl die Spielidee doch schon recht alt ist. Der Preis von 15 Mark stimmt; die Grafik ist gut; der Sound ohne „Cacophonie“. Doch: Meines Erachtens wird das Spiel schnell langweilig, so daß die Spielmotivation schon nach den ersten „Wurfwechseln“ bald nachlassen dürfte.
Je ne suis pas très convaincu par le jeu de fléchettes sur micro, mais World Darts est une simulation assez agréable.

Unfortunately there are no skill levels, but although gameplay remains ultimately repetitive, the lack of disk access on the ST makes it more enjoyable to play.

Darts if a bit of a daft theme for mass simulation, but Mastertronic have executed it very well. The game moves along at a brisk pace and so there is no waiting around to throw your arrows and the difficulty of aiming the darts at the board has been well represented. Finally, the larger-than-life northern announcer is a nice comical touch - this is a slickly presented package!

A good game of darts, but the Spectrum version made better use of the machine.

Ich kann es nicht so recht an konkreten Punkten definieren, aber ich finde 180 öde bis zum Letzten. Darts selbst macht mir Spaß, aber am Computer ist es für mich das beste Schlafmittel. Aber das ist natürlich eine sehr subjektive Betrachtung. Ich kann mir gut vorstellen, daß dieses Programm bei anderen Spielern zum Dauerbrenner wird. Ich empfehle Ihnen, 180 vor dem Kauf probezuspielen, damit sie nicht genauso enttäuscht werden, wie ich es bin.
Atari 8-bitAtari Gamer - XL-XE Game Review Edition
This A8 version of the game is clearly ported from the Spectrum version as it uses the exact same yellow coloured monochrome graphics throughout. They have added a nice little tune to the title screen but apart from that it's exactly the same game. 180! is fun for a while but will soon become tiresome, especially when you are playing on your own, and doesn't really offer any long term playability.
