- This page is about ZX Spectrum version. For other games in this series, see 180.
180 (also known as Pub Darts) is a well-constructed, yet simplistic, darts game. You can play with two human players or single player against a computer opponent, but the only game you can play is the standard 501 point game of darts. To aim, you move a cross-hair around the board, but you can't adjust throwing speed, so it's possible to rack up several bulls-eyes at the beginning without even trying. To keep things interesting the AI opponents in each tournament have their own cartoon faces and playing styles.

180's title music is nice and catchy, and there is also a short fanfare at the start of each set. The music is played on the Spectrum's AY-3-8910 chip.
(Source: game lacks audio credits.)
The Atari 800 game credits Jason Brooke for music (source). The HVSC credits David Whittaker for the Commodore version, and archive from which ZX Spectrum rip was taken, also credit him, but currently there is no source to confirm this. This page should be updated when the source can be verified.
The recording of ZXS version was created with Game Emu Player.
Ripping ZX Spectrum music is very arduous process so it's beyond the scope of this site.
