180 is a darts simulator created by Binary Design. You can play 501 against your pal, or three finalists played by the computer, one tougher than the other, or tune up in Round the Clock descending. You must beat every finalist twice. The hand is moved diagonally by joystick, with directions tilted 45° to the left. Uniquely to the Amstrad CPC version, you can see your rating in the main menu and choose a color set out of three.
When you throw 100 or more in a round, you hear noise, probably applause.
On two occasions, namely in the main menu and when you throw 180, a northern announcer shouts "One hundred eighty" through your Amstrad's PSG! The tinny 1-bit sample, played at 9615 Hz, is identical to the one in 180 (ZXS) (although the game easily could have played the 4-bit sample from 180 (C64)).
All songs were recorded in WinAPE Version 2.0 Beta 2. The unused track 1 was played by modifying the game.

This game uses the computer's built-in AY-3-8912 chip.
In two rare versions (recognizable by the loader flashing black-and-white rather than green), the game crashes after a while, and you can finish a leg with a 25 rather than 50.
