World Darts (DOS)
Like on the arcade, you must beat every opponent once. Unlike in other versions of 180, you play against all opponents, not three. After you beat John, the game instantly exits to DOS.
One of David Whittaker's standard 180 songs has been arranged for one arpeggiated square wave. The first two seconds are almost always out of tune. The music driver is closest to Jason Brooke's Amiga driver (naturally cut down for the poor PC Speaker) and identical to the one in Strike! (DOS), which features an arrangement of a confirmed Brooke composition.
The other 10 sounds are identical to Bubble Ghost (DOS), though only three are heard in World Darts. Bubble Ghost was programmed by Paul Ranson, released in 1988, and both games' sound-effect driver and the actual Darts game use random number generators whose initial seeds read "PAUL". The music is muted when a sound effect plays. The developer worked at unmuting the music when the sound finishes, but neglected to keep the speaker on.
The song was recorded from a Pentium 60 MHz with a microphone.

This rip is missing songs.
The music and sound effects are hard-coded and require a programmatic or logging format that outputs to the PC Speaker. However, this is beyond the scope of this site. The speech is in the file SP-180.BIN.
Sound effects play as fast (and partly as high) as your PC is.
Speech plays only if your PC has the correct speed. In DOSBox 0.74, cycles must be between 541 and 900 (at least when you finish setting up the joystick). Why there is an upper limit is unknown.
