- This page is about Commodore 64 version. For other games in this series, see 180.
180 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 third track, Waiting, sounds like title music, but it doesn't loop, and ends at 0:07 with strange noise. This track plays when the game shows your opponent, playing darts after you.

The Atari 800 game credits Jason Brooke for music (source). The HVSC credits David Whittaker for the Commodore version, but there currently is no source to confirm this. This page should be updated when the source can be verified.
The fourth track in the rip is the voice of somebody, saying "One hundred eighty!" which plays when you get three tripple-20s in a single set. The quality is very low, and it's very difficult to understand what the words are, but it's still impressive that the developers rendered human voice on a PSG).
Ripping Commodore 64 music is a very complex process that is beyond the scope of this site.
