Issue 8 (October 1984) (Your Spectrum)   27th Dec 2008 08:10
DARTZ Automata / £5.00

It's darts night down at the local - Automata style - which means that not only do skill and luck play their part, but also the usual overweight and drunken slobs. Being one of these familiar specimens, you have to beware of getting too pi ... drinking too much beer!
Alex: The cassette insert claims that animated cartoon graphics are included, but that's being pretty presumptuous as the only time they're present is when the player goes to retrieve his darts; even then they only occupy a quarter of the screen. Overall it's generally quite a good idea, with the usual Automata novelty value, but the content and execution leave a lot to be desired. Another fault is the claimed skill factor; your efforts hardly relate to your final score.

Alan G: Use of graphics is well above average, especially the animated figure of the player throwing his darts. These are improved by the choice of colours which is just about right for a game of 'arrows' in the pub. There's also some very good sound included, but it gets boring after a while.

Alan H: This computerised mixture of darts playing and getting drunk at the same time is a superb idea, and very funny into the bargain. Like most Automata games it relies heavily on novelty value. Nevertheless, it does feature a well laid- out screen, adequate speed and some interesting graphics. Best of all, though, is the humour, which pokes fun at beer-bellied darts players.
