Jocky Wilson's Compendium Of Darts

It's Jocky, at the 'Ockey, 14 pints... what an athlete! Everyone's favourite dynamic sporting superstar finally makes it on to the Amstrad. that paragon of quality, gymnastic ability and beer-drinking, Guru Jocky "Slim" Wilson!


The object of darts is to hurl little arrows at a bristly circle. The difficult part is keeping down the copious quantities of bitter and whisky that you have consumed, while trying to light your fag and put a flight on a dart at the same time.

Swaying gently in front of you is your monstrous volcanic gut. Simply break wind to steady yourself and hurl the first dart.

The 'compendium' features six variations on the game, each involving a different scoring objective. The darts you throw can be controlled before flight, lining it up with the section of the board you want to hit. This is tricky as your beer-heavy arms sway in a most alarming manner.

There is enough variety to keep you happy for ages. Excellent value and a great laugh, especially in two-player mode.

Graphics And Sound

The graphics are humorous and full of character for a decent overall effect. A brief title jingle makes way for some not bad in-game spot-effects.

It's great fun and quite nice-looking too. Mind you, wouldn't it be easier to play the real thing?
