  • After a few rounds of this, you can choose to gamble on scoring more than a certain number of points on a conventional dart board - I think it's 100 points with four darts - in order to increase your winnings
  • The questions are a little more interesting than on many such games, but are also quite hard - for example, Who won the 1975 St Leger

      Bullseye is another of the BBC Micro games that were published by Macsen in the 1980s and based on popular TV shows of the day, in this case the darts-based game show hosted by Jim Bowen. He himself does not appear in the computer version, but the famous cartoon bull character (”Bully”) does. The game is presented in Mode 1, which means that only four colours are used (black, red, yellow and white) but also that the graphics resolution is a little bit

      higher than is generally the case in a game of this sort, and that is something which I certainly find a welcome change.

      • certain number of points on a conventional dart board - I think it’s 100 points with four darts - in order to increase your winnings. The questions are a little more interesting than on many such games, but are also quite hard - for example, “Who won the 1975 St Leger?”

        The throwing of darts is controlled by means of the left and right cursor keys and a strength meter rather like the one found in some golf games. It does take a little

        bit of time to learn the necessary amount of force to give your throws, but once you have got the hang of it, I think it actually works rather well. The graphics, as I said above, are quite well done, and the sound effects although basic are appropriate - the version of the “Bullseye” theme tune is not entirely perfect in its rhythm but is close enough to work. All in all, this is quite a fun game with which to spend a relaxing few minutes.
