Introducing the most fun and realistic dart game for your iPhone and iPod Touch.
Darts has always been one of my favorite games.
Either getting together with a bunch of buddies to play, or practicing alone, it’s a fun way to kill some time.
Now you can enjoy the same dart games you've come to love, on your iPhone and iPod Touch!
We've spend the majority of our development time porting this experience to the iPhone, because we understand that this is what darts is all about. Our entire play mechanic is just like real darts!
We measure the orientation of the phone and velocity it is moving to determine how straight and how strong your shot is. The more consistant you are with your motion, the better you will be ( just like in real darts! )
Give it a try and see if this isn't the most realistic dart game you have ever played, on ANY SYSTEM!

best dart game???????
the lead-in description should read "most annoying dart game app". the control mechanism is novel but makes me wanna crack myself in the head with my phone. it's not fun at all! you have to aim by tilting the phone as a "crosshairs" floats on the screen. when you get it where you want to aim you have to tap the screen. well, it's as easy as putting a small marble on the screen and trying to get it to stop on a point you wanna aim and then tap the screen. sound like fun yet? then (here's the kicker), you have to motion your iphone as if it were a dart in order to release the dart. can you sense how annoying it would be to do this for each throw? it is a novel mechanism but totally impractical. think...can you imagine someone making an analogous operating mechanism for a pool app? a bowling app? a baseball app? what were they thinking....a Wii type app?? i've honestly tried for five days to get used to this app, and i cant. if youre a masochist, use the three dollars to buy a hammer to hit yourself in the head with....it will be easier to operate, but generate the same amount of headache.
Can't believe this game is barely above a 3 star rating
Game is not perfect but I gave it 5 stars to balance what I felt to be an undeservedly low rating. I see a review where someone wants to be able to use their finger to throw the dart. Please, the accelerometer tossing is the way to go. I can play it one handed on the train without issue. Lots of game choice, with explanations and instructions. AI isn't bad. You do have to get the accelerometer down or else this game will be a decidedly less enjoyable. But once you do, it's the best dart game in the App Store. And I've played the other one with the finger swipe, terrible.
The actual mechanism of play is clever and very responsive, though I'm hoping to find how to throw without anchoring an aim point first. Highly recommended, but...
Please move the pop-up score display off the center of the screen. You're blocking our view of the entry point of the dart on the board. Automatic scoring is wonderful, but I really miss that little payoff peek. I wanna see for myself! Very nice work.
