Cross-platform mobile app specialist, Motionlab Interactive has released Darts Match 2, a sequel to the app Darts Match, available now for free on iOS and Android.

Hoping to eclipse the 1.1 million plus downloads generated by the original game, Darts Match 2 offers users an authentic swipe motion to aim and throw darts and contains a host of new features.

Among others, live play now allows players to intuitively take turns against opponents from around the world in real-time and exchange banter on the online oche until the winning double has been hit, just like you would down your local pub. 

Also, players can also now compete in 4 new venues when taking on human opponents and computer adversaries in games of 501, 301, Around The Clock and Cricket, and earn coins and fans in victory.

The introduction of Darts Match TV, powered by Everyplay, enables users to replay and share footage of their big finishes via their social media accounts.

The Darts Match shop, according to company, has also been significantly expanded to offer over 10 million different darts combinations following the addition of hundreds of new free and unlockable flights, shafts, barrels and points.

Motionlab Interactive’s Head of Apps, Alan I’Anson said: “The original Darts Match performed incredibly well in terms of downloads, also achieving a Top 10 placing in Microsoft’s Beautiful Game competition.

“But we felt we could develop an even more complete game of darts by retaining the most popular features from the previous app and complementing them with the exciting new features most requested by our extensive user base.”  

Additional features will be integrated into the app over the coming months including tournament play and other fun play modes, he added.
