Dust off the bicycle clips because it's time to get back in the saddle again.
Here we have a truly outstanding example of the all time eighties classic Paperboy complete with original artwork. The revolutionary in its day handlebar control system gives a fantastic feel with rubber handlebar grips. These are essential on long Paperboy gaming sessions as life can get tough when you're delivering the news!
The concept is simple - delivery newspapers. But like any Paperboy you're going to run into a variety of obstacles including barking dogs, discarded skate boards and angry locals.
Points are awarded by successfully throwing a paper to the houses that have subscribed. If you manage to hit the mailbox you score the most points! You can also throw papers at non-subscribers houses to break windows and score target bonuses.
The game consists of a 7 day week starting with the worst day of all... Monday! Each day Paperboy has to complete his route and also test his skill on a BMX style training ground at the end of his delivery.
If you get a high score you will make the headlines, as the high score details are presented on a newspaper. You'll have to be good to reach a high score as the game is over if you lose your subscribers by not delivering their papers.
Animation is cartoon like, with lots of interaction. This is no easy ride! There are many different challenges lurking out on those streets.
