You are the Paperboy and must deliver the newspaper to your
customers on a daily basis. Being set in the USA, this entails
riding your bike down a different street every day, throwing
newspapers into the mailboxes or onto the doorsteps of your
subscribers. If a person doesn't get his paper, he'll cancel his
subscription - and no subscriptions means no job!
Zzap64! Overall Rating: 55%
A different approach to a tried and tested theme, sadly making little difference to the content.
Pick up your old Push Bike, put on your peaked cap and imagine yourself braving
the streets of an American suburb. Only superb riding skills and a steady
throwing arm can get you through your seven day week of hilarious action.
Avoid cars, workmen, drunkards and lawnmowers all out to obstruct you in your
pursuit of excellence. Score points by delivering to all your usual customers,
but you can get sneaky bonuses by breaking the windows of non-subscribers.
It's a difficult task but your employer believes that practice makes perfect
and generously provides a practice track where you can score valuable extra
points. Get ready for the ride of your life.
