Description of PaperBoy

Competent PC conversion of one of the Atari's best-known arcade games. If you were ever a paperboy when you were young, you'll know how ungrateful your customers can be.

You've got to deliver your papers to all the houses on your street by firing them into the mailboxes and avoiding people, objects and cars. You also have to make sure you don't run out of newspapers, but more can be picked up on the way. If you don't deliver newspapers to any of the houses, they'll cancel their subscription.

Paperboy is a very original game and fun to play, although it is slightly difficult, especially since the isometric view is a bit blocky in EGA graphics. The graphics are quite good for the time, though, and the animation of your bike and various obstacles is generally good. For some reason, the game has very little sound effects-- something that is one of the best aspects in the arcade original. Fortunately, gameplay is strong enough to carry the day in silence.

If you like this game, be sure to also check out the superior sequel, PaperBoy 2. Thumbs up!
