Description of PaperBoy 2
In this superior sequel to arcade classic PaperBoy, you are back to deliver some more papers to a not-so-friendly neighborhood. However, this time, you can also play as PaperGirl (so as not to be appear sexist, naturally).
The neighbourhoods this time are a little strange, though - all the streets have castles in them! You will also have to dodge the likes of skateboarders, bouncing balls, ghosts (!), and the obligatory workmen carrying furniture or glass. The game has better graphics and is much faster than its predecessor - in fact, I think it's too fast. It also makes crashing into things a frequent occurrence, and your six lives will quickly run out. At least Mindscape adds sound effects to the game this time around, and the obstacles and levels are definitely more diverse than the original classic.
Overall, PaperBoy 2 is an excellent all-around update that doesn't change the tried-and-true concept of the original. The game is as incredibly addictive as ever -- so be warned. Two thumbs up, way up!

While many Amiga games are my favourites, this port is perhaps one of the worst ever! Despite the huge overall power of the platform, this is a very poor example, eclipsed in graphics, sound and gameplay even by 8- bits such as the Amstrad CPC464. Why the people at Commodore decided to release such a poor version is debatable - but even if it was rushed to meet a deadline, it's still a disaster. Stick to any of the other versions, guys, don't bother with Amiga's poor offering!

This game had more bugs than Arachnophobia and A Bugs Life combined. It could have been fun but you die without hitting anything often for no reason.
