Game Review (written by Gagirl24) Added on: 12/26/2006
This game seemed to be very fun. The point of the game is to throw papers as a paperboy to the different customers that you have. You must be able to get it in the right area and also not hit the different obstacles like dogs, cats, trashcans, people, and more. If you do not reach the goal then you can loose customers. I do not think it is the best game simply because I have other games in which I could not seem to pull myself away from.
This game did however have a good story line which was very simple and to the point which can be a very good thing.
I tried this game when I was bored one day and could not find anything to play that was new. I thought that at first there would be no challenge to it but as I went on it got harder. I never completed the game but I would say I got a good bit done. The different challenges in it made it entertaining and also not so boring. The papers at the end of your turn it cute showing a headline of if you did good or not.
This game was a very simple story and I
think could add something to spice it up a little but honestly I really don't know what that could be. Maybe if it had in the story line to upgrade the bike and then earn enough money and reputation to have their own business one day of running the factory. Using the money for something makes it more fun. Maybe even if you got to pick out a person to play for being the paperboy. Also it may have been my computer but it seemed a little hard to move the bike sometimes so that I would not hit things.
Graphics were ok on the game I have seen better but overall I have seen worse too. I don’t think that I was the best player at this game but I did have fun and it was entertaining for a while. Like I said it was not something that I would always want to play but it does keep you entertained for a while and has a good story line to it. There were new challenges that came if you did well so that made it more challenging throughout the game but it seemed like it was just the same thing over and over and nothing that really grabbed my attention. It is a good game for younger kids to play and have them entertained. I would recommend this game for other people to play and have a good time.

I'm a gamer from way back and it's a classic case of old habits die hard. It's as cool now as when I was a kid.

I use to play paperboy when I was younger, thought it was fantastic and still is, cant wait to play it again.

Absolute classic! You can't beat launching papers at people's houses! I always found it a quite hard game when I was younger, but it would keep me occupied for hours at a time!

Another great game! You could either try to deliver the paper to all your customers, or you could see how many windows you could break. This game is very addictive, and I liked the C64 version even better than the version I purchased for my N64.

Completely brilliant and the graphics are out of this world. The people who had made the game are cool
