    Wake Up The Neighborhood!

    Jump aboard your heavy duty bike for a ride through the burbs. Avoid hazards like motorcycles, brawling dudes, mad dogs and crazed grannies.

    Bust the windows of those non-customers, deliver to your subscribers and earn big points by mastering the radical training course. Keep it up for a week and you'll get to keep your job!

Back Cover - DOS:

    The arcade classic comes home.

    Hop on your bike for a free-wheeling ride up the avenues of not-so-typical suburbia. There are papers to be delivered, robbers to be foiled, and fame and fortune to be won as you brave the mean streets. Avoid traffic, tires, motorcycles, tricycles, gratings, curbs, dogs, dangers, and exhaustion as you deliver to your customers – and as you do as much damage as you can to your obstacles. All the excitement you loved in the arcades.

    Featuring:
  • All the obstacles, bonuses, bad guys, and hazards of the coin-op version.

  • Superb animation and sound.

  • Unending thrills, spills, challenge, and excitement.
