ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Several levels, and extremely well executed graphics on 8-bit formats, make for a budget classic worth two pints of anyone's money.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Paperboy zeichnet sich bei allen oben genannten Versionen durch seine enorme Schnelligkeit, eine hervorragende Grafik, Spielwitz und Spielvariantenreichtum aus. Eine bessere Empfehlung für einen ehemaligen Spielhallen-Hit gibt es wohl kaum!
Computer and Video Games (CVG)
As enjoyable as it was when it first hit the streets and, at 1.99, it should warm your heart after you've finished a cold paper round.
Computer Gamer
Although the game is challenging and certainly addictive, some may find it a little too repetitive but fans of the arcade game will certainly want to add this to their collection.
Happy Computer
Lange genug hat es ja gedauert: Nach monatelangem Promotion-Wirbel liegt jetzt endlich die erste Heimcomputer-Umsetzung des Spielautomaten »Paperboy« für den Spectrum vor. Die C 64- und Schneider-Versionen waren zu Redaktionsschluß leider noch nicht fertig, dürften aber in Kürze folgen.
