Only to be found in the classiest of arcades, the burgeoning trend for dedicated cabinets was never as beautifully realised as with Paperboy. Allowing for the established coin-op footprint while making use of a wicked BMX style handlebar controller in place of joysticks and buttons, there's never been a substitute for whipping rolled up newspapers through people's windows than on the original coin-op.

Overall, Paperboy is an entertaining game that takes a superficially boring task like delivering newspapers to ungrateful customers and makes it fun. There is nothing quite like it in the arcade.
