    PAPERBOY™

    Paperboy, eines der rastantesten Spiele aller Zeiten ist beweglicher denn je.

    Spring auf Dein Fahrrad und rase durch die unüblichen Vororte der Stadt. Während Deiner schnellen Fahrt gibt es kein Hindernis für Dich! Du überwindest alle Gefahren wie Motorräder, Dreiräder, Staus, Zäune, Bord-steine, beißende Hunde, Skateboarder, Break-dancer, hysterische Omas und viel mehr!

    Nach Deiner täglichen Route widmest Du Dich Deinem Training um noch mehr Gewandheit zu erzielen. Du schlägst Fenster ein, schweißt Mülltonnen um und fährst durch Blumen-beete.

    Dieser tolle und rasende Spaß ist für Dich bereit!

    PAPERBOY. The arcade hit that really delivers!

    Ride your trusty bike - loaded with tightly rolled newspapers - through a comical, ever-changing neighborhood. Score big points by tossing papers into subscribers' mailboxes and porches. Don't miss, 'cause you'll lose a customer for every bad throw. Now, for the real fun: score even bigger points by bombarding nonsubscribers' homes, taking out their windows, lamps and statues! But watch out for bad drivers, skate-boarders, remote control cars and lots of other obstacles. They can ruin your day real fast. After work, take on the Training Course, a BMX-style bonus round that'll test your aim and riding skills to the max!

    PAPERBOY™

    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.
