One of the Best Classic Games!
14 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great game. This is even better then Pac-Man. The concept of the game is to deliver papers to the customers and destroy the property of non-customers. You have to get through the entire week. There's also a number of obstacles such as dogs, cars, motorcycles, angry neighbors, signs, fences, curbs and many others. At the end of the round there's a an obstacle course as well for a bonus. I love this game. I have it on my old 1985 Tandy personal computer and in Gameboy, original Gameboy. This is a great game if you like older, eighties typed video games. Its also a good game if you don't like killing games. This is not only a fun game but a funny game. Rock on Paperboy! Rock on!
