Rise and shine, sleepy head; it's time to begin your paper route. Load your bicycle with newspapers and hit the road. Ride through your neighborhood and throw newspapers into subscribers' mailboxes or onto their front porches. If you fail to make a delivery, that particular household will drop their subscription. For extra points, you can break the windows of nonsubscribers' homes.
You may think you've got an easy job, but the life of a Paperboy in this game is a tough one. While on your route, you will be assaulted by workmen, tornadoes, motorcycles, lawn mowers, breakdancers, cars, dogs, and even the Grim Reaper. You can avoid them or throw papers at them for extra points. There are also obstacles you must deal with such as trees, tires, grates, fire hydrants, fences, garbage cans, and man holes.
The game is set up by days of the week. At the end of each day, you will compete in a training course made up of obstacles, ramps, and targets.
Based on the 1984 arcade semi-classic, Paperboy spawned a sequel, simply titled Paperboy 2. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
