Download Paperboy

78 kb



Paperboy is a simple yet fun no-brainer game. You play the role of a boy trying to get his newspapers to the right houses whilst avoiding obstacles. Walls, cars, fences, rolling tyres and even people block your way. You have 5 lives to use, each time you hit something a life goes. You also have a limited number of newspapers, and you can pick up more by riding over the piles on the left side of the street. When you ride by a house and ‘subscriber’ appears on your status bar at the bottom, throw a newspaper. You get more point by hitting certain areas, such as the mailbox, front door or the trashcan.

The graphics are either EGA or CGA. The screenshots are of the EGA version. Sound is pc speaker and is only music, there are no in-game sounds. Typing 1 will run EGA and 2 will run CGA. You can redefine the steering keys, but the main(only) bug is you MUST redefine them every time you play, but pressing left, right, up, down and space isn’t too bad a price to pay. ALT will pause the game and CTRL will continue it and ESC will quit is you are playing.

Still interested? Go sell some papers!
