Wow this was an original game. It really was, honest, but it was darn crap after a while. It’s been made on basically all the systems I can think of though, so it can’t be all that bad! 😉
You’re the paperboy for that good ol’ newspaper The Daily Sun. It’s your job to make sure that all subscribers to the paper get their copy! Also you can go and abuse the people that don’t subscribe (an added bonus for those really dedicated workers!).
Playing this game gives a whole new angle to the role of the paperboy, although I’m not sure I’ve seen the lad that delivers our paper fall off his bike as often as I did ;). There are kerbs you hit, fences, dogs, people, and steps (oddly some of them are built across the footpath). There are even break-dancers!! Go figure o_O.
When I started out playing this I was awful, I gradually got better. I think that was the main thing that kept me playing it, not the actual game, but beating my own best. I know that doesn’t say much about the game play, but it does get repetitive. You either love this game, or you just play it because you are bored.
All in all though, it’s a great challenge. Beat your own best, or kick your friends arses 😉 Just get through it so you can say you did even! I admit I sometimes still give it a whirl.
