Paperboy is released by Atari Games in 1984. The DOS port in 1987 supports EGA graphics.
In Paperboy, we control a paperboy on a bicycle delivering newspapers along a suburban street which is displayed in a cabinet perspective view. We attempt to deliver a week of daily newspapers to subscribing customers, attempt to vandalize non-subscriber's homes and must avoid hazards along the street. Subscribers are lost by missing a delivery or damaging the subscriber's house, and can be recovered after a perfect day's delivery.
The objective of the game is to perfectly deliver papers to subscribers for an entire week and avoid crashing before the week ends. The game lasts for seven in-game days, Monday through Sunday.
To me, Paperboy is extremely difficult to play. It seems to be quite impossible to throw the newspaper perfectly into mailboxes every time. It is also very hard to avoid all the obstacles, which include some invisible items (must be the bugs of the game).
