Paperboy 2 review

Electronic Games Issue 3 (1993): "In Paperboy 2, the player resumes the role of a news carrier. In this cart, however, the player can be a paperboy or a papergirl and deliver papers on a beginner, intermediate, or an advanced route.
When the game begins, a screen shows all the houses on the route. The houses to receive deliveries are yellow and the non-subscribers are blue. Don't worry about memorizing this screen, because once on the route, the player knows which house is to get a delivery by the blue newspaper box and the red welcome mat in front of each subscriber's home.
The object is to successfully deliver papers to all of the designated subscribers every day. A missed delivery results in a canceled subscription. The player must get the newspaper in the box or on the welcome mat to successfully make the delivery."
