Play Paperboy online

Paperboy was one of (if not THE) arcade hit of 1985. It was developed by Atari for the arcades and later published by Mindscape for DOS in 1988. More conversion were made for quite a few other platforms. Paperboy gameplay is peculiar: you control a boy riding a bicycle and your goal is to deliver as many newspapers as you can to a number of houses while avoiding dogs, cars and other obstacles. A sequel called Paperboy 2 was released in 1991 for home computers and consoles.
