You may have already read elsewhere on this site that I am a big fan of Chris Harvey and Neil A. Bate games and so it is obvious that I am going to enjoy Paperboy.
On the whole, it is very well executed game and is easy to play. The only problem I have with the game is the NASTY colours that Chris either chose to use or had no option but to use – your choice. Cacky colours aside, the game is quite easy to complete but unfortunately I had no time to play through the whole game and so I used a level-skip cheat! Just as well I did!! …
The week’s papers have finally been delivered!
WHAT?!? IS THAT IT?! The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: I completed this game using a level-skip option on a cracked version of the game. To speed up the processes of passing through the levels, I turned up the speed on my C64 Emulator to 400%, which enable me to complete the game in about 15 seconds!!
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Nothing much happens apart from the above screen appearing!!!
Vinny: I would like to think that Chris and Neil kept this game ending true to the arcade and DIDN’T take the easy option of displaying a simple one-screen-ending because he could be bothered!! It truly is a pile of shite.
FINAL SAY: We didn’t even bother including a download of the ending as it is SO crap!
G.E. RATING: 1 / 10
