You know, this game is still fun to play even with all the fancy Wii/PS3/etc games out there. The graphics and gameplay are pretty simple, but the goal and gameplay of the game is clear and enjoyable, you have to deliver newspapers to houses and keep them as subscribers. Throwing newspapers through windows and damaging property will cause them to unsubscribe, and if you run out of subs before the seven days is over, you lose the game. If you manage a perfect delivery, you get a new sub! No, this game does not go on forever - you start with ten subs out of twenty houses, so if you manage a perfect delivery every day, you end up with sixteen subscribers by Sunday (the last day of the game) Sounds easy, right?
Actually it's harder than it sounds, and that adds to the fun of the game! You have obstacles and people who actually try to stop you from accomplishing your goal. You lose a life when you get knocked down by said obstacles. There's dogs chasing after you, irate housewives, loose wheels rolling around, skateboarders and break-dancers, and stationary obstacles such as fences, grates, and brick cairns. All in all, this is a solid old-school game with a simple but well-done premise that is lots of fun to play, so 5/5 stars!
