This Atari coin-op became Elite's biggest ever hit in the Winter of '86 and is software proof of the fact that a paperboy's job is a tough one. Hop on your chopper bike fitted with a basket and get those papers delivered. If this sounds tame, bear in mind that in the States it is acceptable for paperboys to sling the papers into the porches without dismounting. This speeds things up a bit but it's still no pushover with hazards that include cars, workmen, drunkards, and kamikaze lawnmowers out to cripple you. Bonus points can be earned by lobbing the papers through the windows of non-subscribers. Maybe ACE should try this. Several levels, and extremely well executed graphics on 8-bit formats make for a budget classic worth two pints of anyone's money.

A bonus pile of newspapers are up for grabs if our delivery boy can avoid the Kamikaze C5.
