Paperboy, Amiga

The 1989 Amiga conversion of Paperboy is better than the Atari ST version of the game, in my humble opinion. The main reason being that it uses most of the screen and thus gives the game a more authentic feel.

The graphics are more or less identical to the ST version, though, which are representative of the arcade original, if not quite the same in places.

Gameplay-wise, Amiga Paperboy is very good. It’s fairly fast at top speed and the scrolling is relatively smooth. The screen scrolls left and right to give you more road to ride on, which is good, and the iconic Paperboy soundtrack has been well captured too, so Amiga Paperboy is fairly close to the original.
