Paperboy, Atari Lynx

The 1990 Atari Lynx version of Paperboy is pretty good in terms of looks and gameplay. It’s not perfect, but the small screen doesn’t hurt the game too badly. When blown-up the screenshots look a bit indistinct, but during play the visuals work fine.

The movement of the bike is maybe a little strange. As it turns left and right it ‘snaps’ 45 degrees into position, which is a bit disconcerting but you get used to it.

This is one of the few Paperboy ports to give you more road to cycle on, in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, which was noted and is welcomed.

The Atari Lynx version of Paperboy is a playable enough port, but maybe isn’t quite as good as it could have been.
