10 Best Paperboy Conversions

Atari‘s classic arcade game, Paperboy, has been converted to a wide variety of different platforms. We recently played through them all to see which were the best, and here’s our list…

LISTS: as decided by The King of Grabs, in order of greatness:

1. Megadrive/Genesis (1991)
2. Sega Master System (1990)
3. Amiga (1989)
4. Nintendo 64 (1999)
5. Game Boy Color (1999)
6. Game Gear (1991)
7. Commodore 64 (1986)
8. Atari Lynx (1990)
9. NES (1988)
10. Game Boy (1990)

Acorn Electron (1986)
Amstrad CPC (1987)
Apple II (1988)
Apple IIgs (1988)
Atari ST (1989)
BBC Micro (1986)
Commodore 16/Plus4 (1986)
PC MS-DOS (1988)
ZX Spectrum (1986)

The Acorn Electron version is identical to the BBC Micro version so I didn’t see the point in adding both. The Apple IIgs version I had problems with and couldn’t get to run properly. In total I found 19 official conversions of Paperboy. Plus the original arcade game and that makes 20 different versions of Paperboy on thekingofgrabs.com.
