Based on the old Arcade classic of the same name, Paperboy brings the game into the 3D world. Where in the old arcade game you would go down a set path and fire off newspapers at mailboxes based on your timing, this new game lets you go roam anyway you want in the neighbourhood - even backwards. A time limit and health bar limit how much you can loiter, though.
