How to play the classic Paperboy game for free online

Use your keyboard to play this classic game online. Click Enter to Start, and Spacebar to Select, A button is Z key, and B button is X key. You can Pause the game with P key, and toggle the Sound with S key. The player must stay alive by avoiding obstacles that appear along the street. Some obstacles include everyday nuisances such as fire hydrants, storm drains, break dancers, cars, skateboarders, drunks, kids with radio controlled toys and even rather bizarre foes such as a tornado, oversized house cats, and even the Grim Reaper himself. The player must also cross street intersections successfully (which gets harder each day). Some obstacles can earn the player bonus points. For example, the breakdancer and some men brawling in the street can be "smacked" with a newspaper for extra points. Running into any of the obstacles with the bike results in the loss of a life. There are two types of collisions possible from running into obstacles, "%#@*!" and "SMACK!" The former results from hitting obstacles that are integral parts of the landscape, such as fire hydrants, fences, and signposts. The latter collision type comes from obstacles not integral to the landscape: cars, people, dogs and bees.

At the beginning of the arcade game, there are three different streets to choose from for the paperboy to deliver newspapers, each with a different level of difficulty. They are respectively Easy Street (easy), Middle Road (medium), and Hard Way (hard). The original arcade game had seven stages, one for each day of the week: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and lastly Sunday. On Sunday, the newspapers are bigger, heavier and do not travel as fast when thrown. If you successfully deliver the papers on all seven days, there will be a special feature with a headline that will read "Paperboy Wins Award For Outstanding Paper-Delivery" along with a picture of the paperboy holding a trophy. Afterwards, the game ends. If you make a perfect delivery on any of the days, a customer will resubscribe or there will be a new subscriber. If you lose all lives, the headline will read "The Paperboy Calls It Quits" and the arcade game will end.
