Player's Review

"The Arcade classic comes home. Hop on your bike for a free-wheeling ride up the avenues of not-so-typical suburbia. There are papers to be delivered, robbers to be foiled, and fame and fortune to be won as you brave the mean streets. Avoid traffic, tires, motorcycles, tricycles, gratings, curbs, dogs, dangers, and exhaustion as you deliver to your customers - and as you do as much damage as you can to your obstacles. All the excitement you loved in the arcades."

This the first version of the game I ever played and can be quite a difficult game with some iffy collision detection and only 2 extra lives. The music is nice and I always liked the sound made when throwing papers through the windows. I later had the spectrum version and while it seemed more faithful to the arcade original (which I had never played), the lack of music and sounds made the c64 version the one I liked to play.
