Paperboy is a great arcade classic ported to the NES that could be described as odd. What other game has you dodging the grim reaper, house cats, tornados, breakdancers, crazy old women, and much more. What makes the game so fun is it's simple yet fun gameplay. The game starts off with you getting a job as a paperboy to get money and the game plays out like as a whole week and ending on Sunday. Each day you're supposed to deliver paper to certain people and not to deliver paper to certain houses while avoiding obstacles that make you lose a life in one hit.
An interesting part about the game is that if you actually vandalize or fail to deliver the paper to one of the subscribers houses they will actually set traps on the street to make you lose a life. The graphics are colorful and it shows that they actually really put in time in making the character's colors and houses. But the thing that I really like about this game is the music, it's simplistic theme song is the thing that really makes the game even better. It's such a great and memorable music track that I even hum it to this day.
In short, Paperboy is a simplistic and fun game which you should play if you want to kill time.
