App description: Permanently Removed from App Store - March 2010 - Get It Whilst You Can.

PAPERBOY: The 'Officially Licenced' mobile phone game version of the 80's SUPER smash-hit coin-operated arcade game Paperboy, designed by Dave Ralston.

- Almost 100% faithful recreation of the multi-million selling original.
- Exciting new game modes including, Time Attack, Challenge & Casual.
- Uniquely developed in 3D enabling:
o authentic Classic 2.5D in-game views,
o stunning new, 3D action-replays and multiple camera angles,
o subtle enhancement of the in-game graphics.
- Created specifically for Elite®, developers and publishers of Paperboy for more than 20 years.

Deliver newspapers to all the "customer" houses on the street. Avoid the hazards. Throw newspapers to damage property of "non-customer" houses to score points.

- Classic: plays just like the original arcade version.
- Casual: a little easier than Classic? Collect: 'Extra Life', 'Baseball Card' & 'Bonus Point icons.
- Time Attack: unlimited newspapers, but limited time. Damage a subscriber's house and you'll loose precious seconds, but damage a non-subscriber's and you'll gain some. You can also pick up items to gain extra time.
- Challenge: perform the listed actions. For a skilled paperboy this won't be too hard.

Nostalgia, nostalgia.

I do wish they include the original graphics like in Monkey Island though. It would be the cherry on top

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

Loved the original, but the graphics on this one are a big turn off.

Nothing against 3D style graphics, just don't like ugly 3D style graphics. Pass.

I have to agree. I hate 3D graphics unless they are done right. They should have just kept the original graphics

Do none of you see that you have a choice between the classic graphics and the 3D graphics?

It says game view, not graphics.

The graphics look the same to me, I could be wrong though.

Man, I was terrible at this game when I was a kid. The skewed perspective threw me off. It might be worth a try, though.

This game never caught my attention at the arcades like space invaders, asteroids, galaga, tempest etc...I could go on, but I won't......, so it would take a .99 sale to get me to buy it just for fun
