The result is a hilarious NintendoHard game that is also effectively a RailShooter, even if it doesn't look much like one. It's '''far''' better than it sounds.

** ''Paperboy 2'' plays with this, though if the thrown paper stops a runaway baby carriage or knocks out a thief/burglar, the next headlines are "Boy Stops Breakaway Baby!" or "Hero Paperboy Stops Thief" We see is a grateful policeman pulling the Paperboy to the side for the front-page picture and some candy (as he'd been helped by the Paperboy). One other thing the Paperboy could run across is a suspect fleeing a cop, and the Paperboy can throw the paper to stun the suspect enough to be captured.

** DifficultySpike: Instead of choosing your difficulty in ''Paperboy 2'' for seven days, you start on "Easy Street." Make it through seven days, you then work "Middle Road" as your next route. Do well on "Middle Road" for seven days, your final route is "Hard Way."

* EarnYourHappyEnding: To get the GoldenEnding, you have to survive ''all seven days of the work week'' while still having at least one customer. What happens? You're treated to a final headline: '''CONGRATULATIONS PAPERBOY!''' with the Paperboy holding up a Golden Trophy instead of a newspaper.

** ''Paperboy 2'' takes it up a few notches: Survive a week's deliveries each on "Easy Street," "Middle Road" AND "Hard Way" and the final Sunday Headline is "PAPERBOY WINS BIG!" The picture is of the Paperboy receiving the Golden Trophy from the Mayor and his secretary while the Satisfied Policeman is with them and two others.
