YMMV / Paperboy

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: The default and lightest possible interpretation of the Paperboy is that he delivers newspapers to subscribers and vandalizes non-subscribers for fun or out of spite. A darker interpretation is that it was never about the papers at all and the whole thing is one big protection racket, which his superiors, and the police (who will only charge the Paperboy after he leaves the paper), are a part of.
  • Good Bad Bugs: After the obstacle course, in the coin-op version, if you steered along the exact right edge of the finish line, it didn't end, but instead reran the obstacle course. The images were reversed and the point value was crazy. Later versions fixed this bug.
