Playing the game
It's early morning and the birds are singing. That familiar "TWAP!" 
could only mean one thing-look out the Paperboy is back! Paperboy 2 
is a daredevil stunt rider with a new look - he's a boy or shes a girl! 
The neighborhood has changed too! There are more types of houses, 
including mansions, haunted houses, and kids club houses. There are also 
more obstacles, such as gargoyles, ghosts, and sewer monsters. Luckily, 
Paperboy 2 has improved steering ability and can deliver to both sides 
of the street. Nonetheless, Paperboy 2 still needs help (and skill) 
to survive the hazards of the suburban jungle!

When the game begins, a screen shows all the houses. The houses that 
belong to Paperboy 2's subscribers have paper boxes near the door. 
Score, lives remaining, and papers are shown in the lower left 
portion of the screen.

Score points by getting Paperboy 2 to deliver papers to subscribers' 
houses-those with paperboxes in front. Make sure they get their paper 
delivered or they'll drop their subscriptions! Get points when 
Paperboy 2 does good deeds, such as stopping burglars or runaway 
baby strollers. Collect bonus points in many ways, including breaking 
nonsubscribers' windows, watering the sunbather, and hassling the garbage man.


At the end of each day, beware! Paperboy 2's boss reviews his 
(or her) performance. If Paperboy 2 did well, he (or she) gets 
to wake up bright and early the next morning and make the rounds 
again. If she (or he) didn't make the grade, it may be time to 
look for a new job!


The game has three "weeks" of seven days each (Monday through Sunday). 
Each week has 20 houses: 10 subscribers and 10 non-subscribers. If 
Paperboy 2 misses a subscriber's house, then that house becomes a 
non-subscriber. If Paperboy 2 delivers to all of the subscribers, 
he (or she) can regain a former subscriber. This is called a Perfect 
Delivery. A perfect delivery earns resubscribers up to a maximum 
of 10. After that, a perfect delivery earns a free life. After 
successfully completing a week, Paperboy earns a promotion to a new route

Week 1:   20 small houses, a gas station, and a market.

Week 2:   10 small and 10 medium houses, a gas station, a market, a 
carnival, and spark.

Week 3:   10 medium and 10 big houses, a gas station, a market, 
a carnival, spark, a car dealer, and a mall.

Training Course: In addition, there is a bonus round training course at 
the end of each day. The training course grows longer with each week. If 
Paperboy 2 crashes in the bonus round, he (or she) doesn't lose a life.


The score indicator appears in the upper left hand corner for Player 1 
and in the upper right hand corner for Player 2. Line 1 shows the number 
of papers and lives remaining. Line 2 shows the game score. Line 3 is 
the breakage bonus that is added to the score while time remains in 
the bonus round. Score points by hitting objects with newspapers.

The Daily Report
After the training course, the Daily Report screen appears. If 
Paperboy missed any subscribers' houses (or broke their windows!), 
those houses flails on the screen, meaning they cancelled their 
subscriptions. If Paperboy made all deliveries, she (or he) keeps 
existing subscribers and gains additional subscribers (to a maximum 
of 10). When Paperboy gets through an entire week of daring deliveries, 
she (or he) makes the headlines of The Daily Sun and earns a promotion! 
Along with the promotion, the next Route Number appears. Paperboy begins 
the next game on that route
