Free Paperboy Special Edition for iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad @ iTunes

This is my 1st post in ages, haven't been posting for a long time. So apologies if I'm not 100% perfect with this deal. Can't post into freebies where its supposed to be as i get a large pop-up up box on the screen which i can't click out of as I can't see the boxes (must be bug with HUKD & Firefox?)

Hope you enjoy this app, its the 1st time its ever been given away for free so grab it whilst you can. A good freebie to have on your iphone!

Here's the blurb for it ...

Paperboy: Special Delivery By Glu

Free for a limited time!

A veritable classic from the golden age of video gaming returns to a new route on the iPhone/smartphone/mobile platform! The arcade game you remember from the 80's has been brought back to life with updated graphics and a new Story Mode with more forgiving game-play mechanics.

As the Paperboy, you'll fight for customers against the enigmatic "Grifter." Successfully deliver papers to the customers on your route, scoring bonus points for landing papers directly in their mailbox. You'll have plenty of obstacles to contend with along the way: avoid dogs, cars, burglars, breakdancers, trash cans, runaway lawnmowers and more!

As you play through the story, you'll acquire different skills and abilities - like yo-yo and multi-paper throws - to get help you through challenging areas. Pay attention for clues as the story unfolds - will you get the girl? Who are the mysterious paper barons trying to muscle in on your turf? All will be revealed in this humorous, nostalgic and faithful re-creation of the 80's classic!

FEATURES

- An update that retains the humor and core gameplay of the original 80's stand-up arcade classic

- Easy controls make pick-up-and-play a snap: turn left/right, speed up/slow down, throw papers.

- Funny, engaging storyline set in the 80s, supported by new obstacles, gameplay enhancements and characters. 20 story levels in all!

- A NEW, easier STORY Mode in addition to CLASSIC Mode - just like the original!

- Refined artwork and graphics make for a deeper, richer and more 3D experience than ever before.

- Develop your paperboy character by unlocking 10 special skills and abilities in Story Mode such as the yo-yo throw or multi-paper throw.

- GAME CENTER LEADERBOARDS Hit bullseye deliveries and other obstacles to get higher scores and dominate the global leaderboards.

- Special Halloween theme in the story mode. Trick unsubscribers by smashing their windows!

Agree, but every time i go into freebies to submit the deal it comes up with an old deal which covers more than my screen size. I can't reduce the pop-up box so am unable to click on not the same (ie its the pop up box that appears to confirm this is a new deal not the same as another deal). When i click on refresh it allows me to post the deal but NOT in freebies. That's why it seems to be a bug?

Great spot have some heat

This has got to be one of the first 'video games' I can remember playing, around the age of 7-8 years old. A simple classic... downloading now, and voted hot, OP!

Shame it's not one of your standard full page posts on hukd. Glad you're back can get some mega hot deals from your posts in future (I hope!). Voted hot by the way.

Hot, but still not the same as playing on a black and red joystick that could survive the apocalypse.

I'd still say download it on the off-chance you may get any of the apple devices in future. It's never been given away before!

There are loads of classics that I hope may one day grace the iPhone ...

What about Barbarian II (and the lovely posters - Maria!!!)

Now where was that joystick

thanks

A great classic. They should use the paperboy game in those accident claims adverts.

Have you fell from your bike by riding across a drain? Has a neighbour's hearse run you over accidentally on purpose? Has a breakdancing neighbour pushed you from your bike? If any of these incidents have happened that weren't your fault then you can call us on ...

how about bbc micro, zx81 (1K!!, then got a 16K addon - proper programming not like the lazy lousy programmers now)

had a zx81, sinclair spectrum 48k (lol!), commodore 64, commodore amiga, atari st, then pc's and consoles after that....sega megadive (1st one), playstation 1, xbox, xbox360, psp's, gamecube, wii, gameboys, atari lynx (sony stole the looks for their psp http://www.ecrater.co.uk/p/8288670/atari-lynx-console-portable-system-with-1), lots of nintendo game & watches (doh sold them years ago for peanuts, grr!!), etc

spectrum - used to like the Rare games, jetpac, lunar attack, knight lore series was superb at the time, jet set willy
zx81 - 3d monster maze!! (youtube.com/watch?v=sz8bljU9rWY) and scramble - shoot the 0's!! and the 2d maze games (cant remember their names- dungeons and dragons realtime type arcade game)

went to the science museum and they had an event showing old games consoles, computers, etc.........was feeling my ages as had most of the several hundred items at one stage!!
