Last week we reported on news that Paperboy was coming to the App Store. Featuring both a "classic" and a newly re-imagined 3D mode, this 1984 arcade game should be a perfect fit amongst other retro games that have made their way to the iPhone.

Also, according to developers Elite Systems, the English version of game will go live on the App Store tomorrow for $4.99 with non-English versions being released after the New Year. Needless to say, we'll post more once we have the game in our hands.

    Definitely prefer the "classic" version. Wouldn't have minded them updating the music with the same tune but with modern production techniques.

  • bravetarget

    Just because it was made a long time ago, doesn't make it classic.

    Just sayin..

      Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

      • Jill

        LOL! No kidding. :)

    This remake looks veeery indie :)

    • Jill

      Nothing wrong with indie games as long as they're good. :)
      $4.99 is a little steep though.

      $4.99? Yeah its a bit much, ill check it after a price drop...as classic as it is, I hope there are some surprises within the game to give it some replayability

    Eh, personally I think 4.99 is steep for this game. It doesn't have much replay value.

    • munkee

      yeah, it just has big name and nostalgia factor, similar with Dragon's Lair. But then there are always nostalgic people like me who fall into the trap.

    Used to play this for hours on my Atari Lynx!
    Yep, a classic!

    Best. December. EVAR. Another classic comes back, and despite the transition to 3D it remains very faithful to the original. Awesome.

    I'm just fine shelling out $5 for this. I paid more for the handheld cart when I was collecting Lynx games a few years back.

    It's five bucks people. For less than the price of a cup of starbucks you get paperboy in your pocket. Stop being so **** cheap. Not every game can be 99 cents.

    I don't know how any of you afford your iDevices when you're whining about 5 bucks...

    • Bruce

      Starbucks is only $2 a cup here - AND you get free WiFi too!

      There's being cheap, and then there's avoiding ripoffs!

    That looks pretty cool.

    Too bad you can't choose the C64 version of the Music to go with it though...lol. That was my favorite version out of all of them.
