In Paperboy 2, you are a delivery boy (or girl) for the local newspaper, the Daily Sun. A good job will get you a promotion, but failure will lose you subscribers, or even get you fired!
The object of the game is to successfully deliver to all of your subscribers every day. A missed subscriber will cancel his subscription! Get the newspaper in the box or on the welcome mat to successfully make the delivery. You can get extra points by doing good deeds such as saving babies, or stopping robbers. Also collect bonus points by breaking non-subscriber's windows and flower pots. But be careful, subscribers will cancel if you damage their property!
