MGLXLII - Game 5 ~ Paperboy (closes 5-Jan)

The Good News …

MGLXLII – Game 5 ~ Paperboy

Nominated by gamers: @ILLSeaBass and {NW**Nike

ROMSet 106: PaperBoy (Rev 3)

Game Story:
The object of the game is to deliver newspapers to all the "customer" houses on the street. There are also black "non-customer" houses which do not require newspaper deliveries. You must deliver the papers by throwing them onto the door mats or into the mail boxes. On each street, there is a wide variety of obstacles that you must avoid: people, dogs, cats, moving cars, pot holes, kids on skateboards, eldery women pushing shopping carts, men on unicycles, radio-controlled toy vehicles and so on. You can throw newspapers to damage property of a "non-customer" house to score points but if you damage property of a "customer" house, that house will have it's subscription cancelled before the following day and it will become a "non-customer" house, the same thing will happen if you do not deliver a paper to that house at all. You can also throw your papers to knock out certain people like paving-construction workers, men in shabby clothes, break-dancers, one of two men fighting each other, burglers, angry men who start chasing you and so on.

Score Submissions:
Please make a new post for each score you post, with your score as the first line of your post, along with a screen shot showing your score and initials. This game finishes Sunday 5 January 2020, 3am EST eg NY.

Please make sure your settings are as above. No continues are allowed when submitting a score and must be played from the beginning of the game. No pausing. No auto fire allowed. No stitching of INP files with save states. Single player only. No cheats allowed.

*** This MGL game is for EASY STREET only. The "Obstacle Course Trick", the "Grandstand Trick", and the "Lawnmower Trick" are all banned tactics. Usage of any will disqualify the score. ***

BANNED: For example, the bug can be caused by steering sharp right where the finish line and a fence meet. If timed correctly, Paperboy will ride onto a scrambled area (which is the 1-2 screens leading up to the obstacle course). Then into another obstacle course (also scrambled). You can do this many times, and end it by crossing the finish line "more to left on screen". 1 extra loop gives ~1M points and 2 or more loops gives ~10M. The Lawnmower Trick is done by crashing into a lawnmower (from angry customer house) at a specific moment, causing the score to rise into millions.

Games can be played at the arcade. You must ensure the arcade operator has the game at the MGL game settings for the submission to be valid.

GAME 5 … Finish your paper run before you visit the arcade …

Never played before in the 13 year history of the MGL.
