Description: Set slightly into the future, many things have changed but the good old newspaper hasn’t. In a fictional town called West Ville, players jump aboard a futuristic hoverboard and deliver newspapers to as many customers as possible. A fast-paced game where players must navigate their way through the streets, avoiding many obstacles as they progress whilst meeting the required points score. Quick-wittedness is required especially when navigating traffic, animals, characters and other obstacles within the game.
Review: Anyone who has played the classic game of Paper Boy in the arcade will feel instantly right at home playing ‘VR Paper Star’. This is a newspaper delivery game in which you will be throwing the papers by hand to peoples doors (and bonking them on the head as well as breaking a few windows and even stopping cars. While it is a bright and colourful game you will be left wondering where your £15.99 has gone because it is very basic in both visuals and content amount. But having said that it is fun to play and retro gaming fans will enjoy it a little more. OK, so it’s not worth £15.99 but you could always pick this up in a sale. Just make sure it is a REALLY good sale as you won’t want to pay much more than a few quid for this.
