They probably want to get the Let's All Play Live (Paperboy at Retro Reunited) feature out to print first.

Having only ever played it on the CPC and Speccy, both versions I loved... I have to say the C64 version is leagues apart, thanks for this.

Hang on - (no, not that Hang on) - if this has been done at Let's all Play Live - have us non-attendees missed our chance to contribute Darran?
Are we still allowed to contribute on the forum discussions tho?

Yeah, I was playing that a couple of weeks ago in anticipation of there being a LAP on it. It seemed practically identical to the C64 version - presumably some code shared across the two platforms? The graphics look a bit more vivid in the Atari version, generally.

Unfortunately I didn't get through the obstacle course enough times to bring down the gun emplacement at the end, but I'm surprised I even got that far, considering how long it is since I last played it!
