A prototype of the unreleased 3D version of Paperboy for the PlayStation.
- Plextor drive dumped the disc in scrambled mode. Descrambled version is included.
- Unreleased game
- The loading screen is a bar on the bottom-left of the screen made up of squares of many different colors. The screen glitches a bit, too.
- The top-left of the screen is overlaid with 4 lines that oscillate in length throughout
- There is no audio in the first part of the opening sequence
- The cut scene where music finally plays is still pretty rudimentary, with the angle of view wrongly positioned against the ground
- Title screen is improperly zoomed in
- While there is music in various points, no sound effects have been implemented yet.
- Options menu gives the option for Secret Codes.
- Debugging options are available by default
- Controller rumble feature is even a feature
- The player can choose between a paperboy or papergirl
- The map can be selected
- There is even a Training stage
- There needs to be a fair bit of optimization, as the game loads after nearly every menu selection
- In-game, the player must throw the morning paper at the required number of houses under a timer.
- The player can make the bike jump with the O button
- R2 freezes the game when held down
- R1 throws a paper, which the player has a limited number of. A trajectory arrow indicates where the thrown paper will land
- Controls are rather floaty, with the player easily drifting in the air when jumping
- Score system based on the least number of newspapers thrown (misses), completion time, etc.
- Miscellaneous Notes:
- Game is emulatable: Yes (as of April 17, 2021).
- Game contains dongle protection: No.
- Game contains debugging symbols: N/A
- Dump was originally scrambled: Yes
