Glu Mobile Delivers Paperboy®: Special Delivery, a Retro Classic Now Available on the App Store

Glu Mobile Inc. (Nasdaq:GLUU), a leading global publisher of social games for smartphone and tablet devices, today announced that Paperboy®: Special Delivery is now available on the App Store. Nostalgia hits the neighborhood with updated graphics that are sure to grab new and classic gamers’ eyes as they peddle down the familiar neighborhood streets reliving the memorable 80’s game. Paperboy: Special Delivery is available for iPhone and iPod touch.

“Millions of people have played Paperboy over the years, and the game has become synonymous with addictive arcade fun,” said Giancarlo Mori, Chief Creative Officer at Glu. “Our team has worked hard to build on the franchise’s success with this version for iPhone and iPod touch, and we're proud to introduce new and exciting features that give consumers a fast-paced yet classic arcade experience.”

Features Include:

  • Best Biker Around- Connect with other players across the world and compare delivery scores from the suburban streets.
  • No More Training Wheels- Jump ramps and avoid varied new obstacles such as a mad scientist, Robot and Kung Fu Man.
  • Different Modes- Story Mode and Classic Mode give players two different avenues of gameplay. For instance, a part of story mode has gamers throwing roses instead of papers to earn “love points” to prove affection towards a girl.
