There are only two songs in the game; one that plays while in-game and the other plays when you're in the training courses. The good thing about the music is that the song you will be listening to mostly throughout the game is over a minute long which makes it take a while before getting annoying. The music was sequenced, but the sequencer is unknown. The music from the NES version can be heard in the GameBoy, SNES, and DOS versions too.

Paperboy 2

Platform: NES
Year: 1986
Developer: Tengen, Inc.
Buy: Amazon

Paperboy 2 is a game based off the popular arcade game Paperboy. The player can now choose between a paperboy and a papergirl. The player can throw papers to the left as well as the right now. There are also four-digit passwords called Routes which are passwords to play Medium Road and Hard Way.

It is thought that this game was developed by Eastridge Technology. However, it is never mentioned in the game (although, this is the case with all Eastridge Technology games, save for WWF: King of the Ring). There is no solid evidence that the game was developed by Eastridge Technology.

Music

There are only two songs in the game; one that plays while in-game and the other plays when you're in the training courses. The good thing about the music is that the song you will be listening to mostly throughout the game is over a minute long which makes it take a while before getting annoying. The music was sequenced, but the sequencer is unknown. The music from the NES version can be heard in the GameBoy, SNES, and DOS versions too.

The game lacks credits, something that all Eastridge Technology games have. In 2018, Rich Shemaria indentified himself as being the composer for this game, as well as Eastridge Technology being the developer. According to Rich, the music was inspired by the Seinfeld Theme.

As per usual with Eastridge Technology games, this game lacks credits. This could be for several reasons. The game uses the same sound engine as Conan, Gauntlet II, M.U.L.E., and WWF: King of the Ring. WWF: King of the Ring was developed by Eastridge Technology, and Scott Marshall confirmed that Nick was the sound programmer/arranger for that game.
