Not sure how many paper routes are still being done by bicycle but Paper Dash is bringing the bicycle paper route to your Windows Phone. Reminiscent of the arcade game Paper Boy, Paper Dash places you in the role of the paper delivery person (boy/girl character customization available).

You run your routes collecting soda cans for extra cash, avoid obstacles such as traffic cones and neighborhood dogs, all while tossing newspapers into mailboxes. The game is set up with thirty levels each with performance goals.

Game controls have you steering the bicycle with the Windows Phone accelerometer and papers being thrown by tap/drag motions. Controls may be the weakest/most challenging part of the game in that you don't have much room for maneuverability and I often hit the back button while aiming my throws. I don't know if it would have been better to have a simple tap control the paper throws.

As you earn money by delivering papers and collecting cans, you can spend your earnings at the local store (accessible through the Main Menu) on bonus items. Prices are a little steep ($20 for a bicycle basket?) but it doesn't take long to rake in the dough.

All in all, Paper Dash is a nice game for your Windows Phone well worth a try.  Paper Dash is an free, ad-supported game and you can download it here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace.
