Elite Systems have shown off a proper trailer for their upcoming Paperboy game on iPhone / iPod Touch.

The trailer shows the utter greatness of the original arcade cabinet, complete with BMX handlebars. And the utter oddness of the 2D and 3D iPhone / iPod Touch versions, which actually don't look quite as bad in motion as they did in static screenshots.

Paperboy sticks you on a BMX bike, hands you a truckload of Sunday colour supplements and bids you to commit blind acts of ugly urban violence against people and property on your paper route, topping the whole enchilada off with a spot of off-road BMX racing at a cool little track at the end of the game. Sadly the last part is missing the big fat momma holding up a placard saying "We *HEART* you Paperboy" but you can't have everything in life, can you?

Paperboy's out today, for the princely sum of 2.99. Here's that there trailer, finally...
