MacDailyNews Take: From the app’s App Store description:
Think you can toss a newspaper like the legendary Warren Buffett? Test your paper-flinging skills as you make your way from the streets of Omaha, Nebraska, all the way to Cupertino, California. Avoid vehicles and birds as you deliver papers to buildings near and far. Will anyone collect enough Warren Bucks to dethrone the Paper Wizard? Probably not.

• Multiple stages within each world that increase in difficulty.
• Unique obstacles in each stage that add to the difficulty.
• Haptic feedback to make the game more real.
