The iPhone’s beautiful display makes it perfect for gaming. In reality, there is a barrage of cool games released for iPhones and iPads every day. Indeed, Apple just announced a new iPhone game based on Buffett’s childhood job called Warren Buffett’s Paper Wizard. That’s a fun game that marks Buffett’s tight connection with Apple.
Paper Wizard is Apple’s first original game released for iPhone since 2008 and quickly caught attraction at launch. The games takes you back in time when Warren Buffett was a 13-year-old boy slinging newspapers. In Paper Wizard, you play as the legendary investor and deliver newspapers in Omaha and Cupertino.
Paper Wizard is a new taste of fun that Apple brings to all iPhone and iPad fans worldwide. To be honest, the game is super fun. And we will help you find out how in the section below.
First, it’s a free game!
Apple confirmed that Paper Wizard is completely free for download on the App Store, which is a key benefit of the game. Plus, the game does not contain micro-transactions and any in-game purchases.
Apple also says that the game was developed by Wildlife Design Inc. and it is a copy of the classic game called “Paperboy”. Yes, you heard that right. Paperboy is an arcade game that was first introduced in 1986. In the game, you take the role of a boy who delivers newspapers on his bicycle.
To be honest, playing Paper Wizard for this review reminds me of myself when I was a five-year-old boy who spent two hours per day playing the classic Paperboy game on my Playstation.
Simple, beautiful user interface
Paper Wizard shares the same concept with Paperboy, but it significantly differs from the original game in terms of playstyle and graphics. Indeed, the game sports a simple and adorable user interface, which reminds me of Crossy Road, one of the best arcade games for the iPhone.
The coolest part is that the game does not require you to enter an email address or phone number to sign up. All you need to do is to download the game from the App Store and play the game.
Amusing, challenging gameplay
Paper Wizard is simple and light on content, but it is pretty challenging. You simply need to move through the streets of Omaha, Nebraska and Cupertino, California to toss newspapers and earn Warren Bucks.
If you fail to deliver the newspapers, you lose your money. Make sure your papers won’t hurt birds flying around the cities. Plus, you also need to move away from street light poles and vehicles to get more coins. There is also a leaderboard that helps you track your scores and challenge your friends.
Another highlight of the game lies in its responsive touch control. I spent over 5 hours playing the game and there was no lag at all. In reality, all your gestures are super smooth and respond to your touch.
As for compatibility, Warren Buffett’s Paper Wizard requires iOS 11 or later and works smoothly with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

Warren Buffett’s Paper Wizard is Apple’s second original game since Texas Hold’Em, a poker game that first debuted in late 2006. In 2011, the Cupertino firm removed the game from its App Store, marking the end of Apple’s first iOS game it’d ever worked on.
The release of Paper Wizard marks Apple’s interest in producing its own games for the iPhone and iPad. The game is simple, challenging, and relaxing. And I highly recommend the game to all iPhone and iPad owners.
