It seemed just another day to Postman Pat as he climbed out of bed. Little did he know that he would be rushed off his feet by all the work that faced him this morning as he did his round of Greendale. Parcels, letters and all sorts of odd jobs would keep him very busy. You can help Pat and Jess to get the job done by guiding his van around the village.
You start the game by finding the Post Office where Mrs. Goggins will tell Pat what he must deliver. It will be either a number of letters or a parcel for one of Pat's friends. You can drive around the village (and can reverse if you need to turn around) in order to find your friend's house and deliver the parcel. Letters are delivered to the houses which flash as you pass them. To deliver a letter just press the Fire button as you pass the house. If you miss you have to get Pat out of the van using the Fire button and guide him to pick up the letter and then try again.
If Peter Foggs' sheep get loose you can help him by herding the sheep back through the gate (you must find them yourself!). Watch out for oil slicks on the road and try not to knock over Miss Hubbard who is very unsafe on her wobbly bike. Because Pat is such a busy chap you have only got a short time to complete all your tasks. If you run out of time the game is over.
