As far as I've heard, it does have to be on default.

It goes through Sunday and on default settings only.

It's the hardest achievement in the game- but very doable.

Slow down to a crawl, when you get close to them, they will run in front of you, then speed back up a bit. Always take it slow if you don't know what is coming, but once you do the level a few times, you'll memorize where everything is and how to get by it.

yeah i finally got to friday. Ofcourse my last death came by a cat again. What's the best way to get across the street starting on thursday, since the two cars go fast.

I can't seem to get passed Saturday yet. I haven't played this game much since the first day I got it, though.

yeah i'm stuck on saturday now but I hate the fucking bee swarm.

I got it with four lives too. I thought saturday was sunday and started to celebrate. Boy was I pissed when I seen it was only saturday but sunday was easy especially since it was the tenth time I did it today.

I'm having trouble with those damned cats as well. It's almost like.. they're AIMING for me! hm. :) I'll have to give the crawl a try.

The cats are the worst part of this whole level.

And also it's not necessarily true to stop in front of them. 1. you will get killed by bees & 2. you will run into a cat that will sometimes just sit and wait for you, then by that point your screwed.

^^^I also hate those damn bees! Once you slow down enough and they're close to you...you can't out bike them! :uzi:BEES!

You shouldn't be having a problem with the bees if you are practicing the course at a medium speed. The time I passed the whole week I never saw any bees once. You should probably work on speeding up your game and less on how many things you are hitting with the papers.

Basically if you die in the first two days it will be very hard to do.

I am still having trouble i get to Saturday and die on the roads normally.

Practice is probably the best solution and you will remember the patterns!

Good luck to everyone!

i just finished this one (and got vandal and the 30 windows one afterwards).

man, easy week has been bugging me since the game came out. I got close a couple of times (one life left on sunday type thing) but today I decided enough was enough and just went for it.

funnily enough I was awful (lost lives on wednesday for gods sake!) but then suddenly got to saturday with no lost lives (+2 extra). lost one on saturday, lost a cheap one on sunday and then another but then finished it.

This was one tough cookie, took me ages to do this. i had gave up on it about 6 months ago but the other night i was in the mood for a little paperboy.

When i finaly completed Easy week I did it with 3 lives left which was very good, i did lose the 2 extra lives i picked up along the way.

OMG, this was my last achievement on Paperboy and it took me about a year of off and on playing to finally master Easy Week. I had the same problem with "Perfection" on Time Pilot. It was a great day finally completing this game...

It has to be with default lives.

I found it useful to do a few days then pause for a rest, watch some TV or something because otherwise I get too tense with all the little shits jumping out in front of me.

I did it in a few hours this way.

my problem is mostly getting across the street when the blondes are driving... what happen to pedestrians have the right away.... still working on easy week will update when i do get it if ever. i end up dying bout 3 houses away from finish on sunday. So close but so far away! just got it with no lives left peddling on a prayer!

Just got this achievement. Man what a fucking bitch.

^^ Good god. A 2 year old thread regeneration?

Thanks for all the tips! I am going to try this tomorrow.

Got the game four years ago, tried Easy Week a couple times and hated it.

Finally re-tried last week and got it, made a video of what worked best for me.
