Tapper, the game is a classic arcade game released in 1983 by Bally Midway. The goal of the game is to serve beer and collect empty mugs and tips.
Tapper puts the player in the shoes of a bartender. The player must serve eager, thirsty patrons before their patience expires.
The Tapper game screen features four bars. Patrons arrive periodically at the end of the bar opposite the player and demand drinks. The player must draw and serve drinks to the patrons as they slowly advance towards the player. If any customers reach the player’s end of the bar, they grab the player-as-bartender and toss him out the far end of the bar, costing the player a life.
As the Tapper game progresses, the customers appear more frequently, move faster along the bar, and are pushed back shorter distances when they catch their drinks. In addition, the maximum number of customers per bar gradually increases until every bar can have up to four customers at a time.
Originally the Tapper game was sponsored by Anheuser-Busch, the first arcade versions sported a “Budweiser” motif and the Budweiser theme song was actually used in the arcade game. The machine was designed to look like bars—complete with a brass rail footrest and drink holders. The very first machines had game controllers that were actual Budweiser beer tap handles.
