In the Atari 2600 game Tapper, you play as a busy bartender tasked with serving a constant stream of thirsty customers across four distinct bars: the Old West Saloon, the Jock Bar, the Punk Rock Bar, and the Space Bar. Each bar features its own unique crowd, making the game increasingly challenging and entertaining.
Your objective is to keep slinging sodas to the patrons while also dealing with the Soda Bandit, who occasionally shakes cans of soda, causing additional chaos. As you serve drinks, make sure there is always a customer without a drink at the bar, or else the drink will slide right off and be wasted. A good bartender doesn’t throw drinks away!
Additionally, you’ll need to watch out for empty glasses that customers send back your way. The game requires quick reflexes, keen observation, and strategic thinking to keep up with the never-ending flow of customers and maintain order in each bar. Tapper tests your skills as a bartender while providing hours of fun gameplay.
