Root Beer Tapper
Pour that root beer... or else! Root Beer Tapper allows you to earn a healthy wage doing just that while having a ton of fun.
You know, being an appreciative beer drinker and all, there's nothing like seeing how well and efficiently a bartender works. Pouring beers by the hour, setting up your happy hour chips and salsa, and, if they're female, providing an irresistible smile and great looks under pressure.
And to think, there's some chumps out there who think they have the thing knocked. For you guys, and the rest of you eager to put your cell phone to good old-fashioned arcade-play use, you've got Root Beer Tapper, based on the Bally/Midway Tapper arcade game of the same name - just without the Budweiser license.
In the game, you take control of a mustached bartender who's working several bars at once, usually four in certain columns. He has to move up and down the columns, pouring beers for the impatient customers while collecting empty bar glasses, picking up tips, and preventing customers from reaching his end of the bar. Failure to do these things result in a short game, so be quick about taking care of business, as it only picks up with each growing level.
The game is perfectly emulated just like its arcade counterpart, with levels ranging from interior bars to sports settings outdoors. In-between the beer pouring, you've got mini-games that have you guess where a certain root beer is hidden in a shell game setting. The graphics are nothing complex but still have a cartoony flavor that more than fits the game. Music and sound effects are also basic, but flavorful for the bar scene. And the controls are quick and precise, with only the occasional mispour coming into play.
Root Beer Tapper isn't a perfect game, but for those who feel that pouring some root beer would be far more exciting than dropping puzzle pieces that still want to be challenge, this is the game for you.
What's Hot: If your lifelong dream has been to pour root beer, welcome to Heaven.
What's Not: Basic presentation, but still great fun.
