Game Details

This was a variation of TAPPER. TAPPER was a game where you were a bartender serving beer to customers. Some people didn't want that in a children's game room, so ROOT BEER TAPPER was made.

Both games work the same way. You are at one end of four bars that go across the screen. You have a keg for each bar. As the customers move down the bars, you move from one bar to another and serve them. If you miss the empties they slide back, you lose a life. If a customer makes it all the way to your end of the bar, you are flung down the length of the bar and lose a life.

Bonus round: There are several beers/root beers on a bar. A character shakes up all but one of them, then hits the bar to make them jump around. Try to open the one that won't soak you.
