The grass is always greener on the other side, so they say. During the daily, predictable grind of employment, daydreams provide light relief to the monotony of life. Walking down the catwalk in Italy; singing on stage in a West End musical, or starring as Bond in the next blockbuster movie. Even serving cocktails in the new designer bar down the road can seem more alluring than your current career path. Tom Cruise certainly had a blast with it before all that dodgy Xenu business!
Tapper offered the opportunity to try before you buy (or, at least, try before you resign) the experience of a glittering career serving drinks to the public.
Complete with a lever resembling a genuine beer pump, Tapper made you feel like a real bartender -- an experience made all the more authentic by the appropriately styled arcade cabinet. Although the original Budweiser version had to be withdrawn and replaced with the more family friendly Root Beer model, there was no loss of appeal in the gameplay.
