Title: The History of Tapper
Post by: TrekMD on September 13, 2018, 00:08:42 AM
Here is a video by PatmanQC looking at the history of the arcade game Tapper!  Did you know there are 3 different versions of this game?

I just remember it being a very stressful game, thus a chore to play, with the looping tune playing over and over. I never managed to play this game more than 10 minutes in a row.

Nice Bud cabinet though.

I think what makes this game so unique is the control mechanism as it doesn't have traditional joysticks.

This was a great little video, but never mentions the Atari 8-bit version which was one if the best home computer conversions?

Great video, the audio is poor or is it me?

The audio does have some issues with that video.  It's not just you.
