Root Beer Tapper


Posted Image


Sam's customers really know how to put it away the root beer! In fact, they drink it down as fast as you serve it up . . . sometimes even faster! You're the only soda jerk on duty, so you have to really hustle to keep up with the orders. Things get pretty messy if you don't do it just right. Mugs crash off the counter if you serve too fast or grab the empties too slowly. And if drinks don't come pronto, the customers get downright mean. They'll pick you up and toss you out of the fountain!
Ah, but soda jerking does have its rewards. Pick up the tips to set off colorful floor shows. And if you're good, you'll roll out the root beer in four colourful screens! Tie on your apron and go with the flow; fun for the whole family is always on tap at Sam's place!

SKILL 3... TAPPER, is it the same as root beer tapper? I think so...

23,950

This game is somewhat easy to play when sick... no heavy scrolling...

Root beer tapper was the child version to strip the beer references the arcade game "Tapper" had... Love serving from the actual TAPPER the console had on the machine :)

I can through email... it doesn't allow here at AA though, probably because it's not-Atari.

Rom files need to be zipped before attaching otherwise AA blocks them. I have attached the rom to the first post. Enjoy :)

Not all ROMs, all Atari ROMs I was able to attach without being zipped. So far 2600 / 7800 I attached without zipping and it goes right through.

I believe it is to do with the file extension used. The .rom extension is most certainly blocked.

I wasn't going to submit another high score for this game unless someone went ahead of me, but then I decided to do one on the real machine instead of the emulator.

Oh, you can pick up tips! That helps... lol. I thought it was a tip, but I didn't go for it on my first few plays, because I didn't know it would freeze the costumers, nice...

Yes, it is very easy to run up the score on this game...but seemingly only a couple of us caught on to that...

Skill level 3 is somewhat tricky,... to me anyway. I did catch on to getting more tips as I go.

I use MEKA, it emulates CV very well.. no problems like I had with VirtualColecovision.
MEKA is made for Sega, but one of it's Consoles it plays is Colecovision...
