Tapper (Budweiser) version

Recommended Posts

Anyone know where I can find Tapper for the Atari 800 in the original Budweiser version? All I can seem to find is the Mountain Dew version.

 

Thanks,

I don't think any of the home versions had Budweiser. They were all more 'family friendly'.

If Bud version truly doesn't exist, maybe one of our excellent graphic designers here would like to take that up

Interestingly, even the BBC Micro conversion- almost certainly commissioned for the UK market (#)- used the "Mountain Dew" sign, despite the fact it wasn't sold here at the time.

 

Playing Tapper on my friend's BBC B in the mid-80s was first and the only place I'd heard of it. IIRC I didn't even know what it actually was until they launched it in the UK in the mid-90s. (##)

 

Anyway, I guess what I'm saying is that "Mountain Dew" will always be connected to Tapper for me, so I'd rather have that sign anyway. :) Sorry! :-D

 

 

(#) The BBC Micro's market share outside the UK was negligible; even here, it was pretty "second tier" in terms of game support, being primarily successful in the education field.

 

(##) Then withdrew it again a few years later. They reintroduced the name for an energy drink a while back, but it's definitely not the same product. (That's assuming the 90s "Dew" was the same as the US version anyway.)
