Back in the 1980s, when just about anything seemed like a good idea for an arcade game, a game called Tapper came along to show kids that they too could pursue a career in bartending. Jumping on the iOS booze wagon, Tapper: World Tour is an updated version with graphics from Dragon’s Lair animator Don Bluth.
Some of the locations in the Tapper: World Tour include Vancouver, Nashville, Cancun, Rio de Janeiro, and Hollywood. In addition to the main gameplay of sliding drinks to customers before they pile up, Tapper: World Tour will also include minigames, like a variation on Whack-a-Mole.
The most interesting thing to us about Tapper: World Tour is the art style. We’re curious exactly how much involvement Don Bluth had with the development team. Warner Bros tells us he helped create the “worldwide watering holes”, but it’s less clear about whether he also designed Tapper: World Tour’s large cast of colorful barflies.
Warner Brothers hasn’t revealed a release date yet, saying only that the game will be available in the coming months.
