Tapper, even in its original arcade version, has always been a promotional game: the player didn't just serve some anonymous beer to his customers, but Budweiser specifically. Which didn't stop the game from being marketed commercially; of course, kids still had to pay to play. Over the decades, this culture changed a little. With the advent of home systems, the wide availability of development frameworks, capable operating system APIs and an abundance of developers as well as cheap data transfer media, promotional games coming with a price tag slowly disappeared, replaced by 'free' ones (i.e. without costs).

A very simple game for quick fun. Its attractiveness is caused by its original theme: As a waiter you have to serve the rushing-in customers.

But they are very impatient. Aparantely they are alcoholics. Their appearance points to that: unkempt beards and hair hidden under (probably) greasy hats. But also their behaviour lets you become suspicious about their addiction. They can't even wait for their beer (the game does not know other drinks) for some seconds. No, they need it immediately! And if you do not serve them at once, they will pull you over the bar.
