"Tapper World Tour revitalizes a retro hit not just for longtime fans like me, but new gamers that never had the distinct pleasure of stepping up to a Tapper cabinet in a smoky arcade." (IGN - 8.5 out of 10)

"If you were a fan of the original Tapper games or if you enjoy a good fast-paced arcade experience, then Tapper World Tour will satisfy." - TouchArcade

"Constructed with quality top of mind, this is a superb remake and a shining example of how to do arcade gameplay right on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad." - (Pocketgamer 8 out of 10)


Tapper, the beloved 1980s arcade classic, makes its long awaited debut in an all-new version made exclusively for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad! In Tapper World Tour, youll serve drinks to an eccentric cast of characters across a variety of outlandish locations.

The goal is to continue serving drinks until all patrons are pushed out of the bar. As the game progresses, the customers become harder to please, appear more frequently, request different drinks, move faster and get pushed back shorter distances. Collect tips to gain lives all-new power-ups to gain an advantage, or activate the live entertainment to distract patrons while you catch up with their drink orders.

KoolKing's comments:

Initial Impressions:

Quite a fun update of the classic arcade game. There are both a "story" campaign as well as endless modes with a good number of different locations/backgrounds. You can gain upgrades and powerups (freeze time, extra life, etc) as you go along. Two different player characters to choose from, although I haven't tried the female one yet so I don't know if it is purely a cosmetic change. Controls are a choice between either direct touch or virtual d-pad, and you can pause and change mid-game. Both work well but I found the d-pad gave more of a classic feel to the game. There also seems to be a few mini games that pop up during the campaign and can also be played on their own. Leaderboards and achievements through GameCenter. The Don Bluth animations are very well done.

There is no classic mode, as far as I can tell, unfortunately. It would have been a great unlockable. If you are a fan of the original, this is well worth the asking price.

Just gave this a go and I really like it. The visual style is brilliant, and it takes me back to the good old Tapper Days.

I was so excited when I saw this was out. Then I saw the memory size and now I have to think about it.
