Tapper – Episode 072

Pull a stool up to the bar and prepare to be overpoured as we talk about Bally Midway’s ode to the service industry, Tapper.

Who was actually behind this strategic bartending simulator? How did a marketing opportunity lead to a lot of bad PR? Exactly who is this overworked bartender? How did Yakity-Yak Talking Teeth  lead to Wacko, Timber, and Journey (and even to Golden Tee and Street Fighter: The Movie)?

Plus plenty of chit-chat like a cautionary tale about clearing your Game Boy camera’s memory before selling it, rocking out to some Clown Core, reminiscing about being tricked into learning stuff when playing Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, and discussing the love letter to 90s beat ‘em ups that is TMNT Shredder’s Revenge.
