With a brand new story line, stunning graphics, challenging gameplay, and animations from the legendary Don Bluth, it’s up to you…SERVE OR BE SERVED! “I’M BACK!!!” The beloved bartender Sam is back, and this time he has company.

    You've probably already played at least one variation of the Tapper formula, but World Tour is still worth checking out, and not just for the incredible visuals. The game is a perfect fit for iOS, with intuitive controls and bite-sized stages.

    The classic gameplay is improved by the new wrinkles, such as having to serve the right drinks to specific customers.

    A spot on remake that looks great too. [June 2011, p.87]

    Tapper World Tour is a shot of fun arcade gameplay and colourful graphics that will have you asking for a second round.

    Excluding the weak mini games, Tapper World Tour is pretty good fun. It's not long before it's quite tough, but it is fairly addictive.

    A wonderful homage to one of the most beloved games of all time.

    Just when it seemed there was no hope of Midway's ancient arcade classic ever being dusted down for the mobile generation, up pops this bright and breezy tribute to insatiable alcoholism.

    Really great game staying true to the original. Really nice graphics, some updated gameplay and a "story" as well. This might even be something for my wife. Expand
