    The right game at the right price.

    Root Beer Tapper is one of the lesser-known classics of the golden age of arcade games way back in the early 80's. Therefore it's good to see it make a new appearance on XBOX Live here in good 'ol modern times. In it, yo... Read Full Review

    Not very popular, but still good

    This game isn't very popular, but it's still good. I saw it on the Xbox Live Marketplace and it looked like a good game so I got it, and I'm glad I did. The whole object of the game is to serve all the patrons their roo... Read Full Review

    A basic game that is fun and somewhat addictive.

    Root Beer Tapper is a good kind of Xbox Live Arcade game. It is retro, has good (albeit not great) graphics, but more importantly, it has game play that captivates and compels one to keep on playing! In short, it's a sma... Read Full Review

    An addictive game that is solid and very hard but still maintains the fun factor.

    This game is the baby brother of the arcade game "Tapper" way back in the 80s. Now it hits Xbox Live Arcade and is still as addictive as twenty years ago. The gameplay is the same as twenty years ago. You send ... Read Full Review

    Fresh from the golden age of video games!

    This game is and always has been outstanding! Fast paced, exciting and hard as all get out later on, you'd be a fool to think it's simple and strategy-free. If you've played it before you'll want to play it again, if y... Read Full Review

    Not the best XBLA game out there, but it's fun for about five minutes.

    Okay the reason this game and almost every other retro game gets a low score is that they are not as fun as they used to be. Don't waste your money on this or most of the other retro games out there. The only old schoo... Read Full Review

    Too much foam.

    You will not find any bias rants about this "classic" in this review. I am one of the only person in their twenties who have not played this growing up. I guess I didn't have it on my ol' Commodore 64 or my NES... Read Full Review

    A fun game to play now and then, especially on Xbox Live, but nothing special I'll be talking about in a couple years.

    Root Beer Tapper is fun. If not for Xbox Live it'd be terrible. It's fun to compete on Xbox live but you're basically playing the same first 3 levels again and again and again. I'm not saying it's a terrible game, but... Read Full Review

    Easy to learn...difficult to master.

    Root Beer Tapper is something you can easily get the hang of. The only problem is being able to master the game. There are a great selection of levels in the game and as you progress further they obviously get harder. Th... Read Full Review
