The game by Bally Midway where you throw acohol at people. Unless it's root beer.

We've had Tapper on Sega Retro for a few years now, because for some reason most of the home ports credit Sega. I just discovered the other day what could be a reason for this - Sega published the arcade game in Japan:

Japanese Tapper cabinets are somewhat hard to come by... and in fact I'm not entirely sure dedicated cabinets even exist. Either way it's exceedingly rare and obviously undocumented.

MAME has a ROM set for what appears to be a Japanese version of Tapper - rather than have adverts for Budweiser, the signs are changed to plug Suntory. Do we know what the situation is with this - that above magazine scan seems to suggest this was the variant distributed by Sega, but if you run the set in MAME, the game still credits Bally Midway.

Bonus points if you can work out if Spy Hunter was given similar treatment.
