I came across an article in Video Games Magazine, Feb 1984 talking about an arcade game called Bouncer where you controlled a Bouncer in a bar (via a trackball) and moved around the bar floor and removing undesirable charactors before they bother other bar-going patrons. This company was Entertainment Sciences located in Huntington Beach, CA. This intrigued me so much as to Google the games title and I discovered that someone else had already devoted a whole website to this game and one other game, Turbo Sub created (but never released) from Entertainment Sciences, http://www.turbosub.com.

Check it out. I love stories like this. There is never a shortage of things to discover in this hobby :PAC

That boardset must have cost a fortune compared to most on the market.

The other, darker side of 'Tapper'. Looks like a fun game, actually. There should be specific commands for 'insult', 'collar n' tail', and 'throw in dumpster'.

We have video footage now of this elusive game. It was made here in Huntington Beach. I might try tracking down the folks responsible for this. They should start a Kickstarter campaign to fund the recreation of this game.
