Betty's Beer Bar Flash

JohnBBetty's Beer Bar is a great arcade-style indie game by Gabriel Gambetta and Esteban Guelvenzu of Mystery Studios. Much like the recent "flashification" of Professor Fizzwizzle, this online version Betty's Beer Bar serves as a quick taster of the downloadable version for Windows and MacOS.

betty.jpgThe game features a very simple mouse interface where you control Betty, the small town bartender with aspirations of running her own bar on the beach. Help her raise the money to fulfill her dreams by serving beer to customers as fast as you can.

Mugs are lined up on the counters behind the bar. When a customer saunters up, grab a mug, fill it, then deliver it to the patron. Afterwards you'll need to snatch the empty mug and wash it before re-filling. It can get hectic as time goes by and customers appear, guzzle their beer and vanish only to be replaced with another thirsty person.

The flash version only last a few minutes but gives you a really good taste of what the game is like. If you enjoyed the online version, take a step up and download the demo for even more bartending action. Play.

How do you really wash the mugs? Is there any difference between the red and the blue spots??

The main problems with games like this are both down to the repetition involved.
Psychologically, it becomes extremely dull to keep playing. You might as well just be clicking on coloured boxes to make them disappear - the game is not really involving unless you are heavily into 'serving beer'.
Even worse, physically, it hurts your wrist to click and click.

'Delivery' games like this are a very old idea, and have been around for a long time on home systems. Tapper could be called one, sort of, but games like Trashman definitely are similar. Being controlled with keys / joystick made them more arcadey and easier on your carpal tunnels over long periods.

There is also a sequel to this game. You are a cowgirl and shoot villains while you serve etc. It is too easy.

if you chose to put this up its up too you Jay but this game is really lame and I'd advise no one to play it

This is a pretty mind-numbing game... Grade: D. See above for reasons.

Yes I agree the game is pretty boring, a good alternative is diner dash/diner dash 2, they are fun addictive, and keep adding new aspects to the game so it doesnt become dull after awhile. (another amusing one is shopmania)

I was just about to suggest Diner Dash as an alternative, but I see Shauna already mentioned it. :)
It's a much more involved game: You are a waitress trying to establish a chain of restaurants (not saying it's realistic, but it's certainly fun).
