Game Introduction

This was one of the two games created by Entertainment Sciences. Besides the bouncer who you control, there are a few other characters in this game like a bartender and a waitress who are your friends in the business. There are drunks, fat slobs and pranksters, the antagonists, and the people who are good customers whom you must constantly cater to throughout the game.

The object of the game is to dispose of the customers who are giving the nightclub trouble while making sure the other customers leave The Ritz happy. The game has very intelligent animation and unique storylines.

Trivia

Bouncer was seen in the low budget martial arts film Ninja 3: The Domination. The game is in the main character's apartment and she is seen playing it. The main character becomes possessed by the spirit of a ninja, and as he overtakes her body, the arcade cabinet begins to bellow out smoke and hypnotizes her with a little laser show from the screen.
