You [are] thrust into [a] rough and tumble space bar, clearly the outsider, forced to prove yourself in a true game of wits and agility: computer air hockey. It was a simple game for simple times: a handful of wacky alien characters, mild nudity, and an animated screen crack when your opponent scored. Ah to go back for one more round.
— Putney, Dean "Nostalgia: Shufflepuck Café" from Cult of Mac
This pack includes three distinct variants:
- Version 1.0: The game as published. Copy protection has been patched away, but even its nonfunctional remnants apparently cause crashes in higher systems: on winning a match in OS 7.5.5 and 8.6, and on launching the game in OS 9.2.2.
- Version 14C: A nearly-complete pre-release build, with a cheat menu and zero copy protection. This version is playable all the way to OS 9.2.2, although graphical glitches were noted in OS 7.0.1. (Other minuscule differences include the icon, about box, and title screen copyright.)
- Version 14C with nudity: Some anonymous hacker modified one PICT resource so that Princess Bejin exposes her breast when she serves. While we're not generally in the business of supplying nude patches, this one has attained urban legend status—to the point of being mentioned in an academic paper.
If using an emulator, fullscreen mode is recommended so that the mouse doesn't stray off the screen.
An earlier prototype, Shufflepuck, has some additional features.
This game is also available in color for Amiga, DOS and Atari ST.
ZIP file added as second DL for use with emulators.
