Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards for MS-DOS PCs is a classic adult game. 40-year old virgin Larry Laffer heads to town looking for love, riches and a new life-style. Visiting a number of places, interacting with a host of characters, gambling to support himself, and pushing the envelope of questionable behavior, Larry seeks to lose his virginity.
Being that said, the plot of the game is quite simple: you have to score with a female within 24 hours.
Nostalgic point and click gameplay makes Leisure Suit Larry accessible to gamers of any skill level. Like the original, you have to answer some questions after you are asked to enter your age. After you have entered it, the game attempts to prove it. If you don’t know an answer to a couple, you can press CTRL-ALT-X to bypass this part. However, be advised that the game then asks you a question that refers to the documentation that comes with the game box.
The 1987 adventure gets a facelift in the 1991 remake. The game features substitution of the old “type-'til-you-bleed” (quoting creator Al Lowe) gameplay method with a point-and-click interface developed by Sierra. Complete new backgrounds and animation supporting 256-color VGA graphics replace the '87 technology.
The only thing this remake loses compared to the original is the freedom of interaction. With six different icons and the possibility to interact with almost every object, there is enough place for experimenting, but the magic of typing anything, hoping it will produce some wacky effect is gone. But this relative lack of freedom pays for all the problems the original text interface created.
Unsure of how the game would be received, Sierra's management chose to release the game with no publicity or advertising budget. In 1996, Computer Gaming World ranked it as the 69th best game of all time, also ranking it as the fifth most funny computer game.
