Following on the heels of the unexpected surprise hit Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards, Al Lowe strikes again with Leisure Suit Larry Goes Looking for Love! (In Several Wrong Places). Still utilizing the parser-driven interface of the original game, Looking for Love ships on six 360K floppies, with each disk featuring a particular area for Larry to explore. Linear adventuring is required, with no backtracking to areas previously completed (hint: get all items before moving on).
Social diseases, rude, lewd and crude behavior, adult-language, sexual situations — all the elements that made the original a hit are featured along with illogical (as well as logical) thinking in some cases. This second chapter in Larry's pursuits is known for the introduction of Passionate Patti (a character featured in two later titles in the series), jokes about Larry's receding hairline, and the collaboration with Bil Skirvin as art director on the series.
The storyline of Looking for Love requires Larry to interact with a much larger cast of characters, locales and organizations. Follow Larry's adventures in Los Angeles (Hollywood, Eve's house, drugstore, etc.), on television shows ("The Dating Connection" and "The Lucky Bucko Lottery Show"), a cruise ship (U.S.S. Love Tub), a lifeboat, Nontoonyt Island, an airport, and a tropical resort with jungles, beaches and cliffs (oh my!). Encounter killer bees, quicksand, witch doctors, gorgeous women, Dr. Nonookie, a volcano, and much more as you help Larry go Looking for Love. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
