Lascivious Larry Laffer begins his trek through the annals of computer history with the release of Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards, created by Mark Crowe (of Space Quest fame), humorist Al Lowe, and designed by Chuck Benton. Larry's main objectives in the parser-driven adventure are to score with chicks, get rich, score with chicks, lose his nerdish tendencies, and, well, score with chicks.
To achieve all 222 possible points in the adventure, Larry will need to visit a number of locations such as Lefty's Bar, a convenience store (need that breath spray), hotel suites and penthouse, discos and cabarets, alleyways, elevators, and more. Filled with suggestive themes and adult-based innuendo, Land of the Lounge Lizards is a light-hearted look at a middle-aged man trying to capture the swinging life that he feels has passed him by (he lived with his mother until the age of 38).
The task of finding the girl of Larry's dreams won't be easy due to several factors: looks, bad breath, lack of money and opportunity, only one night in the casinos at Lost Wages (a.k.a. Glitzy Gulch), lame pick-up lines, and a penchant for over-estimating his allure to women. Fortunately, with over 900 words in the parser dictionary, a leisure suit, common sense, logical thinking, luck, and dogged determination, the quest is not impossible as you interact to each situation in the attempt to create an irresistible Larry.
Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards won the very first Software Publisher's Association "Best Fantasy, Role Playing or Adventure Game" award in 1987. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
