DescriptionPassionate Patti in Pursuit of the Pulsating Pectorals! is the third game in Al Lowe's Leisure Suit Larry series. Larry Laffer has finally found the woman of his dreams, and can happily live with her together on the beautiful tropical island... until he gets thrown out of the house by his wife. His boss, who happens to be his (now ex-) father-in-law, fires him. Larry is all alone, without a woman, without a job, on an island that has long ceased to be a "tropical paradise" and is exploited by entertainers, lawyers, and alike. But never despair! Dressed in his irresistible leisure suit, Larry is about to conquer the world (or at least its female population) anew. Watch out, fairer sex, because Larry is back to his swinging self!
The game uses the same text-based interface and the same graphical engine as the previous entry in the series. The structure of the game, however, is more similar to that of the first installment: most of the time, the player is confined to one large area which can be freely explored. Unlike the two previous Larry games, the player does not just control Larry, but also - in the second half of the game - the enigmatic and beautiful pianist Patti, helping them to reach an ending that will finally bring happiness into Larry's life.

Age verificationSimilar to the first game, the player has to answer a series of trivia questions when starting the game. However, this time failing to do so does not prevent the user from playing the game, but removes various instances of nudity and sex.
CameoThe game's creator Al Lowe has been known to work himself into all his games. This is no exception, check the corner of the comedy club.
Polyester PattyThe game was intended to be named Polyester Patty in Pursuit of the Pulsating Pectorals. When Larry encountered the female protagonist for the first time in his second adventure, her name was Polyester Patty. It was then changed to Passionate Patty.
Processor speedLarry has to build his muscles in the Fat City health club by doing some heavy exercise on four stations. Each exercise needs to be repeated several times to be effective. However, the number of repetitions necessary is directly proportional to the clock frequency of your processor. The game was developed on an 16 MHz 386, which resulted in 21 repetitions each. That was quite manageable. Unfortunately, new processors tend to be faster each year. On a decent Pentium 233, Larry has to heave the weights 510 times; take that times four (the different machines) and times two (weight up, weight down), and you come to 4080 keystrokes. This is indeed heavy exercise.
The game also has timing issues, and if you have a processor higher than a Pentium, you'll encounter them if you decide to use the casino's elevator to go up to Patti's apartment, and it doesn't arrive immediately. You'll also encounter these issues if you watch Cherri Tart dance because she doesn't get tired. These issues are overcome by setting the game's speed to maximum and waiting 10-15 minutes.
