DescriptionShape Up or Slip Out!
is the fifth game in Al Lowe's Leisure Suit Larry
series. All the events from the previous games are forgotten. Larry is once again single, and again his goal is to capture the interest of various ladies. By sheer coincidence, Larry finds himself on a TV Game Show called "Stallions". He wins a weekend at the Spa Resort, La Costa Lotta. Naturally, there are some beautiful women in the spa who are just dreaming about such a wonderful, handsome man as Larry! Uh... or is it really so? It is the player's goal to find out!
This instalment focuses more on conversations with women and puzzles than on the storyline. The entire game is spent at La Costa Lotta. There are plenty of traditional inventory-based puzzles to solve in the game. Larry can die, but the player is allowed to try again every time that happens, without the need to restore a saved game. This is also the first Larry game with SVGA graphics, and voice-overs in the CD version.

TriviaShape Up or Slip Out
features a song called Cell Block Love
, in line with several of Sierra
’s early-90s adventure games (cf. King’s Quest VI
’s Girl in the Tower
, The Dagger of Amon Ra
’s Archaeologist Song
, Freddy Pharkas’ Ballad of Freddy Pharkas
). While the original DOS version only displays the lyrics along with the MIDI track, the CD release has full instruments and vocals.
The song, performed in the game by the country singer Burgundy in La Costa Lotta’s Blues Bar, is a tongue-in-cheek homage to the first Police Quest
game, another Sierra series. In the lyrics, the former prostitute Marie Wilkans tells about her meeting and falling in love with Sonny, Police Quest
’s protagonist. The full lyrics:
The boys could find my number written by the telephone,
The sort of girl a Lytton man could take, then leave alone.
In high school I was voted Miss Congeniality,
But then I asked myself, "Why am I doin' it fer free?"
I knew when you grew up next door, you had a crush on me.
You'd been the high school quarterback, then joined the L. P. D.
That night you caught me hookin' and you hauled me off to jail,
You wrapped your arms around me and you held me without bail!
The lifeline that you threw me were the handcuffs that you used.
You left my heart locked up, and my wrists a little bruised.
You brought me down for questioning, I had to say, "I do!"
Your kisses sentenced me to life in Cell Block Love with you.
I sit alone and cry when you refuse to wear your vest.
I never know if you'll come home or take one in the chest.
I sit and stare when you won't wear your firearm like you should.
I know someday they'll find you, dear, flatlinin' in the 'hood!
I pray you're just unfaithful when you don't come home 'til two.
Perhaps I oughtta go back out and hit the streets like you.
We sure could use the extra cash, for bills we've plenty of,
And you could run me in, like on the night we fell in love!
I waive my right to silence, here's the statement that I'll sign:
I do confess to lovin' you and wantin' you fer mine!
Is it so wrong, a workin' girl who loves a man in blue?
I hope I never make parole from Cell Block Love with you.
It's never solitary here in Cell Block Love with you.
My prison address, darlin', is in Cell Block Love with you!
The music was composed by Al Lowe
, with words by Josh Mandel
