Larry searches for more women to satisfy
In his previous adventure, traveling software salesman Larry Laffer outsmarted a few KGB agents, freed Nontoonyt Island from Dr. Nonookee, and met and married Kalalau. A few years later, Larry receives some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the island gets transformed into a beautiful tropical resort. The bad news is that Kalalau no longer is in love with Larry, suddenly dumping him with another woman, and Larry gets fired from his job at Natives, Inc. Luckily, Kalalau’s dumping of him gives Larry all the more reason to search the island for beautiful woman.
The game is divided into two sections. The first section has Larry searching for women and giving them something that would make them show their appreciation. To show it, you’ll get to watch a sex scene (there are five of them), which are rudely interrupted by someone or something.
At the start of the game, you are asked to enter your age then you will be asked a total of five questions, and a postcard can be seen on the left. The questions are a lot tougher than those in Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards
. When you answer a question correctly, the piece of black that is covering the woman is removed. Answer another question correctly, another piece of black will be removed, and so on. But, if you answer a question wrong, a piece of black re-appears. Actually, those pieces of black represent the level you’re about to play on.
There are five filth levels in the game: the “Mother Goose” level, the “Rather Risque” level, the “Pretty Dirty” level, the “Really Filthy”, and finally the “Totally Raunchiest” level. Here’s how it works: If you answered one or none of the questions correct, you’ll play the game at the “Mother Goose” level. If you get two questions right, you’ll get the “Rather Risque” level, and if you managed to get all five questions right, you’ll get the “Totally Raunchiest” level.
The raunchier the sex scenes get depends on what filth level you’re on. For example, Larry meets an exotic dancer who has sex with him. On the first four levels, you may think that this scene is not much at all, but at Filth Level #5, she fucks him. The same can be said with the aerobics instructor he’ll meet later in the game. Unless you have a very high depth of knowledge, chances are that you’ll get to a level other than #5. Well, at least the fifth level has a big effect, unlike the one in Leisure Suit Larry Goes Looking for Love (in several wrong places)
There are quite a number of funny bits about the game. For example, Larry walks into his lawyer's office where the lawyer gets turned on by his sexy appearance. While she fucks him on a couch, the sex scene gets interrupted by numerous phone calls.
Eventually, Larry will meet Passionate Patti, his one true love who sleeps with him in her penthouse. It isn’t that long before Larry storms off right after Patti says another man’s name. This is where the second section comes in. You take control of Patti who must find Larry on the other side of the bamboo jungle, and it won’t be an easy mission.
Like the previous adventure, Larry 3 features 16-color EGA graphics, which are more detailed than that of Larry 2. It has Adlib and Roland support. I enjoyed the music in some parts of the game. Too bad that there are hardly any sound effects in the game.
As enjoyable as it might be, if you have a fast computer, you’ll have trouble getting through some scenes in the game. For example, when you see the exotic dancer doing her stunt, she will make a billion spin-arounds before she stops dancing, and will never get tired. I suggest that you go to Al Lowe's site
where he discusses how to fix these problems.
The Bottom Line
I enjoyed this game, but if you are put off watching too many sex scenes, as the game would say, “you’ll be happier playing another game”. ****
