This is a classic text-parser-with-moving-onscreen-actors adventure game from the early 90's. In this game you are a tech specalist for a company. (Basically Les is the poster child for nerds all over the US.) Your goal is to win the Search for Elvis contest and win the heart of the girl of your dreams. You might even wind up a superstar.

In an interview, Leisure Suit Larry creator Al Lowe once expressed his dislike of this game, calling it a bad rip-off of LSR.


There is a Bart Simpson riding on a skateboard that will go by when you are inside building that has glass doors.
