Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards
DOSLarry on erinomaisen hauska peli, jonka ironinen huumori sai jopa minun rujon muotoni hymyyn. Larry voi juoda, pelata, tutustua epämääräisiin naisiin ja tehdä kaikkea muutakin vänkää.
DOSAll this would normally add up to nothing more than a low brow distraction or worse, a Japanese dating sim. The premise, however, is rescued expertly by the wit of Al Lowe who injects so much humor into the world of his loveable loser that you can't help but root for him as you laugh at his latest failure. Larry's failure, that is, not Al's.
MacintoshVery funny, provided you can see the humor in the sexual situations Larry is thrust into. Some people may be offended.
DOSIn the beginning there was Softporn. And Al Lowe saw it, and it was good… In 1981, Sierra released the game Softporn for the Apple II, one of the first adult adventure games to hit the marketplace for the burgeoning personal computer market and the only non-graphical game released by Sierra. Time featured the game in its first column on computer entertainment, and Sierra went on to sell 25,000 copies of the game. That figure isn’t particularly spectacular until you consider that, according to Al Lowe, there were only 100,000 Apple II computers on the market at the time.
Apple IIA game far more controversial that it deserved, this adventure involved Larry Laffer, one of the last wearers of Leisure Suits. He's entering the dating scene...with your help! Puzzles were amusing, and the Benny-Hill caliber gags were well played. Puzzles, artwork, and other elements, however, were just barely into the acceptable range. Be that as it may, Lara "Tomb Raider" Croft has gotten away with antics far more borderline sexist than this, so who am I to point fingers...?
