Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded Review

Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded Review

Aug 28, 2013

There are games that try to be cautious about how they present certain topics. For those out there looking for a little something on the other end of the spectrum, Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded is something to take a look at. I don’t recall ever playing the original game, but Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded is a good time. It’s a combination of puzzle game and a late night comedy show. This game has quite a few things one would consider adult content and a few more most people would consider adult content.

In the first place Larry goes to, there are quite a few things to do and pick up. For example, he needs to buy a whiskey from the bartender, show the pimp some porn and talk to a hooker. Yeah, that’s just the demo portion of the game too.

Speaking of that, after toying around at the bar, it’s time to head out the the cab call box on the post outside. Continuing from here requires the full game to be purchased via in-app purchasing. I didn’t run into any issues like some people claimed in the reviews in the Google Play Store.

The controls tapping on the screen to invoke the menu or tell the game where to make Larry walk or touch. Keep touching everything and talking to everyone. There may be some useful information or something to be easily missed otherwise. There are two ways to get to the action menu. Press the icon at the bottom right of the screen, or long-press the screen. Long-pressing the screen will get you to a quick action menu. This way things like hailing a cab is easier.

I really like how Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded is actually challenging and not just comical and crude.
