The game follows the life of Larry Laffer, a loveable loser who is a balding, dorky, double entendre-speaking, leisure suit-wearing "lady’s man". The games follow Larry as he spends much of his life trying, unsuccessfully, to seduce attractive women.
The first game in the series, Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards, was first published in 1987 and helped build the Sierra On-Line dynasty. Featured in a score of original software titles since then (not even counting numerous anthologies, repackagings, and cameo appearances), the series’ namesake hero, Larry Laffer, is a bumbling, persistent everyman who just wants to be loved. Is that so wrong?
With the help of Al Lowe, Larry’s progenitor and designer of all of Larry’s classic adventures, Replay Games is remaking the landmark first game for an entire new generation (or two!). Expanded and enhanced in every detail and ready for both mobile devices and PCs, Larry is being reborn for the players who might’ve seen their parents (or grandparents!) playing Larry behind closed doors!
Expanded Content – Who says a remake has to just be the same game with new graphics? Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded enters the 21st century and brings with it expanded puzzles, locations, women, humor, and gameplay.
Modern, Hand-Drawn Graphics – Larry was great in big fat pixels 25 years ago, but this is the age of the retina display. Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded has gorgeous hi-res, hand-drawn art, and animation to show off his irresistible face and the stunning women he meets
It wouldn’t be Leisure Suit Larry without the humor – Larry is the ultimate Casanova wannabe, but his “flirting” rarely goes as planned. Along with rejections, fans will laugh at thousands of hilarious responses while they explore everything on screen.
Non-mobile players will hear professional voiceover actors
A Symphony for the Ears – Gamers will hear an all-new Vegas-style musical score from Grammy-nominated, BAFTA-winning composer Austin Wintory. The soundtrack features all authentic instrumentation and Al Lowe guest-starring on the sax!
Naughty, but Nice – Larry is a man on the make, and the game drips with innuendos, flirts with perversity, and oozes sexuality. But Larry has always been about comedy, and never been explicit. Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded retains that standard. There's no full-frontal nudity, no four-letter words, and no on-screen sex.
I was happy to find Leisure suit Larry here and reminded me of good old days with some nostalgy. But on the other hand the jokes and humor doesn't come that well anymore. Ok it's fun but feeling very old compared to other like baphomet that remain much better.

Great effort on the developer's side in bringing this back to life! However, this Mac version on Retina does not display the full "wide-screen" picture. I don't remember if that alters the ultimate gameplay, but it sure is annoying. Even the preview pictures show screenshots in widescreen, but alas that does not happen in reality (at least not on my MBP(R)). Would love to see an update.

I had this game on 3.5 disks at one time in life in the earlier days of computers. it is wonderful to have it come back and be able to play it again in my MAC. The story is from the 70's so have fun with it and enjoy helping Larry get out of jams. ha ha ha....
