Gameplay: This is a comedic/erotic adventure game played with joystick and keyboard. You’re Larry the lovable loser in a leisure suit and looking to get laid. Prostitutes, blow-up dolls, no female in the game is safe from Larry’s mojo. I first played this on my Commodore 64 when I was 13. I remember having to answer a series of questions at the beginning of the game to prove I was 18 years old….or 13 years old with a lot of patience. I still remember the password found written on the washroom stall door: “Ken Sent Me.” It allowed passage by the protective pimp to the prostitute’s lair. Distract the pimp by turning on the TV with the remote control so Larry could go upstairs and get it on. The game also contained messages of safe sex. If there’s no jimmy used when you’re with the lady of the night, things get scary for poor Larry. Classic.
