Leisure Suit Larry is back! The series, which debuted way back in 1987 with Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards, is now out on Nintendo Switch (and PlayStation 4) thanks to Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry – rated M for Mature. It’s also the first game in more than 20 years to star Larry Laffer – the original Larry -since the two games released in 2004 and 2009 – Magna Cum Laude and Box Office Bust – actually featured Larry Lovage, Laffer’s nephew. Are you ready for a new point and click adventure for the 21st century?

Speaking of that, the premise for Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry has Larry Laffer waking up in a dark room with no recollection of how he got there. He manages to finds a manhole elevator thing that conveniently leaves him outside of Lefty’s, the famous bar in the franchise. Lefty himself is inside of the bar, and it is here that he drops the bomb: Larry has been missing for decades now, and he’s currently in the 21st century! After the initial shock wears off, Larry resumes doing what he believes he does best: chasing women. Some things never change, huh?

While in the bathroom at Lefty’s, Larry finds a rather particular item: a PiPhone that someone seems to have left behind. As if that wasn’t weird enough, it turns out that this is not an ordinary PiPhone, as it’s actually a prototype that, if found, should be immediately returned to Bill Jobs (BJ) at the Prune Headquarters. While doing this, Larry meets BJ’s assistant, Faith. Smitten by her, he tries to woo Faith, but she quickly lets him know she doesn’t bother with dating someone unless he has a score of 90 on Timber, the most popular dating app out there. Because of this, Larry has no option but to try and date other women by way of Timber to be able to improve his overall score.

Once you return the prototype PiPhone, you will get a voucher for a new regular PiPhone as a thank you for your troubles. Call up the phone with the + button, and you’ll be able to access its apps to help you in the game. You can travel between locations thanks to the always handy Unter, or you might perhaps want to check the many unforgettable moments you have experienced by checking your Instacrap account. You’ll later get to install Timber on your phone after completing a couple of objectives.

Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry is a point and click adventure, but it controls a bit differently from what you might be used to. You can actually move Larry around the screen with the left analog stick, which is helpful for locations that are bigger than the one screen you start in. You will need to move a cursor around with the right analog stick, and then click on the A button to interact with things or characters. The Y button is for your inventory, while the X button is for taking a closer look. Playing the game for this Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry review, I ended up playing half of the adventure on the TV and half in Portable mode by using the touchscreen, and both worked as intended, so it’s basically up to preference.

In each location that you explorer, there will be different items for you to collect and use to help you solve puzzles and thus move the story forward. Without spoiling some of the later puzzles in the game, I’ll talk about how you get the PiPhone in the first place. When you enter the bathroom after feeling sick from drinking a craft beer, you notice that a pile of gunk on the floor is vibrating. By collecting a broomstick near the sink and a roll of toilet paper near the toilet, you can go into your inventory to combine them and then use the makeshift whatchamacallit to remove some of the gunk so that you can grab what Larry calls a small glowing box. You can expect more puzzles in which you need to combine items, so be sure to think a bit outside of the box every now and then!

Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry is a great looking, new take on the long-running series. It’s always been a series that has skewed towards being for a more adult subset of players, hence why on Nintendo Switch it’s rated M for Mature. The writing, humor, and overall setup for the game is going to rub some people the wrong way, so it’s definitely not going to be for everyone. Depending on your experience with point and click adventure games, you’re looking at around 8-10 hours to be able to see everything the game has to offer, which is not bad for its $39.99 asking price.
