Let’s start with a classic, and ease our way in from there.
Since its humble beginnings in the late 80s, the madcap exploits of the affable Larry Laffer have been delighting audiences with their tongue-in-cheek irreverence, and more innuendo than you can shake a particularly phallic stick at. Your goal in these point and click adventures is to meet and seduce attractive ladies before introducing them to the more compelling parts of your pants. You’ll be stymied on multiple occasions however, not just by rebuffed affections, but by the many hazards that await you at every turn. Most famously, you can die in the opening moments of the original game simply by walking out into the road and getting hit by a car. Be sure to spare the details on that one when you arrive at St Peter’s gate.
Trying to decide which of the many titles in this franchise to opt for is a tricky bit of business (as long as it’s not the atrocious 2004 reboot, Magna Cum Laude), but the general consensus is that the seventh entry, Love for Sail, is the big winner. Its animation may be fairly dated by today’s standards, and the puns range from cringeworthy to bang-your-head-in-the-door-frame-until-you-pass-out-worthy, but it’s all a bit of fun, and has enough challenges, surprises and sight gags to keep you entertained for hours. It’s available at a low cost on Steam and GOG, as well as a bevy of other Larry titles in the series.
Also, that theme song is pure auditory sax.
