We've been waiting for Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded, the fancy remastered mobile version of the classic adventure game, for quite a while. And just one day after the game went live in the Play Store last month, it was pulled for technical issues and sent back to the drawing board to iron out some last-minute kinks. But you can't keep a good sleaze down: your favorite lovable letch is back, ready for returning gamers and new players.

Developer Replay Games didn't add a changelog to the updated version of Leisure Suit Larry, and the game-breaking bugs from the original build were never really explained. But based on the first few reviews after the game went live for the second time, whatever plagued the launch seems to have been fixed. The game is free to download and players can access the first level without paying, but after that, it's a $10 $5 in-app purchase for the full version. Those who quickly bought the game before should still have the purchase linked to their Google accounts.

The Android game is a remastered version of Leisure Suit Larry In The Land Of The Lounge Lizards, the original 1987 DOS/Apple II game starring the titular Larry as a sleazy no-account boozer looking to score. (in a good way, I suppose.) The Android version gets much-improved HD graphics, full voice acting, and reworked animation to bring it up to snuff with the latest 2D adventure titles. Check out the playable "Angry Broads" arcade game in the video above.

Leisure Suit Larry certainly isn't for kids, but you probably won't get anything more than a disapproving glance if Aunt Hilda should catch you playing it at Thanksgiving. If you want more Android games from creator Al Lowe, it would behoove you to at least download the free portion of the game.

    Guess I'll install this one for a rainy day. They just missed my last business trip. I'm sure this would have been a hit for the plane. haha

    It's on my wishlist. Now bring back space quest, and I'll buy without thinking...

    I actually noticed it back in the store about a week ago. One major issue I had on the first release of this game was that sometimes when you entered a room or screen it was totally black. All of the scenery and characters were still there and u needed to interact with them but the whole screen was black which made it very difficult to play. If you could manage to find an exit and leave the screen and come back, it was sometimes fixed upon re-entry but the issue showed up over and over, leading me to believe it was one if the reasons the game was pulled.

    Yay! The narration was fantastic. I just don't want to do the first hour of it again to get to where I left off before I uninstalled.

      • Stephan

  • Paul Trowe

    Why does it say $10 when it's only $4.99? Did the reviewer even pay for the game or was he going off of information we posted 3 months ago?????

      Fix your game, man. It won't run after the initial maturity questions. Fix your game.

        We're working on it dude. It's not crashing on any of our devices at Replay or N-Fusion so we can't replicate the problem. We're working directly with Google and their QA department since they're going to feature it but we need to find out why it's crashing first.

    I bought the full version but every time I call a taxi I'm asked to purchase it again. If I say no, it exits, if I say yes, it says I've already purchased. What do I do? And if I exit the app and open it again, I have to start all over. What's worse? It has my achievements saved but does not have a game to load. Every time I open I have to do the age verification and go through the whole opening again and again. How do I save? How do I proceed? Please help me! I know I'm going to like this game.
