The third chapter of Larry Laffer's saga gets a number in the title and a new hero, heroine actually, to play. His search rewarded with wedded bliss at the end of chapter two, Larry loses his love at the beginning of Leisure Suit Larry 3: Passionate Patti in Pursuit of the Pulsating Pectorals when he discovers his wife Kalalau in the hot tub with Bobbi, a lesbian Amazonian biker chick. Adding insult to mental anguish, Larry is relieved of his Natives, Inc. duties on the Nontoonyt Island resort.
Devastated, Larry dons his leisure suit once again with a single-minded purpose of scoring with every available girl on the island. After humorous results with Tawni (beach), Cherri (showgirl), Suzi (lawyer), and Bambi (aerobics instructor), Larry finally makes it big with Passionate Patti, a gorgeous entertainer at a piano bar who is very satisfied with her new lover. Unfortunately, the "morning after" brings about a huge misunderstanding and Larry departs for a celibate life in the jungle.
At this point, you control Patti in her search for Larry as she encounters the Bamboo Jungle (a 72-screen maze puzzle of which only 20 are the correct path), a stream, cliff, chasm, feral pigs, and the River of Doom (arcade sequence). Cannibals, the Police Quest set, Space Quest's prop area, Princess Rosella and even Roberta Williams aren't safe from your wandering journey before Patti and Larry end up in a cozy mountain cabin.
As in many early Sierra games, the secondary goal to finishing the game is to amass points by achieving specific tasks, in this case 4,000 (about 60% with Larry, 40% with Patti). Early versions of the game allowed accumulation of additional points through a glitch at the piano bar (type "look at piano" and then "get tips" repeatedly), but with no effect on gameplay. Chapter three is the last game in the series to utilize a parser-driven interface.
Riddled with innuendo, adult humor, insults and lewd behavior, Passionate Patti in Pursuit of the Pulsating Pectorals infuses the series with tongue-in-cheek shenanigans to be enjoyed by Leisure Suit Larry's fans.
Passionate Patti in Pursuit of the Pulsating Pectorals! is the third game in Al Lowe's Leisure Suit Larry series. The protagonist Larry Laffer has finally found the woman of his dreams, and can happily live with her together on the beautiful tropical island... until he gets thrown out of the house by his wife. His boss, who happens to be his (now ex-) father-in-law, fires him. Larry is all alone, without a woman, without a job, on an island that has long ceased to be a "tropical paradise" and became exploited by entertainers, lawyers, and alike. But never despair! Dressed in his irresistible leisure suit, Larry is about to conquer the world (or at least its female population) anew. Watch out, fairer sex, because Larry is back to his swinging self!
Passionate Patti uses the same text-based interface and the same graphical engine as the previous game. Unlike the two previous Larry games, you not only control Larry, but also - in the second half of the game - the enigmatic and beautiful pianist Patti, helping them to reach an ending that will finally bring happiness into Larry's life.
Larry has settled down on Nontoonyt Island with his wife, whom he married in the second game. He has a job and a house, and life is treating him well - until the day his wife throws him out, leaving him for a girl. Poor Larry! His world crumbles around him, and he falls into a deep despair ... until he remembers that he is the one and only Larry Laffer! Join Larry as he once again goes out looking for female companions.
The game introduces a completely new feature in the genre: the ability to switch between characters in mid-game! This enables you to get more of Larry's story, and at the same time it is incredibly well done - a BIG step in the right direction! Larry is slowly becoming a great game!
There are a lot of useful things in the manual, cleverly disguised as ads and such, so you might want to look in there if you ever get stuck. As for the graphics, they are the best in the LSL series so far, as you would expect for the latest game. The music and sounds, however, are average. But the game is still fun for any fan of this genre.
