  • Finally, the game is available for iPhone and iPad for about $5:

    At first I really struggled with the touch interface. Then, after I learned that you can "hold/long tap" to bring up the verb wheel on any part of the screen, gameplay become became much, much easier.

    I'm really loving playing it on my phone.

    I just hope they tweak the interface a bit for the next Larry game and also include the option for labeled hotspots.

    Yes, they actually put that in a game released in 2013. This remake could have been so much better.

  • Just purchased the game now. My god. I love how the game looks. Everything looks great. So far I can't find the password to get through the door at lefty's, but after doing a series of guess the answer to questions I haven't heard of I finally got into the game.

    I'll I can say is that I got my butt kicked by the alley goon. Painful to witness.

  • This game has been slated as one of the worst games ever to be released this year! Reviews of it are not friendly, calling it a relic of the past that should have stayed there, and that no one wants to play as some womanizing pathetic person anymore. Harsh.

    And yet, the overwhelming majority of backers seem absolutely thrilled with it -- it's got a 5-star rating on Amazon and an 8.8 user score on Metacritic. One of the more poorly-reviewed games of the year, yes; but a lot of that I feel is down to the reviews themselves, some of which have been completely ridiculous in their criticisms.

    The successful Kickstarter of it says otherwise.

    Also I like the look of the Retail version:

    But since it doesn't include a Steam key I'm not going to buy it. Too bad.

  • Started playing the game last night. First LSL game I've played. Loving it. Lots of fun thus far!

  • I need to do a short animated thing of Larry now. Just looking at the game's look makes me feel like i'm watching a Ralph Bakshi cartoon.

  • I'm really hoping this game does well, because I'd love to see the next Larry game get a much bigger budget in order to provide lots more animation and areas to explore.

    While I loved LSL:R and highly recommend it...

    My wish list for the next new Larry game:

    -improved interface (a must)
    -this goes with previous item, but I'd like the option for labeled hotspots.
    -more nudity. A few more bare breasts never hurt anyone. Yes, I said it.
    -smoother animation (and more animation in all the scenes)
    -more areas to explore

    I just got my premium Kickstarter Larry loot. :)

    I'm really loving the art of Larry Reloaded book, and the old school big box is great (I'm getting really nostalgic just reading the blurbs on the back). :)

    I'll be wearing the Lefty's shirt quite a bit, I'm sure (I really like the look of Larry on the back of this one, he's got the same design as the cover, but the coloring looks better - I'm still not completely sold on the cover art, but I'll admit it does look better printed than on the screen).
