Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Dry Twice is a pretty raunchy point and click adventure game featuring a lot of innuendos and an over abundance of phallic imagery. The game is actually pretty solid though (that’s what she said as well, about the game of course).

Larry Laffer, a fine mix of disgusting, perverted, and charming.

The game’s main protagonist is Larry Laffer, a combination of detestable, perverted, sleazy, yet somewhat likeable character that grows on you against your will like a raging venereal disease. You tag along on his adventures and sexual encounters as he tries to find his one true love, a Miss Faith Less.

The game follows the tradition of point and click adventure games, take everything that isn’t nailed down.

The game starts on a relatively easy tutorial level, picking right off from the ending of the prequel. After you leave the starting island though, the game goes right back into the warm bosom of tried and true point and click adventure game puzzles. You basically steal everything that isn’t nailed down, unless you can remove the nail somehow, take said items and desperately click on them with each other in a feeble attempt to combine them into a key item you need to solve the puzzles with.

In addition to the default puzzles, the game has a blue print mechanic where you build a device. It’s straightforward but some items require a little bit of imagination and guess work.

The game is surprisingly challenging and most of the puzzles are well made. Point and click adventure games apply a very loose logical and narrative flow to the puzzle design and most of the time you can figure out what to do based on the subtle hints the game gives you through dialogue and level design. Occasionally though, a few puzzles are quite difficult and hard to guess the solution to so you end up brute forcing the solution by trying out every item combination. This does create some frustration but it only happens very infrequently.

Look forward to a lot of innuendos.

The dialogue is well written and incredibly witty for the most part. Some of the dialogue does get cringey as you can only fit so many jokes about penises in a short space without it getting tiring. That’s what she said. I especially found the dialogue for the character of Mr. Wang to be lacking in the humor department as it relied more on shock value and randomness than wit and delivery. When the game isn’t trying so hard to force innuendos, the humor is actually well thought out. Each line of dialogue is voice acted as well and the performances are well done.

Overall, Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Dry Twice is a surprisingly enjoyable and well made point and click adventure game. It’s definitely not safe for work and not suitable for children but below the sleazy exterior is a heart of gold, and below that, many, many, dick jokes.
