Favorite non-Lucas point-and-click adventure games

Could be it, although I seem to recall there were 3 aliens. Then again, it’s a review from a magazine from 20 years ago, so I probably misremember some things.

Hey, I’m glad nobody replied with Toejam & Earl. :wink:

Loved Discworld the blend of zany puzzles and humour was spot on!

Is there a good (and possibly not super-ancient) Larry game?

The original LSL1 (1987) and LSL7 (1996) are available on GOG.com, and there’s also the remake from Kickstarter available of LSL 1 (Lesuire Suit Larry: Reloaded). I’ve played the LSL1 (back in the day) and it’s reboot (back when it was initially released in 2013). I prefer the original, but the reboot is actually well done as well. I don’t remember playing LSL7 (Love for Sail!), but the reviews on GOG look good.


@LowLevel: If it shouldn’t be super-ancient, I would recommend the remake of the first one.
The original LSL is the one I know best. Though, I also tried the sequels. LSL 7 might have been the best sequel, but, if you haven’t played any LSL yet, I would recommend the original one. To me, it’s just the one and only Larry game.

The Sierra remakes that replace the text parser with a point and click interface and add a hilarious narrator, are actually really good.

I played the first three King´s Quest games. The first one was okay (the infinity of the map is a bit confusing) the 3rd one I hardly played because I didn´t like that timer system with the wizard at the beginning, but King´s Quest 2, I´m sorry to say is an amazing game that I thoroughly enjoyed!

If I play LSL 7, will I find a lot of inexplicable references to the previous games of the series that I have never played? Is it enjoyable even without having played the previous games?

Make sure you check the “disable annoying in-jokes” option.
Every game has one of those, right? Right??

I’m not sure, because it’s been a while since I played it, but I am pretty sure that there were not many in-jokes in LSL 7.

I loved Larry 2, which I played 20+ years ago on the Amiga. But could not finish it. I suspect it is one of the games where you get stuck if you did not do something much earlier (and which you had no reason to do). But I can’t be sure. Basically, after the boat, I arrived on an island and soon got stuck.

LSL7 deserves an opportunity. For me it is one of my favorite games. A very funny game. :smiley:

LSL7 has a nice graphics and very interesting UI. But due to the lack of an objective I lost interest. I will play it more.

@LowLevel: I can recommend LSL7, it’s one of the best parts of the series (but as all Sierra games not a very good adventure game). If you play it, you should keep in mind, that you can type in commands. Don’t forget that!

Lack of an objective?

Isn’t the whole Larry series aimed at THE objective?

No, in Larry 2 there was this… uhm… Goldfinger person… and then there were these girls … and … uhm… yes.

Yes, it is one of the better fan adventures, but the story was weird IMHO.
