Description of Softporn Adventure

A true precursor to Sierra's blockbuster hit Leisure Suit Larry series, Softporn Adventure was designed in 1983 for the Apple II computer by Chuck Benson, a database programmer who wrote the game as a "test" of computer databases. Ken Williams saw the game, liked it, bought rights to the game from Benson and gave the game to Al Lowe, who was then an independent programmer. The rest, as they say, is history ;)

For obvious reasons, the plot of Softporn Adventure is nearly identical to the first Leisure Suit Larry game. While mildly entertaining because of its theme (probably one of the first adult games ever made), the game suffers from a very limiting VERB-NOUN parser that doesn't understand many obvious synonyms. The limited parser seems especially bad when considering that Infocom was using a much more powerful parser for their games during the same period. Recommended for the novelty value only - and of course for all Larry fans ;)

It was released in 1981 on Apple II, and in 1991 on DOS

I thought that I'd point out that the HOTUD review contradicts Wikipedia on the dates, as Wikipedia lists the release date as 1981. Also, Wikipedia lists "On-Line Systems" as existing from 1979-1982. That, I understand, was the first name for "Sierra On-Line". So that's one more reason to suspect that it was released in 1981.

After trying again, I realized that the reason it was so difficult for me, was because I am used to parsers that understand English better that my two and a half year old nephew does. I pretended I was talking to him, and found it much easier. I just hope my brother doesn't find out, or he'd kill me rotfol.

This game is soooo hard!!! I am bald from pulling my hair out. The graphics and humor Al Lowe added were only minor improvements he made. The major improvement was making it possible to win Leisure Suit Larry without a walk-through, or a PHD.
