The universal application offers iDevice owners a port of the 1987 title, Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards, and can be downloaded for just $4.99. Developer Replay Games explains:

Now Larry’s original creator, the world-famous game designer Al Lowe, has teamed up with Sierra Vet-eran Josh Mandel, to bring this amazing, perverted game back to life – updated and expanded in every way imaginable! All we kept from the original game is the plot.Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded, however, isn't a mere port. Instead, a number of brand new features have been added to the popular game, including:
In addition, Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded holds the title of being the first major game released in the App Store following a successful Kickstarter campaign.
