Walkthoughs are always a difficult task to master. They generally impart too much information and/or are written in action format. Neither is great for the adventurer who's stuck and only needs a hint. I've tried to provide a walkthrough that doesn't detract from the plot of the game - after all that is the key element in an adventure. Please note that this walkthrough is not my own work.

If you know of an alternative (and better) walkthrough than the one presented here, please let me know.

As Larry: (Part I) ----- The Beginning

The game begins as you stand looking at the beautiful view of Nontoonyt atop Vista Point. Look in the left binoculars for a "nice" view. You might want to also take a look at that wonderful plaque put there for your honor. Read it. STOP looking at the plaque, and go left, and you'll be in the right of the jungle. A pointing finger will show you your way home. Go home, and get dumped by your wife (the bitch!). Then go back to the jungle, and to the lower right where you should find another jungle area. Walk in a little bit and you'll change back to the Larry we all know and love. Go back home, look in the mailbox and get the credit card. Then go back to the first jungle, then LOOK GRANADILLA and be sure to pick up the piece of wood. Then, go right again to the second jungle screen. Then go to the lower right. A pointing finger will point you to your job. Go there, walk into the offices to the left, and have a nice "chat" with your boss - who will fire you!

Walk back to the screen with the fountain in it, and then go down to the beach. A girl should be laying there. Look at her, talk to her, etc. Then give her the card. She'll show you her appreciation. You'll get the knife she buys from the vendor. Leave up to the fountain screen again. Now, sharpen the knife on the steps to the casino (on the right). Then CARVE the WOOD into the "statue." Go to the top left back into that second jungle screen. Go up to the middle of the right hand corner (you have to go around some bushes, and make sure you exit to the right, not the top) and you should be in the screen with CHIP 'N DALE's. Cut the grass, and then weave it into a skirt. Now go to the right hand corner and exit right. Go into the comedy hut and talk to the guys in the back left corner. Then go and sit in the chair in the middle table. Watch the ENTIRE routine, up to the duck impression (you get points!).

How to get the beach girl's $20

Go back down to the fountain screen. Then go right, behind the steps. This should put you in a screen with the cabana. Go to the left cubicle and WEAR SKIRT. Then go back to the beach and you will sell the statue to the girl who is laying there. Now you have $20. Go back to the cabana and change into your leisure suit. Go back to the beach and get her towel. While you are there, pick up that soap on a rope that's on the fountain on the left side of the cabana. Get a drink for points. Then go back to the beach and THROW your TOWEL to get a nice tan. But don't do it for too long, lest you burn!

How to watch the dance show

Now go into the casino (up the steps) and go straight for two screens, then left when you can't go straight anymore. Look in the mirror (for some points) then go left into the theater lounge room. Give your pass (it's in the manual) to the ticketman. He'll ask you some questions about it which can be found in the manual (you *DID* buy this game, didn't you?) Then, tip the man with the $20 to get your front row seat. Enjoy the show. Stand in the lounge until Cherri Tart comes out to use the phone. Talk to her until she tells you she wants land. GIVE her LAND and she tells you to come back when you get the deed.

Where to get the deed

Exit the casino, go left to the second jungle screen and then go to the upper, right hand corner (sort of near where you went to the Chip 'N Dale screen). When you get to that corner, go UP rather than right and you'll find yourself in front of the Law Offices of Dewey, Cheatem, and Howe. Walk on in, and ASK FOR a DIVORCE. You'll be directed to Ms Cheatem who'll talk a while, then send you out. As you leave her office, she'll tell you about the deed. Leave the office, then enter again, and Roger, the clerk will give the deed.

How to get the Fat City card

Go back to Cherri and give her the deed. She'll show her appreciation! Then, when appropriate, DANCE. It exits by itself. Now go back to the Law Office, and pay for the divorce (give the money to Roger). You must be wearing the silly getup for this (You'll know what we mean). Suzi Cheatem will show her appreciation! She'll tell you about the divorce papers, then leave the office, and come back in. Pick up the papers from Roger. LOOK at the papers. Hey! It's a Fat City membership keycard! Neat!

What to do at Fat City

Go to the theater lounge (where you first met Cherri) and open the backstage door. Change back into that dapper suit of yours. Leave the casino going back to the second jungle screen (one screen left of the fountain) and go to the lower left. You should find yourself at the whale. Go into its mouth, and go into the left door with the keycard (OPEN DOOR). Look on the back of the card you found, and you'll see three places which can be found in your game manual/magazine. Remember the page numbers of each of these places (in order) for they are the combination to your locker. Your locker is locker #69 of course, and it can be found by FIND LOCKER until you are "burning hot!" Open the locker with the combination (page #'s of the ads in order). Change into the sweats. *CLOSE THE LOCKER*

Go to the top right door and workout on all four stations. Keep working on every single machine, until you get a message stating that you've done enough. The numbers of repetitions you have to do can go as high as 700, depending on the speed of your computer. Work out on each machine until you get that message, and see the cut-scene.

Now you're a stud! Go back to your locker, unlock it, and remove your sweats. Then close the locker again and go to the top left door. Take a shower (using the soap!) and when you leave, DRY OFF with the towel. Go back to the locker, use the deodorant, and wear your suit. Close the locker. Then leave the locker room and enter the top door with your keycard.

Go right up to Bambi and look at her. Talk to her, then HELP BAMBI with her video problem. She'll show her appreciation! Go to the first jungle screen and go down and left. There should be a tv set and a bench with a newspaper on a table next to the bench. GET NEWSPAPER and READ it. (this is all optional).

How to make Patti happy

Go to the screen with Chip 'n Dales and go into the cave on the left. Get some of the flowers near the edge of the cliff. Make a lei out of them. Go back into the casino, go up as far as you can, and this time, go right instead of left at the picture. Go right past the mirror to the piano lounge where Patti should be. Look at her, talk to her, show your divorce papers, give her the lei, and GO TO ROOM.

How to finish Part I

But she wants some wine! No problem. Go to the comedy hut, and there should be a bottle on the middle table. Get it, go back into the casino, but when you get in, go right instead of forward. Press the button on the elevator, and when inside look at button number then. Then, press it. Pour the wine, and she'll REALLY show her appreciation! Congratulations, you've solved part I!

What you need as Patti

Ok, now you are Patti and you're in pursuit of Larry's pulsating pecs. First thing you need to do is get that wine bottle off of the tray. Then go behind the screen and put on your panties, bra, pantyhose, and dress. Then go to the piano lounge (where you met Larry) and get the magic marker, and the money off of the piano. Now go to the cabana screen and fill the bottle full of water from the fountain (you might want to get a drink yourself too.. You're going on a long journey).

Now go to Chip 'N Dales- Yes! It's finally open! Pay the man at the door, walk inside, sit down in the chair, and enjoy the show. When Dale throws his shirt to your table, THROW PANTIES TO DALE. When Dale comes by after the show, call him and talk to him. Then, LOOK AT DALE. Ask him for help, but he doesn't really give any. Anyway, get up and leave. Go to the right to the comedy hut screen, then to the upper right near the bamboo. You should find yourself near a cliff. Go into the bamboo at the upper left and you'll be in "a twisty turny maze" of bamboo.

The solution for the Bamboo Maze

We graphed out this maze on graph paper, and so if for some reason this doesn't work for you, you can graph it out for yourself. Anyway, here it is: (from the first screen where the path leads straight up): UP, UP, RIGHT, RIGHT, UP, LEFT, UP, RIGHT, UP, UP, UP, LEFT, LEFT, DOWN, LEFT, LEFT, UP, UP, LEFT, UP. Each direction is one screen. When you become delirious, drink the water. The solution can also be found in the manual, by following the first letter of each word in the bouncing fruit song.

How to get off of Cliff #1

When you exit, get as close as you can to the edge of the stream and drink. Then, go up and here's where we found a bug. If you type REMOVE PANTYHOSE, it will say "OK." and give you 15 points. If you then exit the screen it'll put the pantyhose back on and you can go back to the screen and REMOVE PANTYHOSE again for another 15 points. You can do this as many times as you like. This worked on the IBM version- I can't guarantee it'll work for any other. But, no matter. REMOVE PANTYHOSE and get close to that big rock at the top of the screen. Then TIE HOSE TO ROCK and you'll lower yourself down the cliff.

How to get off of Cliff #2

After the hose breaks you should find yourself on a little mini-cliff thing with marijuana growing on it. Take the pot, and MAKE a ROPE out of it. (you might want to save the game and smoke it instead. It's pretty funny.) Then climb up the tree and get the coconuts. Then climb down. Throw the rope at the rock on the other side, and tie your end to the tree. You won't get across without a harness, so RIP your DRESS and then climb the rope to the other side. Carefully make your way across the cliff and exit on the upper left hand side.

Beating the pig

Now carefully make your way up but stop when the feral pig gets in your way. Only one thing to do. REMOVE your BRA and put the coconuts in them. Then SWING BRA and hit the pig with the coconuts. Now it's clear. Go up to the river.

How to cross the river

When you get to the river, swim in a little and look where the water is moving (there's a little wave kinda thing). Type LOOK IN BUSHES and GET the LOG. Then PUSH it out into the water and CLIMB ON the LOG. Save the game now, as you'll be playing a mini-arcade game. Dodge the rocks and stuff as they come by, saving periodically whenever you get some distance. Finally, you should make it out alive.

Beating the Amazons

But oh no! It's those nasty lesbian amazons! They've taken you and put you in a cage with your lover larry. Talk to larry, look around, etc. When satisfied, DRAW a DOOR with your magic marker. Magic eh? Now get out!

Finishing the game

Whoops! You've fallen out of the game! Oh no!!! Now you've done it! You're in the Sierra back lot.. Look at all the stuff (see how much of it you recognize from other Sierra games!?!) Exit to your right. Then go to the right again. When you get to the anti-grav machine, simply shut it off when you are upside-down near the switch. Then go to the right and watch the show!
