Sierra decided to return to the adult-oriented themes, almost absent from the previous game, so like the first episode of the series, it also featured an age verification system; a series of questions to which the authors reasoned only adults would know the answer. The multiple-choice questions did little to deter adolescents with some patience and a notepad. (The verification system could be skipped by pressing Ctrl-Alt-X.)
Unlike the first game, wrong answers didn't forbid the player to play, but rather featured more 'light' themes and expressions depending on the score. The lowest level was Mother Goose while the highest was Totally Raunchiest. The levels differed in some 'dirtiness' details, like whether or not Tawni had a bra on the beach, the action of the sexual scenes, some vocabulary like the default expletive, etc.
The game had some customization options that never appeared in any other Sierra adventure. For example the player could change the colour of the message boxes and the fonts. Also, the player could edit into the dialogues his favourite expletive which is repeated throughout the game; something also possible in the second game of the series. The default varies according to the dirtiness level of the game.
Leisure Suit Larry 3 is the first Sierra game in which part of the plot is to switch a character and see the story from another point of view.
