Leisure Suit Larry 6: Shape Up or Slip Out! is the fifth entry in the Leisure Suit Larry series of graphical adventure games published by Sierra On-Line. Originally developed for MS-DOS, an enhanced CD-ROM version was published a year later, it includes revamped graphics in SVGA resolution and voice acting, a first for the series. Both versions use an icon interface similar to other Sierra games of the time, but unlike most Sierra games, the icon bar is visible at all times.

The plot continues the exploits of series protagonist Larry Laffer, who has won a free trip to a luxurious health spa populated by women.

The game was re-released in 2017 on Steam with support for Windows.

Larry Laffer is once again single at the outset of the game, as his girlfriend Passionate Patti has been retconned out of the series, after competing — and losing — on the television dating show Stallions, Larry gets an all-expenses-paid trip to La Costa Lotta, a refined health spa. Due to his status as non-paying guest, he is treated rudely by the staff and given the worst room on the premises, as such, none of the available women in the resort want anything to do with Larry, though it is possible to change their minds with the right gifts.

According to Al Lowe, each game in the Leisure Suit Larry franchise, including Leisure Suit Larry 6, sold over 250,000 copies.[3]

Allen Greenberg of Computer Gaming World in 1994 called it "a very clever game that will easily offend the puritan-minded, just as it might offend the experienced gamer looking for a serious puzzle challenge." He summarized, "For the novice who enjoys a touch of risqué entertainment and good, off-color jokes, LSL6 is a very novel and enjoyable source of Titillation and Amusement."[4]
