Revision as of 23:06, 24 June 2018

A later release cover.

Hugo's House of Horrors is an adventure game designed by David P. Gray and released for DOS in 1990 and later ported to Windows. It uses a game engine similar to those used by Sierra On-Line years earlier. It is the first game in the Hugo series of games. The story is rather typical: the girlfriend of Hugo has been kidnapped and taken into a mansion. The game uses a haunted house theme with various Halloween and horror movie tropes.

I believe my mother got me this game at a shareware game swap. I played the game so much that I not only beat it, but ended up writing a hand-written walk-though, full script, and documented various game bugs.

Status

The game is now freeware. I have beaten the game with a full score, without hints.

Review

  • Overall: 3/10
  • Best Version: DOS

Good

Bad

  • The artwork and sound was very dated (King's Quest V came out the same year!).
  • The story is lacking, and the theme is tired.
  • The game is too short.
  • There are a couple bugs in the game that can be exploited.

Ugly

  • Nothing really.

This is the latest shareware version of Hugo's House of Horrors. You can still buy the game from the author.
