Hugo's House of Horrors is an adventure game for DOS. It uses a game engine similar to the early Sierra adventure games. It was designed by David P. Gray, released in 1990, and 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.

Status

I have beaten the game with a full score, without hints. I also hand-wrote a walk-though, full script, and documented various game bugs.

Review

Overall: 3/10

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.
  • There are a couple bugs in the game that can be exploited.

Ugly

  • Nothing really.
