A later release cover.

Hugo's House of Horrors is an adventure game designed by David P. Gray and released for DOS in 1990. It uses a game engine similar to those used by Sierra adventure games from the 1980s. 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 ended up writing a hand-written walk-though, full script, and documented various game bugs.


I have beaten the game with a full score, without hints.


  • Overall: 3/10
  • Best Version: DOS



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


  • Nothing really.
