User rating: 0.0 (0 votes)

In Hugo's first adventure, he must rescue his girlfriend Penelope from a house she disappeared into while babysitting. The game is a graphic adventure, but commands must be typed. The arrow keys control Hugo's movement, while simple commands like "look at pumpkin" or "talk to butler" control the action. Points are awarded for completing objectives, and the game can be saved before difficult stages where Hugo can be killed, though a bug in v1.8 prevents games from being restored. The game isn't very long, but there is a series of questions that would be quite difficult to complete without the hint manual that came with the registered version. Still a fun little diversion, suitable for children of most ages. The registered version allows recording and playback of Hugo's actions.
