In the sequel to Hugo's House of Horrors, Hugo and Penelope take a vacation in France, but Hugo disappears, and his great uncle Horace is murdered! This time you play as Penelope, trying to rescue Hugo and solve the murder. The graphics and gameplay are similar to the first Hugo game, but the game is much longer than the original. You'll need to make a map to complete one stage, but mapping is part of the fun. Some areas may be too difficult for children, such as the venus flytraps and crossing the bridge without getting the matches wet. Some commands have to be phrased very specifically, often in a more verbose way than necessary, so you can have the right idea, and phrase a sensible and obvious command, but fail and think that you're on the wrong track. Challenge and frustration aside, the game is appropriate for gamers of all ages.
