On the way home from vacationing in Hugo II, Hugo and Penelope crash their plane in the jungles of South America. After Penelope is bitten by a spider, Hugo must find the antidote to save her. Hugo III is the most ambitious game of the series. One new addition is that Hugo gets smaller as he moves away from the "camera", though there's an awkward flash when he changes size. Another new feature is that, if you get really stuck (which happens a lot in Hugo games), the game will offer to give you a hint! Hugo III rounds out the genres in the trilogy, which began with a horror story, followed by a murder mystery, and ends with an adventure.
