Hugo's House of Horrors was the first game in the Hugo series. It is similar to Sierra's AGI games in that it is a graphic adventure game with a parser. The Windows version had optional mouse control. Hugo must enter a mansion, outsmart the residents inside, and save his girlfriend Penelope who was kidnapped and is being held captive in the basement.
The DOS version is shareware, and is available to download legally free of charge. The Windows version is available to purchase in a package with the other two games in the Hugo adventure game trilogy.
