Description

Hugo's sweetheart Penelope has vanished after visiting a haunted house on a babysitting job. In order to save her, Hugo must explore the area around, within, and beneath the house and solve its mysteries, while surviving its many perils.

Hugo's House of Horrors is a graphic adventure game, controlled with a combination of the arrow keys for movement, and typed commands such as eat steak to interact with the environment. Some challenges are puzzles which must be solved by clever use of items found in the house, while others require quick and careful movement, or test the player's knowledge.

A shareware title, the full game may be distributed freely, but the registered version includes a hint book and an automatic solver which plays the game like a movie.
