Hugo III: Jungle of Doom is the third and final installment in the EGA adventure series. The game features the same engine as in previous Hugo games, along with some new features. These include a turbo button, and a "hints" feature. In this game, Hugo and his girlfriend Penelope crash in a jungle somewhere in South America, where Penelope is soon bitten by a poisonous snake. As Hugo, the player must venture through the jungle, confront a witch doctor and try to find the "pool of life".

The Hugo series later received a fourth installment, this time in the form of a 3D first person shooter, Nitemare-3D.

Hugo III: Jungle of Doom Screenshot The two bottom shots are from the final game, Hugo's Amazon Adventure. After making a crash landing in the Amazon jungle, Penelope gets bitten by a dreaded tree spider. A handy native girl is on hand to tell Hugo that the antidote can be found at the secret "Pool of Life". In the left hand shot Hugo first encounters a rather docile-looking elephant. What he doesn't realize at this point is that the Elephant will turn out to be a crucial element around which the whole game revolves. Finally we see Hugo trying to barter with some friendly natives who have resigned themselves to eating roast hyena for supper yet again. The hut on the right belongs to the local Witch Doctor who turns out to be anything but friendly...
