Hugo is the adventurous protagonist in the Hugo Trilogy. One is able to direct him with the mouse or keyboard; he can walk and, when located in an appropriate area, a player is able to type in an action for Hugo to do or a phrase for Hugo to say.
He is a middle-aged man who is wholly enamored with his red-headed girlfriend, Penelope, who has a bad habit of becoming his "maiden-in-distress." However, in Hugo's Mystery Adventure, Penelope must set out to find her missing Hugo.
Take Hugo through an animated "classic" style adventure, solving puzzles, finding hidden objects and outwitting the [numerous antagonists in each of the Hugo games]. Use the intuitive point & click mouse interface to move around and get Hugo to do your bidding.
