1.                                Introduction

===============================================================================


Hugo's House of Horrors is the first in a trilogy of fun graphic adventures on
the PC featuring Hugo. Made in the style of old Sierra games, the arrow keys
are used to control the character and commands are typed to interact with the
environments. Hugo's girlfriend, Penelope, has been captured by the strange
inhabitants of the house in this first game, and it's up to Hugo to make his
way through the mysterious locations within the house in an attempt to find
her. He has to make his way through a ferocious dog's lair, a bat cave and even
avoid a mummy in one of the most difficult sequences of the game. Overall this
is a good start to a series, and is highly recommended for adventure game fans.
