Game Boy series[edit]

Hugo and Hugo 2[2] were released for the Game Boy by Laguna Video Games in 1995-1996 (or 1994-1997). Both of them are very different from the classic computer games, despite sharing the same title. In the first of these (which is actually a conversion of Mickey Mouse by Kemco),[3] Hugo's wife Hugolina gets kidnapped by the Horned King, ruler of the castle Arbarus, after agreeing to his invitation; and Hugo has to free her and defeat the King. In the second, the goal is not to rescue the troll's family, but rather to help Hugo himself escape, as Scylla keeps him prisoner in her own magic castle.

Both games are side-scrolling platform games. In Hugo, Hugo escapes from a castle by walking upstairs, crawling through pipes and passing through dangerous traps. In Hugo 2, he escapes from a castle by collecting gold bags and avoiding pits.

Agent Hugo series[edit]

Agent Hugo is a series of 3D action games by ITE Media that was a reboot of the Hugo franchise. The original game was released in 2005, only in Europe. It was followed by Agent Hugo: Roborumble in 2006, Agent Hugo - Lemoon Twist in 2007, and Agent Hugo: Hula Holiday in 2008.
