The media franchise Hugo includes numerous video games based on or inspired by an interactive television game show of the same title. The series of more than 30 games, including spin-offs, sold over 10 million copies[1] for the Amiga, Commodore 64, PC, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, Game Boy, and mobile game systems. Most of the titles are platform games or minigame sets, but there are also some educational games.

Classic Hugo series[edit]

Game Boy series[edit]

Hugo and Hugo 2[2] were released for the Game Boy by Laguna Video Games. 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 Crazy Castle 2 by Kemco),[3] Hugo's wife Hugolina gets kidnapped by the Horned King, ruler of the castle Arbarus, after agreeing to his invitation (in the original story, Hugolina was to be held in the castle by the witch Scylla herself[4]); 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 (which is actually a conversion of Hugo 2 by Silverrock Productions), he escapes from a castle by collecting gold bags and avoiding pits. Hugo 2 was later released for the Game Boy Color by Infogrames in 1999 under the title Hugo 2½.[3]
