    Great now he has invaded my woods. [​IMG]

    Just out of interest, do these actually sell and do people want them? We seemed to have had loads since the GBC days regularly.

    EDIT: Appears he's been around since C64 times, can't recall ever playing any back then.

    for 5 minutes, but you need to be 10 years old (or younger)

    I wish they would stop releasing Hugo games. The last "Agent Hugo" was crap and so is this.

    Turn around...
    That boxart sure is ugly. Is this reallt the finalized version of it?

    The GBA covers from years back were better than this. Hugo is meh, not worth your time unless you're a kid I guess.

    I known Hugo from Amiga 500 and it became a TV show.

    In France it was an interactive TV show in 1992~1993 where each day, for 15 minutes, spectators called the television number and tried to get selected for a live-interactive on-rails game play.
    The selected person were called back to play "Hugo délire" using their phone's buttons, with all the lag it could have [​IMG]
    The user just needed to hit 4 or 6 to select the path he wanted to take, or 2 to jump.

    Here are a website speaking about the TVgame, and few (french) video from the game or from current game show speaking about oldies.

    Hugo looks like some sort of figure drawn by kids.... just plain amateuristic bullshit is what I mean by that....

    Possibly satellites killed this game on tv due to the lag they brought...

    There was also a Hugo TV show on german TV...I even called once or twice, but didn't get through. Was like 7 years old or so back then, and I think the show had a way longer run than 2 years in germany.

    Late comment but it's just to include a clip for anyone else mildly interested.

    Will be getting it for my kid who loves Super Mario Galaxy but finds it way to hard...


    Edit: I remember when this came in the Amiga days - been around since before the C64 days and I don't remember this on C64. Might have been out on C64 after I went to Amiga though... [​IMG]
