It’s a horror-themed first-person shooter and the sequel to the Hugo III: Jungle of Doom adventure game.
Hugo’s girlfriend, Penelope, is kidnapped by nefarious Dr. Hamerstein who intends to conduct terrifying experiments on her.
Hugo must explore the doctor’s villa, confront the villain himself and save his own half.
The gameplay mainly follows the Wolfenstein 3D genre.
However, its gameplay is somewhat slow and includes resolution of heavier puzzles.
There are four weapons in the game: plasma gun, magic wand, pistol and automatic repeating plasma gun.
The levels are labyrinthine and include secret areas.
The first episode was released as shareware followed by two commercial episodes, for a total of thirty levels.
