Hugo's House of Horrors is an adventure puzzle game developed and published by David Gray and released for MS-DOS on 1990-01-01 and later ported to Windows. It uses a game engine similar to those used by Sierra On-Line years earlier. It is the first game in the Hugo series of games and followed by by Hugo II: Whodunit? The story is rather typical: the girlfriend of Hugo has been kidnapped and taken into a mansion. The game uses a haunted house theme with various Halloween and horror movie tropes.

David Gray began programming Hugo's House of Horrors in 1989 writing in Quick C, and drawing graphics in PC Paintbrush.

I believe my mother got me this game at a shareware game swap. I played the game so much that I not only beat it, but ended up writing a hand-written walk-though, full script, and documented various game bugs.

I do not own the game, but I have beaten the game with a full score, without hints.

This is all of the shareware versions of the Hugo games I could find including Hugo's House of Horrors for DOS and Windows. You can still buy the game from the author.
