Hugo II: Whodunit? game description
Hugo II: Whodunit? is the second game in the Hugo adventure game series.
Hugo and his wife, Penelope, arrive to stay at the mansion that belongs to Hugo’s Great Uncle Horace. Penelope falls asleep in the bedroom, while Hugo accidentally finds a bookcase passage and is locked in a secret room. Penelope wakes up, only to witness Uncle Horace’s murder through the keyhole. The player controls Penelope (and later, briefly, Hugo) and must solve the murder.
The game is noted for having several puzzles that can only be solved by restarting (for example, if a matchbox gets wet, the only way to complete the game is to start over, but the only way to know that is to reach the point where you cannot proceed).
Much like its predecessor, Hugo’s House of Horrors, Hugo II: Whodunit? is an adventure game in the style of Sierra’s AGI games. The player moves Penelope with arrow keys and types in commands on the bottom of the screen.
