  1. Yes. I remember laughing my ass of because of that retard that persistently kept calling in with an old rotary dial / pulse dial phone.

  3. Yup, we had the first CD with the original games like skateboard and the one where you jump on the pillars. I played it often and loved it.
    I also really liked the TV show.

  4. I remember watching tv show in 1996. Other kids were calling into the studio and playing different Hugo games by using their dial phones.

    They’ve played like shit though, most of them never reached the goal. I guess it’s because there was one hell of a ping.

    Years later, I’ve played these games myself on XP. Without sound but it still felt great because I always wanted to try it myself.
    Never played anything past originals, but I guess it was kind of discount Crash and Mario Kart.

    • I remember that you couldn’t play with a rotary dial phone, you had to have a push-button (touch-tone) phone

      people still tried

      • maybe so, but quest for the sunstones was more of a blatant copy of the crash games to try to revitalize the Hugo games a bit.
        it used to have It’s own identity with the mini-game+auto runner formula, but around the millennial shift the Hugo games just started throwing shit on the wall to see what sticks.

        I’m a big fan of the Hugo series, being scandinavian myself, but they lost me when they moved to 3D

        • Hugo is really popular in certain regions ofo europe. Yeah maybe not in bongistan, but it wouldn’t be weird at all that a bong dev knew about Hugo, especially because of the "play through phone" novelty.
          Also, what joke? Hugo is a perfectly fine corridor platformer
