Hugo 3: Jungle of Doom was released for MS-DOS and Windows in 1992. In this game Hugo and Penelope crash land in a jungle and Penelope gets bitten by a spider. Hugo must go in search of a cure before she dies.

Hugo 3 is shorter then the last game but it’s incredibly difficult to beat without a walkthrough. It does come with a hint system that’s designed to make the game a little bit easier if you get stuck. As in the previous two games you’ll use the arrow keys to move around and a text parser to input commands.
