Hugo Retro Mania



Copenhagen, Denmark, December 15 2011 – Hugo is back! Today the Danish game publisher KREA Medie announced that Hugo , # 1 TV troll of the 90’s, returns on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Back in the 90´s Hugo casted a powerful spell across the airwaves and captivated audiences everywhere and became a household name in more than 40 countries around Europe and South America, drawing kids, families and friends into a world where television and video games collided through what was state of the art technology. Now Hugo and his mine are back, so prepare for an unforgettable revisit to a magical world.

Hugo Retro Mania is a spellbindingly family arcade game. You still play Hugo Retro Mania using your phone, however the experience has been updated to the touch screen technology. Help Hugo avoid stepping on sticks of dynamite, look out for runaway trolleys and dangerous pitfalls and sudden rock falls. Other obstacles like Sculla, the evil witch, Don Croco, the dangerous crocodile, and an array of disgusting spiders spice up the gameplay mixing old with new. Rank up that highscore by collecting gold, diamonds and rubies and show off to your friends via Facebook and Game Center. Whether you choose the arcade or the classic mode, collect 15 trophies and enjoy this adventurous mine experience.

”For the first time since our acquisition of Hugo, we have developed a project that has been tailored to Hugo – and, not least, to Hugo’s world-wide fame. Most people are surprised when they hear about the degree of Hugo’s renown in e.g. South America, Germany, Spain, France, Russia and Turkey,” says Henrik Kølle, KREA Medie’s managing director. ”We are aware that competition today is fiercer than ever before. Thus, our expectations for Hugo Retro Mania are that it will be the first of many exciting steps towards the recreation of Hugo as a global brand.”
