Remember Hiúdaí? Or Hugo as he’s known by international audiences. Apparently, he's still around. Not only that, but he's now starring alongside renowned footballer Cristiano Ronaldo in Ronaldo & Hugo: Superstar Skaters.
The game is an endless runner that’s available now on mobile devices. In the game, players flee from the persistent and unwanted attention of Paparazzi Pete on the streets of Las Vegas. As with other endless runner games, there are plenty of obstacles to avoid and coins to collect.
Players will be able to see how they compare to other players too. There are worldwide leaderboards, allowing players to chase fame and glory.
Ronaldo & Hugo: Superstar Skaters is available now for Android devices, as well as iPhone and iPad.
Hugo the Troll first aired on Danish TV in 1990 as part of Eleva2ren, which featured a video game that was played by the audience via telephone. Hugo appeared in licensed shows across the world. TG4 viewers may remember him as Hiúdaí.
Hiúdaí was such a popular character that he won the Oireachtas TV awards' "TV Presenter of the Year" in 2001 and "Personality of the Year" in 2004. And now, 16 years after his first appearance on Irish TV, he gets to appear alongside Cristiano Ronaldo in a video game. That’s quite the career he’s had.
