If you are already a certain age, the video game may be familiar to you Hugo, which was one of the first appeared on television networks and that it went through the programs of several countries. In our case it debuted early 90’s in the Telecupón program that Carmen Sevilla presented at that time.
The title in question used a phone as a remote control
The user mnovalbos has published a video through his Twitter account in which he can be seen using a rotary phone to move Hugo through the levels, just as it happened originally, as you can see below.
After all these years, I can finally play Hugo with his original controller. Only Carmen Sevilla is missing pic.twitter.com/O1YUbbYpkn

In another message Explain that to get it you have connected the phone to an arduino with which it translates the dialing into keystrokes, although it ensures that this was a very simple task compared to configuring the game to work on the computer.
The truth is that this leaves us wanting to see a more complete video and wondering if one day a television network will be encouraged to run a contest of this type again.
