If not, are there plans for a release of a complete collection of the classical games? They are my favorite and I would like to relive the past by playing them all!

I have Hugo Gold. It has some Hugo's classics and it works on Windows 8. If you want it, I can share with you

I've PM'd you. Great to know that there's an old Hugo game that works on current generation of PCs! :D

New versions for windows 8 are (very) slow to start, need to be downloaded from the store (not default), include publicity, try to connect all the time to your xbox account, …

As far as I know, Windows 8 can run only games like Angry Birds, Hugo Retro Mania, Hugo Troll Race etc, so I don't think games under Windows 8 could be ran in it.

I tried some of my old pc games including Hugo Classic 1 on Win 8 and they worked pretty well and colours were working perfectly too unlike in Win 7. You have to right click the games .exe and run them in Win XP compability mode and it should work.
Win 8 can run programs and games just like Win7 + the apps on the store like retro mania, it is the WinRT operating system which an only run apps downloaded from the store.

Try this tool to play the old games on Windows 7/8: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dxwnd/.
