Hollywood Monsters in English !!!

Hollywood Monsters was released by Pendulo Studios in 1997 and is one of the funniest adventures ever made. Unfortunately it was never released in English. Last year Pendulo Studios decided to release a similar adventure game called The Next Big Thing. It was supposed to be more of a reimagining of Hollywood Monsters than a sequel or a remake. They kept some themes and some puzzles but the end result was not funny enough for me. So I thought it was the perfect time to translate the original game and let the world decide for itself.

This is an unofficial translation made by fans, well... by me actually with the help of my friend A.P.SlasH. I also think I have to mention that the game is NOT machine translated.

You can download below the patch for the Spanish version released by FX Interactive. The game works perfectly in WinXP and Vista. Keep in mind that's an old game that's running in 640x480 resolution.
Download the patch here.

To install the patch, simply unpack the archive and overwrite the files in the directory which you installed the game. Keep in mind that you will need the original CD in the drive in order to play the game. Also do not overwrite our exe with the no-cd exe.

I also wrote a walkthrough in English which you can download here.


  1. Thank you very much for all your work, it's highly appreciated! I just started playing, this seems to be a really nice and funny game, weird that Pendulo never released an English version themselves. Your patch works very well so far. :)

  2. How did you translate this game?

    Because all the Pendulo Studios use similar file structures, and as far as I know, there's no editor for Pendulo games have been released.

    I would like to translate some Pendulo games into Hungarian, so please answer this question, thanks!

  3. I have the dinamic release and the patch does not seem to work on my Win7 x64 setup. Any advice appreciated!
