Actionsoft's latest game, Midnight Mansion 2: The Haunted Hills,  includes 28 mansions. The 8 Built-in mansions have 3 difficulties along with 4 extra custom mansions. We don't have that many other custom MM2 mansions yet. Design your own custom mansion! Info below.  You can find out more about the game here.

The original Midnight Mansion game contains over 150 mansions. The 8 included mansions which have 3 difficulty levels each, and about 115 approved custom mansions which you can download here and also several freely uploaded mansions. To know the difference between these three types of mansions, click here.

Are you a creative person and thinking of designing a mansion yourself? Or want to know about how to upload it? Click here and we'll show you! You'll find guidelines for betatesters here.

News:
Midnight Mansion 2: The Haunted Hills version 1.0.2b has been released. This fixes a bug in Jasperlone Mountains Hard. Simply re-download the game, bring over your custom mansions folder from the old version and play on. All your saves and high scores will not be changed.

Midnight Mansion HD (MM1) is now available at the Mac App Store and at the Actionsoft website. A Windows version is now available.

Here is a list of downloadable MM1 HD ready custom mansions, which also work in the Windows version of the game.

The MM2 custom mansion Hanging Gardens of Babylon by Freddy/SandyBean/Josephine was updated on 16 Feb 2014 to add a third section.

Noo! Jack is stuck in The Mall!

And all the teenagers are driving him mad...

Well, first, let me say that I really like this mansion. The launcher idea is hilarious and ingenious at the same time. However, I noticed a few bugs that the author may appreciate hearing about.

First, the Jack-stuck: In the red path, there is a series of rooms with lots of platforms and doors and silver coins, where you  must collect a lot of blue and gold keys to be able to exit (sorry I don't pay attention to mansion numbers; I should start using Debug mode for this). Walk all the way to the end, then back across the bottom, hitting all of the switches as you go to close all the doors. Once you reach the beginning, start moving across again on the middle level, jumping up to the gold switch that opens all the doors each time. If you exit one room by way of a middle platform, you will find your way blocked by a door. If you go back, you will realize that you used a gold switch to open the doors, so that one's closed too! Jack is stuck.

In the first (green) path, there's a room with two gold doors and two green doors. The only thing to be gained by opening these doors is two gold keys, which you would expend opening the doors. So, I ignored them, and carried the two green keys with me the rest of the way through the level. I could have bypassed the next zone altogether, but I wanted to play the whole mansion. Smiley

Also, the launcher killed me twice (on the second platform up, and also on the red path). This lets you skip the zone you were starting, because it plops you back up top with a key of the appropriate color. Also, if you open the door at the top and decide that you want to play the zone anyway, you'll be stuck without a key once you get to the bottom.

Other then that, awesome job. Smiley

That reminds me... my little brother, whos about 4 years old, loves MM and plays it whenever he goes on the computer. He's really good at it, on easy mode that it. He can get through about half a normal mansion without a game over. He's beaten the game on easy mode 3 times!  Grin Anyways... He went into the editor and made lava under the polls just after you get the key. Then he said, "Look! I beat this mansion in five minutes!"  Grin

Then I redownloaded The Mall and said to him, "Try to beat it in less than five minutes now!"  Grin

HMMMmmmmmm.... I tried this but there is a way around it which is to return to the first room across the bottom. I'll look at it a little more.

Redundant (unneccessary) doors & keys removed

You no longer get the keys on the way down because you don't need them anymore.


Thanks for the feedback. I'll repost when I look at the red path a little more.

How do you even get to the bottom if you're trapped inside the two gray doors?

AH, didn't read that into what you said (stuck between the doors). Yes that would be a problem. Tonight's a late night for me because I'm finishing up Dominator for my beta testers and then I'll see if I can duplicate what you're saying. Good catch on the other issues and I've made the changes to fix them.

Thanks again,

Joe B

ps Let me know if you're interested in testing Dominator. You're the first one to find anything in any M&J mansions in quite a while.

Well, you know, I have this uncanny ability to get Jack stuck. Happens quite a bit... Grin

Sure, I'll test Dominator; this weekend is three days long for me. Umm...I'll PM you my email address, since the one I used to register is just a dummy for spam.

So the mansions going to becoming out to testers this weekend? Oh I can't wait!  Smiley I'm constantly checking my mail! My e-mail is used for just MM. My MSN one is for spam and chatting.  Wink
