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.

A Curious Observatory

Hello!

After getting to save point three I go round the mansion to get three blue keys so I can get through three blue doors to get to save point four. My problem is - I've only ever managed to get two. Boo! Hiss!

However, in previous parts of the mansion I avoided the scary lightning bit at the top, and I know there is another blue key there. So, do I have to go through the scary lightning bit and get electrocuted 10,000 times to get that blue key? Or is there another hidden one I haven't found?

Answers on a postcard please!

Smiley.

You only have to get the blue key from the Thunderstorm if you're going for the real ending. If you're going for the fake ending you don't need to do that part.

DAM*N!!!

It's already hard enough running up and down to switch the gold/silver block lever, and then getting across the really hard lava/moving block room to get down the ladder at the bottom of the mansion.

I think i'll redo the upstairs section with the lightning. Back to save point one m'thinks!

Poo poo poo.

Ta for the info! I really want to get through those 5 blue doors near save point four.

If you shouldn't know. Your Jack is walking around in the best made mansion ever.
A Curious Observatory
is in my personal opinion better than all other included and custom mansions. But it is also one of the hardest.

I hate zapper beam stuff, because I am oh so bad in those things. But the thunder storm is, although extremely difficult, a marvellous creation! There are two things you need to do to get through. One: try to make a saving before the thunderstorm with as much lives as possible. Two: at the start of that thunderstorm do NOT do what I did when I visited ACO ---> running around like a chicken without a head. What you really nead to do is STOP and watch. And keep watching, because there is a system in it. And only when you know "the secret" of that storm go ahead. Oh! I almost forgot. I have some bad news for you. After taking that blue key, Jack has to return through that same thunderstorm.
Cool

I second that emotion.

"A Curious Observatory" is incredibly well-designed.
And -as I said before- one of only 2 (no, make that 3) mansions I've never mastered completely (yet) !!

As you, Lara, I never dared (or cared Smiley) for that thunderstorm section...... but I always admired its construction from afar.

BTW, Psychotronic, where is he ??  I wish he'd design a new one, soon....

I know where he is: in Alaska! Grin

He is often on line since a week or two and will surely give a reply himself on Lara's post.

Are you sure? what about that random sign and money in the shape of letter to the left of the blue key. Look on the map if confused.

Also, is it worth getting to the other side of save point four? Is there a lot more of the mansion to go?

Ta!

I leave the other answers to Psychotronic, but the answer on this one is without any question: YES. Once you are through all the blue doors, about 30 to 40 % of the rooms is still to come. Among other things I remember a very nice, but difficult 2D-looking area.

Hey, Lara.

I don't think there's any other questions I can help with. Everybody's answers are correct. You do have to go through the lightning storm twice if you want to make it through the blue doors. That sign is more of a joke.

Sorry about the ridiculous difficulty, but the idea I had when I made ACO was to make a mansion that was a challenge to finish the first time, but left you with some extra-hard challenges once you were done. The lightning storm isn't that hard if you've got Mario games in your bloodstream, but it's way harder than most anything in any of the other mansions.

Hint: a mini-zap will show for exactly two seconds right above the spot where the lightning will hit. Spend most of your time watching the sky. Also, lightning can't get you when you're standing under a solid roof.
