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.

Ta for all the help but I think I'll have to get up the courage to do more ACO. Too much mental anguish!!!

Gonna do some other mansions first...

My heart was racing as I FINALLY got through the lightning storm, and back, in one piece only to get squished by the freaking eyeball coming down the ladder! Cry Could I possibly do it again? Well, yes. I was able to go through hell and back and get down to the blue doors in one piece only to realize I needed one more blue key to save! ARGH!!!  Undecided

My frustration is this..... I don't know the code for the top of the ladder when you pass through the first 3 blue doors. So much to my dismay, it looks like it's back to the lightning hell for me. Shocked

Someone... anyone..... help me stop the madness!!! Wink

A vague hint. It is very common that levers STOP zapper beams. But in ACO, there are a few places where levers START zapper beams. That must have a reason!

WOOHOO!!!!

I did it!!!!

HINT: Go as far as you can before you save and make sure you have lots of lives before attempting the lightning storm. Also, be stingy with your keys. You'll be hating life if you get stuck without one!!

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.


Although I've only played the beginning area, I would have to completely agree here -- I LOVE the beginning of this mansion. It's truly fantastic. And yes, better than all the mansions that came with the game.

That's why I'm hiring Psychotronic to design a mansion or two for the expansion pack. This is being done separately from the level design contest, so if brilliance strikes again (I hope so!), you all still have a chance of winning that $300 prize for the best mansion. Smiley Or should we let Psychotronic enter the contest, in addition to designing other mansions on the side? (Although then he couldn't be a judge...)

I'm not shure whether that would be fair... as much as I love Psychotronic's mansions... if he is already getting that "extra" exposure anyway....and on top of that probably would win the contest....well, I don't know...!!

I have no problem at all. Psychotronic is by far the best PLAYER in the world. And it is only MY personal opinion that ACO is the best mansion made ever. But ... only for very experienced players. Believe me!! How many of you have ever seen the 2D-area?? And did beat it? Is there anyone out there that got 100 % secrets?

Psychotronic will have to be very good to beat someone like frost or Toybox in a competion. Euh ... in a matter of fact, Toybox-with-his-oh-so-bad-memory-although-being-a-mathsman, would be the best choise to be in the jury. Beside new-ryos, he is THE JS-specialist!

But, that is ... Vern's problem. The best designers are probably the best judges. Putting them in the jury will say, losing splendid mansions.

Why should being a maths-man prevent me from having a bad memory? Tongue Actually, I remember weird and useless facts (like Freddy first signing in as Niccolo Machiavelli in the second forum) and not more relevant stuff (where on Earth did I put these %$# car keys now?).

Maybe the jury should have some non-building players? (And I don't think that the amount of JS's would be of great influence on my choice if I had to judge mansions. Then again, metron to ariston.)

Appendix: just noticed this is in the ACO thread. To remain within topic: I find it indeed the most beautiful mansion, both by its looks and puzzles. I just wish it was slightly more accessible  Wink (Let's not complain: after all there is an easy way out.)

Aha! Like I did remember your real name from the first boards. First boards? Feels like the Stone-Ages.
