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/brell was updated on 19. Nov 2023 to add a fourth section. Available here

Your favourite custom mansions

I am rather curious how people would vote for top ten custom mansions because, as has been stated, players are as different as the mansions and thus prefer one or more types above others.  Not trying to be offensive in any way, here is my top ten list (my own mansions being excluded, of course) based on things like how often I play them, general layout, difficulty (I prefer not too difficult), puzzles (finding secrets etc.) and more:

Catacombs
Doldrum Dungeon
House of Wonders
Midnight Mazes and Monsters
Matt and Joe's Intro
Matt and Joes Place
Mummy's Revenge
Temple of Tombs
The Mall
The Money Pit

I never said I disliked mansions which are not on my top ten.

Unsorted....and excluding my own mansions....here are my Top 10 (but as I write this off the top of my heead, I might have forgotten one or more that i really like, but haven't played in a long time....).

A Curioius Observatory
Foggy Forest Mansion
House Of Wonders
Catacombs
The Mall
Dr. Tronic's Zoo
Mummy's Revenge
TOTOMBS
The Money Pit
Scorpion Mansion  or The Great Escape   (can't remember which I liked better)

But anyway I'm not sure if that really tells us much..... lists like that.... ?!

EDIT (Feb 9, 2007):
Since posting this list above, I've looked into my custom mansions list again, and have found I should add the following 2, as I loved them very much, when they came out:

Dragon Trap Hard
Matt + Joe's Place

In no particular order:

Midnight Mazes and Monsters
A Curious Observatory
Catacombs
Matt and Joe's Place
Mummy's Revenge
Temple of the Moon (except for those massive clouds of brown birds near the end that keep killing Jack)
The Great Escape
The Money Pit
Temple of Tombs
Echo Keep

These are all older mansions. I like a lot of the newer ones, but they haven't been around long enough to determine if I'll play them over and over. Some of them I haven't even been able to get through yet!   Angry

Yes, I loved Dr. Tronic's Zoo as well. One of my favorites was possibly a curious observatory, which I could never beat. Embarrassed
I love the Idea of volcanis... eventually I just died but that mansion is cool too. My friends like the lost jungle, but like you guys say, there's too many drops.

I like ALL "finished" custom mansions, since I know how many hours of work went into them and although they all have better and minor points. So I am not making a top 10, but only want to make a special note about 2 of them.

My absolute favourite custom mansion is Psychotronic's
A Curious Observatory
. I told that so many times before, so that it isn't news at all. Its master puzzle, the thunderstorm (while I hate zapper beam stuff), the 2D-area etc. bring this mansion to an extremely high quality level. The only minor point is probably that it is not accessable for players who doesn't have the skill for hard-to-very hard mansions.

And then there is also Alexander's
The Dalton Brothers
. Because I am a "freak" of MM-novelties, I must confess that this mansion was really stunning in that way. It made all my own novelties fade to gray!

I don't have a top ten (yet)... but just now I'm playing Palace of Gore and I LOVE Kiss it!  Just the right amount of puzzles, baddies and rewards and you NEVER Shocked know what's in the next room, so it keeps you guessing - FANTASTIC! Grin

Seems like little Jack was lost in some huge mansion, but he's finally found a way out... thanks to Vern, Freddy & Brell!

You liked Doldrum Dungeon but not Korvak's Keep?!? Shocked

I think I did a much better job with the third one than the second.
