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.

So now ....back to our topic: Helter Skullter

Yesterday I finally made it: I beat the mansion all the way thru....100% secrets !!

It's really a wonderful mansion, especially now that all the little problems of the earlier versions are ironed out !!

After I beat the "real" one, I played the easy version.....  Ohmygod, was that easy !!    Cheesy Grin  (Should have played that first...!)

But:  I found one small error, I think.
In room 13897, somewhere in the upper right corner (but below that caveat with the shield and the key), Jack used to be able to walk through, coming from the right on the uppermost path....but now it's not possible anymore, as there is a brick blocking his head.

Fortunately, I managed to get through the room on a different path.... but only with a pretty dangerous leap.

So something must have happened there: in all earlier versions, and in the released hard version it IS possible to pass that spot.

A few other, final, notes on the released versions:

The save pedestal is of much help, although I feel it comes a little too early in the game. (But it's probably one of the only spots where there was enough space to put it up, I suppose).

I always found it irritating, and still do, that in order to get all secrets, you have to take ALL moving platforms thru the lava, even if it's not necessary for the completion of the game, as you can get to the lower spots with the levers on a much shorter amd more direct way!  So if you want all secrets, you have to keep going back up and take the platforms throu the lava / ceiling several times.  Here I feel, one secret (maybe for the first platform), would have been enough.

In all versions there is a "mistake" in room 14297, ca. center left, near the left grey door. Once this door has been opened, the skull spider walks to the left (and remains there). This is a bad space for it, as it often results in Jack having to sacrifice a life in order to get to (or back from) the leftmost lever. I'm sure the skullspider was meant to stay in the gap  right of the grey door, so the player could jump over it.

Apart from these last 3 points (sorry Joe) I think it's a wonderful, perfect mansion !!

Help! I'm confused.

I'm working from save point one, and have just gotten 3 red keys and have gone into the dark room where the lamp is on the right. There are lots of spiders and evil invisible ledges that keep killing me, I don't know what to do. Do I need to get back to the beginning of the game to use my 3 red keys? Am I being stupid in this room?

Help would be appreciated.

Smiley.

Hi Lara,

You're on the right track. You're at the bottom of the room with the lantern, and you need to be careful in order to get it. But it is possible. Keep trying, and good luck.

Hey,

I'm not on the bottom left, more the middle left. I think I know how to get to the bottom left...

Anyone got any more explicit help?  Smiley
