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.

It's funny to see these old screenshots and see how much the game has already changed. Here's a new one.

I think something may have been lost in translation here?  Do you mean this kind of game is old?  Galaga was a hit back in the 1980s, which in the video gaming world is almost as old as it gets. Smiley  So I guess I can see that.

But it definitely looks like what Vern is doing with Insectoid looks and feels very modern -- and with Vern's record on MM, I don't think any of doubt that it will be fun, polished, and a great value! 

I just hope that MM community does not rebel because they are so impatient for the MM Expansion!

By the way, Vern, does the Expansion have a clever name/subtitle?  Midnight Mansion: The Thirteenth Hour?  That has a nice ring to it!  Cheesy

Oooh, The Thirteenth Hour... I like it! We were trying to come up with names, but none of them really fit... but that one is really good! I think I just might use it!

HOLY $%^& thats a good name.

But make sure you have that name have a part in the game. It would be a bit okward if you name it that and it says nothing about a thirteenth hour in gameplay. Make something related to it in the final mansion, which I urge, that all the judges of that contest, make a third of that mansion.

Hah, glad you all seem to like the name.  Smiley 

Maybe you should put a grandfather clock graphic into the game, Vern, which has thirteen hours for those who look carefully.  And if you want to get bonus points, make it start ticking from "midnight" to that thirteenth hour in real time with the mansion played time.  And if you're in a room with a clock when the clock strikes 13 -- You hear 13 chimes, of course!  And then the clock breaks.  It'd be cool to encounter these clocks as you progress through a mansion, particularly in save rooms and the final treasure room.

Hey, so I'm not sure that we have too many "space shooter" fans here, but maybe I'm wrong?

I was at a diner the other morning and they had this kind of ultimate Neo-Geo system (well it was not Neo-Geo, but it let you choose from a variety of games) and it included a number of classic arcade shooters.

I got to play "Phoenix",  "Astro Fighter", and a couple others.

They were fun, to an extent.  I found the whole history of arcade starship shooters fascinating.

I also have Galaga at home on a joystick that lets you play Galaga or Mrs. Pac Man, or a few other classic games.  Galaga is the best though.  At least until Insectoid comes out!

Does anyone else have a favorite such game?

When I was a kid I played the heck out of "Battle Squadron" on the Amiga. Great game.
