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

Thanks aquaMat.  Actually, no offense taken  Smiley

But I wanted to clarify these points, expecially after Wingy's comment.

Ouch, finished aRfRG at last! Got 88% of secrets, and I forgot how many dollars (I'll need to replay the Red section anyway because there is still a very obvious closed door there  Huh).

You little Smiley you. Was the Purple section more difficult than the others or is it just because that's the one I started with?

(Except for the first zapper beam room - the first jump up actually.)

Smiley

Also, in Room 13901: once you take all the money, how are you supposed to get away from above the doors? I tried taking the half-ladder but Jack just fell down to the ground and died  Sad

Which door is that?

Hopefully they are all alike but I expect that the purple one feels harder if you start there with only 6 lives and only getting silver coins.

I guess you mean the first zapper room in the blue section?

Hehe.  Yes this is a tricky one - until you spot how EASY it actually is  Grin

I can't remember the room number. It is a red door on the bottom left of a room, maybe the one you pop in after the fake ladder puzzle.

The disadvantage of being an order freak: you want to start with the silver coins and go up all the way to backpacks instead of doing it the sensible, I mean the other way round  Roll Eyes

Indeed, that's the one. I think the first ladder jump (avoiding the lowest horizontal beam) is a killer. First time I played I lost all my Jacks there, next time I passed unscathed on the first try! You certainly learn to become very cautious in this mansion  Cheesy

I knew there was a trick. Good thing I had saved just before  Wink

Easy ?????    Shocked   Shocked   Roll Eyes

This mother... is the hardest mansion of all times, including many nasty surprise deaths, unavoidable falls and creature attacks.

I have yet to master a single of the available paths.....   Cool

In my experience, the gold coins path was a bit easier. Then again, I had actually finished the purple one before Roll Eyes

Oh really ??

I had the feeling the purple path was indeed the hardest ?!
There I always died in the first couple of rooms.   Cool

BTW, in my humble opinion, I really feel there are a few too many "sudden (cheap?) deaths" in ARFRG for an "officially released" mansion. When I consider what I always had to remove in my mansions before release.....  I wouldn't have gotten away with some of those things in there.....   Undecided   Smiley

I mention that now, 'cause I just played the purple path again (or: tried to) and felt that it's especially "mean" there (just take the hi-speed platform jump in the second room of the purple path as an example).

I always felt I was quite a skilled player..... but there I certainly begin to doubt my abilities...   Cheesy Wink

OK.  Since you've finished the red section without opening that door you know it is not needed to get through but you miss a bit of treasure.
