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.

New mansion soon: "The Void"
01.02.2008 at 23:43:44
 
Dear fellow mansioneers:

I like to mention that I'm almost finished with a new (1.0.9.) mansion, called
"The Void"
.

It will be a normal-to-hard mansion, without custom graphics and pretty straightforward.....but.... slightly bizarre.

It has a goof "exploring factor"....Jack will have to climb and crawl and jump and slide a bit more than usual to find the Inner Sanctum of The Void.   Cool    Huh

To wet your appetite, I'll be adding a screenshot later....

At the moment, THE VOID is in version 0.9.2 and is already being beta-tested by two members of our forum, while I'm putting in the final design touches (like perfecting backgrounds etc.).

It's safe to say: it's as good as finished and I hope to be able to send it to Freddy for release in 4-6 days.

Stay tuned.   Wink    Cool

Haven't finished yet; that's again a mansion for acrobats! (I just reached the Void if you are curious about it.)

Still I must report a few cheap deaths I encountered on my way (I won't say anything about the numerous expensive ones Wink)

- #14500, if you exit through the top left bit and re-enter you run into a scorpion;

- # 14502, I lost a Jack in the lava cascade and then just thought that it was not possible to cross it. I don't know why it was so, it didn't look intentional.

- # 14698, do we have to sacrifice a Jack? I thought it was bad manners  Undecided

Toybox,

I have tried to avoid "really cheap" deaths in this mansion, though I admit there are a few instances where the player must take good care.
I wouldn't call them cheap, though (especially when compared to what we have seen in some other recent mansions).

But first to room # 14698, where you believe a life has to be sacrificed.
This is not the case.
I knew this disussion would come up, though..... as I used a lttle "gimmick innovation" in this room. (Originally I had planned to put up a BBB in this room explaining how to manage that bit without sacrificing a life, but there wasn't enough room for a BBB).

That's how it goes:
If you walk very slowly, one step at a time, Jack is able to "walk on lava" until he reaches the lever. (I advise to try pulling the lever carefully after every step, so as not to miss the "earliest point" where this is possible.
Once Jack has pulled the lever he must quickly jump back on safe ground (i.e. the nearest brick or platform).
If you're really careful this is possible without losing a life !!
I found that cute and innovative enough to include it here, even if it means some players will lose a life or two until they have figured out how it's working !!

Now to the other rooms:

Room # 14500:  That was an oversight..... but since it only happens when returning (what you're returning for anyway, buddy  Cheesy  Grin), I wouldn't call it a cheap death (as it was unplanned).
I will put the scorpion one step further down in the next update.

Room # 14502: It is perfectly possible to jump "in front of" that lava stream. Normally you shouldn't die there. Maybe you jumped too early, or too low or something ?!?
LATER (edt.): I just took a look.... there was one remaining bit of lava in layer-4, but only below jumping height. Apparently you walked too close to the lava before jumping. I have now removed that bit, so that only layer-5 lava remains.

Thanks for playing THE VOID. I hope you have fun.
