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.

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

Perpetuum Mobile - A few words of guidance
11.11.2008 at 18:49:35
 
Dear friends,

I thought it might be a good idea to give a few words of advice about my latest mansion, Perpetuum Mobilé.

This mansion is somewhat unusual in that the player has to master quite a distance until the first save comes, but after that, as the challenges keep coming, there are more save pedestals than usual, so he can feel free to try some more adventurous moves etc.
There is also more money than usual to be had here, so the player will not lose patience or interest, simply because he runs out of lives too soon, too often.

Also, for a mansion of about average size (close to 100 rooms), there is quite a high number of secrets. So it is wise to look carefully for hidden coins, secret passages and other mischievious ocurrences.......  Cool

While there are several "Mobiles", self-powered moving apparati, throughout the mansion (in fact right from the 1st room on), there are a few bigger ones in the central section.

Not all of them are obvious from the first glance...... one of the hardest might be the big "grey structure" that extends over several floors/levels.
To make it somewhat easier, there is one save right before, and one after it. Both of those can be used whenever the user feels he needs them.

And one final hint about this "grey structure"  (I use this peculiar name for fear of giving too much away):  One or two levers there can be pulled, but they also can be NOT pulled.....depending of whether you think it helpful or not.

If you're there, I guess you'll find out what I mean by that.

Well then, let yourself be (infinitely) moved....by the Perpetuum Mobilé !   Wink

Guten Tag Matthias,

I am enjoying this mansion! Wunderbar! I haven't got to save point one yet, I'm as far as the room with all the yellow keys. Smiley

Hallo!

I'm in 18894 and a little stuck. I will keep trying to jump onto the pink brick. Are there any other options? Smiley

I admit this is a somewhat tricky part in PM.

But once players have found the solution it actually becomes quite straightforward and, ahem, easy.

What I can tell from the above picture is, that players having difficulties there
SPOILER:
 
simply have not yet discovered that there's another moving brick to be activated somewhere !!


Look more carefully everywhere in this room......   Wink    Cool

BTW:
The reason why I couldn't reply sooner is I'm down with a heavy flu and considerably raised temperature.......

(That also applies to enquiries sent in to me via Mail or PM. Though I'll try to answer them later tonight.)
