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.

Insectoid near release
30.10.2009 at 04:17:57
 
Well, at the moment, I'm working on the last of two items to get Insectoid ready for Gold Master -- which refers to everything in the software being finished. Gold Master releases are then released to testers, and if no big problems are found, they are then released to the public. I intend to release GM releases to testers today (and may even make it a more public GM release, posting a link here later), and if all goes well, perhaps the game will be released this Monday.

This is of course good news for MM fans, because I will be able to work on the MM Expansion Pack, probably starting a week or two after Insectoid has been released.

Here is the Gold Master, which is the version that will be released to the public, if no major problems are found between now and then:

Windows:
www.actionsoft.com/files/temp/InsectoidInstallerGM1.exe

Mac:
www.actionsoft.com/files/temp/InsectoidMacGM1.zip

Of course, a proper Mac DMG installer will be done later.

Try it out, and post if it works well, or if you have any problems! Note: 1.6 GHz processor or faster recommended.

Vern,

I had other things to do, but now you've posted this. Wink

This reminds me a lot of the original arcade games I grew up playing. Having fun so far.  I'm afraid this is game my husband will also enjoying playing.  Smiley And the graphics are awesome!

Only thing I've found in playing it so far is the typo in "Power Cores Requied" -- it's missing the R.

Good catch, Catwoman. My artist is from the Czech Republic, and English is not his native language, so on occasion a typo slips by. Thanks -- I'll get that fixed!

And on the Striker ship, the help file says it takes 6 power cores but the graphic when you hover over the ship says 5.

And meant to add, it appears it does require 6 since when I attempted to get it with only 5 power cores, it told me I didn't have enough.

Hi Vern,

Amazing graphics!   Smiley 

I only had a short time to check it out & I don't know if it's on my end, but the pointer at the beginning of the game is very slow & hard to navigate.

Pls let me know if it's on my end.  Also, is there anyway to transfer some of the movement options to the mouse rather than key board?  ie:  shooting?

Missy --

Nope, there is no mouse control for Insectoid. And what is the speed of your computer's processor? If it's slow, try clicking on the Options menu and choosing a Fullscreen lower resolution in the Graphics panel -- in the Resolution pop-up menu. Try something like 640x480 or 800x600. That might help with the sluggish cursor.
