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

The App store

Until december 2010 Mac users had access to what was called "Get Mac OS X software" under the apple menu.  Now we have the App store instead.  I am not sure if this is any better.  I cannot find a way to download free trials in the App store, like I could before the change. Please tell me if I am wrong.

This drove me nuts... I don't use credit cards or other forms of online money exchange, and iTunes Store (which drives the App Store) would not register me without a credit card.

There was an article in MacWorld a couple of months ago (ish) on how to get an app store account without having a CC. Unfortunately that requires creating a new Apple ID.

I actually called Apple and found what worked for me. You do need access to a CC#, but it's temporary.  You do your registration and enter the CC# (I used my sister's.. with her permission), and the registration goes through. Then you edit your profile and remove the CC data... changing the payment option to none.

Then you have your access to the free offerings in the App Store and the iTunes Store.   

Hope this helps, Brell.

Yes, that is the way it worked for me too.

Thanks, but actually, this was not my question.  I asked whether it is now impossible to download free trials of shareware.  I cannot see any option but paying before downloading.  If I am right I will NOT use the App store.

Actually, it is the answer, Brell. If you go through the rigmarole  Mick described you will be able downloading free stuff from the AppStore.

Can't you still use an iTunes gift card instead of a credit card? I've heard the iTunes store is not as secure as the "Apple Store" part of the website (they are completely different entities.)

I was told that iTunes gift cards do not work with the App Store (by Apple).

I sure hope Vern plans on offering MM HD from the Actionsoft site as well as from the App Store. Otherwise, we're beta-testing a game I (and it looks like others, too) will not be able to buy.

You still have to enter your CC data to the iTunes store and marry it to your Apple ID in order for the App Store to accept your login (at least that's so here in Canada).

Not the same entities, yet joined at the hip as far as Apple ID and payment data go.
