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.

MM games for Mac Sierra and above.
22.02.2018 at 01:02:43
 
Help! I've played MM on my G4 and 5 no problem. But I'm on Sierra (10.12) and High Sierra mini macs now and I cannot get my Midnight Mansion/Midnight Mansion HD/Midnight Mansion-Haunted Hills games to play. They display a circle with a diagonal line through it.  What do I need to do to get the "intel" versions of Midnight Mansion/s to work?  Thanks in advance....Cry

Hi Donna- offhand I think MM will only run with an emulator. This has been a topic of conversation before, maybe someone who has done it can chime in.

If not, when I have time in the next week or two I'll see if I can get MM running in Sierra. The forum isn't as busy as it used to be, but keep checking back  Smiley

Hi Donna,

Someone posted a link several weeks ago in one of the other forums about this issue. You can read up on it. Note that the article is over a year old, and there are newer versions of the suggested software:

http://www.techradar.com/how-to/how-to-run-old-software-and-games-on-your-mac

I tried Parallels and it didn't work for me (El Capitan, I couldn't get sound to work), but I'm going to try Fusion soon.

You can get Snow Leopard Server DVDs on ebay for $25USD. Also- Fusion is on sale right now for $64. Or you could pick up an older Mac Mini super cheap (seriously, there's one with a starting bid of $6   Shocked  )

Yes, Midnight Mansion HD is the version you want. The red circle with a line through it means that the game is for PPC chips, and needs Rosetta to emulate it. Rosetta was removed from OS X many releases ago --OS X 10.6 was the last version that came with it.

Midnight Mansion HD was a total rewrite of the game that runs fine on modern computers. Or at least it used to... I haven't tested it on the latest OSes.

Midnight Mansion 2: The Haunted Hills was never upgraded to HD, so the only way to run it is with emulators or by rebooting with OS X 10.6 or earlier, as others have pointed out.

Some day I hope to upgrade it to HD too...
