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

Here is the beginning of a mansion I started building many years ago but never released and never finished.

And my first question is here,
brell
.

Room 13700. I have the feeling that my alter ego has to pull the lever left of the $ 100 money bag, but he can't leave the ladders. Do I need to teach him ladder jumps?

A few notes

13499 I like the first room with the wooden moving platforms and black background very much. What brings me to ...

13699 ... where the sign with the largest text (ever Questioning) honoured me for the idea of that starting room. Maybe you intended the current room with 'my' first puzzle?

13700 Meanwhile I know how to handle this room but so far I couldn't execute it. Each time my Jack ran into one of the birds. On it's own that is not important. But any lost live leaded to an other one because of the giants from the upper row. An interesting new variety of a cheap death!
Grin Cool
There is a typo ('nad' should be 'and') on the sign in the lower left corner.

14099 Just to inform you that I got progress till this room. And a serious increase of lives. Roll Eyes It is clear that my Jack needs more training.

No.  Many years ago you sent me an idea for a starting room, which never took off the ground.  I have lost the file but I made this room from memory.

There is a trick to this, which includes a jump to avoid the bird.  Sign typo corrected.

Again there is a trick.  Added a sign to clarify.

Proud about! For the first time I got all 5 yellow keys.
And again, is this really an idea of mine?

As you may notice, I lost 2 lives of which one with the squirrel jump to the vine in the second room. The other one in the dark room by jumping of the vine to ... the right. If you should wonder why, that is - like Alex Diener would say - for the sake of science. Just to know for sure that it is a very wrong idea!

It went well this time, but the fact stays that if it goes wrong one always (?) loses a second live. Important? (Must be nearly impossible to correct this issue without major changes what would be a pity.

Again I ended in room 14099, 'stuck' on the top floor. On the pic you see Jack in the upper left corner. climbing a ladder without any destination.

I assume I am still missing something.

I didn't miss the sign with the remark about my Whisky Bar. So I did download, convert, played and examined this mansion. See over there.
