Midnight Mansion... In the vein of games like Dark Castle and Montezuma's Revenge, Midnight Mansion provides classic action gaming with vivid 32-bit graphics, spine-tingling sound effects, and professional quality music.

As Jack Malone, you will explore eight huge mansions, each filled with traps, puzzles, and secrets, as you search for legendary treasure. Ride on conveyor belts, avoid zapper beams, and dodge monsters as you collect keys that give you access to new areas of each mansion. Three difficulty settings allow players of any skill level to enjoy the game.


  • A fun tutorial mansion to get you right more...

What's New

Version 1.2.0b:
  • Fixed conveyor belts so that levers/triggers/switches that affect them, and are marked with "Action is permanent", it really is permanent if you leave the room and come back. Also fixed "Action is default room state" to work correct.
  • Fixed a spot in Cathedral Towers Hard, room 14692, where Jack could jump up a wall under the blue door and get past the door without opening it, more...


Mac OS X 10.2 or later

Um, seems like it could be good, but it offers screen resolutions at the beginning but regardless it only fits in about 20% of my screen, would be a lot beter if it went full screen like it implies it will.

A little bit like manic miner back in the day haha.

Gareth, could you please email me at support@actionsoft.com? I've never heard of resolution switching not working properly, and if it's indeed broken on some setup, I'd like to work on fixing it. Thanks.

Midnight Mansion is a little like going to a Disney movie; its great for kids but a little too cheesy for the rest of us. Still, this is the best that Mac users are going to get until the OS X Dark Castle finally comes out.

I'm a 3+ year MM fan/addict (!) The included mansions are great, and the custom ones are **awesome**! Thanks to creative fans, Jack's Mansions are now even in Space. There are levels for all types of players. My 8 year old grandson started with the Easy levels at 5 and is now on to Normal and Hard, and he's designed several mansions for us to play. The game includes mansion building tools, and the fan website has all kinds of help for MM game designers. If you're looking for a non-shooter game that combines skill and puzzle-solving ability, with a great, involved world-wide (literally) community of players, an ever-expanding number of games, and a caring, involved developer, then try Midnight Mansion. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Nice work! I bought a copy even though I don't know if I'll have time to play it this year. I just wanted to support the dev- this is well written, and seems like the developer is responsive on his forums.

Keep up the great work- looking forward to your next game (perhaps more daylight and happy graphics? I dunno, you decide!)

Although not played it my self, my kids 11, 10, 9 and 6, find it awesome. They bought the license with their own savings after having had the app for two days.
They are very happy with the additional levels and I presume that I will have some problems getting them off their Mac's. ;-)
As parents, my wife and I, appreciate game without violience.

Truly an awesome game. I downloaded it about two weeks ago when I was feeling an urge for some 2d adventure. This thing delivered in spades - and I registered it after a few hours.

The thing is huge. 8 different mansions with 3 different difficulty levels. This effectively translates into 24 mansions, since they're all different. It's not one of those games where the "hard" setting is the same level all over again but with an extra enemy. You can tell that you're in the same mansion and things are sort of where they used to be, but the rooms are all slightly different and slightly tougher than they used to be.

I'm a little less than halfway through. It's hard, but not frustratingly impossible (usually).

A lot of love and care went into this game. I highly recommend it.

This old-school game gets everything right. Good puzzles that are tricky rather than intentionally near-impossible, enough monsters to make it challenging rather than hostile, and a save structure that is very family/multiple house member friendly (Game Developers please study this!)
The graphics are only as scary as an old Scooby Doo cartoon, so with the blood turned off, my 4-year old loves sitting on my lap to 'help' me play it. Even my two-year old helps identify 'key key'!

Well worth the money, obviously crafted with love.

Its a nice simple game, with lots to keep you thinking about where to go and what to do. My 8 year old daughter is addicted to it so I had to register it. Its well worth the money.

Minute Mansion is great. My daughter is thoroughly addicted, and she's only four years old.

She pretends to play the game even when she's not at the computer.

Not only that, but she makes her own levels.
Instant death traps sure, but hey its a start!

Try and Buy this game today!
