  • The Haunted Mansion

    Is it just me or is this game a little trickier lately? The new room layouts can be challenging, for sure. But, it also seems that the different colors of ghosts hang out with each other a little more. I can't tell you how many times a nice fat group of my ghosts have a couple of body guards of the opposite color!

    One thing that may be unique to my computer: When you have more people playing, your little ghost hunter can move a little jerkily. Sometimes he (or she) will stop for a second then jump ahead. It seems that often when an enemy ghost is very close to catching me, my guy will stop and wait to get tagged! Arrrgh!

    I saw something unique tonight in a game. We were in the stretching room and there were a couple of coffins at the center of the lower floor. A purple ghost emerged from the coffin, actually LEPT INTO THE AIR and wound up on the other side of the railing! Whoa!

      Just played the new layout tonight, for sure a little trickier in moving. Have not seen the trick you mentioned will have to be on the look out.

        The leaping ghost may have just been a stray bug, but it was amazing to see!

          It depends on your skill level, of course, but I think they're about the same.

            Leaping ghost sounds similar to the sucking a ghost right before you switch sides of the screen with the passageways trick. lol.

            I agree that mansion is more difficult, but I still prefer playing that to pirates.

              Nope! Mansion gives me more credits than Pirates does - I usually just lose credits when I play Pirates.



              As for the new Mansion set ups, I think that some are more easy and some are a bit more difficult.

                Ship Battle usually winds up making me very little or costing me credits. I'm not that patient to chase someone around and around. I can usually make pretty good scores at Capture The Flag.

                Mansion is a more consistent payer for me, though.

                        Ok I was about to make my own thread about this but I'll post here. Does the mansion game seem a bit bias sometimes? I swear it is bias against me frequently. The person I am playing against always seems to have aextra handicap of ghosts out. The score could be tied at let's say 12 and I have about two ghosts out floating around and the other person has about seven. I swear this is getting frustrating inch:

                          It does seem this way to me sometimes too. It could be that you're the better player and are keeping your ghosts swept up. But I was in a one-on-one game recently where our scores were about even. I counted 12 ghosts for my opponent and 2 ghosts for me.

                          Maybe I'm just paranoid, but it also seems that if I score way higher than my opponent in the first round, they get a big ghost count advantage in the second round.

                            mansion gives me 1/2 the credits that i get in pirates when my computer is BEING GOOD and I'm doing my best =]]
                            mansion kinda annoys me cuz it always freezes every once in a while for no reason, i actually saw a ghost leap across the room once too

                                well i just played mansion today ( havent played it in like months), it is a lot nicer with out the dc bug. Averages out to give you the same amount as pirates. i like it better bc if u keep losing you wont lose credits. 21 credits adds up. Still dont think ill make bat. im trying to just trade for it . a 2,ooo bonous would help. lol

                                  Yea I know exactly what you're talking about. The odds seem to always be against me when I play. I have to like manuever (sp?) around other ghosts to get to mine and my opponent's ghosts are sooo easy to get and are just floating out in the open. Eh whatever I'll play the cards I am dealt..

                                      I have gotten DC a lot on this game right when I'm about to get into the third level, I could have had so many credits by now. I just started playing VMK so I only now this new current version of the game, but I do enjoy it because you don't lose credits.

                                        I don't think it is tricker. If anything it is easier. I never play unless for a quest and in the last quest I broke my high score.
