In the Luigi’s Mansion game, you can explore a haunted house, all while vacuuming ghosts and solving puzzle-filled rooms. Here are some helpful hints to help you get started!



Going for the gold

There are valuable treasures scattered throughout Luigi’s haunted mansion. You can collect in-game coins, bills, and gold bars by using the Poltergust 3000 to vacuum objects, water plants, capture every Boo, and pull in gallery ghosts without letting go. Why do you need in-game cash? You’ll have to wait until the end of the game to find out!



Drawn to darkness

Ghost mice scurry down the haunted house’s hallways. They’re drawn to darkness the way real mice are drawn to cheese. In the dark, they shine gold! If you see a gold mouse, you can quickly suck it up with the Poltergust 3000 for an in-game prize.



Tricky trapdoors

There are trapdoors all over the mansion. When you turn the doorknob, they’ll swing open and flatten you! Luckily, the Poltergust 3000 is built to suction in and shoot out fire, water, and icy mist. Once you collect the Fire Elemental Medal, you can burn trapdoors to dust, so they won’t trick you again.



In the dark

Sometimes empty rooms aren’t empty at all. If you’re roaming a dark room and you’re not sure what to do next, the Poltergust 3000 can help you scare up some action—and some ghosts! You can use suction power to interact with furniture and items, which may trick ghosts into coming out of their hiding place.



Gallery ghosts’ weaknesses

On your adventure through Luigi’s Mansion, you’ll encounter ghosts from Professor E. Gadd’s gallery. Gallery ghosts don’t show their weaknesses very easily, which can make it hard to defeat them. But you can use Professor E. Gadd’s invention, the Game Boy Horror, to search its heart for clues. Sometimes you can learn the best way to surprise ‘em!
