The Haunting of Magnolia Manor

JeremyNo one respects the rights of ghosts these days. Whether it's a bunch of drunken teenagers with a Ouija board or wannabe "ghost hunters" from no-name basic cable channels, no self-respecting ghost can find a moment's peace. Well, for the undead and their sympathisers, the moment of catharsis has finally come, with Kelly Weaver and Jimmy Hinson's action-packed little real-time strategy game, The Haunting of Magnolia Manor.

The Haunting of Magnolia ManorNew occupants have taken up your old haunt and you'll need to use everything in your ghostly arsenal to repel these "meat bags" from your manor. Just click a room to place your initial phantom and his ghoul friends and then hit "GO" when you're ready to do some serious scarin'. You'll only have a limited time to frighten all the inhabitants, so you'll want to memorize all the hotkeys (numbers 1-6) to activate your different abilities, like scare, possess and ectoplasm (yum!), and to summon up your best ghoulish friends, who, unlike what you might have been lead to believe by reading a certain Harvey Comics hero, are most definitely not friendly.

The Haunting of Magnolia Manor has a simple premise, but does what all the best realtime strategy games do: provide a fast-paced, action-packed, knucklebiting good time...at least, if you still have knuckles to bite.

I must be missing something on level 26, because I can't even get past the planning phase. I have 3 seal doors, and the game says I have to place all of them before the level can start. But I don't see any valid combination of doors that I can block using all 3.

I'm having the same problem with level 26. No combinations work without sealing off a room.

Me too. 26 is a no go. Too bad cause I was enjoying it up to that part.

same here :( fatal game flaw

Well that's pretty frustrating. I wonder if there is any way to contact the maker's of the game about it. It was an enjoyable game up to that point and I'd like to have finished it.

Did some internet snooping and apparently Kelly Weaver was made aware of the bug as far back as last October, but seems to have no intention of fixing it. Ah well.
