WALKTHROUGH! WALKTHROUGH! WALKTHROUGH! WALKTHROUGH!
Its-a-me…er...Luigi! After being lucky enough to get my hands on an imported Gamecube, and a copy of Luigi’s Mansion, the worlds first hoover ‘em up, I decided to post a walkthrough to help anyone else out there with an imported version.
NOTE! THIS SPOILER IS FOR THE IMPORT VERSION AS CHANGES ARE BEING MADE TO THE EUROPEAN VERSION.
= = = = = = = = = = = = =
PART 1 - FIRST FLOOR
= = = = = = = = = = = = =
After watching the cutscene (and drooling at the graphics, no doubt) complete the little training exercise. Getting used to two analogue sticks is a little tricky at first but it soon becomes second nature. Anyway. After saving (with the ever helpful Toad), head upstairs and go through the creaky door. Blow out the candles on the dresser with your hoover (an immensely enjoyable experience, though watch it doesn’t overheat) and suck up the ghosts as they appear. As the light goes on (which is an indication that all ghosts have been caught) grab the key and move on to the next room.
Get rid of the ghosts in the next room and the room after that. Look out for some that are hiding in the cupboards. When the room lights up use the hoover to grab the key off the top ledge. Go outside, and meet Toad again to save (frequent saving is advisable). After saving go back upstairs to the top floor of the foyer and once there turn and use the new key on the left door. Once in the corridor, walk until you see the first door on the right. Go in it.
Once in there, first get rid off screen clutter by vacuuming up all the flying books. When you see Neville in the rocking chair, turn away and when he starts yawning, swivel round and suck him in. Congratulations, you have caught PORTRAIT GHOST 1. Easy, eh? Collect his key and leave the room, going right to the end of the corridor and through the end door.
For PORTRAIT GHOST 2, suck open the curtains and, when Lydia gasps, hoover her up. Grab the key, leave the room, and go through the door in the South. Once in, use the hoover to create a rocking motion with the rocking (duh!) horse for PORTRAIT GHOST 3. Now hoover up the little ball nearby and chuck it at the baby Chauncy for the first boss.
BOSS – CHAUNCY: This isn’t too difficult; it just eases you in gently. Avoid the toys he throws at you and his bouncing attack by dodging from left to right. Grab one of his balls and chuck it at him to render him temporarily hooverable. You’ve done it, Congratulations!
= = = = = = = = = = = = =
PART 2 - TO THE BOOS
= = = = = = = = = = = = =
Go back to the foyer and with the new key open the vine-covered door in the main foyer. Walk through (geddit?) it, head right, and take a left turn and then left again at the T-junction, which should hopefully lead you to an unlocked door at the end. Once in the bathroom, destroy the two ghosts (shake them off by wiggling the analogue stick if they grab you) and grab the key that appears on the shelf afterwards. Go back outside and go in the right-hand door in the north-south corridor. Still with me? Good.
Once I the next room, suck up the spinning Shy Guys who make a welcome return, then shine the light and suck them again. Look for the dancing couple. Move closer to them and wait for them to finish before hovering them up for PORTRAIT GHOST 4. Grab the key left in the chest and head through the next door. Take out the waiting ghosts and make your way over to the front of the wall opposite the mirror and tap A. To your wondrous amazement you’ll discover it’s a fake wall! Suck the hiding poster up by tapping the button behind.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
PART 3 – THE SECOND FLOOR
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Now would be a good time to save, as unfortunately a little backtracking is needed. Revisit all the rooms from Part One, using your newly attained scanner to find the Boos and suck ‘em up. Once you have five, you’ll discover that the previously locked door near the Bathroom way has miraculously opened. Chat to Toad and save again, then disgustingly have a look down the toilet and you should be able to discover a key.
Head back out to the bottom corridor and head eastwards. The key you just fished from the lavatory should open the door on the right, and after you go through there should be another door on Luigi’s right. Go through that as well. Once inside you should use the mirror as an advantage to catch the ghosties. Once you do you’ll be rewarded with the Fire Medal, which allows you to hoover up fire and use it as a projectile missile with a simple tap of the L button. Excellent *taps fingers*.
With your new fangled fire abilities light the candles and escape. Move on to the Fortune Teller’s room. Once inside, light the candles hoover the key off the pillar. Exit and go back to the main corridor. See that floating candle? Light it. Once the candle lights up, the Butler will appear. Follow him till he takes a seat, he’s PORTRAIT GHOST 5. When he sits, suck him up. You should get a key. Take the north door and get rid of the ghosts in the laundry room. Open the washing machine and you’ll get a surprise!
The butler’s key opens up a new door in the top corridor. Once inside, activate all the musical instruments by tapping A, and Melody, PORTRAIT GHOST 6, will appear. Answer her questions, and hoover up her music sheets. Whilst making sure you have the R button held down, catch her. This opens a chest with yep; you’ve guessed it, a key, to the door opposite the Dancing couple’s room.
Once in, light the tabletops candles, and you should see PORTRAIT GHOST 7, Mr. Luggs. Vacuum up the food on his plate. Once you’ve vacuumed everything, dodge his fireballs and get him. Head west to the fridge, where you will see an icy ghost. Fire will take care of him. This will eventually lead to you being presented with the Water Medal, which unsurprisingly allows you to hoover up water and spit it out. Easy, no?
For PORTRAIT GHOST 8, run from Spooky the Dog, until a skeleton pops out from under the flowerbed. Get him and a bone will be thrown, allowing you to tame dog, and then suck him up with your hoover. Next, use your Game Boy Horror and point it at the doghouse, then press A to warp to the graveyard. Examine the graves then take out the three skeletons.
BOSS: This isn’t too tricky. Hoover up one of the smallest black ghosts, then aim it at the purple ghosts to make him vulnerable to the hoover. Repeat this process until they have been eliminated.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
PART 4 – BIG BOO’S HAUNT
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
The key from the last boss can be used to unlock the door near the bathroom, which leads to a courtyard. Tap at the birdhouse to receive Mario’s Letter, and then travel down the ladder in the well to find…Mario!!! Go back along the well and take out the ghost for another key. Go inside the wooden courtyard hut – you should see Toad. Save and use the newly acquired key to open the nearby door.
Inside prepare for PORTRAIT GHOST 10. Tap A next to one of the punching bags to bash Biff Atlas, position Luigi to repeat the procedure twice, then do the Shake ‘n’ Vac. The reward is coins, but if you run on the treadmill to the left of you, you’ll receive a key that opens up a shortcut. In the corridor outside Biff’s room, turn right and climb the stairs. Use the water function to suck up water from the courtyard fountain and douse the flames.
Once there, take out the ghosts, and use the red and blue ceiling and floor pads to reach the chest. Inside is the Ice Metal, which enables you to suck up ice. Your first port of call after this should be the steaming bucket to suck up ice. Go back outside, and run west to find another bathroom. Once there get ready for PORTRAIT GHOST 11. Suck at the shower curtain and blow ice on Miss Petunia, whose become hooverable. After, you know the drill – collect key from chest, then go downstairs past the music room to unlock the door to the south.
Once through you will be greeted by Mr. Slim Bankshot, PORTRAIT GHOST 12. When he takes his shot, vacuum three balls up and smack him with one of them at a time (use his cue to locate him). After completing the task head eastwards. In the next room activate the projector and use the subsequent shadows to locate the spirits, to be rewarded with Mario’s Glove!
Track back upstairs, and find the right hand door in the north-south corridor. Light the candles inside, then step onto the central floor tile to unleash more ghosts. Take them! Through the east door, then press A next to the telescope to see things go a little weird. Step outside, (this is gonna sound really strange), suck up an asteroid and shoot it at the moon! A new path will appear, with Mario’s Star at the end. Once grabbed, go back outside and run west along the top corridor. Turn north and open the right hand door to Nana’s door.
Once there, nab the balls of wool on Nana’s (PORTRAIT GHOST 13) table, and throw all three at her. Once you have sucked her up and she is tucked away safely in your backpack, a new key appears – take it. Go back up to the main foyer upstairs; take the left door, then the first door to the south. Use your hoover to spin the aeroplanes in the ceiling, and after they make one complete turn the Twins, PORTRAIT GHOST 14, will appear. Leave the room then re-enter. Use the nozzle on the hoover to locate the rattling boxes, as they have the twins in. Suck them up and grab Mario’s Shoe!
Retrace your steps to the Fortune Teller’s room (PORTRAIT GHOST 15), and talk to her six times. After a little chit-chat suck her up. Grab the key, leave the room and go back upstairs. Take the north-south corridor all the way down, the run east and go upstairs. Once on the third floor, take the south door. Point the hoover at the wall mounted deer heads and shoot ice at the ghosts, getting a new key. Make sure you are collecting coins and Boos, mind. After, take the west door and the corridor north to the big balcony. You’ll need 25 Boos though to enter.
BOSS: Creep over the Boos to reveal the Big Boo. To destroy him, suck and drag him over to the pointy statue. Ice will freeze the nearby ghosts, allowing you to hoover them all up. East peasy!
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
PART 5 – NOT LONG TO GO!
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Bad news, I’m afraid. You’ll need to backtrack again, this time back to the big balcony, where your newly acquired key opens a door to the west. Now the lights go out. Go back to the main foyer upstairs, then go north, north again, and west to PORTRAIT GHOST 17, Uncle Grimmly! To defeat him, turn away and swing around when he raises his arms. Hoover him up then bag his key. Go back downstairs, take the north door and run east to a new door, where you should be greeted by a staircase.
After, take the north door and pull the generator lever, and take the key.
Go back outside and take the opposite door. After taking out the two ghosts waiting in barrels, suck up the mound of dirt blocking you for a new key. Backtrack to the balcony once more, and go through the door you unlocked earlier. Go down the corridor and through the last door on the right. The chests in the telephone room contain skeletons. Take ‘em. Following that head north, for PORTRAIT GHOST 18!
Activate the clockwork soldiers by activating all the clocks in the room, then hoover up their keys to make them vulnerable. The exit is the elevator in the central hut. Go out onto the roof, take out the Shy Guys, and then blast flames at the icy ghosts. The resulting key can be found on the west roof. Go back through the telephone room and take out the first door on the left. Hit every chest and suit of armour to locate the ghosts and take them out, surprisingly (not) leaving you with a key.
Go north to Jarvis, PORTRAIT GHOST 19. If you rattle all the vases he will pop out. When he does shoot him with ice each time he peeks his head out of a vase to make him grabbable. Run all the way back to the cellars, through the dirt room to the corridor, where you should head for the door to the northwest. Use ice to freeze the green goop and turn the valve, revealing a chest behind the waterfall, which contains a key.
This key opens another door in the past hallway, to meet PORTRAIT GHOST 20, Sir Weston. Light up the two woodpiles and then use fire to thaw Sir Weston, but then suck him up, for another key. Go back to the hallway before Big Boo’s balcony, and enter the last room there. Watch out for Vincent Van Gore’s ghosts that he will chuck at you, and then hoover him up, for another key. Go back to the cellar, and enter the final door in the corridor (you’ll need 50 Boos, though). Enter and prepare yourself, physically and mentally, for…
FINAL BOSS – KING BOO/BOWSER: This is undoubtedly the hardest part of the game. Avoid his attacks, and then suck up one of his spiky balls when he rests. Wander precariously to him, and chuck it at him when he dips his head. Critical Hit! Now use your hoover, moving constantly to avoid the icy attacks. Repeat this process until he’s done for. Congratulations – you have completed Luigi’s Mansion!
