Luigi’s Mansion 2D: Eternal Night is a fan game that transplants Luigi’s vacuum cleaning ghostbusting antics into a 2D pixel art adventure, with lots of haunted rooms to explore, secrets to discover, five elemental powers and even some bosses to battle.
Aside from it’s 2D pixel art stylings, Luigi’s Mansion 2D: Eternal Night is a lot like it’s official Nintendo counterparts. In the game you explore a mansion filled with haunted rooms. Most rooms will require you to defeat the ghosts within them to unlock the exit and earn you a key to a new room. There’s also lots of hidden cash and heath bonuses that you can discover by hoovering around the rooms.
Combat in Luigi’s Mansion 2D: Eternal Night is similar to the original, with you stunning the ghosts with your flashlight then using the vacuum pack to suck them up. There are also five different elemental powers (fire, water, ice, earth and electricity) that you can blow out of your pack to dispatch any particularly tricky ghosts.
The current build of Luigi’s Mansion 2D: Eternal Night features a large amount of content, with 39 unique rooms, a wide selection of different ghosts to fight, lots of secrets and four boss ghosts to dispatch. Even in its current form it’s a very polished experience – the only major annoyance is the save system that requires you to exit the entire mansion, which can mean a lot of unnecessary backtracking. Other than that though it’s a fantastic fan made outing for Mario’s little brother. Highly recommended.
Note: You Can Switch Between Elemental Powers by Pressing 1-5 (They’re All Unlocked at the Start)
