Controls: Cursor keys to move Hector, space brings up the options.

Phantom Mansion: The Red Chamber has you controlling Hector the Spectre Detector through the first chamber of the Mansion. Hector must make his way through 22 levels filled with devilishly good puzzles using crates, switches and keys to retrieve all the skulls from the chamber, but he must also avoid collapsing floors, zombies, skeletons, curses and the void. Phantom Mansion: The Red Chamber is the first of the Phantom Mansion games, with 7 more parts to come!

I think this is my favorite game that gimme5games has ever sponsored. I am honestly probably only giving this the highest rating in the series, becausIt was my favorite submission for Halloween of 2007 as well.e it is probably the easiest in the series. While it may not have the most action, it is great as a puzzle game. The graphics are fantastic (no visible pixels) and there is a lot of room for you to go around and explore. It is probably the best way of starting this series as it really builds up from here.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


I noticed a few misplacements of staircases, but other than that, this game fits in as a great puzzle adventure.

Great start!

Where it all started. The Phantom Mansion series is one of my favorite Newgrounds Puzzle series, especially because it reminds me of old-school games like Kickle Cubicle and The Adventures of Lolo (NES puzzle classics). The controls are smooth, and the puzzles are sometimes tricky, but never frustratingly difficult. The only real complaint I have about this installment is that a lot of the levels feel like game mechanics tutorials, and it seems that very few of the levels stand on their own outside of this. That being said, I understand that it's the first part of a very long game series, and so having a bunch of "getting used to the game" levels is to be expected, and it was still amazingly fun to play.
