Mansion Bros

A fan game of a certain green fellow's exploits in trying to clean a mansion that is full of ghosts. Suck up ghosts, unlock doors, and find the trophy to conquer the mansion. Up to 8 players!

Disclaimer: I claim no ownership of the characters appearing in this game. This is a work of fanart, and I have no intention to profit from this work.

How to play

Arrows to move, any action button to use your vacuum. Suck up ghosts and find the trophy.
Other players can join in by pressing their action buttons. Game ends if all players run out of health. See if you can find every single diamond!


  • if you use your vacuum while holding a direction, you will suck in that direction. You can then strafe around by walking in any other direction.
  • want to play multiplayer but don't have a ton of controllers? If you have the pico8 desktop client, run the following command to have gamepad users start at player 3, and players 1 and 2 can use the keyboard (ESDF and SHIFT for p2):
    pico8 mansion_bros.p8 -joystick 2 
  • this game is fairly easy, but if you just want to ease up the difficulty even more, you can do so in the pause menu. The difficulty can be toggled to "kid mode" and back at any time.
  • Want to switch characters midgame? You can do so in the pause menu.
  • There is a continue function in this game, but no save feature. It's not a very long game, so this shouldn't be a big deal.

Had a fun time again breaking through walls and exploring, I went around out of bounds and then clipped from the top into this cavity ;p
Probably got this coming but it seems the Boos win this time!

@SmellyFishstiks hahaha! Locking you in-bounds is on my to-do list.

This was really fun! I'll have to come back tomorrow and try to find all the diamonds. I got 3 stars this time!
