Welcome to Gamezebo’s walkthrough of Mishap: An Accidental Haunting.

General Game Information

  • Dialogue can be skipped by clicking on the character or on the text box.
  • If you exit the game, it will return you to the exact point at which you left the game.

General Tips

  • Navigation: Each section has 4 rooms to explore – one panoramic room that you can scroll through by moving the cursor left or right, and 3 smaller adjoining rooms. The cursor changes to a door icon when placed over a doorway to an adjoining room. To return to the main room, click on the green arrow on the bottom left of the screen.

  • Hints: When a hint is used, the light bulbs go out. Hints are rechargeable, but all four lightbulbs must be charged to regain a hint. Whenever you clear a room of items and hidden ghosts, the hint will automatically recharge. If you’re stuck waiting for your hint to recharge, it’s best to explore other adjoining rooms first.
  • Clicking penalties: When you accumulate 5 wrong clicks, you’ll get a nasty surprise! The master ghost jumps out at you with a shrill scream, and the room fills with green ectoplasmic gas, making it difficult to see.
  • Hidden Ghosts: Click the green monocle to find hidden ghosts. Move your cursor slowly around the room. You’ll need to click on 3 instances of each ghost to capture them, however, they may only be found in a particular order. The location of the ghosts is constant in every game.

  • Mini-Games: There are 3 to 5 rounds in each mini-game. You may skip the mini-game, but you must go through Round 1 first. If you skip the mini-game, you still receive a Bronze trophy.

Draw 4 cards (any will do, it doesn’t matter). Open the first two cards, and memorize them. You want all your cards to be either a Jack or a very low number (Ace or 2). If either of your first two cards are higher than a 2, trade them in later.

Now use a Lucky Lenses free peek to glance through the card spread. If you see a Jack, Ace, or 2, select it and exchange it with your bad card. Or use the free peeks for your third and fourth cards. Memorize your new cards.

Keep replacing any of your 4 cards with lower values, from the card spread or the discard pile. Memorize each one whenever you change it. If you don’t like the card you picked, just discard it.

When your 4 cards all have low values (Jack, Ace or 2), click "Knock Out" to end the round. All cards will be revealed and counted. The player with the lowest total card value wins.

1st round: Easy round. One of 1st two cards usually a Jack or Ace.

You’ve found the last part of the Bug Blaster gadget. You will now face Dorothy Britton’s ghost in the How Does Your Garden Grow? showdown.

This is similar to tower defense games, where you choose your weapons and the best place to put them. You start out with limited weapons, but get more as you defeat the bugs.

General tips:

You get 5 of each weapon. The best weapons are the mirrors and blue electrical zappers. Use these before resorting to trimmers and honey pots.

The best place to put the weapons are in the middle part of the screen (rather than on top or at the bottom). Put them inside curves and corners, focusing most on the center path. Once placed, weapons can’t be moved, except at the start of a level.

Save your fly swatter hits. Let the weapons do their job. Only when the bugs are close to the flowers should you swat them. To see the remaining health of a bug, let your cursor hover above it.

1st round: Blue zappers and mirrors should be enough. As soon a weapon becomes available, place it.

2nd round: Add honey pots to the center of the weaponry. Put them where they can cover 2 paths.

3rd round: Spiders are easily defeated, except the giant one at the end. Use trimmers to add damage.

Chapter 6: Garage, Showroom, Undercarriage, Bus

Click on the green monocle to enter Ghost Vision mode. Below are the locations of the hidden ghosts for all the rooms in this chapter:

You’ve found the last part of the Phantom Dragster gadget. You will now face Vinny Torino’s ghost in the Speed Demon showdown.

The rules are simple: Click the mouse when the needle hits the green zone (on all 4 gauges and 1 large meter).

1st to 3rd rounds: Somewhat easy, just a matter of timing.

4th and 5th rounds: Hit the mouse button just a notch before the green zone.

Chapter 7: Attic, Art Room, Loft, Supply Room

The Attic is a scrolling panoramic scene. Connecting to the Attic are the doorways to the Art Room, Loft, and Supply Room.

Click on the green monocle to enter Ghost Vision mode. Below are the locations of the hidden ghosts for all the rooms in this chapter:

Once you’ve found all the hidden ghosts and required objects on your item, you can now solve the riddle.

The pictograph riddle reads "Knock the bent nail back into place."

Go to the Loft.

You’ve found the last part of the Art-O-Matic gadget. You will now face Judith Kaufman’s ghost in the Masterpiece showdown.

This is a simple minigame. All you have to do is keep your cursor inside the pink circle as it moves around the screen.

Tips: Don’t look at the drawing. Just keep your eyes on the pink circle. And try not to blink!

There are 4 rounds. For the later rounds, it will be very difficult to keep within the pink circle. Use the circle’s pointer arrow as a guide to tell you which direction it will go next.

Chapter 8: Basement, Boiler, Cellar, Lab

(You can find the password in the blueprint drawing under Messages).

Go to the Lab.

You’ve found the last part of the Fahrenheit Angler gadget. You will now face Burt Flintock’s ghost in the Fire in the Hole showdown.

This is a fishing game, where you try to collect 5 wedding rings in each round.

Finding the right angle to drop the magnet takes some getting used to. There are several obstacles in the way, but you can reel them in or explode them with dynamite.

Spray your fire extinguisher at incoming fireballs. Warning: The number and speed of fireballs increases with every level.

Hit pink glowing obstacles to make them stop moving around, but choose a spot that won’t obstruct your path to the rings.

Blue flames bounce your magnet back up. The only thing you can do is wait till they get out of the way.

Tip for Round 5: Don’t reel in the big metal wheel, or it will consume all your time. Instead, position the pink glowing dynamite near the wheel and explode it.

Conclusion

After the last ghost has been set free, enjoy the cutscene.
