Luigi's Mansion is a series of Action-adventure video games set in the Mario franchise. Taking inspiration from survival horror (albeit with a lighter tone), the series stars Mario's brother Luigi as he explores haunted mansions to capture ghosts.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The player controls Luigi as he traverses through haunted buildings to hunt ghosts. In each game, Luigi is armed with a "Poltergust" (a vacuum cleaner-like contraption designed to capture ghosts) and a flashlight. To capture ghosts, Luigi must first stun them with his flashlight, making them vulnerable to being sucked up by the Poltergust.

Traversal and gameplay are puzzle-oriented, with certain tasks being required in order to progress.
