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.
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.
