Thi mission is all about speed so be sure to read our strategy here, you'll be sure to beneft.
To unlock this mission, you must collect all five of the Gloomy Manor Boos and collect this mansion’s Dark Moon piece.
Like all invasion-based missions, groups of ghosts appear in random locations. Your task is to move from objective to objective, capturing all ghosts as quickly as possible.
When the mission starts, wait for Professor E. Gadd to spot the first objective. At this point, only a single room is infested. Use the Touch Screen map to identify the effected area, then get to that location as quickly as possible. The marked room can contain any combination of Greenies, Hiders, and Slammers.
Remember that in addition to the map, the Touch Screen can be used to display objective descriptions. Tap the button in the lower-right corner to switch between the two modes.
Clear the room to receive new objectives from Professor E. Gadd. Once you do, ghosts appear in two separate rooms at the same time. Clear both rooms to receive your last round of objectives. Professor E. Gadd identifies three simultaneous infestation sights. Tackle them each, one by one. Clear the mansion of all ghosts, then answer the Duel Scream to complete the mission and return to the Bunker.
A single room can contain several ghosts, but they’ll generally attack in small groups. It’s much easier to earn a 3-star rating if your Poltergust is fully upgraded, so consider postponing your first attempt until your equipment is up to snuff. During invasion-type missions, it’s more important than ever that you capture multiple ghosts with each attack. Doing so greatly reduces your completion time and serves as your primary source of treasure.
Slammers and Hiders can be a handful, but specially equipped Greenies are the enemies most likely to cost you precious seconds. If a Greenie is wearing sunglasses, A-Pull them off as quickly as possible. If a Greenie is sporting a makeshift shield, make sure you disarm it at the first opportunity.
When dealing with multiple infestations, it’s usually best to deal with the closest objective first. In Gloomy Manor, the Study serves as the major exception to this rule. Once you enter the Study, the secret passage to the Studio serves as your only exit. Consider this when you plan a route through the mansion—if you must enter the Study, try to take care of any infestations on level F2 beforehand. As with any mission, a high rating depends on moving quickly, avoiding damage, and collecting the bulk of the available treasure.
