(From Enter the Haunted House, if you dare. Atari’s classic groundbreaking game is back with more chills, cool new unlockables and plenty of spooky new enemies. Discover hidden secrets, mystical tombs, and new towers and catacombs, as you follow your grandfather’s footsteps on an epic adventure, searching for the magical urn that will lead you to his whereabouts. But beware – danger lurks behind every corner! Are you brave enough for the task, or are you afraid of the dark depths of The Haunted House?

Step #1: Normal Playthrough:
I gave this a 4/10 on the difficulty more so not because it's hard, but it's time consuming. The majority of this game can be done on one play-through, although you can go back and play any of the levels at any time, once you have unlocked them to retrieve missing items and health. More may be needed for "The Hungerer" achievement because if you don't have your health down a lot, you won't get that many health packs. 

There are 4 levels: Mansion, Attic, Basement and Catacombs. There are also 3 difficulty levels: Spooky, Frightening, Horrifying. The difficulty does not effect the achievements so for an easy 150, I suggest playing on Spooky (easy).

There are different Treasures to pick up along the way, only 5 are needed for the "In the Attic, with the Knife" achievement. There are 3 different keys to unlock doors (Emerald, Skeleton and House). Some door may require 2 of the same keys or a combination of keys. There are doors that can only be opened by using a lever (just press X when near it). Also, there are 4 lanterns (yellow or normal, red, green and blue). Each lantern will allow you to move through secret doors. When you have the correct lantern, the door will have that color outline. 

Step #2: Multiplayer:
There are 2 achievements for Multiplayer. They are "Locksmith Apprentice" and "Veni, Vidi, Vici." Multiplayer is local only and cannot be played over Live. The "Locksmith Apprentice" may take mulitple playthroughs as well in order to get 50 doors opened. 

Clean Up:
For some of the remaining achievements such as "Exorcist," "The Bright Side," and "The Hungerer," you may need to play multiple times. I got "The Bright Side" on my full second playthrough and got "The Exorcist" after 2 full playthroughs plus the first floor in the Mansion. Depending on how many health packs you get throughout the game will also determine how many times you will have to play to get "The Hungerer." Personally, I replayed floor 2 of the Mansion 4 times in a row. Three times I got 2 health packs on it, the other time, only one. So it is very random.

*Play through the game on Spooky (easy) level as difficulty doesn't effect the achievements. If you do not get all the achievements on your first play-through, then replay the levels to find what you are missing. 

*If you die at all, then you would need to start a New Game for the Immortal Beloved achievement. Starting New Games will erase all your stats.

*Multiplayer is local only. For the Multiplayer achievements, you need to start a new game and cannot just play the final boss level.

Haunted House is a decent upgrade from the old Atari version. This game is not hard to master, just takes a little time in going through the levels. The nice part is you can continue your game at any time and not have to restart.

Defeat all four bosses in Haunted House    

You will get this as you go through the levels. At the end of each Level (4th floor of each part) is a boss. This achievement along with "Heart of Stone" and "Immortal Beloved" (provided you did not die during the game)will unlock once you leave the Mansion. 

Mansion = Bats - Beat them by lighting 4 fireplaces.

Attic = Stone Monster - Beat him by destroying his minions using the Eye of Sour-On (obtained during the attic level)

Basement = Giant Spider - You have to navigate around the maze in order to find the 4 sections the spider is in. Make sure you have the Flaming Branch (obtainable right before the battle) to beat him.

Catacombs = Zachery Graves - To defeat him, you will need to use the Skull of Enlightenment, the Eye of Sour-On or the Flaming Branch to beat his minions, then pick up the Hand Grenade and go near him and press A to set it off. Do this three (3) times then run straight up to exit the mansion when it starts shaking. 

**Note: Don't bother stopping on the Zachery Graves level to find anything while you are running out, you cannot search.

Get frozen in fear 100 times   

When you run into Ghosts and Monsters in the house, some will freeze you. You will be prompted how to get "unfrozen" (usually move the L stick side to side). Have this done to you 100 times to get the achievement.

Kill 100 ghosts   

All the monsters, ghosts, spiders, bats, skeletons can be killed by having a light around them. The ones that work for lights are the lanterns, candles (on some), torches, flares, flaming branch and the Eye of Sour-On. This achievement however, only pertains to the ghosts. You can go back and replay levels for this achievement. I got this after 2 full playthroughs and then level 1 of the Mansion.

Heart of Stone20
Complete game without dying while frozen in fear    

You "die" when you are sent back to the last fireplace you stopped at. The fireplaces are checkpoints. Basically, for this achievement, when you are frozen, quickly follow the on-screen prompts to get out of it before your health is gone. This will unlock as long as you don't die while frozen once you leave the mansion.

Immortal Beloved25
Beat the game without dying    

While similar to the above achievement, this one means you can't die at all. You die when you are sent back to the previous checkpoint or fireplace. You can get this and the above achievement if you complete the game without dying. 

Watch your facial expressions. When your face is basically a skeleton looking face, your next encounter is death. Find small or large health to get you back to normal.

Also, if you die, you would need to start a new game to get this achievement. Starting a new game will erase all previous stats though.

In the attic, with the knife20
Collect the Empty Revolver, Rusty Knife, Bloody Candlestick, Lead Pipe, and Rope    (1) 

Search every closet, chest, and bookshelf for these items. I found the Lead Pipe in the Mansion Level on floor 2 and the Rope on floor 4. The Bloody Candlestick was found on floor 3 of the Mansion. The Empty Revolver and the Rusty Knife were found in the Attic Level.

Locksmith's Apprentice25
Unlock 50 doors in multiplayer mode   

This is a multiplayer achievement as stated. Multiplayer can only be done locally and not over Live. You will need to begin a new game under Multiplayer to unlock this achievement.

The Bright Side10
Use light sources a total of 1000 times  

Light sources come in the forms of Matches, Candles, Torches, Lanterns (there are 4: Normal, Red, Green and Blue), Cell Phones, Eye of Sour-on, Flaming Branch, Staff of the Magi-Straight and the Skull of Enlightenment. Cell Phones last the longest but don't give up that much brightness. The Eye of Sour-On, The Flaming Branch, Staff of the Magi-Straight and the Skull of Enlightenment can be used for quick hits on monsters, but they need to recharge, while the others you can only carry a few at a time.

Turn them on for this achievement. I got this on the last level of Catacombs during my 2nd playthrough.

The Hungerer10
Consumed 100 health packs   

During your searching, you may get small or large health packs. Find 100 and the achievement is yours.

Veni, Vidi, Vici!25
Escape the mansion after defeating Zachary Graves in multiplayer    

As stated, this is done in multiplayer. Multiplayer is local only not over Live. Also, while the last Boss level will be unlocked once you finish the game in Single Player mode, you actually need to play a full game under Multiplayer for this achievement. 

You call this Ocheology??10
Kill 50 enemies with a magical light source   

Using the Eye of Sour-On, the Flaming Branch, Staff of the Magi-Straight or the Skull of Enlightenment on your enemies multiple times will net you this achievement.
