Another way to know if a door is real is to simply check the map on your Game Boy Horror. If it doesn't show a door in a particular spot, then you'll know it's just a fake door.

50 HP.
Defeat The Clockwork Soldiers
Ok, After you defeat Mr. Grimley (The ghost during the black-out), go to the third floor, and find the 'clock-work room.' Once inside the room, you will witness three toy soldiers inside house things with clocks on top, and to the far left, and far right, you will see two clocks. You will also see a clock to the left of the house-clocks. Go in front of each one, and press 'A' button to turn them on. (You need to do them before time runs out). The soldiers will come out and start going everywhere. Go up to them, and press 'R' button to wind their 'wind-up' key on their back. Then, the number will show up, and suck them until it goes to zero. Be careful, the other soldiers will come after you. When you complete this room, you will be transported to the roof.
Defeating Neville

easy way to find the twins

Easy way to know if a door is fake.
If the door is fake there is no red entrance carpet branching off from the main red carpet.
Everything is the oppisite way
If you want every thing to be the oppisite way beat the game4 once then click on the hidden mansion
Extra Money
In King Boo's room, look on the right and there are two pillars. Vacuum both pillars, and you'll get money. In the same room, try to vacuum up the first chandelier(The lamp thing hanging from the ceiling.).

In Spooky's yard(the place with the dog house), if you see this thing that looks like green meat in the dirt, water it everytime you catch a Portrait Ghost, and after it grows really big, you get 20,000,000 cash altogether.But don't let it die, or else you lost you chance.
Extra Money In King Boo's Chamber Room
When you enter King Boo's room, you will notice on the right is a mirror. A long the small steps leading to the mirror, there are two pillars with flames at the top. Start sucking the pillar closest to the screen. After a few seconds, a whole lot of cash will pop out to increase the chances of getting a better ranked mansion after you beat King Boo.
Find Sue Pea
If you don't know how to get into Sue Pea's room find a key in the sealed room kill ghosts then go into the locked room first when you get there kill a few ghost then go into her room and spray water until she is out of her bed and thrn start vacumming her.
flower power
when you go out the kitchen door where the dog lives, you will notice a seed water it and it will start growing. But you must continue watering it through the game in the end it will give you a golden diamond but dont let it die.
Gold gems
There is aproximately 2 gold gems in the entire game that I have found and they are worth $20,000,000 a piece! One is awarded for catching all 50 boos. And the other one you get from watering that green thing on the ground where you have to beat that dog with a bone to get to the second boss. It is next to the faucet on the mansion. You have to keep on watering it over and over again throughout the game. If you forget to water it then it will die and you wont get the gem. Together it gets you almost have way to getting rank A at the end of the game.
golden mouse
When you walk through the halls of the mansion you notice all these rats. when you suck them up nothing happends but when you find a golden or yellow rat and suck it up it will give you all this money including more diamonds. If you cant find one in the hall ways go to the fortune tellers room and examine the floor behind her seat with the y button press a to examine it and then you will see a yellow rat run to the cheese. switch back to suck mode and suck up the rat.

How do you know if it's a TRICK door?
Are you having trouble with trick doors?
Cant tell if it's a fake? Dont know if it wants
to hit you and slam ya into the wall? Sorry,
got carried away there. Anyways, there are a
couple things you can do to find out.

#1. Look at ur little map thing in the
Game Boy Horror. The door will not appear on
the map if it's a fake door.

#2. This is the easier way, all you do is use
ur vaccum in front of the door. The real doors
will shake, as the fakes will not.

Sorry that my tip is so long! Hope I helped!
know if its trick door
when you open a door sometimes some of them squish you making you lose $ and HP. in order to know not to open these doors blow on it with your vaccum. if it does not shake its a trick door.
Last blue stone!
In the last room before the final boss (the one where you come in behind King Boo). Use your vacuum cleaner to move both the decorations to the right of the entrance and the top light bulbs to get lotsa extra cash, a gold bar and last but not least, A BLUE STONE!

Mirror room
In this room the difficult thing is that you don't really know where the ghosts are and it's confusing because it's always in the opposite direction. There is about five or six ghosts in this room. When you see a ghost appear in the mirror, let it approach you. When it's at one meter away from you, turn quickly and suck it up. Remember that the mirror's image is always in the opposite direction, or you will get hurt.
Money, money, money!!
In certain rooms, there are gold ghost mice and blue ghosts. They give you tons of money and even gems if you get them out. The mice are easy. Just suck them up. The blue ghosts are harder. If it gets away, it's gone. No coming back. Here are the rooms in which they are located. Note that for the mice, you might need to find a cheese wedge on the ground, or they might just appear randomly. I'll give you the rooms, but you have to search them.

2. 2F Hallway (random)

Orindanl theme form Super Mario Bros 1
In Melody Piaimissa's roomthere are instument press the A Button on them and they will play Super Mario Bros 1 theeme
projection room
When you enter, pull the sheet and then strech it and let go. Then there will be a poster that says: Get out of here! Obviously, it's just to scare you. Go to the projector and press A then it will be moving. Go in front of it. Then ghosts will start to appear. Don't forget they are invisible but if you look on the sheet, you can see their shadows. Turn around quickly and suck them up. Watch out; it's not the same as the mirror room!
Projection Room Visual Ghost
Usually when you are fighting the ghost in the projection room they are invisible. Lets change that. Before activating the ghost (By shaking the projector), go to the projector screen and suck it in. Once you get hurt and the 'Get Out of Here' Boo sign pops up, go activate the projector. The Ghost will appear, and since they have no where to cast there shadow upon, they will have to show themselves to you. I know, it is strange, but it is ver helpful!
safari room
in the safari room.shake the table with the 3 deer heads over it. there are 3 water filled ghosts u must defeat with the ice element. (this room is the hardest.) spray them with ice. but dont use all on one ghost.and let go. let them disapear and come back. the 2nd time they come back DONT use ur ice element. use ur vacuum and start sucking. after that youll get the key to the next room that leads to boolusus in the next hallway.
The blackout
here's how to get rid of the blackout:

Now, when you go to the balcony again after you defeated Boolussus,you continue to the left until you see a door. approach it. Then there will be lighting that struck the mansion's roof, and everything will turn black, and all ghosts will be after you. First of all, no panic. If you do, you'll die and restart. Go down, avoiding ghosts if possible,to the foyer. It's the only place you're safe. Save the game. Then, go up the stairs and go get some hearts if you need them in the study, master bedroom, nursery, and twins room. Watch out for the ghosts! Then, go to the wardrobe room. If you turn your back to the mirror, you'll see uncle grimly. When he does his scary pose, turn your flashlight to him and suck him up. You'll receive a key. Go down to the breaker room. When you enter, go directly to the generator.Then, press A and the lights will turn on. No more ghosts!!
Tip for catching hard-to-get ghosts
Sometimes, on ghosts that are very fast and powerful, move iwth the ghost, instead of fully resisting trying to pull it in and end up losing the ghost. Once it slows down, then you stand your ground.
Two Secret Rooms!!!
1.once you have beat the butler use the game boy horror and press x.
now you are in the hidden room.

2.go on the roof and head over to the right chimney and climb up.
fall down the chimney and now you are in the sealed room.
Ways to spot fake doors!!
There are 3 ways to know if a door is fake.

1. Look on your Game Boy Horror, if the door doesnt show up it is fake.
2. Point your vaccum towards the door and press "R" if the door doesn't shake is is fake.
3. Use your fire element on the door, and if it burns the door is fake.

Use these tricks if you are tired of loosing health/money on those stupid doors!!

invisible gem
when your in the room where you get the ice element theres a gem that will vanish when you pick it up it will happen by luck but when he picked it up he was holding air
Light VS. Dark
I have just beat the game last night, but before I did I found this glitch. You know how Luigi hums in the dark and whistles i the light. Well, when I was showing my bother how to play. I was on the second floor hallway geting ready to go to the third floor stairs. After the blackout lights on second floor (hallways) are on, but third floor stairs are not lit. So when he is whistleing in the light, he stops to turn on his flashlight, and then contiues the theme, but hums it. It is just plain wierd!
