  • "A" rank

    To obtain an "A" rank, get all the gold mice, catch all the blue ghosts, get both gold diamonds, and collect as much money as possible. You need $100,000,000 to get an "A".

  • Change vacuum power

    There are three different medals you can collect to change the powers of the Poltergust 3000 vacuum cleaner. They are the Fire, Ice, and Water medals. When you collect the Fire Medal, you can suck up ghosts that have a ring of fire around the health hearts. Also, you can press L to spray fire from your vacuum to light candles and hit ghosts with a ice health meter. When you collect the Water Medal, you can extinguish flames that are too powerful for your vacuum to put out. Also, you can press L to spray water.

  • Mario calls

    When you press A, Luigi will call "Mario!". The more damage Luigi has taken, the more desperate his call for Mario will be.

  • Hidden Boo picture

    Although you cannot pull off the projection room screen, you can make it change. Give it a tug with the Poltergust 3000. If you are persistent, you will reveal a huge picture of a Boo. There is another hidden Boo picture in the first floor bathroom. Vacuum at the poster with the word "Monster" on it. A picture of a Boo will appear.
