The game play starts out slow enough to allow you to get the hang of it, then speeds up as you progress "down the Nile" (a nifty way to tracking progress, better than just high scores.
Normally, once I've managed to get through an entire game like this, I delete it and go on to another game. But I can't get enough of this one.
If you're interested, you can download a demo at gameblaster.com and try it for yourself. There are also plenty of tips among the "reviews" at that site to help you get past the hardest levels.
I decided to take a risk and buy it. Let me just say that it's totally addicting!
The object of the game is to fire colored spheres out of the "mystical winged scarab" and destroy the approaching colored spheres by making matches of three or more. The approaching spheres wind through various mazes and the "winged scarab" moves from left to right on the bottom of the screen (unlike Zuma Deluxe, where the shooter rotates 360 degrees from the center).
There are 88 levels to the game (I'm halfway through it), and it would appear that about 13 mazes or so are repeated throughout the levels, but with differing backgrounds. Another thing that is different is the sphere coloring. In the beginning stages, the spheres are green, yellow, red and blue. Later mazes introduced the color purple. I'm at a stage now where white has been added and, judging from one of the intro screens, black will be added as well.
The oncoming spheres snake towards a pyramind (sometimes 2 pyramids simultaneously!), and if you don't eliminate the spheres by that time, the chain whizzes through the pyramid and you lose a life. You shoot the spheres by left-clicking, BUT you can change the color of the ball by right-clicking. At the bottom of the scarab, you're able to see what the next color is going to be which is very strategic if you're getting towards the pyramid and you're being fed a certain color that you don't (desperately!) need.Read more ›
I feel like it wasted my money, because I can't play the whole game. And these troublesome levels do not show up in the one hour trial version.
Along each level you can gain power ups that can assist you in beating a level. For instance, there's one power up that will clear all the spheres of a certain color that are currently appearing on the maze. Another power up will reverse the direction of the snake. Coins are also dropped when you make a match. In addition there are tiny little ankhs that are dropped and if you collect at least thirty of these in one game, an extra life will be given to you.
LUXOR is an entertaining and highly addictive game. However, it can also be really frustrating. There are 88 levels in total and some of the levels are incredibly difficult to beat. I played the game on and off for over a year before I was finally able to beat it. Many people will give up long before they ever reach level 88, let alone beat it. But if you do, you'll actually feel like you achieved something (even if it was just beat a video game).
