From the Manufacturer

As addictive as it is exciting, Luxor is an action-puzzle game that takes you on a thrilling adventure across the lands of Ancient Egypt. The mysterious goddess, Isis, has enlisted you to battle Set and his evil minions. With 88 mind-blowing levels, the challenge will not be an easy one. You must use your mystical winged scarab to shoot magical spheres and destroy the approaching colored spheres by making matches of three or more. Stop them all before they can reach the pyramids at the ends of the paths... or all of Egypt is doomed!

To aid in your quest, unleash the awesome powers of Isis by catching the various falling power-up talismans, such as explosive Fireballs, thundering Lightning Bolts, or magical Multi-Color Spheres that make matches of any spheres. Eliminate an entire chain of spheres to destroy the scarab minion pushing them and collect the sparkling bonus gem hidden within. You can even earn an extra life by collecting 30 golden Ankh coins.

As you battle Set and his minions, enjoy the awesome original music score and thrill to the electrifying sound effects. Filled with excitement, adventure, and tons of explosive action, there is only one question you must ask yourself: Can you thwart Set's diabolical plans and save Egypt?

There are many "match three" games out there right now but this is absolutely the best, most addictive game I've every played (and believe me, I've played A LOT OF THEM).

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 bought my son a new computer and it came with a variety of game demos, including Zuma Deluxe. Well, when I went to the store to inquire about it, I was told they didn't have it...but had something similar: Luxor.

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.

I'd like to give this game five stars. It's fun, fast, and and entertaining and I really enjoy playing it. Unfortunately they designed a couple of the levels too hard. Level 5-4, for example. It's nearly impossible to get through this level. If you do, they have an even harder version of it later in the game. Do a search for Luxor 5-4 or 8-4 and you'll see tons of comments about people stuck on these levels.

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.

I have gotten through all 13 levels at least 100 times It's not that I'm so good at video games - It's that I've been playing Luxor for 10 years. I never get tired of trying to improve my score.. Anyone can get through all levels. It just takes practice. Levels that I once thought impossible, I now find easy. Luxor is what I play when I take a break. It has greatly improved my hand-eye coordination, speed of response, impulsivity, and color discrimination. It is especially useful as a video game for children (or adults) with ADD. Most of all, it's fun!

Luxor is a casual matching/strategy game. You are given a shooter/paddle that shoots out colored spheres. At each level a maze is presented before you. A train of colored spheres appears at the beginning of the maze and progresses its way through the maze. Your objective is to get rid of all the colored spheres by lining up at least three matching colors by using your shooter. Each level itself becomes a little bit more difficult as the snake of spheres moves faster and faster and there are more and more of them. Also, as you progress each level become more difficult as the mazes become more complicated and your aim become blocked by objects. Later, the game gets even harder as more colored spheres are added.

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).
