Just as a heads up, this and a lot of the old Luxor games have issues running on modern Operative Systems.

You should try the demo and check if you can run it first.

In any case, if you happen to have bought it anyway and can't launch it (like me) you can workaround this issue.
Try making a Windows XP virtual machine and install Steam in it, then install the game.
It's a pain in the ♥♥♥, but it worked for me.

The game is great if you can actually play it.

In Luxor you have to shoot the balls (or spheres..) at the "snake's" balls of the same colour. If there are 3 or more balls of the same colour, they will explode. If the 'snake' reaches the end before you've destroyed all of them, you will lose. Also, there are a few powerups to help you in your quest. That was about the simplest way to describe this game :)

It is hard for me to (not) recommend this game. Luxor is a fun little game and it will most likely enjoy anyone who enjoys casual games but the downside is that, on a regular day, this game will cost you 10 bucks, which is way too much. Also, like most Mumbo Jumbo games, there are (more ugly) other versions of Luxor available online for free.

A simple match 3 or more balls game with an Egyptian theme, which provides a nice distraction when you need to order your head. I love this type of game and these are generally the ones that make me hyper-rage, which is strange considering its so straightforward.

This is probably the worse Luxor game out of the seven Luxor games available on steam. The Egyptian theme is very well done, but everything else feels very unoriginal and bland. I find the power-ups that do drop in Luxor to be very unsatisfactory and lacking in excitement. The map design appears to be rehashed continuously throughout the estimated ~8 hour play through. The music also doesn’t change; I just end up muting the game completely and listen to my own music collection while playing Luxor. If you are a hardcore Zuma fan you may find some redeeming qualities in this game, but to be quite honest I would much rather play Zuma or the superior Luxor known as Luxor Evolved. For everyone else that is not really a fan of this genre and game type; just go buy Luxor Evolved and Zuma.

Luxor games are good unless you purchase them from Steam. Steam people know that the products they sell have problems when downloaded. Problems that are not related to the games themselves, hence all the legalese absolving them fom fraud or false advertising. Don't purchase from Steam.

Challenging old style casual game. Fire marbles to match three and eliminate from the board before time runs out. Simple and fun. Only spoilt by the save system - you have to scomplete an entire stage before quitting or lose all progress.

74/100

Repetitive, difficult, and hella fun. Why?
Well, the gameplay is repetitive as ♥♥♥♥ (repeating levels every 3 stages, only to shove another new one in your face),
the game's difficulty curve is reminiscent of the slope of K2,
and well, at first this game seems like nothing other then the normal marble shooter.
However, it has this charm the wants you to see the ending sooooo bad, or to find out what that NEXT ADDED ♥♥♥♥ING LEVEL is, only to get owned by balls rolling into your base. You just can't put this game down unless you've actually finished it. Of course, this game's sequels are far better (and easier) and you should play them, but this is not simply a game you can just ignore.
