A stunning arcade re-skin of the popular match-3/shmup mashup series with good production value. Now it looks like Tempest, sounds like Blade Runner, and plays like Galaga. Quite intense stuff, unlike anything you would usually associate with the brand.

It still banks on the 3 matches -> powerup mechanic, and there is only one play mode which is score attack through ~50 levels. While levels differ only in marching patterns of neon marbles, plenty of variety comes from whopping 25 kinds of powerups you gradually unlock.

It's mindless fun to pull off combo, pick them up and trigger spectacular vector-shatters and sound effects in bullet time, easily enough to hold interest for ~2 hours of one playthrough (which can be suspended/resumed anytime.) Regular powerups are instant RNG, but supers can be deployed at discretion, so some forward-thinking is called for as well.

Extra point for the dubstep music which ebbs and flows with the gameplay. Bonus stages, secret levels, and epic boss battles wrap up a lean and mean package.

4 difficulty settings with separate Steam leaderboards inject much-needed speed boost (if nothing else,) but I won't suggest serious score runs because of obvious balancing issues. Achievements are supported as well.

A bit thin on the content, nevertheless what's in there is a sublime arcade experience to zone out to. Highly recommended if vector is your kind of retro.

This games combines best aspects of well known Luxor/Zuma games and Geometry Wars.. It's fast paced as GW, graphics is kind of similar... adrenalne rush since the first minute until the end. It has regular boss fights which are cool idea, new powerup, bonus levels where you are shooting unlimited powerup etc. Really good game, bets Luxor for sure.

One of my favorite games. The action is straightforward 3-marble, but the graphics, sounds, and pace are just right. There are no frilly side goals and no cut scenes. Even the levelling up is done for you so you can get back to shooting those Tron-ish marbles without interruption. It's the only game of this sort that I've replayed many times.

I'm a big fan of marble poppers in general, and Luxor Evolved is one of the best I've played. The flashy neon and techno aesthetic makes it stand out from other games of the genre, and fits with the fast-paced gameplay full of powerups and explosions. Can get a bit repetitive, but there's some nice variation in the form of bonus stages and boss battles.

I played several games of the Luxor franchise and, I must say, this is looks more different than any of the other games. Luxor Evolved has bright, neon graphics with a very dark background whereas other Luxor games have been based on Egyptian architecture. This game appears to pay tribute to 1980s arcade classics such as Asteroids, Berserk, and Pac-Man.

The basics of the gameplay remain the same: you are a scarab at the bottom of the screen shooting spheres that correspond to the colors being pushed by the evil scarabs in an attempt to breach the pyramid. If they do breach the pyramid, you lose a life. What is different about breaching the pyramid from previous Luxor games is that the spheres will move back and you will have to shoot them down again. Previous Luxor games simple rushed the spheres into the pyramid upon breaching the pyramid. In Luxor Evolved the spheres will be rushed past you into the pyramid only after losing all your lives. Making three consecutive matches of spheres will throw up a powerup in the air that you must catch to gain some advantage such as reversing the horizontal movement of the spheres, turning a group of spheres into one color, or stopping the spheres temporarily to give you time to shoot them with less stress.

The neon lights are accompanied by a retro soundtrack. I think the soundtrack is not very diverse, but still entertaining enough to keep from being boring. As in previous Luxor games, you will find bonus items after destroying a scarab and your scarab gobbles it up in a Pac-Man like manner. There are bonus rounds that require you to take out spheres flying in patterns using your throwing knives. Secret levels are very interesting, but must be unlocked by collecting a fixed number of treasures, including fruits and coins. Survival levels test your ability to withstand several scarabs moving spheres toward the end of the pyramid within a set time. Another new type of level is the boss level. Boss fights require you to shoot spheres into the sphere chains circling the boss’ eye. In the meantime, the boss is attacking with rows of spheres below the aforementioned sphere chain. All of this action is occurring while listening to the techno soundtrack.

If you are a fan of Luxor games, you will be surprised by the dark background and neon colors presented by Luxor Evolved. However, you will be familiar with the chain reactions that look quite dazzling when a string of three or more spheres are eliminated. I found it quite entertaining to see secret levels showing a Pac-Man like maze and a Berserk inspired background. In my opinion, however, the Luxor games presenting Egyptian hieroglyphics were aesthetically better looking than Luxor Evolved. I first played this game in the Hard difficulty mode and I finished it after 8+ levels. It was unique and a laugh out loud (lol) moment to be able to continue shooting spheres when the closing credits were running. Scarabs were still moving rows of marbles when the game was over and the credits were running.

I think that Luxor Evolved is a fun game for those who enjoy arcade classics that have been remade in modern times. It is a game that will be entertaining for a few hours, but I do not view it as a puzzle game with a high replay value.

My Score: 7/10

Luxor Evolved is a fun and fast-paced game, you can enjoy the music and sounds while playing. It can be easy at first but things can go a bit fast and tricky but it will be rewarding in the end. You get to use power-ups and all that. I use my own tactics to complete levels. I like playing this game. Also I'm giving those who I recommending this to a warning, it can be a bit addictive, so be careful on how much you play.

It's PuzzLoop/Zuma with a "Neon" workover and a shoot-em-up style firing system - and it's really quite good.

It has 4 difficulties which are 'No skill required', 'Gets Boring Fast', 'Tough' and 'Locked until you beat Tough' - the first 2 being zero-challenge and the third being reliant as much on luck as skill (put simply, you'll get a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ deal of colors sometimes and die)

That's a problem with most of these games tho - seems unfair to blame this one for that!!

Even if I love the Luxor games, sadly I can't recommend this one. Never has a game deserved the seizure warning at the beginning more (and it's missing!). Between all the light effects, flying around glowing stuff and sparkly explosions I find it impossible to play longer than half an hour in a row without serious headache.

A bit less would have been more here :)

This game is ♥♥♥♥. People love this game and candy crush and they are just repetitive matching games that have pretty much no innovation. The only way you'll do well in this game is if you play luxor all the time. You have to stop 2 different trains of colors that are completely rainbows and move super fast and have super short tracks. Not even the mechanics make sense or follow a set rule. If you form a combination of three sometimes the chain will shrink backwards to the closest ones, but other times the ones on the side towards the end will keep getting pushed forward, meaning each time you try forming a group of 3 on them they keep moving further and further forward which makes no sense since you have to form 3 to stop it. You basically have to get lucky and get a special power or you already lose, which makes no sense. You never get the colors you need and the things move 30 miles an hour. Then if you form a group of 3 and break the chain but it still pushes the other side forward into the end thing you lose. You only get 3 lives then you lose everything, and it's not explained how you get more lives, are there tons of power ups and different symbols that fall but you have no idea what most of them are and if you actually need them or they do anything. Not to mention they fall super fast and sometimes 3 at a time meaning you miss 2/3 the stuff because you're busy trying to stop the chain thats moving way too fast on the super short track. Unless you're one of the casual luxor/beweled/(insert any other repetitive ♥♥♥♥ casual game derps eat up) then don't waste your time on this steaming pile. 4.5/10.

Take the old Luxor games. Remove everything related to Ancient Egypt. Add lots of LED lights so it looks like Sci-Fi. Add Electronic music close to dubstyle. = Luxor Evolved.

Luxor Evolved looks a lot different then the other games carrying the same name but at it's core it's still the same game with lots of casual fun.
There are some differences in this version of Luxor though; There are survival missions, bonus missions and even boss fights!
For the people who don't know: Luxor is about shooting the right colour 'balls' at the right same colours in the 'snake', if there are 3 or more colours they will get destroyed. If not, you lose.

I recommend Luxor:Evolved to any casual game lover!

Luxor is normally a casual game. There are these snakes of coloured balls, you need to shoot matching coloured balls to make them disappear, before they get to where they want to go. Same thing as "Zuma", except that instead of your player being rooted to the spot and rotating to aim your gun, your gun can move left and right along the bottom of the screen, and always shoots straight up. So - to me, it feels like Zuma crossed with Space Invaders.

This version has nice retro-futuristic arcade graphics, good fast pace, it has a feeling of needing high skill while not actually being that difficult to play, a feeling of progression as you earn new power-ups - and they gain levels, and it has boss levels (yes really!).

It really feels like an arcade game, when I was expecting something more like a mobile app. Which is a nice surprise!

I don't know if this is too obscure of a way of explaining, but it's a bit like the difference between "Space Invaders" and "Space Invaders: Infinity Gene". I guess that's why it's called "Evolved". :)

It was long, hard (I'm looking at you, Elite Mode), and plentiful, but the game (and hopefully me) still stands strong.

The game still represents it's original gameplay, but remixing into new and interesting ways. It changes everytime you play it, and it can get frantic if you're unfamiliar to the series. But a lot of practice will get you in the high score list. Eventually. :/

If all else fails, the Power Shards should give you a better edge. Though you need 6 of them, it'll be worth it when you devastate every crystal on the path.

Whether you're just a fan of the series or genre, or if you're a hardcore puzzler, Luxor Evolved will not dissappoint. (Most of the time.)

Luxor Evolved is a high-speed Luxor game presenting a successful combination of classic concept and a novel setting. Smooth control, well-balanced difficulty, gorgeous photoelectric effects and nice soundtrack provides me lots of fun. It took me around 3 hours to beat the whole game on normal difficulty when I first play it, which is just an appropriate length for me.

I'd like to promote this game to those who enjoy old school game and love to experience new gameplay. Through this game, you could gain both at the same time.

Fun to play!!!

Luxor has always been one of my favorite match-3 games alongside many others; mostly played during my late childhood. This version of Luxor, after almost 10 years, takes the cake. Fast paced action, amazing soundtrack, and definitely more intense than its predecessors. Not only that, but you also have bonus levels within the game. (You'll have to find out what they are yourself, though.)

Quis fazer logo essa avaliação antes que acabem as promoções e evitar que alguém perca esse jogão hehehe. Eu sou fã de puzzles e matches 3, então já joguei outras versões do Luxor nos consoles no passado, sempre gostei do título. Comprei este aqui na Steam porque estava em promoção e era o único que eu tinha visto com suporte para controle. Este é um daqueles casos de jogos que passam despercebido por nós por acharmos que ele é apenas mais um na multidão, mas Luxor Envolved trouxe de volta o prazer de jogar Luxor, como se nunca antes tivesse jogado. O jogo é visualmente empolgante, tem vários tipos de power-ups desbloqueáveis e o mais legal: Bosses. Isso mesmo, ao fim de cada estágio, um boss aparecerá com um quebra-cabeça diferente para você resolver e vencê-lo. Achei essa adição ao jogo fantástica e tudo a ver com o visual futurista e si-fi. É um jogo que jogarei por muitas horas ainda, com certeza. Valeu cada centavo.

I'm not sure how or why this exists but it exists. Luxor has always been towards the runty end of casual, what with taking the least interesting bits from Breakout and Puzzloop and not even really trying to do anything vaguely interesting with anything it does take from. It always, always felt like a bit of a "yeah, I want a marble blaster but totally not Zuma honest guv" thing.

And yet here we are with a vector reimagining of the game, somewhere in the region of Dark Castle Software or Sokurah's house styles and very, very pretty it is too. Yeah, I'm easy and I'm easily sold on things which glow. I can't say I actually imagined for a second it'd be any good but it is good and I'm not sure I know how to parse that. Sure, it's easy. it's tremendously easy and the difficulty curve is pretty much close to non existent but it's satisfying so that's OK, I think.

It is, still, Luxor at its heart. You have a bat that you move across the bottom of the screen to fire the appropriate coloured marble at the marble snake thing that makes its way down the screen. But I dunno, whilst the formula remains the same, the stark neon glow, the great sound effects, the classic arcade bonus rooms, it's like someone really took the time to try and make it work as best they good and then make it pretty too.

I like it. I like it a lot and it surprised me. It's perhaps trying too hard to straddle the casual divide but who cares when you've got neon exploding marbles all over the shop? Did I mention the bonus stages are great btw? The bonus stages are great.

A fun game with a decent amount of replay value (hint: you're probably going to have to go to Hard/Insane for some of the score/unlock targets) but some major flaws (NO COLORBLIND MODE, WHAT).

Do you like casual games in the Luxor and/or Zuma series? Get on board with this.

It's difficult to decide whether to recommend, or not recommend this game. Graphically, it's very nice to look at. The game also includes bosses this time around. You basically try to match 3 or more balls circling around the boss a few times to pass the boss stage. There are 4 difficulties. Unfortunately, the game lacks any sort of depth to make me want to keep playing. If you enjoy the single game mode that the game offers to play over and over, then you will be happy with it. The upgrades you can unlock will reset everytime you start a new game. If those stayed permanently leveled up, that would give me a lot more reason to play it. It's also the hardest Luxor game in the series. Normal difficulty is hard enough, but the 2 harder ones will require lots of game overs and restarts to pass the stages. I got about 4 hours out of this game, before I didn't feel like playing anymore.

If I had to sum it up in four words, it's like laser techno Egyptian Zuma. There are awesome zazzy music and lights in a half-DDR, half-VirtualBoy style (with none of the eyestrain). It's got a whole bunch of ancient motifs like Scorpions and Pyramids, and some unique boss battles against what I think are Egyptian gods. I'm quite surprised at how good I became in so short a time. It's entertaining and never happens the same way twice, and it's the kind of addictive where you start seeing the shapes around the edges of paragraphs even when you're not playing. I'm seeing that right now. And even if you're colorblind, each colored ball has a different symbol on it, so you can tell where you need to shoot in order to explode all of them massively with fire and lightning. The achievements are also not too difficult but they do require quite a bit of effort to get. You won't be disappointed with Luxor Evolved.
