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.)

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.

had a blast playing Luxor Evolved. The retro looking graphics is great, boss fights are challenging. Luxor Evolved offers hours worth of gameplay and lots of replay value.

I can be shallow sometimes. Luxor Evolved first got my attention with its unusual retro vector look, imitating arcade classics like Asteroids, Tempest, and Black Widow. Earlier Luxor games had an offputting sort of Egypt kitsch, but Evolved nicely ties the scarabs and pyramids into stylish, colorful vectors.

It's not entirely skin deep, either. Evolved still follows the basic Luxor design, with the player shooting colored marbles from the bottom of the screen at a train of marbles twisting across the screen, trying to match them three or more at a time before they can reach their destination. But the tempo of play is dramatically faster than other games in the genre, power-ups have more dramatic effects, and visual effects are exaggerated, all helping to create a genuine feel of arcade mayhem.

The bosses have a clever design that creates tension by forcing the player to manage matches in several places at once. Secret levels are cute homages to arcade games from the early 80s. It even encourages a one-credit clear by disabling high scores if you choose to continue after losing your last life.

Luxor Evolved is certainly a casual matching game in genre, but it's got enough arcade trappings that it might grab you where similar games failed. Check it out.

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.

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.

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.

A fantastic redesign. It does for Luxor what Pac-Man C.E. DX did for Pac-Man. Highly recommended.

I really enjoy this game a lot.. I played it quite a bit, it's not a very hardware demanding game and it's simple in style and execution.. I plan to play it quite a bit on harder levels to get better scores. highly recommended.

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.

This one is a lot of fun. It can get pretty crazy. Seems faster paced than the other Luxor games I've played.

I expected a reskin of the old Luxor (which is still worth playing) but got an IMPROVEMENT instead. I didn't think they could improve Luxor, with it being a rather simple and elegant game, but they did improve it!

I like the futuristic vector graphics (which also make the game rather small, bytewise),the electronic music (there's even dubstep for the bosses) and the new powerups.

A Zuma clone (Zuma came first, right?) with a very different style, and slightly different mechanics. I love this crap :)

The game play is excellent, with a new take on the Luxor francise. The graphic is very NEON and I love it. The game plays a lot faster than earlier games in the series, but I didn't find that a problem. There are power-ups in abundance as you would expect with Luxor games. However;, and this is a big however; there are only 8 stages each with six levels including a boss battle. Because the game is very fast you'll easily finish this game in 8 hours or less. For $9 I think it's a rip off. Pity as the new look is brilliant.
