Holy cr*p this game. Trippy as f*ck. Fast, swift, fleeting. Shot at them coloured circles like a motherf*cker! Boom! Zap! Zing! Another explosion! Don't let 'em fill your pyramid, if you know what I mean. Holy sh*t this game. One of the best Luxor\Zuma games I've ever played. Maybe the best one.

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

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.

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 Evolved

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.)
