Luxor 5th Passage. The fifth game in the Luxor
series. A match-3 marble shooter set on another adventure through Egypt.
The main objective is to stop the evil deity Set from taking over the united lands while fighting alongside his nephew Horus
. Throughout the game, you must create matches of three or more colored spheres and prevent the scarabs from entering your pyramid. Unlike the other games in the series, this one features Blast Mode
and Player's Choice
My opinions of it all: To some players of Steam, this review may seem a bit misleading. Recommend watching some gameplay of this game before purchasing. The writer of this review is not responsible for any disappointment upon this game's purchase.The Good
Before Steam, I used to play simple games such as this one and didn't really complain too much about the repetiton the game had. Another interest was the [Egyptian] mythology that grabbed my attention. Though small, the soundtrack was very fitting, and the power-ups were lovely whenever collected, especially the four new ones exclusive to this very game: Black Hole, Double Shooter, Lead Barrage, Spiker.The Bad
At some point in the game as I neared the end, one particular power-up seemed to bug or glitch, malfunction upon collection: Sorter. If the stage was cleared and this was collected, Luxor 5 would instantly crash. Restarting the game, it was obvious that the progress wasn't saved, leaving me to start over. Sorter also didn't exactly work as intended, having all the spheres pushed by the scarab closest to the pyramid vanish from the screen and never reappeared organized by color.Overall
This was, yet, another awesome game in the Luxor
series. I managed to complete the game all the way in a few hours, but time doesn't matter all that much to me. Again, this writer is not responsible for any disappointment receive upon the purchase of this very game. You have been warned.
