Luxor & Luxor Amun Rising

Amun Rising is essentially a continuation of the first Luxor game. Same methodology but different patterns/paths, more stages and more levels in three skill categories (beginner, intermediate and advanced). One nice addition is a scorpion power egg that wipes out all the balls up to the end of the chain. Some of the new patterns are devious and the final level in the final stage is dizzying. If you want to start a new game at the beginning instead of starting at the same stage where you finished, type in “-unlocklevels -unlockstages” (minus the quote marks) at the end of the .exe file.

I like Luxor because of the simplicity and challenge. You can also play a little at a time and save the game, which is good if you don’t want to sit for hours just to play a game for a short time. The game is very challenging.

After ZUMA’s success, a number of clones appeared – but the LUXOR series is the one that actually improved on some aspects of the concept.

A series of colored balls (with the number of different colors increasing every few levels) gets pushed and you have to match them in sets of three or more in order to remove them – and prevent them from reaching the end zone. Instead of having the “shooter” in the center, it is located at the bottom and it slides left and right. This makes for some quite difficult shots (especially when obstructed by the advancing row of balls) and raises the difficulty of the game.

On the other hand, the power-ups are more powerful, at the end of every round a number of coins and gems drop and “catching” them add lives to your paddle. It seems pretty straight-forward yet it can become highly…addictive!

Compared to the first installment of the series, LUXOR-AMUN RISING seems somewhat easier; yet, it will fulfill the funs craving for more pharaohnic fun!

This is an example of what has come to be known as Casual Gaming: small, resource-light games that are fun for the whole family.

It would be a good idea to download the 60-min trial version from a casual games site, such as REFLEXIVE (you can Google it), and decide for yourself whether this is indeed your cup of tea.

RECOMMENDED!

I like this game because it has so many different levels, and the challenges change.

This and all of the Luxor games are just a blast to play. I’ve played Atlantis, but these are so much better. More things are happening, yet they are still very playable.
