Luxor 2 is both a fun and simple game that can easily get addicting. The objective of the game is to destroy the spheres using a magic Scarab before they reach the pyramids at the end.
In order to destroy the spheres, you must match 3 of the same colored spheres. The design of the game is very simple. Since it takes place in Egypt, there are pyramids and other ancient elements on the screen. The colors used in the background are pretty basic, and stay one color.
The only colors used are for the spheres in order to differentiate between them. The soundtrack has kind of an upbeat and tribal feel to it, which is very appropriate for a game like this. There are also sound effects as well that make the game more interactive while you play it.
Although there are options to adjust the music and sound effects, I suggest leaving them on because it makes the game more interactive.
The controls of the game are very simple. All you are doing is aiming and tapping the screen when you want to launch the sphere. There are control options for the movement, fire sphere, and swapping ball colors when in the Scarab. For movement, it can either be exact or offset.
Fire sphere options can be done by tapping the screen or when the finger is released from the screen. You can also change the ball colors by swiping downward or then a second finger taps the screen.
The objective of the game is clear, which is to destroy the spheres using a magic Scarab before they reach the pyramids at the end. In order to destroy the spheres, you must match 3 of the same colored spheres.
There are 88 different levels in this game, which begin easy then become more challenging as you progress. There are also three different play modes: adventure, survival, and practice.
The adventure mode has three different skills levels: casual, normal, and expert. This game is has leaderboards on GameCenter so you can match up against your friends to see how they’re doing in the game.
I thought this was a fun game to play. Since the objective of the game was pretty simple, I got addicted to it fairly quickly. The graphics are really good and everything all matches up to the Egyptian theme. I like that there are control options in this game so you can change it to what your preference is. I think anyone could easily get into this game and would have fun playing it.
Lastly, it doesn’t help that they filed a complaint against the far superior game Stoneloops of Jurassica. If they were going to that, I wish they can look to it and see what they can improve with their next Luxor’s. It didn’t happen with the second one, so I’m hoping the third time is the charm.
