Challenge of Horus is a secret difficulty mode first introduced in Luxor 2. this difficulty can be found in Luxor 2, Luxor HD, Luxor: Amun Rising HD, and Luxor 2 HD. It is the Luxor 2 engine games' equivalent of the Insane difficulty.

Difficulty Overview

Unlocked after completing Adventure on Expert, Challenge of Horus is a special difficulty mode that spans all 25 maps in the game, divided into 5 stages with 5 maps each; all maps are played with extreme difficulty. Spheres move at 100% speed, the scoring is multiplied by 3, each sphere group starts with 40 spheres, and players start with only 2 lives (except if transferring lives, Ankh Coins, and score from Expert difficulty). In each of the HD games of the Luxor series, Ankh Coins always spawn when a match of 5 or more is made.

The extreme difficulty of Challenge of Horus comes from the spheres moving at very high speed (speed multiplier of 100%) and lots of single color groups appearing (this is especially evident in Luxor 2 and Luxor 2 HD, albeit with an exception on the latter, as noted below). All levels take 600 collapsed spheres in order for the progress bar to be completely filled.

The Luxor 2 HD version of Challenge of Horus is noticeably easier than the original Luxor 2 version, with the spheres moving slower than in Luxor 2. This decrease in difficulty is especially noticeable on Two Lands United in Luxor 2 HD, where the level was mechanically altered to have more like colored groups than normal.
