HD Release

A revamped version of the game was released for iOS and Android in 2011. In later of the same year, it was released for PC and Mac. You can find in anywhere, including Steam.

The whole game has been redesigned to high definition graphics. The graphics from Luxor 2 are used, including the sounds, but the music remains the same from its original game.


  • Set was later again seen again in Luxor 2, Luxor 3 and Luxor 5th Passage. There are some levels that are based on him.
  • The level in the loading screen was Oasis of the East.
  • Cleopatra from Threading Cleopatra's Needle was seen in top left of the loading screen.
  • In the loading screen of the original game, the shooter was shooting a green sphere. In HD, it was shooting a fireball. The shooter's secondary sphere color remains the same.
  • The map (including Luxor: Amun Rising) is actually sideways. There wasn't a particular reason why.
  • Luxor, Luxor AR, and Luxor evolved are the only games in the series that load the pyramid from a sprite. This is why all the pyramids are the same, otherwise there would be many pyramid files.
