Luxor: Amun Rising is second game of Luxor game series. The game has been released in 12th October, 2005. The gameplay is very similiar to Luxor with added difficulty options.

It consists of about 25 levels in 14 stages. The antagonists of the game are the Megiddo and the aim of the game is to defeat their army.

Mechanics

The colorful spheres forcefully moves forward by a pusher called Scarab to the pyramid. Always avoid the spheres from entering the pyramid by shooting the sphere to its correct color. Match three or more to gain points. Matching three chains can earn you one out of nine power-ups. Finishing a whole line of spheres can earn you a gem worth of points after the scarab has been eliminated. Fill the meter to finish the level.

If you failed to eliminate all in the line of spheres and it entered pyramid, you will lose one life and forced to try the level again. After you failed the level, the message will read "FOUL!". To earn an extra life, collect 30 golden ankh coins. If you lose all the lives you have, the game is over.

You can simply shoot the sphere by left-clicking the mouse. If the current sphere is no help, you can always change by right-clicking. But remember, always match the sphere to its correct color.

Trivia

  • 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.
  • The map (including Luxor) is actually sideways. There wasn't a particular reason why.
  • The level in the loading screen seems to have a layout shared with Anubis Aegyptus.
