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 eight 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.

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.

Trivia

  • 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.
