Images of Luxor 2

MumboJumbo released these 20 images from the Xbox 360 version of Luxor 2, to be released on Xbox Live Arcade. The series have been pretty successful on the PC, and a PSP version was released last year. It offers over 85 maps, so at least if will have alot of content. The achievements were released some week ago, so it might be up for a release in the upcoming weeks.
Update: The game was just announced as this week's XBLA title, with a price tag of 800p. Wednesday release as usual.

Zuma challenger?

I have no idea how this game is going to be played. I still want it. Graphics look pretty sweet and I'm a sucker for puzzle games.

Well look at that- the achievements are actually achieveable. PopCap should be placed on notice.

This is a must-have for me.

This game was what inspired the creators of Zuma

Instead of a rotating frog in the middle u have a paddle in the bottom of the screen that u can move left or right and shoot coloured balls with.. when u shoot a ball off the same colour to a chain of the same colour the balls dissapear (just like Zuma)

I still think this game is way better than Zuma is...

Just played it from MSN.com and yes is exactly like FireWire says , is exactly like Zuma , the only difference is that there's no frog.

Still fun game. there's also a visual upgrade on Vista.

what the f*** ??!?

well, here we go again - NO Catan this week . . . ...

I wonder why they let us wait this long for a title, that was supposed to be released until the end of March?

I imagine it'll gain the same audience as Zuma despite being identical in many ways. I'll give it a look as puzzle games go down well in my house.

One condition though. If there's a sharpshooter achievement I may have a tantrum.

You sure about that? Zuma is pretty damn simular to Magnetica, I've always assumed that PopCap pretty much stole that game and reskinned it. They're pretty shameless.

Makes me want Luxor 2--because I like Zuma--but it always sorta bothered me that they're so shameless about making these clones. It was okay back in the early 80's, but I sorta expect some degree of originality out of people in this day and age.

That's true but i was a fan of Luxor on the PC before Zuma and i still think Luxor is a WAY better game.....

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker The way the developer implemented sensitive subjects like racism in Deus Ex MD is damn well done. (5 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The BF1 interface is literally the same thing. The only difference is you load a huge client to reach the UI instead of clicking on a bookmark. Guess which one is faster? (18 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And the like.. primary complaint that people had about Battlelog on PC was the plugin. It doesn't use a plugin anymore. (18 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like being able to take stock of my favorites in a manner of seconds. And I don't need to load the client until I find a game I want to play. (18 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea, really. It's much faster than loading a beast of a client just to look at a server browser or join a queue. Why would I want to waste time and resources before I actually need to *play*? (18 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Really? I was never a fan of launching the game through a web browser. The stats and everything else i was okay with. (18 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Why do I want to load a huge game client just to check my favorites? Just to wait in queue? It doesn't make sense. (18 Hours ago)
