In Luxor (TM) Quest, players wield a mystical scarab shooter to propel marbles and match 3 or more colours to try to eliminate the chain of advancing spheres. When the player matches certain spheres, power-ups and treasures drop down that the players must catch with the shooter. Players will follow the Silk Road to chase thieves and collect artifacts along the way, which will help them solve the mystery of the Queen.

It could be an interesting twist on the zuma theme, the graphics are very nicely done and there are some clever features, like having to catch the power ups and extra value items. But it's just too clumsy. Sadly I found the touchscreen interface lacked responsiveness and resolution leaving me mashing the phone and just hoping that the little scarab would move somewhere! The keypad buttons aren't actually much better and the menus do not seem well thought out.
I have to give it 2 for a good try, but all in all it's a disappointing game.
