Luxor: Wrath of Set Review
Luxor: Wrath of Set is one of those puzzle games that is going to take a lot longer to explain than it would to learn the game just by picking it up, but I can hardly tell you to go out and buy the game so that you can see what it’s like so here goes…
|Here come the marbles.|
The challenge in the game comes when the marble strings grow longer and move faster. Since the groove snakes around the board, it is entirely possible that the spot you’d like to place your next marble is blocked by the other end of the string. Also, as the marbles move faster it becomes more challenging to shoot the marbles into the correct spot and you may end up making your task more difficult for yourself. In addition to these physical challenges there is the intellectual one of working to set up long chain reaction combos. Careful placement of your marbles can lead you to the point where you can wipeout huge chunks of the string with a single shot.
Luxor is an enjoyable enough puzzle game that is well-suited to short gaming sessions while on the go. If you’ve never really been into this sort of game before, though, there is nothing in Luxor that will change your mind. You pretty much get a series of puzzles at three difficulty levels which is just fine for puzzle fans but is not enough to engage other gamers.
In The End, This Game Hath Been Rated: 72%. Puzzle fans will enjoy Luxor but its lack of variety limits its appeal to other gamers.
