MumboJumbo, leading developer and publisher of casual games, has unveiled LUXOR: Quest for the Afterlifeâ„¢ for the PC. This is the fourth installment in the popular marble-shooter franchise, which launched in 2005 and received recognition as the "casual game of the year." The game, which is available now at www.mumbojumbo.com, will retail for $19.99 at retailers and leading game portals beginning Nov. 11.
LUXOR: Quest for the Afterlife features 100 levels and a brand new battle mode for fans of the action-puzzle game to enjoy. For the first time in the franchise, players will venture out of Egypt to unravel the shroud of mystery surrounding the great Queen Nefertiti and track the thieves who have stolen one of her sacred artifacts along the Silk Road.
"In Quest for the Afterlife, we've taken LUXOR to a whole new level," said Mark Cottam, CEO of MumboJumbo. "For the first time, players will get to choose their own paths and leave Egypt. Fans of LUXOR will find that we've really enhanced the entire experience-there are brilliantly rendered backgrounds, new game modes and a really incredible story that unfolds in the game."
In LUXOR: Quest for the Afterlife, players wield a mystical scarab shooter to propel marbles and make color matches of three or more to try and 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 Queen Nefertiti.
This is the much-anticipated follow-up to LUXOR 3, a game that was downloaded more than 2.5 million times when it was launched last year and still ranks among the top marble shooter games at popular online game portals. LUXOR: Quest for the Afterlife is rated E for Everyone with a descriptor for Violent References.
