Well it’s about as bad a time as any for a young Pharoah to kick off (kinda odd the second PSP rendition of the series was called “Pharoah’s Challenge” when an actual Pharoah wouldn’t actually be in the game until 3) with his

Once again to do the task set before you apparently you must shoot down rolling spheres set by Set to invade a pyramid or two (pushed relentlessly by his little scarab minions who self destruct the minute the last of the spheres is smashed… hmm… oh but the Scarabs do more this time as there are a nice host of mini games this time out including a sky rolling scene where you shoot down Scarabs for bonus points). Once again we’re back with another most addictive puzzler/shooter combo (upgraded with a new Shop option for you to buy not only the much useful upgrades, though that is an effort since there are much more purchases you have to make on all upgrades to make them useful, and they still don’t reach the high level of upgrade as the original, as well as the ability

Can’t get much more addictive than this. The match 3 and up gameplay of Bejeweled or Puzzle Quest, a uniquely original way to do it (rolling spheres set along a pre destined path… with a twist in some bonus levels featuring free roaming scarab/ball sets, mostly in a sky mode and a level where you shoot them as they come down Centipede style along a board with pots which change the scarab’s course along the way making their paths longer or shorter depending on the obstacles before them.

Level maps are once again beautifully done (fresh new maps as opposed the ones we’ve seen

Besides the nice solid gameplay (each board offers up unique challenges in sphere paths, now more varied and with splitting paths making you plan even harder how best to use your power ups to your advantage) the game also features a set of bonus rounds with multiple objectives (half the fun is seeing all the varied bonus games yourself, one specific one only unlockable if you shoot down four Egyptian God specific urns turning the specific level set you’re in).
This game, and it’s other companion piece, are great additions to puzzler gaming on the PC, PSP, DS and so on, and should be on your short list for pickup off any good stocked bargain bin ASAP (though this is a download off of Gateway Games and not on shelves… yet). So, with that all said, we’re giving Luxor 3 a nice solid high five store upgrades out of 5 (aka the Gold Standard). Very nicely done. Bravo!

It’s a quirky concept slathered on top of a solidly done gameplay with more than enough innovative board puzzles...
