    To be honest, I originally wasn't all that impressed with the retro-arcade style graphics and felt like it may have been a cop-out to speed up development or something, but as soon as I had my first screen filling event that never dropped a frame I became a fan. Another area that deserves some praise is the techno-infused audio collection that presents itself as a set of static tracks, but definitely has the ability to change speed and overall tone with the current intensity of gameplay.

    Luxor Evolved HD is not a huge leap from the ordinary Luxor game, but it is definitely one of the best versions of the orb matching formula.

    Luxor Evolved isn't a full reimagining, but it's different enough to feel exciting again, and it's hooked me thoroughly.

    What we liked most of all about Luxor Evolved HD is that it takes the core mechanics of an existing subset of the match-three genre, and makes the gameplay a thing of joy that's entirely its own. The previous games in the series may have had their roots in tradition, but Evolved breaks free and charts its own new ground.

    So, while this isn't a bad game, and I appreciate the work that went into the iOS version – the controls are a great fit for touchscreens, and hey, it's a universal app – it still feels like I've played this game before. Even if I really haven't.

    Luxor Evolved is one of the best retro shooters on iTunes. The touch controls are very effective and I really enjoyed the crazy psychedelic music. Beware, it's addictive. Collapse
