MumboJumbo, a developer and publisher of critically acclaimed casual games, and Plus+, a publisher of iPhone and iPod touch games, are proud to announce LUXOR is now available on the App Store.
In LUXOR, players will face off against the god’s evil minions threatening to ruin the mystical lands of Ancient Egypt. Players must clear chains by color-matching three or more spheres.

The fate of Ancient Egypt is literally in the player’s hands. The game also includes community features enabled by Plus+, the free social play network.
