Luxor has been confirmed for release on the iPhone and iPod Touch thanks to a publishing deal between MomboJumbo and ngmoco's Plus Publishing arm. It was only a matter of time, really, considering Luxor's popularity with the marble-shooting and puzzle-playing set.
In Luxor, an evil god's minions have unleashed chains of colored spheres to destroy the pyramids of Ancient Egypt. Players must clear these chains by color-matching three or more spheres. Native controls allow players to slide, tap, shake and tilt to manipulate the magical winged, side-scrolling shooter and launch power-ups.
Luxor will be Plus Publishing's first release. The game's iPhone and iPod Touch versions will make use of Plus 's social networking features to send challenges to friends via Facebook and Twitter, earn Plus points, and get their names and rankings on friends and global leaderboards.
iPhone and iPod Touch owners can expect Luxor on the App Store this month.
