Dallas, TX- Oct 10, 2006 With over 500,000 units sold since its launch in 2005, the LUXOR franchise is one of the most successful brands ever in casual gaming. And now, MumboJumbo is pleased to announce the launch of LUXOR 2, the much anticipated sequel to the #1 casual game of 2005.
Designed in MumboJumbo's Dallas studios by the same award-winning team that created the original hit, LUXOR; LUXOR 2 sets a new benchmark graphically for casual games with 3D-like visuals, realistic reflections and shadowing, and stunning visual details throughout the game.
Paul Jensen, President of MumboJumbo says, "LUXOR 2 offers the same addictive and easy-to-learn, yet difficult-to-master game play which made the award- winning LUXOR franchise such a smash hit, but now takes the game to a completely new level, setting a new standard for action-puzzle casual games."
LUXOR 2 will be available exclusively on www.MumboJumbo.com and all key download sites starting Tuesday, October 10th, 2006. The original LUXOR was first made available in March 2005 to the download market. Since its introduction, the game has been successfully introduced into the PC retail market, mobile phone market, handheld PDAs, and soon to be released to the console market.
