Ratings and Reviews
The few new features are nice, but the execution of the game is deplorable. The graphics should be higher resolution—in this day and age, most Macs have quite powerful GPU's; there's no reason not to have higher quality graphics. The graphics don't display properly on certain machines. For instance, I have a late-2008 iMac at home, and the text shadows are incorrect; e.g., the number of coins collected shows with "9999" as its shadow. Finally overall performance is deplorable. The shooter jitters or completely freezes up. I tried the previous version of Luxor, and everything worked smoothly. What happened, MumboJumbo?
My advice is to wait until an update is released, but I wouldn't hold my breath: this version is copyright 2010. We're way due for an update.
I bought it anyway
After reading all the reviews I wasn't sure if I wanted this game, but the price was right. I haven't experienced any problems with the game and I am sorry for those who have. The first Luxor game I got was Quest for the Afterlife and I have played it a lot, so when I saw the others on sale I got Luxor HD and 5th passage. 5th passage does resemble HD a little but I like the the unexepected shooters and the challenge games. So far I have been on the easy level, but I tried the others just to see if they worked without crashing or something. No problems that I found. I especially like the noises each games make it adds to the fun.
Unresponsive and jaggy
This game has a really neat mechanic, and would be great if it responded to mouse clicks all of the time. That said, it's a total blast from the past: it feels like a King's Quest game, with low-res, aliased graphics in a lot the UI, and laggy/unresponsive mouse interface. It even takes over the full screen at what feels like 800x600. I hope a new version is out soon that corrects this, because it would be really fun without the glaring problems. (On a 13" 2011 MBA, if that helps with troubleshooting)
