Luxor: 5th Passage is an Egyptian-themed marble shooting game developed by the company, MumboJumbo. It is the fifth installment of the Luxor series and involves the simple task of matching a minimum of three similarly colored marbles. In this game, the player explores a map that contains 100 stages, which are divided into various sections. In the Blast mode, the player has a couple of minutes to earn as many points as possible. This mode also features a section called People’s Choice, in which the player is allowed to re-play a variety of stages that have appeared in previous Luxor games.
To match marbles, the player must control a single colored ball to make it movevback and forth at the bottom of the screen. Luxor: 5th Passage comes with four new power-ups including the fireball, electric ball, and black hole. The black hole power-up enables the player to shoot two balls at the same time. In the event that the player has no moves left to make, s/he can click on the Eye of Horus to clear the screen. The game offers 20 achievements, which the player can earn as the game progresses. If the player is able to successfully get through a level but is not satisfied with his/her score, s/he can go back to it to improve the score.
