If you%26rsquo;ve been on Live Arcade for a while now, chances are you%26rsquo;ve played Zuma - if you don't remember, it's the one with the frog projectile-vomiting colored spheres. And if you haven%26rsquo;t%26hellip;well, you should. It%26rsquo;s one of the most engaging puzzlers on the service. And now Luxor 2 has pretty much beaten it in every way.

The goal in Luxor 2 is the same as in Zuma; fire jewels (or balls; whatever they are) from your launcher into in a twisting line of rainbow-hued balls that%26rsquo;s slowly inching its way to the goal. Get three or more in a row of the same color, and they vanish. Eliminate all the jewels before they reach the goal, and you win.
