Luxor (/ˈlʌk.sɔːr/ or /ˈlʊk.sɔːr/;Arabic:الأقصرal-Uqṣur; Egyptian Arabic: Loʔṣor IPA:[ˈloʔsˤoɾ]; Sa'idi Arabic: Logṣor[ˈloɡsˤor], Coptic: ⲛⲏ) is a city in Upper (southern) Egypt and the capital of Luxor Governorate. The population numbers 487,896 (2010 estimate), with an area of approximately 416 square kilometres (161sqmi). As the site of the Ancient Egyptian city of Thebes, Luxor has frequently been characterized as the "world's greatest open-air museum", as the ruins of the temple complexes at Karnak and Luxor stand within the modern city. Immediately opposite, across the River Nile, lie the monuments, temples and tombs of the West Bank Necropolis, which includes the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens. Thousands of tourists from all around the world arrive annually to visit these monuments, contributing greatly to the economy of the modern city.
The name Luxor comes from the Arabic al-quṣūr (القصور), lit. "the palaces," from the pl. of qaṣr (قصر), which is a loanword from the Latincastrum "fortified camp". (Compare Alcázar of Seville)
Luxor’s gameplay is similar to the games Marble Lines, Puzz Loop, and Zuma, in that it challenges the user to eliminate colored magical spheres by causing three or more spheres of the same color to collide. Players do this primarily by shooting additional spheres from a falcon which they guide back and forth along the bottom of the screen. When spheres are eliminated, nearby spheres which now form a segment of three or more of the same color will also explode in a chain reaction.
During gameplay, the on-screen spheres continuously move forward, pushed themselves by additional small scarabs. If any sphere reaches the player's pyramid, he or she loses a life and is forced to restart the level. If the player succeeds in eliminating a certain number of spheres without this occurring, new spheres cease to arrive and the level can be completed by removing those which remain.
Luxor is an open-source XML UI Language (XUL) toolkit in Java that lets you build desktop apps using markup (XML) and scripting. Luxor also includes a web server, a portal engine (supporting RSS), a template engine (Velocity) and more.
Luxor implementation is independent of the Mozilla codebase, though they implement largely the same specification of XUL.
