I'm I missing something, or is there no option to quit to the main menu from within the game?

The reviews seem to indicate that there's some in-game lag when scrolling across larger maps. I think I'll pass up on this until it becomes patched and more affordable.

indeed.. totally lame! barely playable.. I can't believe this. I bought DLX, but I'm playing the free version again. Far too sluggish, no exit to main menu option, no online mutliplayer, sometimes I can't select an army. Bugfest. This shouldn't have been released in it's current state, the company should be ashamed.

Lux DLX Released!

Just saw that Lux DLX is now out for the iPhone and iPod Touch!


I am downloading it now so i have not played it yet.

There are 40+ reviews up and some people say that it is slow...

I have an iPod Touch 2G and will give it a go.

So happy, I love the desktop version of Lux!


here is my first thoughts of the game.

Played the game for a few minutes-

It comes with 4 maps built in

-Classic (world)
-Roman Empire: The Punic Wars
-USA War zone
-Castle Lux

You can download more maps but I don't have wifi where I am.

You can play with up to 6 players

There is
-Human player
-Easy AI
-Medium AI
-Hard AI
-Random AI

Options allow you to

-Turn sound effects on and off
-Change the AI speed
-Change how the map starts (how armies are placed and countries are chosen)
-The card sequene (how much cards are worth ie-4, then 6, then 8 etc)
-Continent Bonus (how much each continent gives goes up as the rounds progress)

This like Risk in most every way. Most things in the free version were kept in this version. (You hold down to move more armies etc.) There is also a save feature.You can also zoom in and out, which is nice.

There are some problems with this game though. It is laggy (even on my ipod touch 2G). It not unplayable but the sound is off with the screen and stuff like that. There doesn't seem to be anyway to get back to the menu apart from leaving the app, coming back and choosing to set up a new game. I also had a problem with the accelorameter. I was playing a map in landscape mode and the information was being shown in normal (upright) mode.

Good game but until some issues are fixed I don't think i can justify the full 8 dollars though.

16gb iPod Touch 2G Plus+ ID- ZZMitch
Last Bought- Pirate Bay, ARKANOID, GeoDefense Swarm, ORBITAL, Word Ace.
Waiting for-GTA:CW, Plants Vs. Zombies, Assassin's Creed II, Riddim Ribbon and Nova.

I'm surprised it took people awhile to realize this... or make a thread about it unless I missed it earlier. I must say though I might wait for a price drop... I usually don't but I think I'll wait on this one..
