Lux Dlx is a risk game by Sillysoft Games. $7.99
Lux Dlx is the complete version of the free game, Lux Touch. While Lux Touch only featured the classic map and one level of difficulty, Lux Dlx features over 550 downloadable maps as well as the ability to change difficulty levels of every AI to a different level if it is what you want. The amount of options in this game really spoils you for choice as a majority of the maps require alot of thought for those who have a strategy downpacked to beat the classic map on Lux Touch. A few of the maps are already included in the game but a majority have to be downloaded in game. I am disappointed with this as they have to be downloaded individually and each one takes quite a bit of time to download, which is understandable but with an upcoming update in March it says about faster speed, maybe for the downloads as well as in game.
The graphics in this game are nice and bright with good graphics to look at. The maps haven't just been made to look good on the map itself but also they include a nice scenery on the outside that fits the theme of whatever map you are currently playing. The controls are easy to use and first timers can figure out what to do without reading the rules. When selecting a place to attack with it shows with arrows which enemies can be attacked from that spot.
There is no in game music, just optional sound effects which is nothing to write home about. They are mainly just noises when adding troops or attacking. They can be turned off and your own music is allowed, which I prefer to do.
The gameplay will be familiar to anyone who has played Risk. You must destroy the enemies and take over the whole map. Controlling areas and getting so many gamecards will give you more troops to fight with. Areas are taken over by destroying all of the opponents pieces on that area, this is done easily if you have more troops on the area that you choose to attack with. Variants regarding the AI or opponents are available to play around with on every map. Up to six players are allowed to be on a map. They can be anything from one human and 5 AI to 6 humans battling against themselves. If you like head to head you are available to have human v human or human v AI. Each of the maps are generally themed on wars or areas of the real world, such as the Iraq War, but some are in fantasy lands. The larger maps take a while to load up before you can play them, but the coming update should decrease the waiting time. There are no achievements to get as this game is just to play for fun.
This game is great fun and provides alot of replay value, it is quite a challenge to win one of these maps on easy, let alone all 50! There is an update coming in March with faster speeds, more maps and an extra hard difficulty available for the AI. This is a great game to play either by yourself or for fame and glory against your fiends. Provides a challenge and is great for fans of Risk. If you aren't sure if you would like the game try Lux Touch and then make your decision.
I would recommend this game if you enjoyed- Lux Touch
