Turn Your Phone Into A Lightsaber Thanks To Google

With just hours until the UK release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it’s safe to say that pretty much everyone has jumped on the Star Wars promotional bandwagon in some form or another.

The latest to join the party are those very clever people over at Google, who have create a new interactive Star Wars game that lets you use your phone as a Lightsaber.

Lightsaber Escape puts you into the shoes of a Jedi, wandering a hostile ship tasked with fighting off hordes of stormtroopers. Where this differs from many of Google’s other browser-based creations is that it allows you to pair up a computer with your phone and use your phone as the controller.

To play simply tap the unique code generated by one device into the other and it will pair the two, enabling your phone to act as a motion-sensing lightsaber to control the first-person action on the browser screen.

This should keep you busy between now and midnight….

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is released in the UK on Thursday, December 17 and in the UK on December 18.
