Before you head out to the cinemas to catch Star Wars: The Force Awakens, put your Jedi skills to the test with this mind-blowing game.
Google sure knows how to flex its muscles, with this new gaming experience created in conjunction with Disney, LucasFilm and Industrial Light & Magic. Called “Lightsaber Escape”, the web-based game lets you wield your smartphone as if it were a lightsaber, and projects your hand gestures as actual movements on your computer screen.
All that’s needed is a computer, a smartphone and a solid Internet connection. Using your desktop, head to this website using any web browser, where you’ll be prompted to key in the unique URL onto your phone.
Just follow the on-screen instructions to calibrate your device, and it won’t be long before you deflect lasers from Stormtroopers. We recommend going through training mode, like any Padawan would, just to get the hang of how it feels first.
From there on out, expect plenty of action and surprises in the actual game itself. What a way to pass the time till you indulge in the long-awaited Star Wars: The Force Awakens!
