Lightsaber Escape

Hopefully when you were 12 or 13 you made peace with the fact that lightsabers are not real, and that you’ll never be able to wield one in real life. But luckily Google hasn’t given up the ghost quite yet, and now they’ve come up with Lightsaber Escape,” an experience built for Chrome” that turns users’ smartphones into lightsabers.

Lightsaber Escape is a game that follows a Jedi as he/she escapes from a stormtrooper-infested space craft armed only with a lightsaber for deflecting blaster fire. The cool thing about the game is that the lightsaber is controlled with your smartphone rather than your keyboard or mouse.

The adventure begins at Google’s Lightsaber Escape here, provided you’ve got a smartphone equipped with Chrome. Just remember not to play the game for too long at a time—lightsaber elbow is a serious affliction that’s forced many a good Jedi into an early retirement.
