Google Star Wars Lightsaber Game

Are you sitting by your computer? And do you have your smartphone handy? If so, then you’re ready to play the crazy new Star Wars Lightsaber game that Google just unveiled.

Let’s go over what you need to do to play this game.

First, in your desktop browser, go to the official Google Lightsaber game page at this link. The website will then give you a personalized link to enter into the browser of your mobile phone. Once you open this link in your smartphone, the website will ask you to configure the phone by holding it vertically. Once it’s configured, it will accurately respond to your motions much like a Wii controller.

From there, the game will put you on a Star Destroyer that you’ll have to escape using your lightsaber. Click on the button on your smartphone screen to turn on the lightsaber, which will then light up on the monitor of your laptop or desktop computer. It will then send you down a corridor and have you use your lightsaber to fend off imperial storm troopers with laser pistols. Thankfully the storm troopers in the game are about as effective at shooting as storm troopers in the movies, so defeating them isn’t all that difficult.

You know you want to play it. Go check it out here.
