With the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens just around the corner and the ensuing hype reaching fever pitch, Google has released a Star Wars-inspired browser game that can turn a mobile phone into a lightsaber with just a tap on the screen.
Popularly known as the Chrome project or Chrome experiment across various tech-news sites, Google's browser game offers the privilege of enabling movie fans to wave their smartphones around as if they are wielding a Lightsaber to block the barrage of bullets being fired by invading Stormtroopers.
As Android Police reports, the lightsaber can fend off typically and hopelessly inaccurate fire of Stormtroopers to escape an imperial Star Destroyer. The game is aptly titled Star Wars Lightsaber Escape and can be installed via Google's Chrome browser on desktop by copying the special URL to an iPhone or any Android device.
It is ascertained that the special URL actually enables the two devices to sync and later the target device needs to be calibrated, before starting the Star Wars game. Folks at Redmond Pie have even confirmed the virtual lightsaber can deliver universally recognised sounds of the actual weapon in the movie by just pushing the sound up on the smartphone.
If you are still sceptical, download the game using the special URL on Google's official website.
