Google has released a Star Wars game, Lightsaber Escape, that you can play from your browser and control using your smartphone.

If you're trying to take in all things Star Wars related ahead of the release of The Force Awakens, you'll be delighted to hear that Google has released a game to whittle away to hours.

Lightsaber Escape is a browser-based game where you must fight off The First Order and make your escape. Your monitor acts as your field of view, while your smartphone acts as your lightsaber, immersing you in the experience and letting you live out your dreams of being a Jedi.

Once you load up the Lightsaber Escape website, you'll be asked to visit a link on your smartphone. You must then calibrate your device before you embark on your adventure. Make sure you increase the screen lock timeout on your phone; otherwise your display will shut off and you'll have to go through the calibration process again.and you'll have to go through the calibration process again.

Google developed Lightsaber Escape working in collaboration with Disney, Lucasfilm, and Industrial Light & Magic (ILM).
