Have you ever dreamed about being a Jedi Master? Of course you have. Who hasn't?

From the first moment you watched Luke Skywalker take on Darth Vader, you've probably wished for your very own lightsaber. And now you can have one. You just need a computer and a smartphone.

As the latest installment of Google's ongoing Star Wars promotions, a new game called "Lightsaber Escape" has just been released. The game features a scenario where you fight off Stormtroopers for as long as you can. To play, you just need to visit this website, then follow the instructions to download the software and calibrate your cellphone.

Once you've got your cellphone set up, gameplay is simple. Hold your phone vertically with two hands, click "Initiate," then move your "lightsaber" around to fight off the bad guys. Begin the game and Stormtroopers will come at you from all sides, which gives you plenty of opportunities to show off your Jedi skills.

The first time you play, you'll be walked through quick tutorial that explains gameplay features. But, when you're done playing, your phone will lose its lightsaber capabilities until you boot the game up again.

Lightsaber Escape was designed to be played in Google Chrome as part of Google's promotion of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." Click here to see a fun way to get your Star Wars-related Google search results, and here for the Google Chrome extension that gives you Star Wars-themed screen skins.
