If you can’t wait for the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens you can get your Jedi on and take on some Stormtroopers now.

Google Chrome has unveiled a new game that turns your smartphone into a lightsaber so you can battle the Dark Side. It links your phone to a desktop or laptop, allowing you to wield the power of a lightsaber.

On your computer, visit https://lightsaber.withgoogle.com and follow the instructions. You’ll be asked to go to another website on your smartphone – which will allow the calibration process of your phone to begin.

You’ll get a little practice in fending off a Stormtrooper trying to attack you with a blaster, but then you’ll move on to the real game.

Good luck young Jedi!
