Lucasfilm Ltd. has released their official Lightsaber Unleashed application in the App Store. We quickly downloaded it and dove in to what has become a very fun and interesting application. When you open the application you are taken to what looks like an ad for another StarWars game.
After selecting Lightsaber you are taken to a screen that allows you to either select one of 5 characters or create your own. The selectable characters include Darth Vader, Rahm Kota, Maris Brood, The Apprentice and Shaak Ti. You can view a full screen picture of there character as well as read a bio about them. The color of their Lightsaber is displayed as a shadow to their picture.
Creating a custom character is more detailed than we had imagined. You select their Name, Character Picture, Custom Lightsaber and Even write a Bio for them. Lightsaber customization is very easy, just choose one of 5 handles and then scroll the colors until you have get the desired shade.
Now its time for the fun part, the actual use of the Lightsaber. After selecting you character you come to a screen than allows you to swing the Lightsaber and hear authentic sounds. As if that was not enough you can set StarWars music to play in the background as you wield your Lightsaber. When you eventually get bored of this mode you can tap the Lightsaber icon to get a full screen light saber that even flashes upon impact.
This application really has it all, it is entertaining and very customizable. Its clear that developers did not just throw this together one night. They invested time into this application to make it the best Lightsaber application there is for the iPhone. You can download Lightsaber Unleashed for free right now in the App Store for iPhone and iPod Touch.
