The old Phonesaber app is getting an overhaul!
Everyone loved the lightsaber app for iPhone called PhoneSaber, developed by a couple Scottish guys. Even THQ Wireless, who own the rights to Star Wars IP for mobile liked it. Even though it infringed on the licensing deal they had with LucasArts, they were cool enough to work with the guys on making a new version that’s legal, rather than shut them down entirely. The new version is called LightSaber Unleashed. I got a chance to play LightSaber Unleashed and although I wasn’t allowed to take pics or video, I’ve still got some insider info.
The latest app has got a bunch of upgrades including:
- Better graphics
- Original movie sounds
- Character specific lightsabers
- Around 5 characters to choose from
And for the coolest update of them all…
A battle theme from the movie to wield your lightsaber to!
There’s also a hidden gem in the game which I won’t spoil. Once the game is released, it will be difficult to find and will require some adventuring through the game. Even though this post is filled with spoilers, I can’t bring myself to ruin that part.
