Star Wars: Lightsaber Duel iPhone app Review

lightsaberduelHave you ever wished that you had a lightsaber of your own to that you could use to slice items in half?  Well with the Star Wars: Lightsaber Duel iPhone app now you can!  This little app allows you to pick  out of 11 of the most recognized Star Wars characters and control them and their lightsaber in a battle to the death!   You can use this character to fight any of your friends and hear the ferocious blast of the lightsaber with each swish of your hand.  You start up the lightsaber with a tap of your finger and can extinguish it the same way.

If you do have a friend that also loves star wars then you can sync up your phones so that they will react to each other.  You do this through the amazing technology that Bluetooth connectivity offers.  You can strike, parry, block, and attack each other with all of the original and unique lightsaber sounds.  One of the nice things about the app is that you can actually listen to any song from your iTunes while you play with the app or you can just listen to the original Star Wars theme that is included as the default soundtrack.  Have fun customizing your characters and building them up just the way that you like them.  There is also a special force power that can be mastered as you encounter emperor Palpatine in the Single Player mode.


  • This is a great little iPhone app that lets you wield a lightsaber just like the Jedi from the movie franchise
  • There are a few different modes that you can take part in, including a two player mode that utilizes the Bluetooth technology.  This two player duel mode only works with the 3G and 3GS models and can be a great way to participate with other
  • In this game you can pick over eleven different people and the graphics have also been greatly enhanced to give you a more realistic and enjoyable experience as you play with the app
  • You can also use the force lighting feature with your character to help you battle your friends
  • When you are picking a character you also have the option to create your own character.  You are able to customize more than one character at a time so you can add to the variety of playable people in the game
  • Lastly, you can either listen to the clashing sounds of two lightsabers hitting together or you can listen to your own iTunes music in the background as you paly


This is a very simple app but it will appeal to any Star Wars lover out  there.  You are able to pick from a variety of different Star Wars characters and mimic their classic duels from the movies.  A very entertaining app and it is also very inexpensive.

Voted 3 1/2 stars by iPhone app users and currently costs $0.99 to download.
