Are you getting ready for the release of Star Wars Episode I The Phantom Menace 3D in theaters starting on February 10th? Who are you going with? Are you going in costume or just your favorite Star Wars t-shirt? I am super excited! To be perfectly honest with you, Episode I is not my favorite movie of the 6 movies, The Empire Strikes Back would take that title. However, what I am so excited about is that I get to enjoy this movie with my nieces and nephews who will be seeing this movie in a movie theatre for the first time. I had the opportunity to watch all of the prequels in the movie theatre when they were originally released, but my nieces and nephews were too young or not even born yet. To introduce a new generation to their first Star Wars movie theatre experience will be a really special moment for me.
As I gear up for the release I found something new to do with my time. For those of you who don’t know, I travel A LOT. To help me with my business and travel, my husband got me an iPad for my birthday last year and I am constantly using it on the road or the long plane flights. Well, my husband and I had to travel this weekend and we found a new Star Wars game for my iPad called Star Wars Brisksaber. Let me tell you what, it’s so much fun and addicting! It made our plane flights go by so much faster! This game is FREE and is available to download for your Apple or Android products by going to the iTunes store or The Android Market. The game is simple, once you’ve downloaded the game, press play and it will give you a choice between the Light Side or The Dark Side (I prefer the Light Side). Then you choose whether you want to play under a timed trial or fight for your survival. Finally, choose your lightsaber (I prefer Qui-Gon Jinn’s because it’s green like Ahsoka’s) and then tap Play. You will see your chosen lightsaber center screen and you control the lightsaber by touching the screen with your finger and Here’s where the fun begins! You have to use the lightsaber to slice in half all of the enemy objects and characters that fly onto the screen. It’s SO much fun to cut Darth Sidious or Darth Maul in two! Be careful though because your friends will fly onto the screen and you do not want to slice R2-D2 in half! I accidentally killed many R2-D2′s and not only did it make me sad, but it’ll end your game quickly. As I mentioned before, all of this is for FREE, however, look for certain Brisk drinks with the special Star Wars labeling and under each cap will be special codes to unlock new gear like new lightsabers, characters and ships.
You can also post your scores to your Facebook or Twitter pages and share your scores with your friends. Of course, my husband currently holds the high score between the two of us! This is a simple and somewhat mindless game that kept us going for three hours straight, and we only stopped because the stewardess told us we had to power down our electrical equipment for our decent. I also introduced this game to my nephew, David. He is a HUGE Star Wars fan and he really enjoys this game too. Next to Dave Filoni, my nephew David knows more about Star Wars than anyone else I know. He is very smart and I am very proud of him. He very quickly surpassed my high score within minutes of playing the game for the first time. I asked David to do a video with me and give a demonstration of the game. See the video below.
Just a reminder that Star Wars Episode I The Phantom Menace 3D comes out in theaters on February 10th! I hope you get to share Star Wars and this movie theatre experience with someone new, like I do with my nieces and nephews! I also hope you will check out this new Star Wars Brisksaber game! It’s so addicting and so much fun!
