PhoneSaber returns to the App Store as Lightsaber Unleashed

After disappearing off the app store for just over a month following an amicable take down request by THQ Wireless/LucasArts, the iPhone lightsaber simulator PhoneSaber has returned. Its got a new name and a new look, but all of the accelerometer based lightsaber swinging good times remain.

Rather than being lame and just yanking the idea for themselves, THQ Wireless brought the original Phonesaber developer on board to retool the app as a promotion for The Force Unleashed. The simulator has been redubbed Lightsaber Unleashed, with “dueling music” and characters/dialogue from Force now included.

Get it for free in the App Store. Make sure to hold on tight; smashing your iPhone against the wall will bring the Jedi battles to an end pretty quickly.
