A few weeks after a teaser video of a new Star Wars game popped up, showing how you can take control of the Millennium Falcon’s guns and shoot up Imperial forces,the game is now available for purchase for $4.99.

Normally that wouldn’t catch my attention. There are tens of thousands of games in the app store. What makes Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Runner different is the augmented reality mode that lets you blast TIE fighters against any backdrop, using your phone’s camera.

You can check out the game in action after the break. Just beware, it’s not going to look nearly as cool while you’re playing on the toilet.

    I can officially confirm that my tablet PC is at least rugged enough to withstand unexpected coffee spit takes. Everything wiped away nicely, but you’ve ruined my reputation at the coffee house. Very funny line.
