Dhoom:3 The Game was launched last year around the time of Dhoom:3 release, the third movie in the popular Bollywood franchise. The endless runner game involved a thrilling high speed bike race through the streets of Chicago where the movie was set.
The Game became quite popular, and crossed the 1 million downloads mark on the Windows Phone Store in quick time becoming the first app/game from India to do so. The game saw over 12 million downloads worldwide across platforms. 99games, the publisher of the game, and Yash Raj Films, the producer of the movie, have got together again to bring a sequel to the blockbuster game – Dhoom:3 Jet Speed.
Borrowing a scene from the movie, where the anti-hero is chased by two cops in a Chicago river on Aqua jets, the second game in the series is an endless runner as well as a racing game. Of course, you need to watch out for traffic and obstacles that litter the river and use Power-Ups to gain an edge over your pursuers. Like the previous game, the graphics are pretty good and the simulated water and race visuals are immersive.
The game features three fast paced racing modes - Endless Mode to aim for the highest score, Challenge Mode to beat a friend, and an Escape Mode to race against the clock. It offers the option to choose between tilt or tap controls, and also configure the accelerometer sensitivity, so you can ride and control the aqua jet nicely.
You can upgrade your Aqua Jets to make them more durable and survive collisions better. Also, as you race through the game, you can see yourself rising up the leaderboards.
Download the Dhoom:3 Jet Speed game for free for Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store. The game launch is timed along with the television premier of the movie, and you can find Sony Television branding within the game. It's a fine game and with great graphics and exciting gameplay, and there's no reason you shouldn't give it a whirl. Jet, set, go… Dhoom machale!
