Dhoom:3 The Game, a fantastic, fast paced Windows Phone 8 game

If you're in the market for a fast paced game for your Windows Phone 8 device, take a look at Dhoom:3 The Game. It is the official game for the upcoming action/adventure movie Dhoom:3 that is due out in theaters later this year.

In a nutshell, Dhoom:3 The Game is an endless runner game played on a motorcycle. You run the streets of Chicago, staying one step ahead of the cops and avoiding hazards such as light posts, traffic and walls. You collect coins along the way that can be used to buy new bikes, new racing suits, and power-ups.  The further you travel, the higher your score.

Launching the game presents you with a "3,2,1" countdown and from there you use your Windows Phone tilt controls to guide your bike through the streets. You can opt for on-screen controls to steer your bike but the tilt controls are really nice.

On-screen controls are present in the bottom and upper corners to give you access to boosts, shields and other items. They are nicely placed so the main screen isn't cluttered and you can enjoy the 3D graphics as you zip down the road.

If you want to get a jump on the competition and unlock the extra bikes, bonuses and suits you can buy coins through in-app purchase.

Dhoom:3 makes a really great first impression and in playing the game for the past half hour, it's hard to put down. Graphic have a bit of pop, game play challenging and best of all, Dhoom:3 is free!

Dhoom:3 The Game is available for Windows Phone 8 devices and you can pick it up here in the Windows Phone Store.  Oh... if you're curious, here's the movie trailer for Dhoom:3 The Movie (which doesn't look too shabby either).

Thanks, Mohammed, for the tip!
