Fans of Bruno Mars can now play along with the Grammy award winner in a new rhythm-based iPhone and iPod game.

“Bruno Mars Revenge,” released Monday from Tapulous (now part of Disney Mobile), is inspired by the tracks and artwork from his platinum debut album “Doo-Wops & Hooligans.”

The app challenges users to tap along to 10 tracks from the album, including “Grenade,” “Just the Way You Are,” “The Lazy Song” and “Marry You.”

Like the other games in the bestselling “Tap Tap Revenge” series, the goal is to tap each of the colored balls when they reach a line at the bottom of the screen. Points are accumulated by speed and accuracy.

Mars’ app also features lyrics to his tracks, a downloadable photo gallery, biography, Twitter feed and chat rooms.

The singer joins chart-toppers such as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Justin Bieber, who all have had a “Tap Tap Revenge” game branded with their likeness.

“Bruno Mars Revenge” is available for $4.99 in the app store.
