Welcome to the Android Forums!

Do you have a lot of apps/widgets loaded on your phone? Do you leave WiFi or GPS running all of the time? Lots of running apps can cause the phone to heat up. If, however, the phone isn't doing anything but getting really hot then I think it prudent to believe that the phone hardware is having issues.

At that point you could try a different battery to see if the battery is causing you issues. Otherwise, I agree with Steven... call tech support!

Did it get hot as you described before the 1 game was installed? Maybe that one game is poorly coded and is having issues on your phone.

If the phone did the same thing before you installed the 1 app then it's highly likely that your phone hardware is having problems... I'd suggest calling Tech Support to see if they will replace the phone. Did you buy it new from the carrier? How long ago?
