Gameloft has a wide range of games for everyone, but Asphalt just easily ticks the box for gamers looking to have fun with the wheel.
Having recently released the latest sequel to the best racing game: Asphalt 9: Legends, we want to take a look at the previous versions of the game.
This article looks at the best 5 Asphalt games on the Android and iOS platforms.
Asphalt 8: Airborne
The Asphalt Airborne may just be the most popular game of the Asphalt series. Released for iOS and Android August 22, 2013, the game couldn’t quite find a successor until five years later.
The game comes with several options of playing via ‘tilt and icons’, ‘on-screen control,’ and ‘tap to steer’. Also, it comes with a career mode that consists 180 events split into 8 seasons. Each season becomes difficult as the gamer progresses.
Airborne came licensed with forty-seven cars. As more updates were introduced to the game, more features were added which made the game more difficult and more interesting.
Following the April 2015 update, Airborne became available on Apple Watch and subsequently added support for Apple TV. The game garnered more than 100 million downloads on both Android and iOS.
Asphalt Nitro is an intense racing game on Android and iOS platforms that offers users polished graphics and a unique physics engine.
The game comes with luxury licensed cars in the most exquisite environments.
In Nitro, you can pull off the craziest stunts while still finishing above your opponents.
Asphalt Nitro has many hidden shortcuts that you have to discover in-game. These shortcuts, sometimes, are the difference between winners and losers. And, it makes the game even more fun.
Asphalt 9: Legends
Having started in 2004, the Asphalt 9: Legends is the latest version of the racing game. The display seen on Legends is something to be glad about.
New controls, array of stunning cars, great visuals, and incredible graphical effects are some of the things you will love about the ninth edition of the game.
Unlike other versions of the game, the Asphalt 9 uses TouchDrive as the default control of the game.
In this sense, the gamer has little control over the car. The car accelerates, turns, and brakes all on its own. A gamer can only choose which path to go as there are several paths as well as drift and nitro.
The bad thing for unskilled racers is the lack of a restart option. So, once you start there is no going back. For the pros, the feature is awesome, though.
Asphalt Street Storm Racing
Asphalt Street Storm Racing is available on iOS and Android. The game is somewhat different from other series of the Asphalt franchise. The game is impacted by weather, and your performance becomes affected.
The rain, heat, and blizzards all affect the performance of your car.
There is one thing about Street Storm Racing, though. You have to be online to play the game. No data connection means no gaming experience.
The game comes with well detailed backgrounds that every racer would love.
Asphalt Xtreme: Rally Racing
The French video game developer, Gameloft, published a spinoff of the Asphalt series and is made available on both Android and iOS platforms.
Asphalt Xtreme has seven categories of off-road automobiles. These include rally cars, trucks, and sports utility vehicles (SUV).
The game has rugged tracks where users can drive. There are as many as thirty-five versions of real cars in the game. These cars are from world class manufacturers the likes of Jeep, Mercedes, Ford, Dodge, and Chevrolet.
The game has several locations including the dunes of the Nile Valley.
