Asphalt 8: Airborne for Android – Gameloft Scores Again
by May 04, 2021
It appears that gaming developer Gameloft has done it again with its latest creation in its popular Asphalt video gaming racing series: Asphalt 8: Airborne for Android was released in August 2013, and already it has been downloaded a total of 445, 316 times, with 21,737 downloads occurring just within the last month or so. This exciting game is, best of all, free to download, and obviously gamers are taking advantage of this fact.
Asphalt 8 for Android had retained many similarities to its arcade style predecessors Asphalt 7 and, prior, Asphalt 6 including four control options, the rating system for races as well as the choice between primary and secondary objectives. However, there are some new and interesting features that will appeal to gamers. For instance, 80% of the fleet has been updated with new cars, and the snazzier models can be unlocked as you race your way to the finish line. These new additions total 47 in number. They are all high performance cars from top licensed manufacturers like Cadillac, Ferrari and Bugatti and the player can customize their paint jobs.
In contrast to the previous releases, Asphalt 8’s game play focuses a lot on jumping as the tracks feature many more ramps than before. Here is the reason for the name of the game. As rewards for your jumps, you get nitro boosts, and the longer you remain airborne, the more boost you receive. The tracks are also randomly scattered with springboards which facilitate spectacular flights and high speed stunts.
Modes of play
There are three modes of game play. The complex career mode spans eight racing seasons with 180 events. As the player progresses through each season, the difficulty level increases. Subsequent seasons have to be unlocked by winning as specified number of point, or buying an “unlock” in the in-app store. Quick Race mode consists six solo race categories, and thirdly, and perhaps most appealing, is the multiplayer mode where games can compete via WiFi or the internet.
Also included in the latest release of Asphalt are nine new locations – Tokyo, Venice, Barcelona, London, French Guyana, the Nevada Desert, Iceland, Monaco and the Alps, creating different interesting landscapes for your ventures. What is more, users are enthralled by the stunning visual effects created by next-gen shaders and other astonishing graphics which, all combined, make for a realistic experience that is out of this world. Asphalt 8 is the first in the series to have its own licensed soundtrack and other music.
What People Say
Critics have positively received Asphalt 8 for Android. Major gaming expert companies have rated the game between 7.8 and 10 out of 10; with such high scores attributed mostly to the graphics and sound, as well the unique inclusion of the ramps and stunts.
