Asphalt Overdrive is the newest addition to one of the most popular mobile racing games of the century! This little game is not as pompous as the previous Asphalt 8: Airborne in the sense that we’re not talking about an arcade racing game similar to Need for Speed, but a lane-based endless racer where the player is trying to run away from the police in 1980s California.
In order to play this little game you will need an Android device updated to 4.0 or higher.
Each stage you have to run from the cops and you’re given a head start; moreover, you can earn nitro speed if you complete certain tricks or kill honest motorists you find on the road. You will find real licensed cars in the game, all classics from the 1980s and earlier.
Asphalt connects the user to Facebook for the obvious social elements such as friend gangs and tournaments. The gameplay is pretty easy and all you have to do to control your car is swipe the screen countless times, which is why some mobile gamers expecting a proper racing game may be put off.
Asphalt Overdrive is a free game which means, of course, it has in-app purchases that you can’t escape. The dual-currency model is rather annoying as the in-app currency is easily depleted. The only solution is the fake money purchase made with real money, of course, but if you are determined enough and don’t mind waiting or challenging yourself, you can come out a victor.
