Asphalt 8: Airborne arrives on Windows Phone and Windows

Asphalt 8: Airborne arrives on Windows Phone and Windows
Asphalt 8: Airborne, one of our favorite games of the year, has finally arrived to both Windows Phone and the Windows stores. Asphalt 8 is an arcade racing game that’s all about the adrenaline with ramps scattered across tracks that you can jump on. Forget about realism here, it’s about the fast-paced action and the game excels at that.

Asphalt 8 on Windows Phone costs $0.99 and on the Windows store it’s $1.99. Even though that’s a bit steeper than the now zero-dollar cost the game carries on iPhone, iPad and Android, it would still be money well spent.

Asphalt brings you the choice of 47 performance cars that most people can only dream owning in real life like the Lamborghini Veneno and Bugatti Veyron. The action happens in 9 exotic locations including Venice, Guiana and the Nevada desert.

To download the game, just hit the links right below.

Who cares❔ Windows Phone had Netflix before Android, and Disqus, and a whole lot of other popular apps, but does that mean anything❔.. And yes,, WP had Netflix before Android.http://www.wp7forum.com/windows-phone-7-applications/windows-phone-7-gets-netflix-before-android/

its better on wp, gsmarena claims its not smooth on android, nothing like the trailers. while it just looks on the lumia 920 like how it looks in the trailers. its very nice that they took the extra time to optimize it better on wp.

On Android, looks and works better on my S4 Mini than on Nexus 7 2013. But my 720 can't run it at all, slow and crashes all the time, so it's not that optimized you think.

im hugely disappointed with asphalt 8. You either have to play all day every day to get a decent ride or pay stupid amounts of real money to get freemium upgrades. When i come to power, im banning all freemium apps!!! Would much rather pay abit more on a one-off purchase, than not pay at first and pay more later.

It was not free on android and iOS when its launched. May be they will make it free after some time on WP as well.

Better not be free. Besides i will stay away from this game if there a possibility of a freemium conversion down the road. You will end up paying to play for the first few months get hook then license error force you to redownload the freemium version to keep paying for in-game upgrades.

Funny enough I think the game is more optimized for pc. It runs better with some nice effects on my lenovo y500. Meanwhile on my note 3 it runs just normal.
