Asphalt Overdrive is out: pure arcade racing in southern Cali, available for free on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone
Asphalt Overdrive might carry the Asphalt franchise name, but it looks nothing like Asphalt 8 or any other racing game in the series. It is a pure arcade experience: three lanes, no turns, just swipe left or right to switch lanes, and push the nitro to zip away from the cops.

Yes, Asphalt Overdrive feels more like Subway Surfers in a car and not the Asphalt series, but it’s not a bad game and it features awesome graphics, and rides that are to drool for. You can customize the cars to your liking, and on the track you have Asphalt 8-esque slo-mo, and gameplay gets pretty intense.

Right below, is the feats of the new Asphalt Overdrive:

  • 30 performance cars including the iconic Lamborghini Countach and Ferrari Testarossa
  • Cali street action, with car improvement and upgrade options
  • 7 different mission types: escape the cops, defeat bosses, avoid obstacles, and perform stunts
  • Subtly retro “new '80s” atmosphere
  • Stunning visuals thanks to real-time lighting and particle effects

And that’s about all you need to know before jumping behind that virtual wheel. Asphalt Overdrive is developed by Gameloft, and is available for free (with in-app purchases) on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.

This should happen to almost every app for all the OSs at the same time.

I want an Asphalt like the ones I've been playing on my Nokia phones like 3, 4, but with better graphics! This one is quite close to the concept, but the old Asphalts were so much better!

The game needs internet connection and I hate that you need "energy" to play like Candy Crush. Deleted.

I've played every Asphalt since the beginning but this one doesn't really look to appealing. Maybe my thoughts will change after giving it a try...
