Time for another game of the week. This week we will be looking at really impressive new car game called Asphalt 7.
Click here for Asphalt 7 in the app store
Overall the gameplay is great. The controls are very responsive and intuitive. You can turn the car by turning phone or tablet, this works great unlike some other car games out there. You can also boost your car by tapping on the right side of the screen or break by tapping on the left side. Your hand never gets in the way of where you are supposed to see.
You pick up and build Nitro to help you get ahead, you can also knockdown you opponent (burnout style) to get ahead. You get cash if you win and can also pick up cash that lets you buy more cars and upgrades for you car. You also get starts when you win a race that enables you to buy new cars with your cash. (You can also buy new starts with real money but this is not something I would recommend.)
There is plenty of content in this game. There are tons and tons of cars that looks exactly like the real cars, in fact in the first few tiers you get a new almost every single race. There are many big brand name cars in the game like BMW, Ford, Audi, Chevrolet, Dodge, Land Rover, Mini Cooper, Nissan, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and many more.
You can also customize each car by painting it different colors, putting on decals or tinting the windows.
Just like there are loads of cars there are loads of tracks that each looks great and plays different.
The Graphics are probably the first thing you will read about this game anywhere else because they are simply amazing. If you asked me a few years ago if games would look this great on mobile devices I would a defiantly said no. The cars looks great and the tracks look great but you can probably see that from the pictures yourself. This is without a doubt one of the best looking mobile games around.
The interface is also very polished with nice icons that fit the game and make the menu easy to use. The only thing I dont like is that they ask you to “share” your results after each race that gets kind of annoying.
For only $0.99 this game truly is a steal, most people only see the great graphics but there is a lot more to this game. The gamplay is solid and there are plenty of content to keep you busy for a very long time. I am not really someone that likes car games but this game is really fun and I will defiantly play it more to get some of those awesome looking Lamborghinis and Ferrari’s.
