The Asphalt series has always aimed to be less of a simulation style and more arcade like in both presentation and handling and Asphalt 5 continues that ethos. You'll be travelling round the world to visit the racetracks on offer as you build up points and money to buy more cars and get the most from the game.
Asphalt fans will be wondering about the rather low number in the title - Asphalt 5 has been out for some time in the gaming world and has been available on other mobile platforms for a year or two. Part of me thinks this is an "oh we still have this in the cupboard? Best get it out!" type of release. But it plays well, the graphics look good after a quick spin in the trial version, and Gameloft are pretty good at getting the difficulty curve right in their driving games.
From the directory listing:
- Over 30 beautiful and prestigious cars.
- 12 beautiful locations with hidden shortcuts and jump ramps.
- 8 different racing events.
- Drift Contest, Cop Chase, Time Attack, Duel Mode, Last Man Standing and Escape.
