Racing games have always been one of the most top downloaded app categories in history. Although PC and console racing games give players considerably a lot more control over their driving, some smartphone racing games also manage to make a great impression. The Asphalt series has been around for a while and it isn’t just the amazing controls that people love, the graphics are equally impressive. Asphalt 9, the latest edition to the series, brings in tons of new features and upgrades on the gaming modes, controls and of course, the graphics. Asphalt 9 is a free to download app but offers some pricey in-app purchases that can seriously help elevate your status in the game.
There’s a lot to love about Asphalt 9 but let’s begin with the cars it hosts first. This game replicates some of the most famous and fastest racing cars and produces them in a hyper-realistic manner for the smartphone app. These cars include those from Ferrari, Porsche, W Motors and more. Players are free to choose whatever car they want to drive (given that it’s unlocked of course!). All cars have their particular specs that make them unique so that you can have a characteristic driving experience with each car featured in the game. A total of 50 cars are supported by Asphalt 9 but they have to be unlocked as you progress through the game.
The controls of Asphalt 9 are pretty great for a smartphone game. Sure, the classic tilt the phone to drive control still exists but it’s much smoother and refined than most other racing games.
Backing up the smooth interface and breezy controls are the impeccable HD graphics. Perhaps one of the key reasons behind the success of the Asphalt series is the massively immersive 3D art. Asphalt 9 makes you forget that you’re playing on a smartphone or a smart device and creates the same visuals as you would expect from a modern PC game or an Xbox or PS4 game. The visuals are truly worth all the great feedback this game gets.
Asphalt 9 also makes customizing cars and other similar options for your driving experience possible. The customization options lets user try their creativity (and tact!) to choose the best material for their car. You can also choose the color of the car paint or change the rims to make your car look unique in front of your opponents.
Driving in Asphalt 9 is a whole adventure on its own. Apart from the basic controls, you can also unleash a powerful boost of nitro to make your car accelerate at great speeds. In fact, the nitro boost is able to break the sound barrier. You can also do a 360 degrees to take down your opponent by double tapping the brake control.
This racing game features multiple gaming modes. The basic storyline or career mode features over 60 seasons and around 800 events. This is quite a lot for a smartphone game and makes Asphalt 9 an app that will hang around in your phone for a pretty long time. You can also challenge other players around the world in the multiplayer mode. In this mode you can race against up to 7 other players and take home the trophy to become a street legend. The multiplayer mode also lets you build an online community where you can track your milestone progress and your rankings on the leaderboard charts.
