"Feel the thrill of racing like never before."
Are you tired of all the seemingly predictable racing games for the iOS that emulate the real fast and furious vehicles and their handling to perfection? While those might be just what the doctor ordered for the diehard racing simulators fans, others prefer the smooth and thrilling arcade experience that only Asphalt 6 can confer.
Realism might not be the main highlight of this iPhone game, but you won't really perceive its absence in a negative manner. With versatile career paths, a myriad of tracks and events, excellent graphics and high velocity, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline is just the kind of game to keep you entertained for hours and hours.
The interface of the game is cleverly constructed as to allow players to view all the necessary details and notifications during driving. In the upper mid section of the screen players can see the current speed of their vehicle as well as the adrenaline bar, while underneath the drifts and other notifications pop up. On the left upper section of the screen you will notice the position of your vehicle and in the upper right corner a sub-window displays the laps completed/remaining.
The developers at Gameloft really did a good job designing the controls of the vehicle, as all the actions necessary include tapping on the left section for breaking and on the right section for boosting velocity. The game includes an auto acceleration feature that fits really well in this case, although some purist racing fans might disagree. However, it might take a bit of practice to master the drifts.
The amazing graphical interface of the game and the high speed that your car can reach definitely constitute the main attraction points in Asphalt 6: Adrenaline. Furthermore, the players can partake in 5 individual events organized in 11 leagues and complete different objectives in order to gather drift points. At the same time, you can take advantage of the multiplayer feature of Asphalt to go head to head with your friends online.
The rewards you can earn by completing the events and achievements permit you to acquire more customization options and faster vehicles as well as unlock new events. In regards to the extension of the vehicle fleet, Asphalt does not disappoint and – spoiler alert – you will even get to drive bikes!
The main issue here is the absence of the track map, which could have proven very helpful in determining the twists and turns of the road ahead. Moreover, the handling of all automobile models is pretty similar, even though the max speed is what dissociates them.
A few viable alternatives for this game comprise of CSR Racing, Real Racing 2, Reckless Getaway, Jet Car Stunts, DrawRace 2 and Death Rally.
Asphalt 6: Adrenaline is the kind of game that combines easy controls, incredible graphics, easy and comprehensive controls, a wide plethora of options and high re-playability. In spite of the fact that realism went down the drain, the rewarding tracks, adrenaline rushing events, and many other features make this game an excellent source of long term entertainment for any iPhone owner.
