Popular racing game Asphalt 8: Airborne, first introduced in August, is free-to-play with a new update that also includes additional cars, races, and multiplayer tracks.
Along with a Clio R.S., the game includes limited time races and 7 new reverse tracks in multiplayer mode. There are new power ups to purchase as well, including the Tuning Kit, Nitro, and Double Credits.
With the update, the on-screen touch controls can be custom configured, and support for Apple's upcoming iOS 7 game controllers has also been added to the game. Asphalt 8: Airborne is one of over a dozen games now offering official support for Made for iPhone (MFi) controllers being developed by companies like MOGA and Logitech.
Though Apple continues to offer no prospective release date on the third party controllers, with the hardware itself nearing completion and games continuing to add support, iOS game controllers, which are well suited to racing-style games like Asphalt 8, could potentially make an appearance before the end of the year.
Asphalt 8: Airborne can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Just one main and simple rule: Go for STARS, not CARS! Don’t buy each new car which is offered. Look in the Seasons plan what car do you need for accomplishing certain race events (what gives you even more stars to unlock new events).

tA editor’s rating: 5/5. tA member’s rating: 5/5. App Store user’s rating in all countries: 5/5. Best action game in store! Far better than RR3.
And my tips
I talked about beating level 3 without paying money or too much farming on my tip page.
Actually IAP are cracked on Android. I use my iPad to beat the cheaters most of the time because they usually have no skill.
Enjoyable even with the IAP.
