Asphalt 8

French games maker Gameloft today issued a nice update to its popular arcade racing game, Asphalt 8: Airborne, available as a free-to-play download for the iPhone and iPad in the App Store.

The update invites you to “discover the treasures of the Middle East” and “tear up the asphalt” with the brand new Dubai location, five new cars, a brand new season and gameplay streaming via the Twitch platform (now owned by Amazon) on previous-generation devices like the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and fourth-generation iPad.

As mentioned above, a brand new ninth season is also available with 74 new events. Among the five new cars included in this update are the Mercedes-Benz Biome concept car and the Nissan GT-R NISMO.

      Cheating takes the fun from game.

      Error 404 : proper answer not found
      I just want to know whether they work or not , if you don’t know please don’t give some irrelevant answers

      As far as I know, you can’t find any cheats on v1.5.0, latest Asphalt 8.
      And now there’s no tweak available, then if you use incorrect ver. of cheat, the game may crash.

      >Cheating takes the fun from game.
      Agree with him. Moderate cheat will let your game playing more fun, yet it ISN’T good way to enjoy at all.


      We should enjoy playing without any hack or cheat, tweak.

      Gameloft is making Asphalt Overdrive. Therefore, they may not make new one, Asphalt 9. Overdrive≠9. Overdrive is spin-off.
      At the same time, they may not have enough idea to create newer Asphalt because Overdrive looks like existing popular game such as Temple Run(sorry, but I don’t come up with better example).

      Hence, we had better not look forward new one. You know they keep updating 8, by offering new online event race continually, hence little hope I think.
