Asphalt Overdrive 1.0 for iOS (iPhone screenshot 001)

French games maker Gameloft released a new racing game, Asphalt Overdrive, onto the App Store Thursday. Available for the iPhone and iPad on a free-to-play basis, the retro-styled racing title files as the first spinoff in the award-winning Asphalt franchise.

Set in a “new ’80s” version of California, the game features an intense racing experience which challenges players to outsmart and outrun the cops.

Download Asphalt Overdrive free from the App Store.

The mission-based lane racer includes 30 fully licensed vehicles, such as the iconic Lamborghini Countach and Ferrari Testarossa, that can be improved and upgraded as you progress throughout the game.

There are seven different mission types to choose from, including escaping the cops, defeating bosses, avoiding obstacles, performing impressive stunts and more.

Here’s the high-octane promotional trailer.

If you have one of the recent Lightning devices with either the A7 or A8 chip, you’ll no doubt appreciate lush visuals, real-time lighting and particle effects and more.

Speaking of racing games, Gameoft’s previous Asphalt game, Asphalt 8: Airborne, got updated with iOS 8 Metal graphics a few days ago. And while we’re at it, you may also want to check out Asphalt 7: Heat, which received four out of five stars from tens of thousands of reviewers.

The 93.8-megabyte universal app requires an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad running iOS 6.0 or later. It’s also optimized for the bigger screens on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

      -But you’re still right.

      • Why should you need Internet to play though. Also what happens when their servers shutdown? Will the game work? I doubt it which means your left with a piece of junk.

    Why do games keep crashing on my new iPhone 6 (and 5s)? This game crashes when it loads, Rayman crashes, Maze Runner won’t get passed the loading screen. iOS 8 is garbage right now.
