Asphalt 6 now available from Gameloft

One year ago I declared that Gameloft had pulled into the lead as the top Android game developer when they published Asphalt 5 and they have maintained their leading position ever since. This week Gameloft finally made Asphalt 6: Adrenaline HD available for Android devices.

Asphalt 6 will set you back $4.99 and it can only be purchased through Gameloft’s web store, but this is easily the best racing game I’ve played on Android and it’s worth the price of admission. To purchase Asphalt 6, visit Gameloft.com on your mobile device or order it from their official product page.

We have been pretty critical of Gameloft’s web store, but the overall level of service is improving. It now allows multiple payment methods including credit card, PayPal, and Amazon payments. We would still like to see these games published in the official Android Market, but Gameloft says it doesn’t meet their needs so don’t expect that to happen anytime soon.

I’m only about 10% finished with the game, but it looks to offer almost endless amounts of gameplay. There are 12 detailed tracks and 42 vehicles to unlock, so you will stay busy trying to conquer the 11 different leagues and 55 challenges offered in the game. When you want to take a break from career mode, there is also an online multiplayer mode that allows up to 6 players.

Performance wise, Asphalt 6 runs pretty smooth, but it is also one of the first games to stutter at times on my Nexus S. It’s not enough to affect the gameplay, but I would love to see how Asphalt 6 runs on one of the faster dual-core phones. Gameloft optimizes each game for individual phones, so performance may vary depending on your device.

Check out the trailer below for an idea of what to expect in Asphalt 6.

Highlights of Asphalt 6 include:

  • 42 models from the most prestigious manufacturers (Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, BMW, Audi and more)
  • Online/Local Multiplayer mode for up to 6 players
  • 12 tracks, from L.A. to Tokyo and more, with HD graphics
  • An immersive Career mode with 11 different leagues and 55 events
  • Amazing number of tuning options for each model (decals, rims, boosts, and more)

      @Richard Yarrell Quit making Phandroid look bad by posting their links in inappropriate stories.

      @Taylor I’m still skeptical of buying Gameloft until they realize they’re no better than anyone else & post in the Android Market, but about how large is the app, and how much extra does it download after install?

    Do people even play phone games for enjoyment? I seem to only play phone games to waste time.

    • http://Website Eric Rossman

      If the games were enjoyable yes, that is a fuzzy area in personal bias.

      I both waste time, and enjoy playing. :)

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I’d rather cut my balls, fry them in hot oil and munch on them before I purchase another Gameloft title from these crooks.

    My experience with them has left a sour taste in my mouth. I purchased the Modern Combat 2 that Taylor recommended. After a lot of consideration, I purchased it. Two months have passed and I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO PLAY IT. Why? Because the blasted thing will not download the “after download resources” needed. Download just fails every single time. Emailed tech support hundreds of times but I get the same automated response. “Thanks for emailing Gameloft. Tech Support will respond to you as soon as possible”.

    If the games not on the market, RUN, RUN, RUN as far away as you can!!! All they want is your $5. After that, it’s “Screw you. Go to hell”.

      Are you trying to download over the network only, or have you tried using wifi? A lot of times this will only work over wifi.

    It’d be nice if Taylor and everyone else reporting android related news, would stop reporting Gameloft related news (unless it was regarding them adding games to the android market). They don’t deserve the advertising.

      Have we really got to the point where people’s blind hatred for a company actually makes them think censorship is the answer to the problem.

      I go to Android sites for news and what’s going on in Android world that day or week. I’m not looking for a curated experience, please disregard previous ridiculous comment.

      The more information and discussion about a given topic the better a person will be at making an informed decision.
