Back in November Gameloft’s extremely popular racing game series Asphalt 8: Airborne came to Windows Phone for a minor price ($1.99). However, now Windows Phone users have more reason to celebrate as Asphalt 8: Airborne is now available for free! That is right, absolutely free!
If you don’t know about Asphalt 8: Airborne then you are missing out. It was perhaps one of the best racing games to hit mobile devices in 2013 and features a lot of new things. Among those are a brand new physics engine that allows you to zip along tunnels, embankments, etc. to really give a sense of speed. Controls are through tilting and surprisingly is very well responsive. Essentially Asphalt 8: Airborne is a world of fun and now that it is for free on Windows Phones everyone should check it out.
When we first saw Total Conquest, we thought of it as a love child of Age of Empires and Caesar 3 (both from PC). However, the more we played it, the more we got that old AoE feeling. New game from mobile gaming giant, Gameloft, is all about managing your (ancient) Roman province and defending it with troops and anti-siege equipment.
Here is what we liked:
- 10 different unit types, all upgradable
- Single player campaign
Alliance with other human players, mutual co-dependent warfare strategies to ensure victory in Legion Wars.
What we didn’t like:
- Nothing stand out really, graphics are little “model like” but that can be subjective, they are sharp and clear.
From the technical side, games runs fine, visual and audio elements are good and if you can provide 158MB free space on your 512MB device *or better), you can play Total Conquest for free.
