Asphalt 7: Heat Launches for Android OS

Asphalt 7: Heat is now available in the Google Play store for just $0.99.

The new racing game for Android mobile devices features 60 different cars, 15 challenging tracks, 6 game models and superior HD graphics that could be fully enjoyed on new devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Google Nexus 7 tablet.

The game was developed by Gameloft and runs on all Android devices 2.2 and up.

The Asphalt series has been a success for Gameloft, and the seventh installment brings with it a significant graphics update. It also allows players to race in exotic locations such as Shanghai, Hawaii, Moscow, Miami and London.

The cars in Asphalt 7 feature more detail, and look more realistic. The game's controls feature more realistic handling and shadows and reflections have also been improved, according to Gameloft.

Gameloft also recently released two other titles for mobile devices based on the summer blockbusters "The Amazing Spider-Man," and "The Dark Knight Rises."

"The Amazing Spider-Man" is an action adventure game that is loosely based off of the film and was released on July 3. It puts Android users in the role of Spider-Man as he rids New York City of criminals and super villains.

It also allows players to freely roam around the city looking for missions and pits Spider-Man against plenty of goons that he needs to take care of.

"The Dark Knight Rises" plays much differently from the new Spider-Man title as it is a classic side-scroller that plays like the Arkham Asylum games currently available on the PS3, and Xbox 360.

The fighting is very similar to those games as Batman must beat his opponents into submission, an also creep around trying not to be noticed by goons carrying heavy artillery.
