Released in late June, Asphalt 7: Heat is the latest installment of the Gameloft’s hit racing game series.Today, Gameloft released the first update to Heat that included two new cars, more control options, as well as optimizations and fixes.
Even though it exhibits more of an arcade feel than its competitor, Real Racing 2, Asphalt 7 still has plenty of hardcore racing action and the opportunity of driving the world’s top cars. In fact, Gameloft boasts “Drive 60 different cars from the world’s most prestigious manufacturers” as one of Asphalt 7′s main features, which sounds good compared to Real Racing’s “30 licensed cars from real-world manufacturers.” Although, there’s more to it than that, but let us move on.
Arriving in Asphalt 7: Heat v1.0.1 are two 2013 Hyundais. Available in tier 1 after earning 100 stars, the Veloster Turbo can reach up to 285 kilometers per hour with nitro boost and 245 kilometers per hour without. Considered a tier 2 vehicle, the Genesis Coupe has a top speed of 260 kilometers per hour on its own and 324 kilometers per hour when adding boost.
Along with cars, Gameloft has implemented control customization. Accessed within the Control area of the settings menu, the Custom option allows button placement anywhere on the screen you prefer for control schemes B, C, and D.
Asphalt 7: Heat is a universal app compatible with iPad, second generation iPad, third generation iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, 32GB and 64GB third generation iPod touch, fourth generation iPod touch and newer running iOS 4.0 or later, and available in the App Store for $0.99.
