Asphalt 8 is racing video game by Gameloft. It is the tenth game of the Asphalt game series. Recently, this game won the best game app at the Mobile World Congress' Global Mobile Awards in Barcelona for its stunning visual,  the extensive use of simulated HDR rendering and pixel shaders, most notably the sky and reflections on the road surface, and a fun gameplay with its innovative use of control options. Asphalt 8 also brings to its stable a wide variety of super fast cars; the Lotus Exige S Roadster, Aston Martin V12 Zagato, Nissan GT-R NISMO, and the legendary Enzo Ferrari just to name a few. 

True to the game's namesake; Airborne, Asphalt 8 features a lot of jumping, as evident by the large number of ramps in a given race. Players earn points by putting their cars through a series of jumps, spins (drifting onto a ramp) and barrel rolls (hitting curved ramps). These jumps help players earn nitro boost, which will be used to win the race because then players can accelerate to the finish line. There is now a new feature call "Perfect Nitro", sort of like an even more boost during a normal nitro boost. 

There are a total 180 race events divided into eight seasons. When players start playing the game, only Season One is available to be played. The other subsequent seasons are unlocked using stars earned by winning a race or by in-apps purchase to "Season Unlock". There has been a total of 11 app updates since Asphalt 8 was launched, with additional challenges added to the seasons. In online multplayer mode, the game can be played both via Wi-fi or through the internet and this mode, there is a "world Series" competition amongst other players.

Asphalt 8: Airborne is available on iOS, Android, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8 and BlackBerry 10
