VROOM!  SCREECH!  VROOM! BOOM!  Music to any car enthusiast’s ears…  The sounds of one of the most exciting racing games I’ve ever played; Asphalt 6: Adrenaline.  The game has over 20 cars to unlock and drive, at least 50 tracks to unlock and race on, and countless upgrades.  The races start out easy, and get progressively harder.   There are some races where you eliminate other racers by forcing them off the track, there are duel races, drifting races and races where you have to place in the top three without eliminating any opponents.  The graphics quality is crystal-clear, you are able to play online, track how much money you win in a race, and look at your very own garage of cars.  There are some cars like the tiny Fiat 500 Abarth that are great for weaving in and out, and then there is the insanely good at drifting Shelby GT500 and Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG that get up to 1,000 drifting points in one drift.  Then, there is the straight-line-only MINI Cooper JCW (John Cooper Works) that will beat any car on a straightaway, but will be a terrible nuisance on a windy course.  Oh, and I almost forgot the bullet-tank Audi RS5 which has worse road manners than a tank with one tread, yet will win a race without trying.  Overall, the game is very well designed, and is truly the time-suck of boring office hours and/or schoolwork…

The game is available for PC’s with Windows 7, and Macs with OS X Snow Leopard.  It is by Gameloft Studios, is $6.99 in iTunes money, and is available on the App store.  If you are the simpler type of person, the game comes in: Asphalt 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 6: Adrenaline.  I happen to have 6: Adrenaline, which is best suited for Macs.  For those of us who are too lazy to type the game name into the search bar on the app store, I have attached the link.


Bye-bye sucka’s, I’m off to waste my brain!  I hope to race you online (BTW: You can challenge any racer that has won more than 10 races in a row! I WILL be one of those!)
