Asphalt 8 Now Free on Google Play

Asphalt 8 is widely regarded as one of the best racing games on Google Play, with intense gameplay and great graphics. Normally that kind of game comes at a price, but it was only $0.99 at launch. Now, however, Asphalt 8 is free to anyone who wants it, and they can get it straight from Google Play.

There are of course purchases that you can make within the app for new cars and things like that, but those are not required of you, and you could just as easily get away without spending a cent.

The idea behind making the game free was essentially that Gameloft, the creators of Asphalt 8, wanted everyone to be able to play, even those that thought that spending $0.99 on an app was too much. You can find the QR code and link to the app after the break.

‘Tiny Death Star’ 8-bit Star Wars game released to Google Play

Star Wars Game

If you’re into Nimblebit’s “Tiny Towers” game, then you’ll certainly love it with a taste of everyone’s favorite sci-fi franchise.

The “Tiny Death Star” game, made by the folks over at Nimblebit in the same vein as their hit, “Tiny Towers,” challenges players to build a Death Star (which surprisingly has convenience stores and restaurants built in) in order to raise enough revenue to complete the Death Star and take over the galaxy. It’s a bit of a stretch, but it’s a comical spin-off of the Star Wars series, and promises to be highly addictive. NPCs will come in and out of the Death Star even while you’re not playing (real time component built in) and purchase merchandise from your virtual shops, and buy apartments, etc.

The game also builds in random mini-games in which you’ll have to search for spies or tend to bounty hunters, adding to the Star Wars theme of the game. Hit the break for a video, screens, and a link to the app in the Play Store.
