When you’re riding and your toes are on the pedals, it feels more natural to let your heels swing out from your body. But your bike was made with little metal plates where your heels are supposed to rest. Use them! That extra point of contact will make you feel that much more like a part of the bike. You’ll be a better rider because of this one (okay two) little things.
It definitely sucks when you’re in the lead near the end of track when all of a sudden, you get passed by dozens of cars. The best way to combat this is by pushing your nitro to the limit. That way, you’ll keep that leader position.
The unlockable stars that are seen on every stage are used when it comes to copping new races and seasons. Stars are also good when it comes to purchasing in-game items. Every time you earn a new star, this helps unlock a one-time money bonus that can be obtained at the end of every race. Try and aim for that one-time bonus for more money by completing every race.
You might not want to spend some real world currency on this game but if you do, go ahead and purchase those car packs. Car Packs include vehicles that pertain to every car class. Try and buy any of these car packs from the onset of your time with the game. It’s better to buy a car pack with car classes you don’t have than to purchase car packs late in the game with cars you already have.
TouchArcade.com offered players some tips on the best thing to do every stage:
This is probably one of the most important tips for playing Asphalt 8. Each map has LOADS of alternate routes, shortcuts and hidden passages. Some of them are shorter, longer, and the navigation difficulty varies. In order to ensure victory, you must master these routes and find the one that best fits your driving style while still ensuring you get an edge on the competition. The best way to do that is to simply play each one again and again while taking mental notes of where paths split and where the computer likes to go.
Modojo.com posted up some tips that you should clue you into how dangerous a racer is:
The higher a score an opponent has, the more likely they are to be aggressive during a race. This means ramming into you to gain the lead, and in some situations, wrecking your vehicle. Gameloft balanced the takedown feature in this mode, so you aren’t automatically destroyed when touched by a boosting vehicle. However, you can still wreck by going into the wall or traveling too far off the track. Play aggressive, and don’t be afraid to get a little dirty.
TouchArcade.com also listed a few details regarding drifting:
One of the best ways to earn a steady supply of nitro is to drift during curves. Drifting is as easy as tapping the break button, which starts the drift (a quick tap will end drift mode). While drifting, you can not only preserve speed during a curve, but you also earn nitro, which, as we mention above, is quite important.
TouchTapPlay.com noted that pulling off airborne tricks helps more than you think:
This game doesn’t have “Airborne” in its title for no reason! Therefore, make sure that you do the barrel rolls and get all the air time that you can. As a tip to increase that, use the nitro right before getting on a platform for that extra speed boost.
