EA owned mobile games developer, Gameloft, has developed a reputation for making free mobile games with impressive graphics and limitless content.

What you will immediately notice about Asphalt Xtreme is that it is very different to its predecessors in terms of the theme. Gone are the days of driving ground-hugging supercars through the city streets.

Much like the cathode ray in the first TV sets, electrons (tiny negatively charged particles) are fired at the screen and are controlled by magnets to make the picture that we see, as controlled by a signal received by the set via satellite or [...]
