Asphalt 7: Heat (iOS)

The Good Asphalt 7 is one of the best for arcade racing, offering fantastic graphics as you race through several environments and unlock 60 licensed real-world vehicles.

The Bad Cars are slow to come by, which entices you to pay to play. The ability to buy your way to the top may turn some players off.

The Bottom Line If you want an arcade racing game that's less like a simulator and more about speeding down the track while grabbing bonus items, Asphalt 7 is one of the best in the App Store.

Asphalt 7: Heat (iOS)

Asphalt 7: Heat for iOS is the most recent in Gameloft's popular arcade-style racing franchise and it doesn't disappoint, with more than 60 cars to race and tons of tracks on which to make your way to the top.

Asphalt 7 has all the bells and whistles of a great arcade racing game. To start off, you get 60 licensed cars from manufacturers all over the world, including Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Aston Martin, all intricately detailed and great-looking on the Retina Display. There are six different game modes in which you'll be challenged to race in 15 different leagues for a total of 150 different races. Tracks are set in real cities around the world, such as Paris, London, and Miami, with all the appropriate landmarks. You also have achievements (called Goals, in this game) for everything from finishing your first race to completing a league and everything in between.

The control system is just like in the others from this franchise. The default control mode has you tilting to steer with the gas always on, and you have a button on the lower right to get a nitro boost. You also will find pickups around the track for both cash and nitro, so don't worry too much about overusing your speed boost.
