Asphalt 8: Airborne
Submitted by: David K.
* Initiate a drift by tapping the left side of the screen, then control the
degree of the turn by tiling your device. Once you do this, level out, and
after a few seconds, your drift will stop. It's best to keep this handy for
more than one turn, as you'll go right back into the drift. The more you drift,
the more boost you earn.
* Ramps and barrel roll ramps are available, and the more air you get, the
more boost you'll receive. Hit the boost button a second before you launch
off the ramp. You'll speed up, and the game will automatically store leftover
boost power until you land, with additional power included; you'll always
land on your tires.
* It's a matter of hitting your boost at the right time and ramming the
opposition; one hit and they're done. What's more, you'll earn additional
boost, which is useful for getting multiple takedowns in succession.
* Save some boost power towards the end of the race. Computer-controlled
drivers have a habit of blowing past you right before the finish line.
With boost, you'll be able to maintain the lead.
Nitro boosts your speed. Try to it whenever possible and save it until you
can use it to its full potential, as in straight-aways. If you have a nitro
at the end of the race, use it then to maintain or get the lead.
Drift around corners to avoid slowing down too much.
Do barrel rolls and get as much air time as possible. You can increase your
time in the air by using the nitro just before getting on a platform.
Save money to purchase upgrades. Get the Handling upgrade first to increase
control. Then purchase the Top Speed is a must, followed by Nitro and Acceleration.
