The Google Play Store has been busy churning out some solid Android apps and games this week. Soccer, errr, football fans have an updated FIFA game to dig into, there's a great new strategy games from the Anomaly guys, and a smattering of utility apps to top it all off.
As always, we're eager to hear what you've found in the Play Store, but in the meantime, here are our top ten new Android apps and games of the week.
Though there are cars on roads, and they're often doing the unlikeliest of barrel rolls after launching off ramps, this isn't quite an Asphalt game you'd expect. Instead of a full-bore racing game, Asphalt Overdrive is more of an endless runner, which has players quickly swiping to steer between lanes, trash competitors, and dodge obstacles. Asphalt Overdrive follows a distinct 80s vibe in the game's background music and the cars available to unlock and upgrade. Many brand-name cars are available, and cosmetic customizations like paint jobs and decals will be available on top of more performance-based upgrades. Individual stages will require players smash other racers or get as far as possible in a limited amount of time, for example. Though Gameloft has dropped in-app purchases for the next Modern Combat game, they're alive and well in Asphalt Overdrive for accelerated progress. For a fast, light, and retro-styled racer, Asphalt Overdrive does very well.
