I assume this update is along the same lines as when they updated the hd version to take advantage of the ipad 2 ?

FREE again!

Best sale ever!

My favorite video game of all times, especially the local multiplayer option!

Don't miss that, folks!


(Sounds like Asphalt 7 will show up next week or so. Finally.)

Wrote an article on Asphalt 6, it's German-language but you'll find all lists with tracks and cars and some links with tips.

Thanks mate!

the new asphalt 6 update added 2 new cars. the size on the device which was already too big before the update (1GB) is now near 1.5GB!

this is the most disgraceful update i have seen in a while. basically the game doubled in size since its initial release and, imho, with no real justification.

thank you gameloft

The Asphalt 7 rumour? Any source or link.
I'm not doubting you, I'd just be glad to see a new one because I have 6 since day one launch and would like to see some new cars and tracks.

that A7 rumor post is from roughly 4 months ago. obviously, asphalt 7 didn't happen the week following that post.

update on A6 on my device: sadly, i deleted it. yeah, A6 is my favorite iOS racer and i do support gameloft's intentions on making this game perform better on new iPads, but for me it was just investing 500MBs into something that has no real compensation. and these 100s of MBs are scarce on my device. in a way this is my fault, i had to get the 16GB model. next time i buy an ios device, it will have no less than 64GBs.

Ah, fair enough. Never looked at date of the post, my bad.

It was a wrong expectation by me, sorry. Based on the fact as it was all the same with Asphalt 4, 5 and 6: One week before the launch of a new version (always in December ready for xmas) the previous version went free. So I thought it would be "natural" that A7 would show up in Dec '11. But: Nothing until now.

And correct: The iPad retina update of A6 needs another update.

Game Impressions

Installed the recent update on iPad 3 (4G/64, iOS 5.1.1), made a reboot before starting Asphalt 6: Adrenaline. Old habits. Played two races.

It's okay now. Very well playable. When the framerate was let's say 70% of optimum before—now it's about 90-95%. Keep in mind that the game is full of the fastest action possible. Looks really great! Not tested multiplayer and other functions yet. Will test iPad 1 as well. Made some screenshots for you:

Now I know why I bought an iPad 3.
