Ashphalt 8: Airborne for Windows 8 – FREE for a Limited Time

I am by no means a gamer so my knowledge in this area is very limited. However, it seems that the “Asphalt” series of racing games has proven to be quite popular among gaming enthusiasts. ‘Asphalt 8: Airborne’ has previously been available for Android and iOS devices and is now also available for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 users via the store… and here’s the best part… it’s free for a limited time!

(*Note: there is no indication of when this offer will actually expire so, if you are interested, I suggest you act quickly)

  1. I just installed Asphalt 8 on Win 8 and it’s a lot easier to control than on a phone or it could be my age 🙂
    Looks good too.
