The Android OS platform is starting to catch up to Apple’s iOS platform with great games like Asphalt 7: Heat. While we have already reviewed Asphalt 7: Heat for the iPhone, we decided to check this out on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus Android device and put it through the paces.

Overall this arcade racing game is hot but the initial load time to get the game was a slow. However, once I got inside the game and racing I did not experience any lag time nor weird delays. I did re-visit the slow load time in between races, which definitely did not occur while playing on my iPhone. Beyond the slow loading there really are no other differences between the Android OS and iOS apps.
They both had some graphical glitches, specifically in this Android app video where I drove through another car as if it were a ghost. But, when you’re creating arcade-quality games for mobile devices, the trade off is not that big of a deal, especially for only $0.99. This game is packed with loads of racing content to include: different game modes, 60 different cars to customize, a wide variety of tracks, day and night racing and more.
Asphalt 7: Heat is a very good arcade racing game for the Android platform and played quite well on the Galaxy Nexus.
