I have never been so excited about a game and after playing it for a week, got bored easily. Yes, I am talking about the very popular Asphalt 8 game (Android | iOS) only. And, here is a quick tutorial that will help you download Asphalt 8 for PC and allow you to play Airborne on your laptop or desktop system.
Gameloft came up with this new series which was released a year ago. Since its introduction in the Google Play and iOS App stores, it has been very popular. The new game engine, responsible for delivering flying car stunts and experience, was the very first reason to get addicted to the game, and also to feel excited after playing it initially.
But, as soon as you pass a week or two playing the same, you will easily get bored and the excitement is seen nowhere. Then you are left with your score card, few cars and an urge to invest money too fast. That’s where in-app purchases come into the role and you start helping Gameloft for developing such games.

Let me get back to the main topic now. If you want to know more details about this game, then I am going to start this tutorial with the same. But, you can skip and move directly to the next part, which starts the installation instructions.
Asphalt 8 Airborne Review
Table of Contents
In the introduction itself, I had shared the review in a nutshell, but if you want an explanation for those words, then here is the section you will find it.
The Airborne version i.e., the 8th version of Asphalt game is pretty impressive because of the new game engine. The thing this new engine does is it allows you to fly your cars in the air. You are allowed to do a lot of stunts in the air and thus gain better reputation on your profile.
The animations, graphics and sound effects are so unique and awesome that it will take a minute for you to get addicted to the whole game. Crash scenes, different undergrounds are truly awesome. You can even set if the game runs at its highest graphic standard or minimum.
The game holds a very good length for us to continue playing for a month, even if we play it all the time. Getting started is pretty easy but moving ahead is tough. You seriously need to think twice (or many other times) before spending the money you have earned the hard way.
If you just want to proceed ahead without thinking on the money, then the in-app purchases are present. This is how Gameloft is going to earn and that’s also a negative thing, according to me. I am not against their earnings, but they have taken it too aggressively in case of Asphalt 8.
The rides available inside are all genuine and you can easily find their real life avatars on the road. This increases the fun further as we can drive and see how a particular ride performs. Most of the times, I even found the specifications intact as in the real life car. Awesome, huh?

So, the Asphalt 8 game is an experience, and it becomes better if you can find some solution of the money problem inside. Once the issue is sorted out, you will find yourself very high in top ranking charts.
This is the section where I will let you know about a perfect computer that can run Asphalt 8 game or any other Android game without any performance or graphic-related issues.
I had already shared a dedicated guide covering the same thing, which I recommend now you to check before you proceed ahead. It is very important to have a compatible system before getting started with the exact process.
There are 50-50 chances of getting yourself trapped in an issue, caused by the Android app player software we will be using. In most of the cases, the main issue is due to compatibility, which I am advising you to fix first.
So, here is that guide covering everything about a perfect computer to run Android games on PC. Check it out, and once done, get back here and proceed with my next part.
The only case when you don’t need to check that special guide is if your system is using 2015 latest hardware and software equipment.
Process to Download Asphalt 8 for PC
Welcome to the installation part. I know you came here for this only, but I have to share everything to cover a detailed guide. Anyway, following are the instructions you need to go through to get over with this request.
Special Note – If your system runs on Windows 8/8.1 OS version, then you can directly install Asphalt 8 on Windows 8 from the Windows Store. Here is the link you should follow, if you match with the basic requirement.
Step 1 – Grab the installer file of BlueStacks app player and get started with its installation process. I recommend you to try only with the online installer (not at all with the offline one because it is old and not safe to use) and that too from its genuine website. If you want help, check out BlueStacks app player installation part of my blog and select the platform you are using.
Step 2 – I hope BlueStacks is ready and you are eligible to jump to this step two. Start the software and right in its interface, click on the Search tool you see placed on the top left corner.
Step 3 – Enter ‘Asphalt 8’ as the search term, and click on the Google play store link as you will find ‘no results’. This click will open the search results in the Play store.
Step 4 – Before you can access the Google play store and its services, you need to login with a Google account. BlueStacks will ask that by asking you to start its Synchronization service. Yes, it is just like an Android device.
Step 5 – As you gain access to Play store services, the Asphalt 8 game will be at the front in the search result. Click on the game and finally click on ‘Install’ option ahead of it’s listing.
This will do the trick for now. The game size is huge (around 1GB), so it may take longer than usual to get downloaded. Also, it will download an additional support file first and then the main game. It is all part of the official process, so nothing to worry about.

After a while, when the game files are downloaded, it will be installed on its own, just like it happens in the case of an Android device. Once done, you will get a notification that Asphalt 8 is installed on your computer.

Benefits of playing Asphalt 8 on PC/Laptop
The very first straight reason is to get a better experience on bigger and HD resolution display. Chances of having a gadget with HD display are high, but their screen size are limited, which isn’t the case in a computer. So, battling around the world with your race car is too much fun.
If you have a better audio system attached to the system, then you are lucky enough to enjoy the unique and very impressive sound effects and tracks being played throughout the background. This further increases the experience and makes it only the better.
Because of the availability of keyboard and mouse controllers, controlling and playing the game is going to be easy and fun. I have always been fan of PC games and never liked playing them on a touch screen device, because of limited controls. If you are like me, then this feature is going to be experienced at your end as well.
Another reason why you should be playing Asphalt 8 on PC is that the game requires a high-end Android or iOS device. It should have at least 2GB RAM and full HD display resolution along with quad-core processor. Buying such a device will cost you money, but that can be saved if you can play Asphalt 8 on laptop or computer, you already own.
