Technical Issues

During its event revival, the Android version of the game experienced issues with the game crashing and the event not showing up once Lab 2 started. Gameloft has since suspended the event as of October 4, 2016 and gave 50A8 tokens full 50 as compensation.

Trivia

  • The descriptions for Test 40 (Tokyo Rev. Infected) mention the 1 of 2 named characters in Asphalt 8. The lab scientist tells the racer that he received a fruit basket from Jun Mei.
    • The other character is Doug in the R&D event for the Mosler Super GT
