In case you were not aware of how great this game was, it won an award to prove it...

Asphalt Urban GT was initially launched in November 2004 and quickly set the standard for racing games on mobile phones. First released in 2D, and later in 3D, it is now also demonstrated in real-time multi-player versions on Verizon??s WCDMA network

Asphalt Urban GT?? combines the best elements of simulation and arcade racing games. Players will find themselves in the driver??s seat of some of the most prestigious and respected cars in the world, like the Audi TT Roadster 3.2 Quattro, the Chevrolet Corvette C6, the Ford GT and the Lamborghini Gallardo. The tracks are based on real environments like New York, Paris and Miami. Players are also given the opportunity to customize cars and buy new models, which was key to the original game??s success.

Gameloft, a leading developer and publisher of video games for mobile phones, was honoured on Thursday night at the BREW 2005 Awards ceremony for its racing game, Asphalt Urban GT. The game won Best Game Application at BREW??s Developers Awards which recognizes BREW applications created for consumers to play games. Judging was based on innovative design, ease of use, quality of graphics and originality. The ceremony was organized by Qualcomm during its annual BREW conference, which takes place this year in San Diego, California from June 1-3, 2005.

??Asphalt Urban GT has everything it takes to become a hit with gamers: the thrill of the sport, the rush of racing, custom versions of the most beautiful cars in the world, and fantastic design?? said Philippe Laurens, Gameloft??s game producer for Asphalt Urban GT. ??Gameloft paid close attention to the details that make a great game, and used all of its talent and abilities to ensure that the game was well adapted to mobile phones worldwide.??

Gameloft also announced today that a second version of the game will be released at the end of 2005.

This is the third year that the BREW Awards ceremony has taken place. Gameloft won an award at the first edition in 2003 for the game Prince of Persia.
