Asphalt 9 is a free-to-play racing game and is the 9th installment in the Asphalt series.  In the game, the player controls various cars to navigate through courses from all over the world. Players can access several modes, including arcade, multiplayer, career, and daily challenge.

Multiplayer allows you to connect with other racers from around the world to compete against. You can also create a “club” and compete with friends and participate in various club challenges. Playing through various levels earns you coins and tokens which can be used to purchase additional items and features. 

Asphalt 9 is free-to-play but in-games purchases are available, especially if you want to access all of the available cars. The game is rated E for Everyone on all systems except for iOS which gives it a rating of 12 and older. Because of some mild in-game violence (crashes) this game is not recommended for very young children. 

Asphalt 9  helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Working Memory: Recalling and retaining information in our minds while working.

Like all racing games, Asphalt 9 has a set of controls that dictates what actions you can take with your vehicle. Players need to remember what buttons control what functions in real time as they navigate the various courses in the game. Because each course is different and increases in difficulty, students with developing working memory skills may find it easier to play through a few of the beginning courses until they are comfortable with the controls before moving on to harder levels or racing against people in multiplayer mode. 


Flexibility: Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations. 

Each course in the game is different and provides different opportunities and challenges. Therefore, the player needs to be flexible and adapt their style of driving to the situation at hand. Players who struggle with flexibility may find it easier to play one particular level a few times to familiarize themselves with the controls before going into more unpredictable situations in higher level courses or with real life players in the multiplayer or club modes.
