So about a week ago there was a story we reported on regarding Gameloft’s Asphalt 7: Heat title and the fact that users were being bombarded suddenly with what looked to be Airpush ads. It didn’t help either that a forum administrator over on the Gameloft forums confirmed that Gameloft uses Airpush. Well Gameloft has sent over an official statement regarding this whole issue.
When it comes to ads and Android games, many of us have come to terms with the fact that they will always be there. In fact it is pretty much a standard option of monetizing a game that a developer releases for free. When we buy a game, we generally expect to not see ads at all although sometimes they are included anyways. Well Gameloft’s Asphalt 7: Heat is now using Airpush which happens to be one of the ad serving services that most people find incredibly annoying.
