Microsoft released its Surface and Surface Pro back in 2012 and many people enjoyed the idea of having a device that serves as a tablet but in the same time can be a laptop also. After almost 3 years since the release of those devices and we think that at the moment they are the both Windows 2in1 devices that can be bought without paying too much.
The Surface 2 and Surface Pro 3 can replace a laptop successfully, but at the same time they can also be quite good gaming devices. However, Surface 2 doesn’t allow you to install games that are not in Windows Store, while Surface Pro 3 allows you to do this.
Here are some of the best Surface Games that are available in Windows Store.
If you are into games such as Crash Bandicoot or Mario Kart, then you will surely enjoy this game. Asphalt Overdrive is the first Asphalt racing game where you need to buy new cars with the point of just running and escaping from cops as fast as possible.
Aside from the missions where you need to run from the police, there are some other missions such as the ones where you don’t have to hit some obstacles or others where you have to do some stunts. Users can also connect on their Facebook account using the Asphalt Overdrive game and share achievements with their friends. Asphalt Overdrive is completely free on Surface devices.
