How can I install a large app (Asphalt 8) onto my Samsung Galaxy Ace II?

I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace II I8160 phone, not rooted. Its internal storage is 1.1 Gigabytes, and I have a class 10 SD Card with 8 Gigabytes.

I want to download a large app (Asphalt 8) which is 1.5 Gigabytes, more than the amount of internal storage that I have, but I can fit it on my SD Card. However, I am unable to download it from the Play Store, and I am unsure whether it is because it downloads directly to the phone (internal storage), or because of the cache partition. When I try to download the app I receive error 498. I have tried to fix the cache problem by wiping my cache with a cache cleaner app, and by manually wiping the cache of Google Play Services, Google Play Store and Google Services Framework in the settings.

When I downloaded and installed the APK file from the internet onto my SD Card I was able to launch the application but received another error saying that I didn’t have enough space on my memory card to install the game. So my question is, what now? Is there any way that I can get this game? If so, how do I do it? Will I need to root my phone? Any help or input is greatly appreciated :)

P.S. I know that it is possible because there are people (that I can’t get hold of) that have the exact app on the exact phone.

    download is larger than your device's cache partition

    -Go to Settings > Applications > All
    -Select the "Google Play Store", clear the cache and data.
    -Then go to "Download Manager", clear the cache and data.
    -Restart your phone and try downloading

    The only thing I can think of doing is to root your phone, install Titanium Backup Pro, uninstall some carrier and unused apps and files from your phone to make room to install Asphalt, install GL2SD (which stands for Gameloft to SD) and have it transfer the data files to your SD card, and then reinstall any apps and/or files that you need. Titanium Backup allows you to make a backup of installed apps, data, and settings, so you would be able to restore any apps that you wish and need at any time. This way you don't have to pirate any apps.
