As far as i know, in kitkat apps are restricted from accessing other folders in sd card. but they can read and write data to their own folders in SD card isn't it? so y am i unable to move all the data to sd card? like in asphalt or something, cant that app move the data to its own folder in the SD card?

Yeah that's not possible .Its how it is....only apk move to SD card not the app data. You shud just root and then use Folder mount

Low end phones are much better with root access

pre installed apps are usually placed in system folder
the updates of those apps can be moved to sd card using link2sd
in order to move the entire app to sd card, the system app should be converted to user app

heard about another app called folder mount with about the same usage, but personally haven't tried it yet
