Racing games have always been popular, and there are quite a few good ones out for Android. Whether your racing cars, trucks, motorcycles or even boats, there is a game for you. For this list we picked 5 games we thought stood out from the rest. Without further ado, here are the Top 5 Android Racing games…
Reckless Racing lets you tear down dirt roads or asphalt in several cool looking vehicles. This games a bit different from the others as it’s a “dirt-road” racing game, and the viewpoint is from the top. The graphics are really slick, and you’ll get to race against the likes of Bubba, Otis, Lurlene, and even Cletus! It has online leaderboards, and you can also trade “ghost races” with other players. There are 3 different modes of play as well with Dirt Rally, Hot Lap time trials, and Delivery time trial. It’s a fun racing game, and it comes in a Lite, and Paid versions.
2. Drag Racing
If you’re a fan of Drag Racing, you’re really gonna dig Drag Racing for Android from Creative Mobile. The controls are very simple, and realistic. You also get over 40 cars to choose from and its multiplayer so that’s a huge plus for this kind of game. It’s a very popular game, and has well over a million downloads. You can get Drag Racing for Android for free in the Android market.
Gameloft has several nice racing games on their site, but the Asphalt series has always been the best. In Asphalt Adrenaline you’ll get 12 tracks, and a whopping 42 different cars. They’ve got Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Aston Martins, and a lot of other cool rides to choose from. The career mode is pretty big as well, with 11 leagues and over 55 events. As with all great car games, you can tune up your ride, add rims, decals, and more. You can grab Asphalt 6: Adrenaline from Gameloft’s site for 4.99.
The Need for Speed games have been popular on consoles for years, and this Android version is great fun as well. In Shift you get to choose from 20 cars like the Lamborghini Gallardo, Pagani Zonda, and the BMW M3 GT2. There are 18 tracks spread out all over the world, and as always your cars are highly customizable. There are three modes of play with quick race, and career mode; both modes have three settings for difficulty. There isn’t a free version available at this time, and the full version is 4.99 in the Android Market.
Drift Mania Championship lets you drift around the corners, just like the pros do. There are four vehicles with different specs, and 2 unique race tracks. They have global leaderboards as well, and the top 100 scores get posted on the games website. Personally, I liked the highlight/replay system; it was great to be able to replay some of my best moments. They have a lite version, but the paid version will give you 7 vehicles (instead of two), and 5 tracks.
