Take a look at some of the best car games in our Top 25 Car Racing Games for Android post. There is something for everyone here from tiny cars to a Ferrari, pure racing to arcade-style racing complete with rocket launchers.
Hill Climb Racing is a 2D platform game with a difference; you’re riding along in a little red car. There are six game scenes including Countryside, Desert, and Arctic. These keep things visually interesting, but where the game is most enjoyable is with new components, collecting coins and “going air”… Flying over a hill, unsure when you’ll land.
Unlike with Need for Speed, with Asphalt 7: Heat, you get to drive your dream car from the start rather than working up to it slowly. The graphics take full advantage of the graphics capabilities of your phone or tablet. There are three modes: Career, Quick Play or Multi-player. Earn reputation points for hitting certain goals that appear as you race.
Asphalt 6: Adrenaline
Download Paid App (0.93 $)
Rather than studying the best driving technique for taking corners at speed, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline is far more about putting your sports car through a controlled slide to gain extra points. As you race, you can nudge other cars into obstacles to make life more difficult for your fellow racers. Hot cars, fast speeds and no worries at all. Just what a racing game should be when you don’t want realism.
As the name implies, Reckless Getaway is about escaping the scene before you get caught. Full of spectacular car crashes, you can dodge, ram or obstruct pursuing Police cars. There are 16 levels to create some mayhem on. Collect coins as you race to score points, but totaling your car or getting caught gets a point knocked off.
GT Racing Motor Academy
Download Free App
The GT Racing Motor Academy game delivers a thrilling driving experience. Riding one of 111 cars from the likes of Ferrari, Nissan and Audi, and race around a range of tracks from speedways to urban environments. Multi-player for up to 6 racers online or locally connected. Get through tests and win match-ups to unlock features like faster cars & special features. Gameloft delivers here.
The Need for Speed series of racing titles from EA has become synonymous with car racing games. You begin NFS with only a Volkswagen Golf GTI or Mazda RX-8 to choose from, but as you progress, you’ll unlock other vehicles too. The graphics are on par with the rest of the Need for Speed series and the soundtrack is a touch above other racing titles too.
The Real Racing 3 game from EA is free to try with a number of tracks like Indianapolis Motor Speedway and a good selection of cars to climb into & drive. What some avid gamers have complained about is the sheer number of in-app purchases available for just about everything beyond that. The game itself is a lot of fun to try out. The rendering of the racing circuits looks detailed, especially on large screen tablets. To get that level of graphics, the download is 1.7GB large, so it is best to download it from a fiber line rather than a cellular network.
CSR Racing is a little different. Drag racing from 1/4 mile up to 1 mile. Pick a good licensed car, rev up and hit the nitrous at just the right moment. This game played especially well on a smartphone, but is less enjoyable played on a tablet because the game-play is quite simplistic.

With Extreme Formula, you leap into the future to 2100. Each vehicle type is powered by different futuristic energy sources: Super Gasoline, Metals Atom Heart, Energy Water or the latest Fuel. All the cars look suitably kitted out for the future with F-14 look-alike afterburners on some vehicles when you push the pedal to the floor. 10 tracks to race, but only 5 vehicles to choose between.
Reckless Racing is drawn from a top-down view which makes the cars on these dirt roads look a little like racing toys around a track. But the visuals are stimulating, so you quickly become immersed in the game-play too. 24 tracks and massive “power slides” as you skid around a curve keep things interesting. Game also plays on lower-end smartphones and tablets, so there is no excuse but to join in.
Try to become the king of the streets in Racing Live. As much of a role-playing game as it is a racing game, with this title you get to race and also acquire prime real estate at track-side. The multi-player game is where it really gets interesting though with a huge online world to delve into.
This Street Racing game has older style visuals, limited game-play options and there are some issues with running the game on newer mobile devices.
This is true aggression with 14 ferocious-looking attacker vehicles with 5 weapons to choose between, rolling around 13 maps, 4 tracks, in a winter wonderland from your nightmares. Perform car flips, shoot your rocket launcher, all while having a blast!
Free racing with Raging Thunder. 3D visuals, effective but aging now. Solid racing experience. Perfect for underpowered phones that have trouble running the latest HD racing experience.
As the game title suggests, Mini Motor Racing focuses on small-sized cars racing around motor racing tracks. The view is slightly elevated, rather than being from a top-down view. The visuals are excellent with dirt that looks like dirt, grass that looks like grass, and so on. There are no weapons in this game, just pure racing. Huge fun.
Raging Thunder 2 will see you racing along the cliff-side with only a weak wooden barrier separating you and your vehicle from a cliff dive down to the sea below. Designed for mid-level phones, with a HD version for high specification phones, this racing game has plenty of slim roads and tight turns to keep you focused as other drivers try to force you off the road.
Speed Racing is an older type of racing game that is outclassed at every turn by more modern car racing games. Give this one a miss.
This title opens up Drag Racing for the laymen, however the game-play is quite basic in execution. The drag races only last 12 seconds, so the enjoyment is over fast. Worth a spin, but don’t expect to be playing this title a month from now.

This racing title lacks the use of tilting controls, which is quite common for racing games now, and only has tough controls. The racing aspects can become repetitive.Take a look at some of the best car games in our Top 25 Car Racing Games for Android post.
