Racing games are known to be very self-explanatory. Drive a car (or character) and race to the finish line ahead of the computer or other players. Racing games are sufficiently and straightforward. The Play Store has several excellent alternatives, since this is another genre that lends itself nicely to smartphones. Here on this list, I have provided the best racing games for your Android device.
Asphalt 9: Legends
Asphalt, a long-running mobile racing game, has reached its ninth generation. Asphalt, widely regarded as one of the best racing games, does an excellent job of promoting current smartphones with its collection of jaw-dropping hypercars. The ultimate aim is to become a street racing legend, and you should have the adrenaline addiction to see it through. You’re only restricted by the game’s freemium mechanisms, which urge you to pay more.
It does contain stunning visuals, incredible driving scenes, and other visual treats. Asphalt 9 is definitely a sight to behold, particularly if you have a high-resolution display on your phone. Additionally, there are several automobiles to pick from, and you may modify them as well! Races against the AI and other players will keep you engaged and amused.
Additionally, it is a free-to-play game with microtransactions. Overall, this is what one would anticipate, and no one should be surprised. Nonetheless, Asphalt 9 performs admirably in spurts.
Data Wing is a fun, straightforward racing experience with a narrative, stunning Tron-inspired graphics, and a straightforward idea. It’s basically excellent for any ’80s/retrowave enthusiast, including myself, but I believe that everyone may enjoy it. Additionally, the audio is rather good.
The plot revolves around piloting your data wing across several racing courses at the Mother’s request, an AI who does not appear to be completely right. Your primary function in “life” is to transport data from one location to another, and you are extremely disposable. It is hardly the most inspiring narrative, but it will suffice.
The touch controls are excellent, and the levels are visually stunning. You’re likely to complete Data Wing quickly, but it’s pleasant to return and play it again. This game has a great replay value. To put it bluntly, Data Wing is fantastic and well worth buying up. Best of all, it’s absolutely free, with no advertisements or in-app purchases. Therefore, hurry up and give this game a try.
GRID Autosport takes things a step farther than Asphalt 9. Grid boasts jaw-dropping visuals, frantic driving action, and incredible thrills. A console port was created by the excellent team at Feral Interactive (well-known in the Linux gaming community).
Perhaps a steep entrance cost, but this is a one-time purchase. Additionally, you receive all DLCs. For ten dollars, you’ll have access to one hundred vehicles and one hundred levels, each with a variety of control and difficulty settings to fit your playing style. It’s a graphically demanding game, and Feral is only compatible with a select number phones. If it isn’t accessible on the Play Store, your phone is probably incapable of handling it.
Grid is aimed towards racing game lovers, particularly those who are frustrated by freemium techniques like those found in Asphalt 9. There is much to be said about a hefty upfront cost.
Mario Kart Tour
For better or worse, no list of racing games would be complete without Mario Kart Tour. Mario Kart is a household name when it comes to racing games, and has long reigned as the genre’s monarch. When it finally made its way to mobile devices not long ago, there was jubilation. That was eventually tainted by some of Nintendo’s mobile tactics, but that is a story for another day.
Apart from the fact that it’s Mario Kart, there’s not much to say about Tour. Racers may gain new drivers, karts, and badges by racing with their favorite character on terrain inspired by real-world locations. However, microtransactions are completely free to use.
Rally Fury: Extreme Racing
Rally Fury: Extreme Racing has been around for years, so you might be shocked to find that it recently received an upgrade to version 1.77 on March 5, 2021. Often overshadowed by the flashier titans of mobile racing games (Asphalt, GRID Autosport, and CSR Racing, to name a few), this enjoyable, under-the-radar racer is an ideal addition to the racing game enthusiast’s armory.
To win in Rally Fury, you’ll need to strike a balance between steering, acceleration, braking, drifting, and boosting. You may switch between touch screen and motion controls at any moment via the menu. Unlike several contemporary racers, Rally Fury does not follow the one-touch racing paradigm, which is a significant advantage! I mostly used touch screen controls and discovered them to be straightforward and intuitive with some skill and elegance.
Riptide GP: Renegade
Assume you enjoy racing games but aren’t a fan of automobiles or cartoon characters. Then perhaps you’ll enjoy Riptide GP: Renegade. The difference between this and other racing games is that you’re riding futuristic, high-speed hydro jets. Rather than a road or something like, the rivers serve as your route. I’m in.
In Renegade, you’ve been kicked out of the Riptide GP league and forced to make a career racing illegally. Navigate city canals, flooded ruins, and more while dodging police. The longer you play, the more cars and personalization possibilities you’ll unlock. Assemble a squad and take on amusing bosses.
I admit that I’m a little prejudiced, but I grew up with Sonic the Hedgehog. As a result, I was instantly fascinated when I saw Sonic Forces. While I was never a fan of Team Sonic Racing or Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, I was intrigued by Forces since it puts the anthropomorphized animals in their own go-karts.
While it’s absurd to watch Big the Cat keep up with Shadow, it’s still a fun game that allows you to race other players as your favorite character (once they’re unlocked). There is, however, more to it than racing. Much like in Mario Kart, you may use traps to your advantage and evade the ones your opponents place for you, all while attempting to reach the finish line first.
