The 8 Best Mobile Racing Games You’ve Ever Played

A racing game for mobile or tablet needs to be accessible and easy to play, but with a challenging element. We recently asked you what the best racing titles for small-screen devices are and you gave us loads of suggestion

Remind me later

1. Pixel Car Racer

As suggested by: Lane_5.0
As suggested by: Lane_5.0

Pixel Car Racer is a cool, retro-style arcade racing game for mobile and tablet, suggested for its “endless customisation”, additional content and regular updates. And also for that “JDM life yo”.

2. Car X Drift Racing

As suggested by: Cooper Wells

This mobile and tablet game sparked a lot of support in the comments of the original community post, thanks to its awesome graphics, range of cars, multiplayer features and mix of tracks. That’s a good combination!

3. Real Racing 3

Real Racing 3 is one of the giants of mobile and tablet racing games and it’s easy to see why. It has that addictive quality that keeps you coming back for more, with progression through the ranks, good graphics and fun handling.

4. Assoluto Racing

As suggested by: The F12 of Maranello
As suggested by: The F12 of Maranello

This was described by the person who suggested it as the Gran Turismo of mobile racing games. It’s a pretty good looking and immersive title for the small screen, with loads of cars too. The physics are also a real highlight, especially for an app-based game.

5. Thumb Drift

As suggested by: Noah Elliott

Yes, not biased whatsoever, but THIS GAME INCLUDES PHIL. And if you don’t know what ‘Phil’ is, then shame on you. In all honesty, Thumb Drift is a pretty fun little game, and is quite simple to us. It’s just a case of keeping a slide going with your thumb as long as possible, collecting a few coins along the way if you can. And that’s all there is to it. Even if you’re a rookie to racing or drifting, you can still have a good time.

6. Gear.Club

As suggested by: Mr.AMWV10

We’ve recently been having a play around with Gear.Club and found it pretty fun. There’s a lot of customisation available and the handling is decent, for a mobile/tablet game. Graphics-wise, it’s strong too and there’s a good range of cars, with new ones constantly being added.

7. CSR Racing 2

As suggested by: Buff Mission

CSR Racing 2 isn’t like some of these other games, in that it’s based around drag racing, compared to the track-based titles. But CSR 2 has more emphasis on customisation and personalisation, and graphics-wise it’s very strong too.

8. F1 2016

As suggested by: Antiprius
As suggested by: Antiprius

Most of the games in this list are free to download, with the usual in-app purchases to get you moving through it quicker. But F1 2016 is different in that, in typical F1 style, you have to pay £7.99 to initially download it. For what you get, though, it’s a great game, with nice graphics, realistic handling and lots of cool features. The person who suggested it even said “it just feels a cut above all other mobile games”. High praise indeed.
