And while some are decent, many of them are poor copies of others and not worth the time it’ll take to download. So instead of wasting time and data, or your money, check out this list of some of the most popular racing games available on Android today. In closing, some of these titles are a little old, but still loads of fun. Not to mention more great games are coming soon or in early 2018.
Asphalt 8: Airborne
Our first pick and still my favorite racing game to date comes from Gameloft, who has now released eight versions of their flagship racing game for Android. Asphalt 8: Airborne does away with all the simulator realism and goes for high speeds and octane boosters. All while flying down realistic streets with natural lighting, shadows, and reflection. And you can't forget the jumps and tricks. All of this is done while having some of the best graphics on a mobile device.
Asphalt 8 delivers realistic crashes and extensive vehicle damage. You'll enjoy both arcade and multiplayer modes, and the career mode is even better. Build a reputation and become the best racer. This has been my favorite game since its release, and Asphalt 7 is still a close second. It's my go-to mobile game to show off how far mobile gaming has come.
There is no Asphalt 9 yet, but instead, you can try Asphalt Overdrive, which is more of an endless racer. It isn't quite as fun, but still worth considering. We're hoping Asphalt 9: Shockwave gets released in 2018.
Those with an older device that can't play Asphalt 8, download Asphalt Nitro. It's made for budget devices. Another good option is a game called City Racer.
Asphalt Xtreme was released in November 2016 and is the same racing game we all love, taken to the dirt. It's Asphalt Off-Road essentially, and loads of fun. Not to mention some of the best graphics around. Download it now.
