These days people play games on Android devices more and more than ever before. Thanks to powerful processors and big screens like the Galaxy S8+ or LG G6. You don’t need a high-end phone though, and all of our games mentioned below work with most Android devices.

While you’re here, take a look at these 100 best Android apps and games.

Over the past year or two Android games have improved by leaps and bounds, and are getting better with each release. As phones get more powerful and VR improves, the games do too.

The games detailed below will keep you busy for hours and on the edge of your seat. We’re starting with Asphalt 8: Airborne, as it’s still my favorite all-around game on Android. Well, unless you consider Clash of Clans. Then, we’ll share a few other exciting games you’ve probably never heard of. Our list is in no particular order, then we have more details and links to download each racing game in the slideshow below.

Best Racing Games for Android

  • Asphalt 8: Airborne
  • Driver Speedboat Paradise
  • Racing Rivals
  • Slingshot Racing
  • Beach Buggy Blitz
  • Extreme Car Driving Simulator
  • Traffic Racer
  • Real Racing 3
  • Fast & Furious: Legacy
  • Need for Speed: No Limits

As we said above, there are hundreds and hundreds of games available from the Google Play Store. 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

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.

Download from Google Play

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

    This list is silly… Most of the games listed are microtransaction tarpits of the worst kind, which doesn’t usually correlate with “best” or even fun. The fact that high-quality games like Need For Speed Most Wanted, Rush Rally, Bangers Unlimited 2 and Colin Mc Rae were left out just for being paid, boggles the mind (especially considering the price is 1/20th of the price you need to pay to actually finish a microtransaction tarpit game)

    Thanks for best list of Racing Games apps for Android.

    I haven’t used these apps that you have shared. Currently I’m using Real Racing 3 which is pretty cool , It has nice features such as 17 real-world locations , detailed car damage, fully functioning rear view mirrors, and dynamic reflections for truly HD racing. I’m happy with it but would definitely try these ones as well.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am anxious
