10 Best Racing Games for Android

These are the best racing games for Android. If you love driving full speed through winding roads or high-octane NOS boosts, these are worth downloading today. Considering there are thousands of games on the Google Play Store, sometimes it’s hard to find quality titles worth spending money on. With that said, we’ve found the best ones to satisfy your need for speed.

Whether you’re looking for ultra-realistic racing, casual arcade fun, or want to fly through the water with turbo boosts and more, we have it all covered. These games are fun and mostly free. If not, they only cost a few bucks.

As you probably know, racing games are some of the most popular mobile games because they’re easy to play. Not to mention they have some of the best graphics too. That said, certain titles require a fairly new phone, otherwise, the graphics aren’t as good. Now that we’re a few months into 2018 these are the games you don’t want to miss.

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 like the Galaxy S9, screen sizes increase, 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 for Android until Asphalt 9: Legends arrives. Here’s a quick list for those interested. Then, full details and download links are in our slideshow below. Additionally, between the new Vulkan API for graphics, and changes in Android 8.0 Oreo, games are going to get even better throughout 2018.

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 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. Instead of waiting time, data, or money, download a few from our recommended list.

In closing, these are the best, visually stunning, or fun high-octane racing games on Android. You might find an old game or two on the list, but they’re just that good. Then, stay tuned for more games throughout 2018, like the highly anticipated Asphalt 9: Legends release for Android.

Asphalt 8: Airborne

Asphalt 8: Airborne

Our first pick and still my favorite racing game to date is Asphalt 8: Airborne. We're waiting (impatiently) for the all-new Asphalt 9 Legends, which is only available on iOS right now. While we all wait, Asphalt 8: Airborne is still an amazing racing game. It does away with all the simulator realism and goes for high speeds and octane boosters. All while flying down realistic streets with natural lighting, lifelike shadows, and reflection. You get the best graphics, high speeds, and tons of cool tricks. 

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.

You can also try Asphalt Overdrive, which is more of an endless racer. It isn't quite as fun, but still worth considering. We're still hearing about an Asphalt Shockwave game, but Asphalt 9 Legends is the official game coming 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.

    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.

    My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am anxious
    about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net.

    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
