There are hundreds of games available from the Google Play Store, so finding the best ones is a challenge.

Instead of wasting your time, data, or money, download one of these 15 and we guarantee you’ll have fun.
In closing, these are some of the most visually stunning, exciting, best, or just outright fun high-octane racing games on Android. You might find an old game or two on the list, but that only means that they’re still great all these years later.
Asphalt 8: Airborne (and Asphalt 9)
Our first pick and still my favorite racing game to date is Asphalt 8: Airborne. And while the newer Asphalt 9 Legends is pretty amazing, I still love 8.
Asphalt 8 is a little different from older Gameloft titles. It does away with all the simulator aspects 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 arcade and multiplayer modes, and the career mode is solid too. Build a reputation and become the best racer in town.
You can also try Asphalt Overdrive, which is more of an endless racer. It isn't quite as fun, but still worth considering.
Those with an older device that can't play Asphalt 8 or 9, download Asphalt Nitro. It's made for budget or low-end devices that can't handle the high-end graphics. Another good option is a game called City Racer.
