Play games while on the move: Latest car games on Android

Back in 2008, Lucas Ordonez lived what seemed like an ordinary existence. The 22-year-old Spanish student was an avid motorsports fan, but he lacked the suitable investment necessary to become a professional race driver and had virtually given up on racing. Besides, he was already knee-deep in trying to complete a Master of Business Administration (MBA). But it was Ordonez’ passion for virtual racing, particularly his love of Gran Turismo, that made him stand out from his peers — both off the track and eventually on it. In just a few months, Ordonez’ life was transformed from console dreamer to racing the real thing at a real race track in Europe. And Ordonez managed to do the unthinkable: go from the couch car to the race car, and win.

While this will most likely not happen to you, it could. Plus, let’s face it; racing games have come a long way in 5 years, and they are exceptional on Android. Read and learn below:


Drag Racing:

Ok this one’s pretty basic – Download this game and play the 50+ officially licensed real cars from hot hatches to American muscle and the epic Skyline, GT-R, 69′ Mustang, or the new BMW M3 series. God knows why you would want to drag race a BMW, but whatever floats your boat.


Real Racing 3:

Normally, I would make fun of the title, because the title rarely owns up to its name, but with stunning Graphics with superior quality, this is the best Racing game in the Google Play store. This game includes 45 cars from Porsche, Lamborghini, Dodge, Bugatti, and Audi, which, quite frankly, mean racing. Also, theTime Shifted Multiplayer™ (TSM) technology allows you to race other people, even when offline. Real Racing 3 creates and AI doppelgänger cars based on the race times that other people have recorded. The driving skill and style exhibited by those vehicles will correspond to the time. So if the person did well and finished quickly, their AI double will be tough to beat. If the person had a poor run, their car will sit at the back of the pack. Cool indeed.


GT Racing: Motor Academy

Pass driving tests, win races, and unlock more cars and events, proceed onward to fame. With 111 cars to buy, drive and upgrade, you can play against drivers from all over the world. You can also play locally with 6 players.  Feel free to listen to your own library of music while playing and post your best replays on YouTube to show off your driving skills.


Death Rally

While the story may be lacking in Death Rally Free, the gameplay of the game is more than enough to make up for it. Death Rally is kind of like demolition derby with special weapons. It’s the epitome of destruction and racing all in one. While it may not be the top downloaded on the market, it’s certainly a favorite among the motif of violence and car racing.


Need for Speed Shift

How can one mention racing without mentioning Need for Speed?  Upgrade, customize, and compete. Fine tune performance with Top Speed, Acceleration, Tires, Suspension, and Nitrous upgrades. Add custom details like spoilers, rims, specialized paint jobs, and body kits. Play locally with Bluetooth, online multiplayer, or “campaign mode”. I say campaign mode, although it’s more like solo mode OH MY GOLLY THE POSSIBILITIES!

Bottom line: If you are looking for a racing adventure, you can go no further. Android can deliver the best experiences of racing that there is to offer. Some free, some are pay to play, either way, spend your time looking into these titles; you will be rewarded.
