It was way back in the 70s that we first got the opportunity to take part in virtual races. Taito, Atari, Nami, and SEGA were the first to give life to this now vibrant genre of video games. Just like many kids years ago in arcades, today you can participate in high velocity races right on your mobile device. To help find the right one, we’ve created a list of the best racing games available on Android. All of them are free, and have enough excitement to burn through a thousand tires.

Nitro Nation

Racing games have always fallen into one of two categories: arcade – crazy races, or simulation – closer to reality. Although games usually fall somewhere on this spectrum, one curious subgenre has recently become popular on Android. In it, rather than driving, you have to change gears as quickly as possible. Nitro Nation is a great option to burn some rubber in drag races taken right out of Fast & Furious. [Download]

Driveline

You have to admit that all traditional racing games on the Android ecosystem are quite similar. Choosing one usually comes down to personal preference, but there are a few small differences that can help you make the decision. Driveline features the same excitement and intensity of other racing games, but it lets you choose between three different unique vehicles to hit the asphalt in: rally cars, street cars, and 4x4s.

Driving Zone: Germany

The Driving Zone saga has always strove to stay as close as possible to a true driving experience. This game stands out thanks to its amazing graphics and realistic physics. Although you can drive on roads filled with Japanese cherry blossoms flowers, we recommend the Teutonic roads. [Download]

Gear.Club

There are a lot of big names in this game. Many people dream of driving a Mercedes AMG C63S or a Lotus Elise 220 Cup, and you can make that dream a (virtual) reality with the fantastic Gear.Club. It’s a dizzying title that features a great graphics engine that can compete with other big name studios. It’s one of our favorites thanks to its elegant design. [Download]

ThunderdomeGT

Many games have you drive around urban streets and scenes filled with obstacles that you have to dodge. Not ThunderdomeGT. Here the races are more similar to Nascar, where you have to drive a certain number of laps around a circular track. It might not sound particularly exciting, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Winning each of the races won’t be easy, and you’ll have to put the pedal to the metal if you want to finish first. [Download]

Traffic Rider

Classics never die, and Soner Kara is an essential Android racing game developer. While their Traffic Racer is a legendary title on Android, Traffic Rider manages to up the ante. This time instead of driving a typical car, you’re given a motorcycle. The first person perspective will truly submerge you into the different levels, and if you want to win, you’ll have to complete a series of objectives or last as long as possible. [Download]

Real Racing 3

EA is behind the Real Racing franchise on mobile devices, and the third entry in the series takes place on some truly spectacular circuits. The scenery is further enhanced by the parade of cars that you have to compete against. It’s a technically brilliant title, although it does have an annoying micropayment system that lowers its standing a bit in our eyes. [Download]

CSR Racing 2

We return to the world of racing with a special adventure from Dominic Toretta and crew. Exciting duels between luxurious vehicles have never looked better thanks to its incredible graphics. This game looks so good that you’ll find it tough to not get pulled into the world of street racing. Plus, it managed to snag official licenses from lots of big manufacturers, so you’ll see many well known car models. [Download]

Need for Speed No Limits

The Need for Speed franchise has around since 1994, and without a doubt it’s one of the most prolific sagas in the history of the genre. It’s a game where fun comes first, a sentiment that was taken to the extreme with entries like ‘Most Wanted’ and ‘Underground’. Urban circuits and illegal racing are the strong points of the series, and that trend continues in this great game for Android. [Download]

Need for Speed No Limits

Asphalt 8: Airborne

Gameloft has made some pretty bad games, but the Asphalt saga is one of the most legendary series on Android. The games are inspired by other franchises like Burnout and Need for Speed, so you can rest assured that they’re action packed. We’ve chosen Asphalt 8: Airborne as one of our favorites thanks to its spectacular aerial style. Not only will you drive through amazing tracks filled with obstacles, you’ll also get the chance to perform some breath taking vehicular acrobatics. It isn’t every day that you get to make incredible jumps in a Lamborghini. [Download]
