8 Racing game apps worth downloading

Next time you find yourself with some time to kill, like at an airport, doctor’s office, or your kid’s riveting if a little long curling bonspiel, instead of opening Instagram and double-tapping mindlessly, head over to the app store and download one of these fun racing game apps.

From silly and cartoon-ish games where you can smash everything all the time, to more realistic ones where you pamper and mod the cars like real-life racers, there’s something for everyone in this list of racing apps.

Real Racing 3

Ever wondered what it would be like to race at Le Mans? Real Racing 3 allows you to choose from 17 tracks that exist in real life around the world, like the Dubai Autodrome and, yes, Le Mans. Available on all handheld devices at the AppStore, GooglePlay and Amazon.

Thumb Drift

Thumb Drifter lets you drift cars with one digit. You can probably guess which one. It’s as simple as it is addictive. There are more than 50 cars to drive, and users can connect and race alongside friends to finally determine whose thumb is superior (without having to go to thumb war).

Asphalt 8: Airborne

Looking for something with graphics as stellar as the vehicle models available to race? Asphalt 8: Airborne is it. Find yourself in wild situations like escaping tornados or landslides, or in various terrain in North America and beyond. Battle against your friends or ”teammates” on over 70 official tracks from around the world. Also check out Asphalt 9: Legends, with more exotic machines, and Asphalt Xtreme, taking your racing to dirt tracks with wild rally machines.

Hill Climb Racing 2

Meet Newton Bill, a driver who likes to do one thing, and one thing only: drive up hill. Conquer a variety of steep inclines as Newton Bill in Hill Climb Racing 2 and defy the laws of physics on each level. Definitely safe for children.

CSR Classics 2

Taking a beat up vintage ride and transforming it to its original glory takes a lot of extra cash, but in CSR Classics 2, you can build your dream car digitally. Pick from favourites like a Plymouth Superbird or Shelby Mustang GT500, turn it from a hunk of junk into a shining podium winner, and drag race it against other retro rides. The initial game is free to download, but expect to pay for certain mods and upgrades. That’s how they get ya’!

Traffic Rider

Imagine weaving through traffic on a motorcycle, tailing closely behind the car in front and then zipping by when you get a gap. Sounds as exhilarating as it is illegal. Traffic Rider is a first-person fantasy racing game where the object is to maneuver your bike through highway traffic without getting caught by the authorities.

Moto X3M

This 2D motorcycle game offers 75 levels of fun, and despite its simplistic design is actually one of the most addictive on the list. Unlock a variety of bikes as levels are passed, and access different terrain and obstacles throughout the levels.

Angry Birds Go!

Whether it was you or your kids who first became addicted to firing angry exploding birds at green pigs in order to score points, the grumpy fowl and their latest app are sure to capture your attention and a bit of your iPhone’s precious storage again. The Angry Birds are still after those pesky pigs–though you can race as a bird or a pig–but this time, are in a downhill race on Pig Island in a game that’s arguably more fun than the original.
