Racing games are quite successful in Android. but our top 10 is different. We only include racing games that involve circuits and not just casual racing games. Check out the best racing games, actually, released until the year 2014.

10th – Ridge Racer Slipstream (Free)

Ridge Racer is a racing game series that originated on the Playstation One. Twenty years later, here we are reviewing Ridge Racer for Android phones. Slipstream follows several elements from the series, such as fictional (but very cool) cars and arcade racing with a dash of realism. The slipstream in the name is not for nothing, in other words, it means vacuum, and that's the great mechanic of the game, taking the vacuum of opponents to overcome them. Ridge Racer has great graphics, but what defines the experience is the casual gameplay.

7º – Angry Birds Go! (Free)

Angry Birds Go is a perfect example of Rovio's creative power. The producer that, already suffering from the lack of news from the Angry Birds franchise, launched the excellent Angry Birds Go! in the beginning of the year 2014. The game that mixes “Mario Kart” with a roller car has exceptional graphics and great gameplay. There are a lot of challenges to unlock and the game even has online multiplayer. Unfortunately, Angry Birds Go! lacks the freemium aspect, with many in-app purchases and limiters. That pushed this great game into seventh place.

6º – Sonic All Star Racing Transformed (Grátis)

But of all the Mario Kart-style games on this list, none is better than Sonic All Star Racing Transformed.

Fire Monkey's flaming monkeys make their first romp by taking the third position in our top 10. The racing game produced by them and distributed by EA is one of the best “ever” Android games. Before Real Racing 3 and Asphalt 8 hit the streets, Most Wanted showcased the best of the Need for Speed ​​series on Android phones and tablets.

2º – Asphalt 8: Airborne (Free)

The second spot on our list is taken by a mobile gaming landmark: Asphalt. Since the primordial times of mobility, Asphalt already gave the air of grace, presenting simple and instant fun in a clearly arcade-racing game, in the best Top Gear style. With the advancement of technology, the game gained new modes and possibilities and today it is this mixture of several racing games with clear references to Burnout. The game's physics is “absurd” so, despite the almost realistic graphics, don't expect a simulation game. Asphalt 8 is one of the best games on Android and it reached the finish line only trailing by a tenth of a second behind our first-place finisher.
