Need a break? The best way to let some steam off is to pull out your smartphone and get your gaming on for a while. Now if you really want a distraction, I will have to recommend racing games. They hype you up, put you in the zone and make you shift focus from whatever daily stresses you may have. After all, we all need a pit stop!
Those looking for their adrenaline fix can take a look at the list right below. I have put together a collection of my very favorite racing games. Of course, this is all subjective, so if you happen to like a game that is not listed, give us the tip in the comments section. Maybe fellow readers will love it! Ok… let’s race over to the games.
Angry Birds Go!
Angry Birds Go! may be cartoonish and a bit silly, but I can’t deny it’s one hell of a fun game. Think Mario Kart, but the mobile version… and with Angry Birds characters as protagonists. You can improve your vehicle and race around while blasting the competition away. It’s a much more casual approach at racing games, so it can also be a quick toilet play.

The Riptide franchise has become one of the msot popular in the mobile gaming industry. In fact, you can see these games used as a form of benchmark in many reviews, but it is much more than proof of quality gaming. Riptide GP2 happens to be one of the funnest racing games around. As you probably know, this is not your average type of racing game. Players race for the #1 spot through a water path, mounting their water jets. There’s room for upgrading, stunts and even some multi-player action.

Asphalt 8: Airborne
When it comes to quality graphics and exciting racing, very few games can enter the level of quality that the Asphalt franchise offers. You can always feel good about buying Asphalt 8: Airborne. It has millions of downloads and a sea of 5-star reviews in every app store. The cars are awesome, the maps are very well varied and the game has just enough fantasy to keep things interesting. Oh, and it’s free to download!

Need for Speed Most Wanted
You really didn’t think I would make a top racing games list without a Need for Speed game, right? Those who have the need for speed will love this title. Need for Speed Most Wanted brings the best elements of street racing – a great selection of cars, mods, extensive roads and the adrenaline of running away from the police. It’s $4.99, but many would agree that it’s worth the price.
Real Racing 3
Those who want a true racing experience have to try out Real Racing 3. This game features real cars, real tracks and the closest experience you can get to actual racing in a mobile game. The graphics also happen to be insane. True car geeks will love this game, especially considering the grand price of $0.
