Touch Racing 2 has had a silly amount of downloads on iOS, and it's now out on Android too

Touch Racing 2 has had 2 million downloads on iOS. That's a lot of downloads. Which is fair enough, because the game's pretty darn solid. There are loads of modes and tracks, tons of upgrades and cosmetic tweaks, and strong touch-based controls - all of which you can see in our hands-on video of an earlier iOS build. Fancy taking Touch Racing 2 out for a spin? Grab it via the links below the trailer. [App Store link][Google Play link]  …


Hands-on with Proun+, the frantic and flipping fast futurist racer

Hands-on with Proun+, the frantic and flipping fast futurist racer

Proun+ is really fast. Really really fast. “Just how fast is 'really fast'?”, you ask. Ridiculously so, I respond. It also sports a fetching Futurist look, and though its art style occasionally gets in the way of the gameplay, it's quite beautiful in motion. Click play on the video below to see how I got on with it.…


Here's a sneak peek at upcoming EA Mobile racer Need for Speed No Limits

Here's a sneak peek at upcoming EA Mobile racer Need for Speed No Limits

EA Mobile has announced that it's releasing a brand new mobile Need For Speed 'soon'. That means you can quite safely expect it to look great, play okay, and require much tilting of your respective devices as you drive at dangerous speeds in an urban environment. The game is, rather unsurprisingly, in development by Firemonkeys - famed for releasing one of the most expensive free games to hit a mobile device ever - Real Racing 3. If you're feeling the need for speed yourself, why not watch the ridiculous trailer in which Ken Block does what he does best - driving a car really, really fast.…

Road Racer trailer shows Android hill climber's core gameplay, early access alpha available now

Blue River Arts has just popped over a trailer for its new Android racing game Road Racer. In it you can see the low poly art style and bright colour palette, as well as the fundamentals of what you'll be doing in the game moment to moment. A hill climber, it's your job to drive up extremely steep hills as quickly as you possibly can, throwing in a few tricks here and there for good measure. There's an infinite number of courses available to play, loads of upgrades to purchase for your vehicle, and even the odd virtual pet or two. Here's what it looks like in motion. Feel like giving it a go? You can grab an early build of the game on Android right now, for free, on the link below. [G…


Hands-on with Motorsport Manager, the super slick game of motoring management

Hands-on with Motorsport Manager, the super slick game of motoring management

I'll get this hands-on preview off to a flying start by saying the following two things; 1. This hands-on is longer than most.2. That's mostly because I didn't want to stop playing. The game is still a little way out from being released, and with this TestFlight build I played there were a handful of very minor tweaks to be made, but these trifling issues aside, I don't think I've played a deeper, better looking, more compelling management game than Motorsport Manager in years. I waffle on enough in my preview, so click play below and check it out.…


Hands-on with Rush Horizon, the endless-racer for nineties arcade fans

Hands-on with Rush Horizon, the endless-racer for nineties arcade fans

AppSpy was first on the scene for coverage of Rush Horizon, and with good reason: the game looked like a slice of sun-drenched arcade racing in the promo materials we were sent. Now that I've been hands-on with the game, I can confirm that Rush Horizon absolutely delivers on its promise of nostalgic-yet-modern arcade racing, inspired by the gaming greats from the eighties and nineties. Rad Racer, Out Run, Hang-On, Ridge Racer: there's a bit of everything in here, and since this is an endless-racer, there's a spot of Temple Run mixed in too. Rush Horizon is currently in soft-launch, here's my early look at the game.…

Tackle Le Mans in the latest Real Racing 3 update

Real Racing 3 now lets you tackle the ultimate test of motor racing endurance in its latest Le Mans update. Giving you access to the track made famous by the 24 hours prototype race, this new mode throws up plenty of challenges for you to conquer on the road to becoming the Le Mans champion. Of course, while Le Mans is famous for its 24 hour endurance race, the game won’t expect your battery to last for a full day. Instead, you can challenge next generation prototypes like the Audi R18 e-tron Quattro and Toyota's TS040 Hybrid in shorter races which let you cruise around the circuit as the sun goes down. On the social side, four players can now compete together split-screen using b…

Sonic & All Star Racing Transformed goes free-to-play on the App Store

Sega’s mascot-filled Sonic & All Star Racing Transformed has just removed its 69p / 99c entry fee, letting you get its freemium-styled content for, well, free. The shift to free isn’t completely out of the goodness of Sega’s heart of course. In-app purchases are still in place to grant access to new characters, and let you buy in game currency to speed up unlocks. Sonic & All Star Racing Transformed is a fun racer that let you whizz around iconic locations from various Sega franchises. Speeding through gates transforms your kart into a new type of vehicle depending on the terrain ahead. You'll transform into a speedboat to skipping across the waves, and morph into…


Comic book racing game SXPD: The Rookie is coming to iPad this May

Comic book racing game SXPD: The Rookie is coming to iPad this May

Blending a comic book story with fast-paced motorbike racing, SXPD: The Rookie is the new game from non-profit publisher OneBigGame. Directed by Earthworm Jim designer Dave Perry in collaboration with Little Chicken Games Company, SXPD’s gameplay draws inspiration from the classic ZX Spectrum game 3D Deathchase. Taking the handlebars of an SXPD police bike, you race through the streets of the new 52nd American state of New Royal, trying to take down outlaws with missiles and machine guns. The black-and-white 3D tracks that your bike speeds around could have fallen straight from a comic book panel, with occasional flashes of red and blue colour injecting some colour into the procee…

Jetski racer Riptide GP2 currently on sale for 69p / 99c

Riptide GP2, Vector Unit’s fast paced jetski racer, is currently on sale for 69p / 99c on the App Store. Riptide GP2 has you speeding around aquatic tracks, pitting your skills against the AI - or up to four players online - in a series of aquatic races. Beating the later tracks demands judicious use of your jetski's boost system, which can only be charged by performing stunts off each track's many jumps.  An XP system lets you level-up your rider and jetski as you work through Career mode, while the optional decals let you customise your water-spraying ride to suit your tastes. We really enjoyed Riptide GP2 when we reviewed it last year, thanks to its frantic gameplay a…
