AH Awards 2013: Best Android Racing Game Of The Year


There have been plenty of Racing games to hit android over the years, and this year we saw the most ambitious ones yet. With so many different racing titles to choose from it seems impossible to narrow down the best. Games like Sonic and Sega All Stars, Real Racing 3, Re-volt, GT-Racing 2, Turbo Racing League, Re-Volt 2, CSR Racing, and Fast and Furios 6: The Game are just some of the awesome racing games to release this year, with some being paid and some being free. Although there were tons of great titles to release in 2013, they can't all win.

Runner Up: Riptide GP 2

The Runner up in this years awards is Riptide Gp 2. This was hard because its an amazing racing game with plenty of great features, intuitive controls, and lots of fun stuff like achievements and online multiplayer. It was developed by Vector Unit, and has you racing jetskis through some intense looking tracks. Things like lighting and water droplets that splash onto the display whenever you touch down onto the track, along with customizable jet skis and an insane list of tricks to perform made this game amazing. However it fell just a little short for best of the year. You can pick up Riptide GP 2 from the play store for $2.99
