3. Drift Mania Championship 2 Lite
Drift Mania Championship 2 Lite is a game with incredible graphics that focuses mainly on drifting. All the tracks of the game are set in a pattern that allow you to drift at the turns. The game has the controls of forward arrow button allowing for acceleration, back arrow for brakes, right and left arrows for turning in those directions, and spacebar for the hydraulic handbrakes. The game’s graphics are simply mind blowing and, and the large collection of tracks for drifting makes the game all the more better. You also get the chance to compete in the in-game tournaments where you can drift against other cars, trying to reach the finish line first with the maximum drift points. The only downside that this game seems to have is its large size of about 300 MB.
4. Final Ride
Final Ride is based on a pretty interesting concept actually. In this game, you get the top view of the cars and the road, and you have to navigate your car and save it from hitting the other cars on the road. As soon as you hit any of the other cars, your car explodes and it’s game over. This is where it gets interesting- the game does not have any brake controls for slowing down or stopping the car. The car that you are driving keeps on going at a higher and higher speed with infinite acceleration. To navigate the car, use the up and down arrows. Exclamation marks on the right side of the screen keep you informed of any incoming traffic.

5. Road Racing
Road Racing is the most lightweight game on this list and it has the simplest graphics. But that does not necessarily mean that this game is bad, in fact it is pretty darn addictive! When you launch this game, you are presented with the top view of a circuit track. You have to navigate your car around the track in the least possible time. The game has touch friendly controls on either side of the screen if you are on a touch device, and if you are using a standard device, the game allows you to control the car by up, down, left and right arrows which allow you to accelerate, decelerate, turn left and right respectively. There is also a timer at the top right which keeps ticking away, thus you can keep track of time. There are also obstacles in the track that slow you down if you hit them. You can choose the number of laps for the race in the main screen of the app.
