The App Store’s Best Racing game

If RPGs get your brains bending, racers boil your blood. They spin you down the most pristine of roads, the strangest of alien avenues – the wildest of rides. Oftentimes, they are all-out guts-to-glory races to the finish line; they grind your un-manicured fingernails to fine capacitive dust; they simply have no equal for burning calories  and having fun at the same time – at least on the iDevice.

There are three ostentatious categories: the arcade racer, the simulator, and the kart racer. Which fits your fancy is up to you. My baby teeth were rooted out on Super Mario Kart on the SNES back in the early 1990’s, but before that, Roadblasters for the Atari Lynx held sway in a growing garden of race games. For those reasons, I enjoy the likes of Shrek, Crash Bandicoot, and the more stodgy racers too.
