I was looking through the Android Market, looking for some apps to install on our Droid Bionic tester (review coming in a few weeks), and I came across an app named Drag Racing. The stats on the game were insane (20Mil installs, 132K 5-star reviews, etc), so I decided to get it.
They bill it as “the most addictive racing game with realistic controls and 50+ cars” and they’re totally right. I got sucked in my first time playing the game, spending over an hour on it!
The premise of the game is quite simple. You start off with a car and some money. You race against others to earn money, which you can then use to buy performance upgrades, tune, and customize your car. As the game progresses, you can move into faster and faster cars.
After tricking out my SRT-4 to the nines and blowing away most of my competition, I finally traded the car in for a Toyota Supra, and now I’m working my magic on it.
It’s a simple game, but wildly addicting. And the online game play makes things even more interesting.. Race 1 on 1, drive your opponent’s car, or participate in 10-player races in Pro League.
The app is available for both iOS and Android devices. It’s a free download, but if you want to get rid of the ads, you can upgrade to the paid version.
Check it out and let me know what you think!
