My Top 5 Mobile Driving Games
In the following article, I discuss my favourite mobile driving games.
I play quite a few mobile games that relate to driving and racing. I play them one of two devices: my phone (iPhone 11) and my tablet (Amazon Kindle Fire 10), so they are downloaded from the Amazon app store, the Google Play Store or the App Store.
5th Place - Asphalt 8: Airborne
I first downloaded this game (from the Google Play store) in October, and it took over a lot of my time. I worked my way up leaderboards, bought new cars and worked up to riding motorbikes. I was surprisingly good.
Although the game was fun and, to begin with, quite addictive, it did get repetitive. I was always racing on the same tracks, with a varying number of laps and the same cars with different levels of tuning.
However, the game was fun and I would recommend it if you like racing games. It has 297 vehicles (282 cars and 15 motorcycles) and is available on iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8, BlackBerry 10, Tizen, Windows, tvOS, macOS and Windows 10 Mobile.
Four Stars because it is repetitive

4th Place - Asphalt Xtreme
This game is quite a lot like Asphalt 8, but more off-road based. I enjoyed this game the whole time I had it. The range of cars to choose from, whilst more limited than other Asphalt games, is still quite impressive.
I found that the game had a lot of variation between levels and there wasn't constant pushing to spend money for in-app purchases. Another great thing (that has been carried over from Asphalt 8) is infected mode. Each player can catch the 'infection', which increases their speed and enables you to damage other cars, jump higher and drift better.
The game is great and I would definitely recommend it. It is available on iOS, Android, Windows 8.1 and later and Windows Phone.
Four Stars becuase it doesn't have a wide enough range of cars

3rd Place - Car Driving School Simulator
I first installed this game in December 2017. I had it for a while and uninstalled it. Then in about July 2018 I re-installed it. Then, I played it too much and uninstalled it. Then I went through the uninstall and reinstall cycle about 9 times in 2019, and about 4 times in 2020.
It was not until Lockdown #3 at the beginning of this year that I really got into this game. I finished about 80% of the levels and bought about 70% of the cars. It was fun to work my way up the hierarchy of vehicles and points and I even gave the multiplayer feature a try. I especially loved the interior of each car. It has quite a realism to it, although it does not look exactly the same as the car it is modelled after.
It was going quite well, UNTIL it got a bit too addictive. By this point I was playing a little too much and I had to delete it anyway because it was taking up too much of my iCloud storage.
My only other problem with this game is that it requires WiFi to play, and that induces a torrent of ads.

Five Stars, although it could use a few features to spice it up.

2nd Place - GT Racing 2: The Real Car Experience
I downloaded this game for the first time in October alongside Asphalt 8, and, aside from #1, it is the best I've ever played. It is nice and varied and has awesome graphics. The car interiors are so realistic and you can buy such a variety of different vehicles.
What's more is the HUUUGGGEEEEE range of cars available to purchase, which you can paint, tune and race in different circumstances. For example, you could race your Renault Laguna Coupe (remember those!) against one other, and then race your Alfa Romeo Mito GTA against 11 others.
Unfortunately, my ever dodgy tablet required factory-resetting, so I lost my progress. I have started again, and am hoping I get my way up to the top!
five stars, although not quite my favourite

1st Place - Car Parking Multiplayer
I can't remember when I first downloaded this game, or how many times I have downloaded and then deleted it. But it is the perfect game for me. It is based around several different maps: The city, the highway, the mountains, the desert, the racetrack and city 2. The maps are all connected to each other so you can drive from one side of the world to the other. There is also a game-version of San-Francisco's Lombard Street.
The real Lombard Street
To earn money on the game, you can either find any of the hidden money gifts, or complete any of the levels. To spend money, you can buy any of more than 70 cars or even one of 2 houses. There is a third house and a couple more cars but they cost real money.
The multiplayer feature is also great as well. You can choose an avatar and get into other people's cars and even buy and sell them with others.

Perfect (although it annoys me that you need real money)
