Five... great iPhone racers

LilRacerz Pro Rally

RH Numbers

This top-down iPhone racer has lots of retro-cool and is terrific fun. With track names like Silverphone and Dayphona, it’s clear the developers have a warped sense of humour, too, which is always good. The steering can be tricky to master, and you’ll sustain damage when you crash, limiting your ability to progress. You’ll also have to unlock tracks and cars one by one. But it will suck you you in until you wonder where the hours have gone.

The joy of Real Racing 2 HD is in its detailed graphics, terrific soundtrack, and brilliant physics engine. Climb into the driver’s seat for a Quick Race or play in Career Mode and work your way up from rookie. With 12 tracks, 48 cars, and online gameplay you won’t get bored.

DrawRace 2 HD

RH Editor's Choice

It’s another top-down racer, but DrawRace 2 HD is very different to the others here. Instead of controlling the car, you draw a route around the track with your finger. Slow down entering corners and accelerate out of them and along the straights. Pick the right line and you’ll win. If not, it's back to the drawing board. The graphics are gorgeous and the soundtrack’s not bad, either. Brilliant fun.
