Aqua Moto Racing 2 arrives on Android’s shores

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Assemble at the starting buoy, rev your jet skis and get ready for some high-speed, seafaring fun. Aqua Moto Racing 2 is now available on Android. When it was first released on iOS the game managed to earn an impressive 85% on Metacritic. Now Swedish developer Zordix is hoping to match that success with the new-and-improved Android version.

Personal watercraft (PWC) racing games are a rarity, and it makes a refreshing change to the usual tarmac strips and snarling whips of F1. As you’d expect, in Aqua Moto Racing 2 your main mission is to win. Compete in successive races around challenging courses, unlocking and modifying PWCs as you go. There are 48 courses in all, set in sunny island locales with water bluer than Sonic. The courses are spread across 14 championships, giving you a real sense of progression as you conquer each one.

Asphalt 9: Legends review

Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: HEART PUMPING
Asphalt 9: Legends is the best of the series so far. While it may lean a little more toward the casual side of arcade racing, it's still a ton of fun and gorgeous, to boot.

You don’t need to be playing Asphalt 9: Legends, and here’s why

Posted by Campbell Bird on February 27th, 2018

Big news dropped this week as Gameloft announced they’ve soft launched Asphalt 9: Legends in the Philippines. This has caused quite a stir primarily because the Asphalt games are among some of the best-looking racing games on the App Store. Heck, you might have already started looking at screenshots and are wondering if you should make a Philippines App Store account just to check it out for yourself. Well, if you are, I’m here to tell you that you shouldn’t, and here’s why:

Disc Drivin' 2 Guide - Tips for the Seasoned Slider

Posted by Campbell Bird on February 22nd, 2018

We're all still playing quite a bit of Disc Drivin' 2 over here at 148Apps, and we've gotten pretty good at it. Now that we've spent some more time with the game and unlocked more powerups, check out some of these more advanced tips:

Switch it up on the fly

So you may know you can switch between powerups in a match of Disc Drivin' 2, but did you know you can also do it while your disc is in motion? It operates the exact same way as when you're standing still, but you've got to be quick to change your powers and use them while on the move. This is a good skill to practice, because you switching from a boost to a brake at the right time to prevent a falloff could make the difference between winning and losing a match.

Disc Drivin' 2 Guide - How to Slide Your Way to Victory

Posted by Campbell Bird on February 2nd, 2018

Disc Drivin’ 2 is not your normal racer. Its turn-based gameplay and disc-based antics make for a really unique gameplay experience that might not be so easy to handle at first. Rest assured though, if you keep these tips in mind, you’ll be shuffling around the track with the best of them in no time:

Take your time

In a racing game, speed and quick reflexes are your friend, but in Disc Drivin’ 2, that’s not quite as important. In fact, rushing through your turn can easily lead to you making poor shots or invalidating all of your progress. Using all of your camera options available to you at the start of a turn is a good habit to form, and one that can make sure your prepared when you make your shot.

Blocky Racing is a funky and fresh new kart racer out now on iOS and Android

Posted by 148Apps Staff on January 18th, 2018
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Blocky Racing has zoomed onto the App Store and Google Play this week, bringing with it plenty of classic kart racing shenanigans that will take you straight back to your childhood. If you’ve found yourself hooked on games like Mario Kart or Crash Team Racing, do yourself a favor and give Blocky Racing a go.

Blocky Racing is a kart racer in its purest form. Collect power ups to unlock weapons like missiles, or shields to give yourself some cover. Stir up as much trouble as possible to scoot yourself across the finish line in first place. Anything goes here, so don’t be afraid to pull out all of the stops. Just be careful—carts can lose blocks when they take damage, and will ultimately fall apart if they lose too many.

GRID Autosport is a really, really ridiculously good looking racer, but is otherwise a pretty straightforward experience.

CSR Racing 2: How to master Live Races

Posted by Nicholas Tylwalk on August 11th, 2017

Want more games like CSR Racing 2? Then check out our list right here

Getting better at racing the AI in CSR Racing 2 is a pretty straightforward process. You run enough races with a particular car to get its shift timing down, continually improve it by buying upgrades whenever you can, and add any fusion parts you grab along the way.

Tuning adds another dimension to the whole affair, but not enough to significantly throw you off course. If you just keep plowing ahead, you'll be able to take down all the crews in the game eventually and figure out what happened to your friends' stolen cars.

The Live Race mode, however, is a different beast. In contrast to some other mobile racing games, it provides CSR Racing 2 with a true multiplayer experience, allowing you to race head to head with a live human opponent at any time (or at least any time the servers are functioning properly).
