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

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).

Road Warriors is a lean-and-mean combat racer in more ways than one.

This racing game takes a few pages out Forza's book, but feels needlessly bulky and inelegant at times.

How to get a Bugatti Chiron in CSR Racing 2

Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: BEAUTIFUL DRAG :: Read Review »

If you've been playing CSR Racing 2 since launch, you've probably got yourself a pretty nice garage by now. Just reaching and participating in Tier 5 races means you've been privileged to drive one of the premier supercars in existence, vehicles sporting prestigious names like Lamborghini or Ferrari.

Still, if you really want to be at the wheel of the freshest thing on four wheels, you'll need to aim even higher. We're talking about the Bugatti Chiron, a car so luxurious and exclusive that you have to be rich (the price tag is over $2.5 million) and know someone (less than 500 came from the factory in the initial production run) to own one.

And yet real car enthusiasts could if they would. The Chiron boasts an insane 1,500 HP engine, capable of sending the car from 0-60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds. It's so powerful that the car actually has an engine limiter said to keep its top speed at 261 mph. Yes, you read that right.

So how can you get your hands on one in CSR Racing 2? There are two ways to nab one within the next few weeks.

CSR Racing 2 update: What you need to know about new cars, Live Race revamp and more

CSR Racing 2 was already plenty good. With stunning graphics, enough different game modes to keep people coming back, and actual multiplayer races, Naturalmotion gave gearheads something that was worth the wait.

Could it be even better, though? Most mobile games can be, and the developers have been up to more than just adding new cars to the game -- though there's been some of that too. The latest update for CSR Racing 2tinkers with the gameplay in a couple of areas and even may affect what's in your garage. We opened up the throttle to take a look.
