Top 5 Kart Racing Games on Android

No Italian plumbers needed

There’s a particular sub-genre of racing games that clearly stands apart from the rest. It attracts a completely different type of player to the usual simulators and aggressive arcade racers.

Yep, we’re talking about the kart racer. Ever since Mario jumped behind the wheel all those years ago, gamers have enjoyed taking control of cartoony, often recognisable characters as they race around imaginative tracks and pelt one another with outlandish weapons.

To that end, let’s consider the Top 5 kart racing games on Android.

Follow our advice to avoid any potential banana skins (or oil slicks).

Sonic fans have always been speed freaks, so they don't exactly need to be asked twice to put the Blue Blur behind the wheel of a souped-up kart. There are also planes and speedboats to race in this console-quality sequel. Not to mention some of the best graphics on Android.

This tie-in for the DreamWorks animated feature concerning a turbo-charged snail racer is an extremely polished piece of work. There's a solid race engine at its core, a range of colourful tracks to race around, and an easy-going sense of progression that will appeal to your inner kid.

Speaking of great graphics, Beach Buggy Blitz is made by the technical masters over at Vector Unit. While it looks and plays like a top kart racer, though, it's actually structured like an endless-runner. So, yep, you keep racing and battling until the time runs out.

Rovio's first stab at a kart racer has proved slightly divisive - mainly on account of that demanding freemium structure. But if you're the patient (or rich) sort, you'll love its impeccable 3D graphics, colourful art style, and appealingly intuitive kart racing gameplay.

Who would have thought that such a fat, lazy, grumpy character would make such a top-notch racer? Other than Kimi Raikkonen fans, we'd say no one. Cheap gags aside (we love you, Kimi), Garfield Kart is an extremely proficient kart racer set in a nice chunky cartoon world.
