Joe Danger

Before No Man’s Sky, the indie studio Hello Games was best known for its work on the Joe Danger series. In them you play as the stuntman Joe Danger, whose daredevils are now playful.

You will work your way through an extensive career mode, earning stars and unlocking new characters as you go. It’s all bursting with personality, and everything from the visual to the physics system is polished to perfection.

Likewise, the runner’s spinoff Joe Danger Infinity could just as easily have ranked on this list.

Hill Climb Racing 2

Publisher: Fingersoft

Available at: iOS + Android

Genre: Racing

Hill Climb Racing 2

Hill Climb Racing 2 is a fantastic follow-up to Fingersoft’s chaotic 2D races. It serves up a great mix of silly humor and destructive arcade fun with tons of upgrades to each of the game’s weird and wild vehicles.

The physics system is deliberately ridiculous, though you will gradually learn to master challenging jumps with relative ease. The courses are all quite different, from farms to snow-capped mountains.

To top it off, the character customization is varied and surprisingly extensive, offering a range of fun costumes to collect.

FRZ Racing

Available at: iOS + Android

Genre: Racing

FRZ Racing

FRZ Racing is a retro racer in comic style that allows you to drive through different tracks, check where your car is driving, collect coins and more. This racing game has a top-down point of view, which changes things a bit. Sometimes there are even bridges and earth that hide your view of the road from the top, adding more intense moments to the game.

You can find a handful of different cars and bikes, but tons of places and terrain to drive through, as well as a multiplayer mode to battle against your friends.

4

Pumped BMX 3

Publisher: Noodle cake game

Available at: iOS + Android

Genre: Sport

Pumped BMX 3

Pumped BMX 3 is much more about performing impressive stunts than running against opponents to the finish line.

It’s from the mindset behind the newly released Trail Boss, which is also excellent, and it sees you gradually master your cycling skills and complete a large number of challenging tracks.

The amount of control you have over the bike and your rider is super impressive and it just feels great to perform jumps, spins and grinds so effortlessly.

Big price history

Grand Prix Story is less a direct 2D racing game and more a management game where you try to control a car racing team! Your team needs to be the best of the best when it comes to racing – so you’ll have to manage them by training your drivers and gathering sponsors so you can afford upgrades.

It’s a simple game, but a very fun twist on the racing genre!
