Top 5 iPhone Futuristic Racers

Best ways to WipEout on iPhone

There was a time when racing games seemed to be dominated by carts. Or, more specifically, "karts".

These cutesy racers were blown off the track, however, when the likes of F-Zero and WipEout cruised onto the scene, delivering unbeatable high-speed thrills with a laser-powered arsenal to match.

Soon after the iPhone earned itself a place on the handheld gaming grid, hover cars and jet-powered vehicles began vying for pole position in the App Store charts. To clear up any uncertainty, we have answered the following question: what are the Top 5 futuristic racers on iPhone?

So, strap yourself in, flip down your visor, and prepare to take a ride into the future of handheld racing. GO!

An oldie but a goodie, Phaze floated onto iPhones way back in 2009. While the visuals have inevitable aged in the face of increased competition and hardware advances, there's still a lot of twisty fun to be extracted from the game's crazy corkscrews and booster pad-strewn straights. You can even listen to your own custom soundtrack as you recklessly defy the laws of physics.

Delivering accessible thrills in a handsome portable package, Chillingo's sci-fi racer sets the bar for other anti-grav racers on iOS. Swift reflexes are rewarded with progressively more elegant courses to practise and perfect, while itchy trigger fingers will find sanctuary in the Battle Arena. Definitely take this one for a test drive.

Probably the most retro-looking of our chart entries, this tilt-tastic arcade title serves up cheap thrills and immediate rewards. If you just want to race (without having to deal with an array of options, modes, or menus), Metismo's stripped-down tube rider may be just what you're looking for. Basic, but diverting.

A unique concept brought to life with a striking neon aesthetic, Forever Drive is an endless-racer that quite literally never ends. Player-created tracks are seamlessly stitched together, meaning the only thing stopping you from carrying on indefinitely is the clock. Though the in-app purchases can sting a little, it's well worth giving this stylish offering the time of day.

Our only water-based entry, this handsome jet ski racer definitely sits comfortably alongside the drifty handling of its hover car rivals on this list. Futuristic architecture blurs past as you swoosh and splash your way down the aqua-filled courses to a glorious, if soggy, victory. With 12 tracks, three modes, and plenty of stunts to perform, this is no damp squib.
