Top 5 iPhone Off-Road Driving Games

Best off-road racing sims on iPhone

When Qi heard about a pastime called dune bashing, it immediately conjured up a picture of 1984, David Lynch, and a lorryload of critical abuse.

Little did we realise, dune bashing (or 'desert safari' to devotees of the sci-fi film) is actually a recreational sport involving sand, SUVs, and stunts. What are the best examples of this, or indeed all forms of off-road racing games, on iPhone, though?

Put your seatbelt on, brace yourself, and prepare for Qi's Top 5 iPhone off-road driving games.

White-knuckle rides don't come much - errrrr - whiter than this high-octane fleet of iPhone off-roaders, so empty your stomach well in advance. Honestly.

The iOS engineering team behind 2XL ATV Offroad has forged a reputation for producing breathtakingly large T-shirts. Only kidding. 16 tracks, freestyle mode, and a 5-way multiplayer mode leave most of 2XL Games's competition trailing in the delightfully drawn dirt.

Mad Skills Motocross eschews the third-person perspective of its rival Dirt Moto Racing in favour of some side-scrolling, adrenaline-fuelled mechanics. Should you demonstrate a plethora of mad skills over the bumps and dips, brag about it on Facebook / Twitter. Just not to us, ok?!

Uber (or more precisely Über) means 'over' or 'above' in German. Thanks to George Bernard Shaw, über is now routinely used as a prefix in English. Including here. What marks Uber Racer 3D out for greatness then? How do realistic car physics, damage modelling, and real-time shadows grab ya'? Good.
