The Best Offroad Games on Android for 2022
Howdy, gamers! Today, we’re looking at the top offroad games on Android for 2022…well, at least what we could find so far! Keep in mind that since these are just some of the upcoming Android games and not reviews, we haven’t played all of them, so our opinions may be a little bit biased towards their trailers and screenshots.
Real Racing 3
The best racing game on Android (and iPhone) doesn’t feature Mario or any of his friends. In fact, you probably haven’t heard of it. But if you love open-world racing, realistic graphics, and loads of cars to choose from, Real Racing 3 will provide everything you could want in a mobile racing game. Asphalt Xtreme: While not as good as Real Racing 3, Asphalt Xtreme is still an excellent option if you like your mobile driving games a little more arcade-y than simulation. Choosing a car is easy enough; just tap on one of the six featured vehicles to start flying around tracks made up entirely of ramps and loops with no speed limit in sight.
Hill Climb Racing 2
This new version of Hill Climb Racing is full of fresh content, and it’s a blast to play. You drive in an endless series of off-road races and try to do better than you did last time. It doesn’t take much effort to make progress; your only real obstacle is getting from point A to point B as quickly as possible. That might sound simple, but with so many different upgrades that keep changing up your ride, it’s difficult not to get wrapped up in trying out every new type of vehicle. Along with that comes tons of daily challenges and events, each with special vehicles that you need to unlock before playing them.
Merely Crossy Roads
Aha, I know what you’re thinking. Crossy Roads? What’s so special about that? It just looks like Frogger with an emoji skin! And why are you calling it ‘merely Crossy Roads?’ To be honest, I don’t really have a good answer to either of those questions.
Asphalt 8: Airborne
From Gameloft’s famed racing series, Asphalt 8: Airborne is probably one of most popular off-road racing games. You get to choose from a plethora of high-speed cars, which you can race against opponents in different locations around the world. If you like doing things in style and are looking for a mobile version of Need For Speed, then look no further than Asphalt 8: Airborne. If you’re interested, it’s worth noting that there are plenty of cool car upgrades and a decently realistic physics engine that make sure each race feels unique. So if you’re looking for an arcade-style racing game but also want something more sophisticated, then look no further than Asphalt 8: Airborne.
An immediate standout among my favorites was Alto’s Odyssey. The sequel to one of Apple’s most popular games, it continues to hit that sweet spot between challenging and relaxing. Alto must cross three deserts by hopping from cactus to cactus without falling into any of their holes (which would kill him instantly). Tap his foot once, he jumps onto that cactus, tap again and he hops to another nearby one. This freemium game has no ads or in-app purchases. It’s $5.99 at Google Play, which might seem steep but it comes with more than 50 levels—and they all take a while to finish (some took me longer than an hour!). I also like its colorful desert visuals and music.
You can play Desert Golfing in your browser or through its mobile app (it’s available for both iOS and Android). The rules are pretty simple: You have one goal, to get your ball in that hole. The controls are also extremely simple—just tap left or right to move your golf ball. Every time you tap, your ball will move farther into that direction. Every time you tap, that means you’re taking a stroke; it also means more desert land gets destroyed as you attempt to get closer to that hole. It sounds easy enough at first but if you don’t use strategy it won’t be long before your screen is filled with obstacles like cacti and sand traps.
Where’s My Water? 2
Disney has taken Where’s My Water? and made it better. The new physics engine and updated graphics really bring a lot to the game, including more complex puzzles, new characters with new abilities, and even more dynamic tricks. There are still around 100 levels that you can play through too. You’ll want to play them all as they will reward you with things like in-game currency (tokens) or even power ups that can help you solve future puzzles. Additionally, there is a fun little customization option where you can get different skins for your character (the alligator). This skin isn’t just cosmetic either–it actually changes up how the character moves through water so it helps make things more interesting.
If you haven’t already played Riptide GP2 then it’s a good idea to go ahead and download it right now! It’s free, so why not? And yes, there are in-app purchases, but they aren’t required. Rather than making gamers pay real cash for upgrades that give them an advantage over players who don’t want to pay, Riptide GP2 lets you pay with earned GP points. The only bad thing is that you don’t earn GP points fast enough to easily unlock new vehicles or purchase cool things without paying. As a result, you can expect some users will put up with some ads if they can use their earned currency more efficiently.
The creator of Rocket League wanted to bring back a modern version of Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, which is considered one of the best off-road car soccer video games. The game features a variety of cars, simple controls and great graphics. It can be downloaded from Steam or PlayStation 4 and is easy to control with a joystick or a controller. You may want to try your hand at Rocket League as it has been described as fun, exciting and action packed.
Minecraft (Pocket Edition)
There are a number of different versions of Minecraft that exist. The original version is more suitable for people who want to dig and make creations by hand, while Minecraft: Pocket Edition takes a much simpler approach. While it’s obviously not as complex or feature-rich as its PC and console brethren, Minecraft: Pocket Edition is probably your best bet if you’re looking to play an off-roading game with friends online. By being simple and easy to understand, it allows players with little knowledge about how video games work—or even about how games in general function—to enjoy themselves regardless. And because it’s playable across so many platforms—and with friends!—it makes for a good party game too.
