Real Racing is one of the more authentic racers on Android, and you can give it a shot for free. There's more reason than ever to take a look now that the game ahs been updated to version 1.2. The developers have made a ton of improvements, including adding licensed cars from more manufacturers.

Between all the new game types and events introduced in this update, there are over 180 new races to complete. That gives you plenty of opportunities to earn some cash rather than pump in real dollars. Here's the full changelog from the update:

  • New manufacturers – Bentley and Mercedes-Benz
  • New event type – Time Trial!
  • New Clean Race and Daily Race Bonuses
  • New progression system
  • Improved graphics
  • 180+ new events!

Real Racing 3 is a nice game with a few annoyances. The graphics are slick, the car selection is killer, and the races are varied. The only issue I've had is the somewhat lacking physics, but that's pretty common in mobile games. There are plenty of in-app purchases in Real Racing 3, but you can play at no cost after downloading 1.2GB of data.
