[Update: Trailer Added] E3 2013: 'Trials Frontier' Announced for Mobile

Two new Trials games are coming in 2014, Trials Fusion and Trials Frontier. The latter of which is coming to mobile exclusively, Ubisoft revealed at its briefing this afternoon at E3...

The Crew is a slick-looking open-world racing game that's set to hit Xbox One and PS4 in early 2014. Publisher Ubisoft just finished demoing it for the first time at its E3 2013 press briefing, focusing on its cooperative features that allow players to band together and take down opposing cars. As we've been slowly coming to expect from any game reveal at E3 this year, The Crew will incorporate a "second screen experience" that lets users customize their cars with a mobile device before they take them out on the track in the game proper. ..

WWDC 2013: Anki Debuts 'Real World' Robotic Car Game, 'Anki Drive'

At the WWDC 2013 keynote, app developer Anki took the stage and debuted a bluetooth-powered app called Anki Drive that pairs with robotic cars, giving them the ability to drive around a printed race track. According to the keynote, the cars know where they are and can react to obstacles in real time. ..

Based on the new movie Turbo from DreamWorks Animation, Turbo Racing League [Free] is, as it says on the label, a racing game, developed by the good folks at PikPok, who are known for developing very fun pick up and play games like Into the Dead and Super Monsters Ate My Condo. While Turbo Racing League isn't quite at the same level as those two, it's nevertheless a very fun, competent racer...

Attribite seems to have an obsession with food. But they also seem to love mashing up familiar ideas and coming away with great iOS games. Their first release was Save My Bacon [Free], an endless runner that takes the Tiny Wings [$0.99 / $2.99 (HD)] tap-to-dive mechanic and tosses in some TNT and pigs with wings, and now they have the dairy-laden racing puzzle game 1968 [$0.99]...

Dubai is coming to Real Racing 3 [Free]. Or Real Racing 3 is going to Dubai. One of the two. Anyway, EA's super sleek racing video game is receiving new content set in Dubai as some point in the near future. You can get your first look at it via this very teaser-y trailer, which we've also included below. Spoiler: it has cars and sun and loud engine noises along with some sneak peeks at what seems to be some new cars to unlock...

There was a time when pretty much every movie tie-in game was just plain awful, but for some reason in the mobile gaming world there have been quite a few really good ones. Games like Temple Run Oz or Fruit Ninja Puss in Boots take an already proven formula for a game and weave the movie theme around it to make a natural fit...

Djinn Works are like the Kings of simplistic "stickman" games. They've put out some incredibly popular titles over the years, like the Rope'n'Fly and Line Runner series, as well as various sports that these stickmen compete in like Stickman Games or Stickman Base Jumper. Stickmen have all the fun, I guess. It's hard to pinpoint exactly why these games continue to do so well in the charts, as the App Store is filled with such similar titles, but for whatever reason people can't seem to get enough stickman action...

Last week we told you that a new update was heading to Real Racing 3 [Free] which added two new vehicles from Chevrolet, a new "Hunter" mode, and more than 100 new events to play through. Today that update has gone live in the App Store...

Just last week we posted a new trailer for the Phase 3 update for the futuristic racer Repulze [$2.99], and it seems the Apple approval process went rather smoothly as the update popped up in the App Store today...

When Pixelbite launched their futuristic racer Repulze [$2.99] at the beginning of the year, they had something of a one trick pony on their hands. We really enjoyed it in our review, but it turned out to be more of a time trial type game rather than a full-blown traditional racer. It focused on doing just one kind of thing, and it did it really well. Still, there was a good portion of interested gamers that loved the look and feel of Repulze but yearned for something more substantial...

Free to Play Version of 'Need For Speed: Most Wanted' With Time Shifted Multiplayer Appears in China

Quick, to the speculation station! Our pals across the pond at Pocket Gamer spotted something curious while surfing the Chinese App Store: A new-ish version of Need For Speed Most Wanted [$6.99] titled "Need For Speed Most Wanted OL" has launched (and is currently their #1 free app) which not only has all sorts of free to play trimmings but also sports the same time shifted multiplayer found in Real Racing 3 [Free]...

'Real Racing 3' Review - Vastly Raising the Graphical Bar While Adding Loads of Timers and IAP

In the life of the App Store, the original 2009 release of Real Racing [$2.99 / $4.99 (HD)] was a massive turning point. As mentioned in our review, both the graphical quality and the "feel" of the game were unlike anything else available at the time. Almost a year and a half later when Real Racing 2 [$4.99 / $6.99 (HD)] hit, we questioned whether or not it was "the perfect iPhone game" in our review. Fast forward two more years and tonight Real Racing has officially turned into a trilogy with the release of Real Racing 3 [Free]. Everything in the game is better than its predecessors, except how much you'll need to fork out if you want to play it like you may have played previous installments in the series- Or essentially any racing game you've ever played before...

'Real Racing 3' Tips on How to Spend as Little Real Money as Possible

Firemonkeys' Real Racing 3 [Free] is almost upon us, and whether you love that it's free or you hate that it isn't a buy-once-play-forever title, it's going to require a bit of strategy to get the most gameplay out of the title while spending the least amount of money. Managing timers in free to play games can almost be a mini game themselves, and intelligent repair scheduling and car purchasing can significantly mitigate how much time you spend waiting versus how much time you spend racing. While its US release is still a few hours out, now is the time to absorb some strategy on how to spend as little real money as possible while playing the game...

I always end up surprising myself with what games I end up really clicking with on iOS. Despite not even being a full-blown racing game, I've been dumping a ton of time into Pixelbite's Repulze [$2.99]. It was more a time trial game than anything, but with its killer sense of speed, fantastic visuals and great controls it was one game I had a hard time passing up on when I'd be flipping through my iPhone's home screens. I actually kind of appreciated the fact that Repulze was so laser-focused on doing just one thing, and doing it well. It's the same reasons I keep coming back to games like Temple Run 2 [Free] or Doodle Jump [$0.99], even though games in similar genres might offer more features or content. I think I'm just an arcade gamer at heart...
