Game: GT Racing: Motor Academy
Buy it now from iTunes
GT Racing from Gameloft may have been out for a while, but updates since its release have made it a pretty essential purchase for the pocket racer. Looking like a high-res, ultra long draw-distance version of Gran Turismo on PSone, it's amazing how close this game is to a home console racer.
The controls can be a tad fiddly, but there are several options so you can find the best layout for you (auto acceleration, on-screen wheel and brake pedal worked best for us). With driving challenges, 6-player online racing, 107 cars from 25 real-world manufacturersand the ability to upload 3-minute replays to YouTube, there's loads here to keep you entertained.
