The time has long passed where the concept of playing a racing game on your phone elicited gasps of wonder. We've all grown accustomed to mobile devices being as powerful as games consoles by now.
Sure enough, you can get a whole range of racing games for your iOS device these days, whether you're into advanced simulators, slick arcade racers, or colourful karters.
Beyond that, Apple's mobile platform is home to a bunch of exciting new racing sub-genres and unlikely hybrids. Some of them don't look anything like racing games at an initial glance. Crucially, though, they nail that racing thrill.
We've picked out the best racers on iPhone and iPad for you. Disagree? Let us know your favourites in the comments below.
Coming from a developer with genuine console racer pedigree, it's no surprise that Gear.Club is one of the most exciting new iOS racer for years. It's got great car physics, top graphics, and a large roster of real life rides.
Definitely the closest thing you're going to get to Wipeout on your phone. Or any platform, it seems. This stunning anti-gravity racer was years in the making, and will have you straining to catch the awesome visuals as you race past at breakneck speed.
Remember when racing games were about fast red cars, bright blue skies, and long ass roads that just stretched off into the distance? Horizon Chase certainly remembers, and brings back those Outrun memories in style.
It might not look like any racing game you've ever played, but Data Wing is a thrilling example of the genre. Imagine a top-down racer with Lunar Lander spaceships in place of cars, and you'll begin to grasp the basics of this ingenious game.
This fast-paced driving game sees you fleeing from the cops and causing carnage in a series of open maps. Your average run will be brutally short but oh-so-sweet, which is why Pako 2 is a great mobile game.
This grittier, more spectacular brother of Riptide GP 2 proves that racing games don't have to have wheels and roads. This splishy splashy jet ski sim trades pavement for water, and let's you do massive stunts in mid-air to gain boosts.
This much beloved drag racer only cares about two things. Showing a roster of shiny cars you definitely couldn't afford in real life in the best possible light. And going forward very fast, one gear shift at a time. Luckily, it does both things very well.
This game does not do anything realistically. The vehicles are bonkers, the levels are just shapes floating in the sky, and the gameplay is a barmy mix of daredevil stunt driving and retro platforming.
