The only top down racer I have is Reckless Racing. There's a sequel to it here but I've not actually tried it yet: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ecklessRacing2

There's a game I've got called Mini Motor which is a bit like it and quite fun.

Our racer is almost top down Bang Bang Racing.

You do need a decently powerful phone to run it though!

Great Battles Medieval finally got a ported from Tegra to ordinary phone chipsets after 2 years of tegra exclusivity.

It's a pausable real time strategy game with rock paper scissors combat that vaguely resembles Total War. It auto pauses whenever you start to give orders and when you hit play those orders are carried out until you next give an order.

Not sure why this is a tablet game? Everything is sized fine for a phone.

Is there a problem with Google Play at the moment? It's not letting me purchase anything on there (via phone or internet)...

I've been playing this and as far as I can tell this is a normal Kairosoft game but it's free! The adverts are only kairosoft ones and there's absolutely no need to buy coins.

Retro Racing is my favourite, the guy behind it worked on a few of the amiga top down racers.

I've only had a brief go at it so far but I couldn't tell all that much difference between it and 1.

Double View - this game is a *******! You're kind of playing snake through 2 different mazes at the same time. It's great fun though the free version has way too many ads. If you'd be willing to buy it for the $1 IAP to remove ads then by all means give the free one a go as a demo.
I think the ads would quickly drive you mad if you wanted to only play the free version and you should probably pass if you don't buy games.

Flick tennis - very nice tennis game with a great swiping control method. Free with ads ($1 to remove ads). The ads are not as bad as the above game as you spend longer periods playing a game of tennis than you do a double view level so it can't display them as frequently!

Worth a go, plenty of free games out there that are good.

Walking Dead: Assault got a droid release. I'm not familiar with it (yet ) but it seems highly regarded on iOS.
