Pocket Racing is one of those pass-the-time games where the simpler, the better. When you install it, you'll be welcomed by a brief tutorial -just to learn that left means turning anti-clockwise and right means clockwise- and you can start to run in any of the two available tracks with any of the four available cars. If you want more tracks and customizable cars, you should upgrade to the paid version. Some options require an additional lightweight download, nothing to care too much about. Records can be uploaded via Openfeint.
Don't expect 3D graphics, car or circuit licenses or complex physics. It's absolutely 2D, both graphically and in terms of gameplay. That's what makes it so addictive, anyone can play and master the game in minutes. Measuredsoftware has looked for an unbalanced combination between modernness and playability: this game is as retro as enjoyable... And it really looks retro!

Comments and ratings for Pocket Racing Lite
It barely can let you drive .All Im doing is going in circles!!!
its excellent n awesome , u would get addicted to this game like me if u play
I had such high hopes for this game. Pocket Racing reminds me of a old arcade game I use to play back in the mid 80s called Sprint 2. The handling in this game is just awful. Please fix the awkward controls.
The game is so good sometime i don't do my work at work i take it home.
