Bonus Game: Turn Right
Probably the simplest game on the list. This is a bonus one, as this is neither a car or a bike racing game, but you’re still racing something. All you have to do is tap the screen and tilt your phone to the right. There’s an oval track and that’s about it.
Sounds simple right? It’s not! The game is very challenging and the speed increases after every lap of the course if you choose the Hardcore mode. Do give this a try if you like minimalist games.
