Hot Lap League: Racing Mania!Hot Lap League is a fantastic mobile racing game inspired by Trackmania, which means it features fast-paced arcade tracks with loops and jumps, an entirely competitive gameplay experience, and online leaderboards.
The main campaign features 80 unique tracks in varying difficulties that we attempt to complete as fast as possible to earn gold medals or even beat the world record. Just like Trackmania, Hot Lap League is all about playing each track to perfection by carefully steering and using power slides to maintain momentum. Thankfully, we can race against the ghost of other players to identify the optimal routes.
The game also features daily events, weekly challenges, and even missions that incentivize us to rediscover old tracks to improve our time. In-between races, we can unlock a few new vehicles and customize them with patterns, colors, wheels, and decals. Importantly, however, all cars have the exact same stats and there’s no way to improve them, creating a highly competitive experience.
Most importantly of all, playing Hot Lap League is just good old fun, and as someone who loved Trackmania on PC, this is a perfect mobile alternative.
With up to 120 frames per second and well-designed 3D maps and vehicle models, the game looks great on newer devices. The controls are tight too, with lots of customization options, including tilt-to-steer and Bluetooth controller support.
Hot Lap League costs $4.99 on Android and $7.99 on iOS, with a few iAPs that let us instantly acquire more of the in-game currency used for visual-only customizations. It is without a doubt the best Trackmania-like game on mobile and one of the easiest recommendations I have ever made for a racing game.
