If you are a fan of racing games on Android, you are probably aware of the popular kart racer game Beach Buggy Blitz.
It is a game developed by Vector Unit of Riptide GP fame.
In BBB, your only real opponent is the clock, but it is nevertheless quite an entertainer, as you try to drive as long as possible, collecting the coins to unlock cars and characters, upgrades, etc, while trying to accomplish the achievements.
How would the game feel as a real racing game, where you need to put the pedal to the meal? That is what Beach Buggy Racing does. It is an upcoming game which was originally scheduled for an August release, but has been pushed back to next month, as the developers add more features to it.
Here are a couple of screenshots:
