Mole Kart, the amazingly shameless iOS Mario Kart ripoff

Ripoff games on iOS are nothing new, with no shortage of developers willing to trade their integrity for a handfull of dollars. Mole Kart is an almost beautiful in its utter, unapologetic, shamelessness. 

As you can see from the trailer, this is more than just an "inspired" game. Those tracks are lifted directly from Mario Kart Wii, as well as the power-up crates and special abilities. The only "original" element is the cast of characters, and even they look like twisted composites of every mascot character seen in a game since 1991. 

I can't help but be impressed by this kind of plagiarism. The completeness and obviousness of the theft is damn near majestic.
