Mole Kart, the amazingly shameless iOS Mario Kart ripoff


12:30 PM on 01.10.2012



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.
