[Community Showcase] Fake Mario Kart being sold on the App Store

TLDR;

A new game called Mole Kart is now available in the Apple app store for the iPhone and iPad. Originally called Mo Er Kart, the title is suspiciously similar to Mario Kart. But there’s more to it.

Mole Kart is practically identical to Mario Kart, just with cheesy mole characters. The stages and overall gameplay are pretty much direct rips. Check Out This Trailer

Shanghai Taomee Network Technology, the developers, didn’t put much effort into being discreet with this blatant copy. Since Nintendo has no plans of releasing any iOS games, Mole Kart will sell fairly well as a substitute since a knockoff is better than nothing is for those who want something cheap and similar.

Nintendo, on the other hand, won’t be too happy with this or with Apple for approving the app, and are probably already filing a lawsuit and will see that they win the case.
