Apple continues to prove that whoever runs its approval department for iOS apps may not be paying attention. As this C&VG story points out the latest offenders is a Mario Kart rip-off called 'Mole Kart.' Available for right around $2, Mole Kart looks suspiciously like Mario Kart.
The comments on the game's iTunes product page indicate that users aren't fooled. One reviewer says that the game is identical to Mario Kart in a number of ways including similar items, music, and tracks that the person describes as "exact copies." From the game's description on iTunes:
You can judge for yourselves by visiting the game's product page. The developer of the game might try to argue that Mole Kart pays homage rather than being a blatant rip-off, but the game copies way too many things to be considered anything more than a clone cash-in.. Maybe it's time for Apple to hire more people for its quality control department at the App Store.
