Mo Er Kart: Mario Kart Clone Racing To App Store
Imitation is indeed the sincerest form of flattery. Then there's blatant theft.
Apple's iPhone and iPad have seen a fair amount of clones. Case in point, Capcom's MaxPlosion, a rip-off of Twisted Pixel's Splosion Man.
Now comes word that Chinese developer Taomee is ready to unleash its own version of Mario Kart onto the App Store called Mo Er Kart.
Thing is, the company didn't set out to create a new game inspired by Nintendo's kart racing series. Instead, it blatantly yanked levels from Mario Kart Wii and shoved them into the game.
Just watch the video. Not sure if this title will see a release, but given the Wild West (almost) anything goes nature of the smart phone industry, it's certainly possible.
