THE BUZZ: Wow, look—Mario Kart has come to the iPhone! At least… I think it’s Mario Kart. I mean, it has the same question mark boxes, and same types of weapons, and same graphics style, and pretty much the same courses. Hmm.

EGM’s TAKE: Actually, the game is “Mole Kart” by Chinese developer Taomee. I’m not sure what I find more disturbing—the blatant way in which this game copies so many elements of Mario Kart, or the creepy cast of characters the game features. That spooky red-haired clown girl kind of freaks me out.

Or, I guess, there’s also the reason why it’s called “Mole Kart”. That’s kind of weird as well.
