Did you know that the Goomba wasn’t always set to appear in the original Super Mario Bros.? Originally the Koopa Troopa was supposed to be the first enemy players were set to encounter in the landmark title, but testers felt that they were too complicated. So, a simpler enemy was created: the Goomba. What do you think about the Goomba’s contribution to the Mario series? Was Koopa Troopa too complicated of an enemy to face off against? Let us know your thoughts.
Thanks Ian for the tip.
