Title: Nintendo Mario Brothers console game
Medium: Screen Shot
The Goomba is an enemy mushroom character in the console game Super Mario World. Goombas are the most common and the easiest enemies to defeat in Super Mario. They can be killed by just jumping on them with your character.
Even though Goombas are the most common enemies in Super Mario World, they were only added to Super Mario Bros just before it got released. The game testers complained that the game’s first enemies where too strong to defeat so the developers responded with Goombas making the game more challenging and fun. Unfortunately the game was too big to add the characters but they soon solved the problem by reducing the Goombas animation to two frames only and by using the same two frames throughout the game.
