Would You Trust a Goomba to Clean Your House?

Posted by James Newton

The uprising starts now

Goombas are so much more than their common portrayal as easily vanquished stomp cushions would have you believe: they have other skills, like cleaning the house.

That's right: someone made the inevitable leap and combined the Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner with the Goomba and created... well, the Goomba Roomba, presumably.

The video below shows the little wonder in action, along with customised Octorok and Red and Green Shell Roombas too. Just make sure you notice when they clean the house or all Hell will break loose next time you leave them alone.

Oh, and don't stomp on them. That really doesn't help.

Hehe, I would love to invest in one of these, but alas, the temptation to stomp it into oblivion would be much too strong.

Haha ! Goomba, Roomba ! Pretty sure the guy made this because it sounded similar ^^

And now I have a joke : What is the difference between a Goomba and a Roomba ? None ! They suck both !

I want one... although there isn't much space for it to roam around here. :(

Die in flaaaammmmesssssss !!!!!!! Oh ... what have i done ? :o


I much prefer the light brown version of Goombas so this one is a no-go. But the shells and Octorok look so amazingly cute. Loving it. Awesome how creative you can get with these things. :D

Shouldn't it just be GRoomba? :D

Well, all Goombas do anyway is scuttle across the ground, so this seems rather perfect. Can wait to see the first Youtube vids with someone living out their SMB fantasy with all these Roombas :D
