So you've beaten the Evil King Koopa and saved the Princess have you?
Well, what is next?
What is this New Quest the Princess Speaks of?
Well, the new quest is basically the exact same quest you just did but
with a few slight tweaks to make the game a little more challenging.
The Great Goomba Switch:
The most obvious tweak, and the tweak you will see within a few
seconds of starting your new quest is;
ALL Goombas have been replaced with Buzzy Beetles.
As seen in the following screenshots.
This Goomba/Buzzy Beetle switch does make the game a little more
For one thing Buzzy Beetles are much harder than Goombas. Excuse the
Buzzy Beetles are even harder then Koopa Troopas. They are just like
them in the sense when you jump on them they go into their shell,

The High Score!
Sorry people who want to replay the game over and over to get the
highest High Score in history. When you do the new quest your Score
meter goes right back to 000000.
So be on the look out when you play the second time around. More
enemies, and harder at that, as well as smaller platforms.
It is nice in that Nintendo did make the game slightly harder the
second time around.
It is also nice the game doesn't just end and make you reset the game.
Go ahead, try and beat the game over and over again. See how many
times you can save the Princess without dieing.
