New Super Mario Bros. Wii: Reformed is a 2D-platforming ROM hack that has the same controls and strategies as New Super Mario Bros. Wii, but the story follows differently. Instead, Peach is evil and Bowser is good.
The story in New Super Mario Bros. Wii is exploited a whole different way. In the hack, Peach is named "Empress Peach" and she is given Bowser characteristics. She is also the leader of the Dining Empire, an evil organization with an army resembling fancy dining utensils.
The whole plot of the hack revolves around the Irresistible Golden Spaghetti (or the IGS for short), a magical dish of pasta that was stolen by Empress Peach to grant her immeasurable power and summon the giant apocalyptic head version of Mario. She has also kidnapped Luigi and Yellow Toad and plans to feed them to the Mario Head by attaching them to a rope along with the IGS. Now that Peach is about to take over the Mushroom Kingdom and transform it into the Feast Kingdom with the help of the Mario Head, Mario and Blue Toad are the only ones left. Now they must embark on a quest in search of seven enchanted artifacts that will prevent the Mario Head from destroying the Mushroom Kingdom and defeat the evil empress once and for all. But they have only three days until M-Day, the day of the apocalypse...
Before players can begin playing the hack, there is a warning notice that will appear on-screen about the hack's content:
WARNING: The following ROM hack of New Super Mario Bros. Wii contains sponsored locations/themes, some mild suggestive content and brief flashing lights. If you are either uncomfortable with suggestive material, have epilepsy or both at once, please decide with a parent or guardian before playing this hack.
This is to give warning to players that the hack contains mild suggestive material (an example of this is the appearance of Empress Peach), levels that are named after real things (an example of this is the hack's fifth level, "Starbucks Park") and brief flashing lights, which is shown during the death and spontaneous combustion of the Mario Head. It's to make sure that people are not very timid by suggestive looks, locations do not subject under copyright and epileptic patients know when to look away from the screen, so they don't suffer from seizures.
