Super Mario Madness is a Mario game for the Wii U. This game has a different gameplay; Mario and other characters has three HP (like in Super Mario Galaxy but get six HP when getting a Power-Up) and goes through free-roam-styled worlds. While many classic enemies, items and Power-Ups return, there are also several new ones. It will also feature a new block called 2D-3D Block (also named Dimension Block) which switches 2D into 3D and vice versa. It will have 13 characters, which half of them must be unlocked first. Each Characters can uses 2 Power-Up each.
The enemies also have up to three HP this time, and the bosses now have six HP each, making boss battles more difficult. During a off-line gameplay, only one player can play, but in Network Mode, up to 6 players will venture together. It is only compatible for the Wii U GamePad. It will also introduce a whole new Koopaling; Alex Ember Koopa. There are one Koopaling in each Worlds (with the exception of World 4 and 8, which have two Koopalings and which will be fought first is random, and there is no Koopaling in Rainbow World) and were slightly taller than usual.
The game starts in Peach's Castle. Like in Super Mario 64, the character can roam around and choose worlds, but the player must complete World 1 in order to be able to go at World 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8. The 9th world is unlocked once all 8 Worlds are complete.
Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Wario, Waluigi, and Blue Toad must complete tasks in the Worlds. When they complete one, another will appear. When all tasks are done, a Koopaling Door will appear. The character will then face the respective Koopaling and get to another world if they win. There are also bosses in Tasks; Boom Boom, Pom Pom, Pow Pow, Petey Piranha and the others. Each characters have an ability and activate by shaking the Wii Remote or Nunchuck (for Wii U Pad non-helper player, shake the Wii U Pad).
Each character has 3 HP, and loses one if they get hit by enemies, obstacles like spikes and lava, being squished (the character will lose a life even with 3 HP in Super Mario Galaxy games) and get hit by enemies' projectiles.
Unlike popular belief, even in during 2D actions, the characters and objects retained their physical actions like in Super Mario 64.
Mario is invited by Princess Peach Toadstool. He goes through Intro Stage (based on SMB3 World 1-1) and passed though the gates. Mario has noticed that Luigi, Blue Toad, Yellow Toad and strangely, Wario and Waluigi are also invited. Toadette is also invited, but sees what's happening outside of Peach's Castle.
When a scream was heard, she quickly rushed inside without listening for Blue Toad who saying that it could be a trap. She screamed at her turn, making Mario, Luigi, Blue Toad and Yellow Toad alerted and get inside. Yellow Toad got there first but was taken down and kidnapped by Boom Boom. The other three get inside in their turn, chasing the rough henchman.
In the meanwhile, Wario and Waluigi sneaked inside and get in the basement. They wanted treasures more than everything, but when they are missing and replaced by paintings, the two greedy baddies noticed that the letter they received is a pure spam; it is written none other than Bowser. The two are angered and are about to get onto the first painting, the other three had arrived. They argured why Bowser had sended the letter to them and for what circontenses.
Suddenly, they heard Bowser's voice. "Your friends are prisonners of these painting worlds! Unless you are chickens, I dare you to get inside! My Koopalings, my son and I have traps and dangerous challenges for you! Gwa ha ha ha ha ha!!"
When the voice had ended, Yoshi arrived, angried because the evil Koopa king had stolen his fruits, and is ready to joins the five to get in the first painting. The adventure had just to begun...

Slide over an image for a quote
|Maria, Mario's cousin, is back for more feminine-type actions.
With her Heart Spin and her superb jump and speed, she can makes enemies fainted by her cuteness!
|Heart Spin: Spins with pink, shiny hearts. Similair of Mario but weaker, yet it can stun males enemies even longer, even if it done no damage on latter ones.||World 2|
|Luigi's shy cousin is back for more green-hearted actions. She can easily flee from bad things with her better-than-Waluigi jumps and nearly-as-much-as-Yoshi speed.
Too bad her lack of Power won't help against tough foes.
|Shy Flee: Similar with Luigi's Coward Run, but can float through pits instand on water. Since she can jump doing the Shy Flee, this is ideal for reaching very far places.||World 3|
|Blue Toad's similar friend. While slower and has a lower jump than his blue counterpart,but he is stronger,which makes him more effective in battles. His Toadquake mustn't be underestimated.||Toadquake: Makes a stronger ground pound causing a small yet powerful earthquake, knocking out most enemies with one hit.||World 4|
|The cutest Toad (if we didn't mistaken) and Blue Toad's rumored girlfriend. She got surprising good Power and Speed, and her low jump is nothing when it's come to punishing baddies.||Toadette Charm: Longer range than Maria's Heart Spin, but can only stun male enemies. Fortunately, it last even longer than the female plumber's.||World 5|
|The king of the jungle will lead a helping hand for Mario and friends. He is angry because Bowser is messing with his beloved bananas! Wait a second...||Pound-Shake: Donkey Kong will pound the ground by slamming with his bare hands, stunning nearby enemies and revealing certain secrets.||World 6, 7 or 8|
|Naluigi is Luigi's long lost brother and now he finally sees him again! Naluigi is as fast as Luigi, but he's a bit stronger then Luigi and jumps a bit higher too but not "Waluigi-high". With his Green Fireballs he can be a really good character!||Green Fireball: These fireballs are fireballs that can be thrown at anytime! But Naluigi is the only one that can use them.
These fireballs are stronger than the normal fireballs.
|The special guest who chased Kyurem for freezing his home-arcade game. While weaker than Mario, he can run faster. His magical hammer permits him to fill any Used Blocks.||Hammer Swing: This has no damaging effect on enemies. Fortunately, he can fix any Used Blocks and replenish allies' HP with this attack.||World|
- ToadThief: The young, michevous yet righteous thief who constantly stole Bowser's supplies. He hosts the Block Shops (he made them himself) and gives the player items for the right prise.
- Piantas: Land creatures that are strong and lawful, but guillible and clumsy. They can throw Mario and others for great distance, depended on gender and size.
- Nokis: Sea creatures that are shy but with high intelligences. They gives out a diversuit to get underwater as long the player wanted.
- Cracaws: Flying, feathered cousins of Yoshis. They gives a fast, yet safe sky travelling. They are frequent in Crazed Sky.
- Sam the Koopa: Working for Bowser, he refuses to let the player go unless it does the challenge what he gives.
- Fire John: Working for Bowser, he won't let you cross it unless you gives enough coins, and the prise may varies.
- Kyurem was added as a special secret boss to celebrate the release of Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.
- Maria and Luise, who are the ownership of Arend, are used under permission.
- Wreck-It Ralph was originally to be in as a special guest character to celebrate the release of the movie Wreck-It Ralph, but he was scrapped and was replaced by Fix-It Felix Jr. because the latter one resemble more like Mario, unlike Raplh.
