Hysteria Hospital: Emergency Ward– Can you handle the Pressure?

Northampton, UK; February 11th 2009: Oxygen Games™ are pleased to announce a new, fun and frantic, multi-platform gaming experience with Hysteria Hospital: Emergency Ward.

At Hysteria Hospital, life will prove to be a manic challenge. Players will have several levels of the hospital to navigate, and they will have to reach desperate patients and demanding doctors within a set period of time. The frenzy inside the hospital will increase as the game progresses with more and more demanding patients desperate to be cured!

It’s just a usual day in Hysteria Hospital– another torrent of patients threatens to turn the emergency ward into chaos. Only one person can control the frantic situation - can you keep your patients happy when your ward is overrun?

You play as a female or male nurse and organise the ward and direct the patients to treat their conditions as quickly as possible

You can design and improve your ward for life-saving efficiency to be the best head nurse in America and save the Hospital from being overrun!

Each of the patients have many humorous conditions, all with cures using the latest, bleeding-edge treatment machines ranging from basic X-Ray’s to steam therapy to the hilarious De-Stress machine

There are 7 different wards to run, from a local Maryville clinic through to New York Central Hospital; over 60 levels including the‘Endless’ mode that steadily increases in challenge as you progress.

We’ve spent a lot of time researching what audiences want in a good casual game and we’ve incorporated these into Hysteria Hospital: Emergency Ward,” said Oxygen Games CEO Jim Scott.“ Hysteria Hospital is very funny, very frantic and is sure to entertain gamers of all ages.”

Hysteria Hospital: Emergency Ward is scheduled for release on Wii™, Nintendo DS™ and PC in April 2009.
