EA’S OPERATION MANIA GETS A
HEARTBEAT AT RETAIL

Now Available Both at Retail and
Online for Download at Pogo.com

No need to sit in the waiting room
any longer. OPERATION™ MANIA, the PC game from EA’s Pogo.com™ and Hasbro has
been given a clean bill of health and is released into players’ care at retail.
In the game, players race against the clock to send a variety of patients
including well-known and beloved Cavity Sam through a series of treatment
stations. Perform surgery and become an expert surgeon by completing mini-games
reminiscent of the board game. Be quick and effective with treatment before the
patient’s nose starts flashing and time is up! OPERATION MANIA is available at
select retailers in North America and has a MSRP of $19.99. The game is also
available for download online at
www.operationmania.com 
in North America ($19.95) and the U.K. (11.95).

Key features of OPERATION MANIA
include:

  • Hospital management: Diagnose and
    treat both standard and emergency patients, and run them through a gauntlet of
    medical procedures including admissions, x-ray and, of course, operations!

  • Unique hospital settings: Advance
    through 35 levels and five hospitals in different regions on a wacky
    continent.

  • Two game modes: Rise through the
    ranks in Story Mode or go for a challenge in Marathon Mode to care for
    patients as long as possible and experiment with over 100 upgrade
    combinations.

  • Mini-games: Show surgical finesse
    by completing mini games with a steady hand. The bite sized challenges are
    reminiscent of the board game that people have come to know and love.

  • Upgrade the hospital: Spend money
    earned curing patients to buy upgrades for the hospital, including better
    equipment, faster service and additional staff.

  • Multiplayer: Alleviate overcrowded
    waiting rooms by referring patients to friends and family online.
