Mass Hysteria is an attempt at an original game for the NDS, where you use the simple menu interface to choose your actions. As the player it is your job to hack the TV airwaves and place footage onto them, given to you by random people. You are given the weekly listings for a channel, along with all the different genres of show that will be on, and you select a show to hijack that will attract the audience similar to the target of the footage.

The game features a ten week story mode, but the main feature was originally the mass hysteria mode where you are given four pieces of footage at random to place whereever you like and get the highest score possible. Game features include a shop to buy donuts to get the police attention off you, extra satellites so you can hijack more than one show per week and extra footage.,4549.0.html
