About This Game

Welcome to your new summer job at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, where kids and parents alike come for entertainment and food as far as the eye can see! The main attraction is Freddy Fazbear, of course; and his two friends. They are animatronic robots, programmed to please the crowds! The robots' behavior has become somewhat unpredictable at night however, and it was much cheaper to hire you as a security guard than to find a repairman.

From your small office you must watch the security cameras carefully. You have a very limited amount of electricity that you're allowed to use per night (corporate budget cuts, you know). That means when you run out of power for the night- no more security doors and no more lights! If something isn't right- namely if Freddybear or his friends aren't in their proper places, you must find them on the monitors and protect yourself if needed!

Can you survive five nights at Freddy's?

"For all the simplicity of the game’s controls and premise, Five Nights at Freddy‘s is frightening. It’s a fantastic example of how cleverness in design and subtlety can be used to make an experience terrifying. Simple still images and proper character design steal the show in this game, and show that Scott Cawthon knows quite a lot about the secret fears people feel when looking at creepy dolls and toys. It’s elegant in how it sows fear, and is a must-own for anyone who likes scary games." -Joel Couture IndieGameMag.com

REVIEW
It is unfortunate that I even need to say this, but: I am not interested, whatsoever, in becoming involved in the politics and lobbying of opinions that revolve around this game. I am just going to describe my experience with it and my opinion about it, and offer a suggestion of consideration to anyone who is interested.

So I stumbled across Five Nights at Freddy's in my backlog, and I will admit that there was an influence of brand recognition due to the circus that surrounds the game. Perhaps without which, I would still have yet to even try it. Regardless, I was curious about it so I checked it out and played it for a few hours one night.

It was a fun evening. The game isn’t some insanely life-changing experience, but it is entertaining and has a nice novelty about it. I hadn’t played anything quite like it. You can surely have a fun few hours playing it; I know I did.

It is extremely and purposefully simple, and there are very little controls or mechanics. This minimalist approach to the gameplay creates a scenario which allows the game to evoke a strong sense of helplessness and anxiety in the player. You really can’t do much, but that is the point. And even with the opening disclaimer about jump-scares, I got “got” a good 2-3 times by them as I played that night. I liked it.

Overall, there isn’t much to it. The game is short, the graphics are ugly, the mechanics are minimal, etc. Five Nights at Freddy's isn’t anything overtly special, but it also isn’t excessively terrible… it just is what it is. It’s like horror movies; they usually aren’t anyone’s all-time favorite, but they can be fun for a night.

So if we can put aside the trolling that surrounds this game for a moment, and speak logically: you will likely find Five Nights at Freddy's is an entertaining experience that will definitely appeal to horror buffs and casual gamers, but can also easily be enjoyed by a wide range of gamers. That said, if you are one of those people who believes only the most top-shelf, A-one, premium games “deserve” to be played, you should probably just stay clear. For everyone else: don’t expect the second coming of Jesus Christ, but also don’t expect some unbearably awful experience… just expect a few hours of cheap thrills and then to move on with your life. If that sounds cool with you, then consider checking this out.

Before I start, I don't hate this game. Some people go on and say 'it's the worst game in the world', but there is MUCH worst games out there. So let's start with the FNAF's Pros then Cons.

Pros:

1, The concept
The concept is quite fresh. A killer killed 5 kids and put them inside the animatronics and the souls of the kids posses the the animatronics, but nobody knows.

2. The gameplay
You can't move which adds to the feeling of helplessness.

Cons:

1. The gameplay
I know it makes you feel helpless in the pros, but the gameplay is quite bland, because all you are really doing is looking at cameras and closing door occasionally.

2. The jumpscares
At first the jumpscares are scary, because you don't expect it. That's what a jumpscare is. After a while it just gets annoying, because they are stopping you from progressing further into the game.

To be honest, get this game if you want to. It's really up to opinon.

Welcome to your shift at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, a pizza diner place built in the early 90s. At first the animatronics are creepy, but they're welcoming. You apply for the Night Shift, where Freddy & Friends aren't as welcoming.

From 12 to 6, you must fend off the animatronics from coming to your door and putting an end to your night. But how? Tactics in the games vary- This game has you shut doors and flick on lights to prevent them from coming in.

Shutting doors blindly will get you nowhere, and shutting the lights may be required to check for animatronics. And you may not like what happens if on the later nights you keep both doors closed...

You can also monitor the building, to check on the animatronics before they attack. Check out a guide I made on how to win.

With limited power, vision, and hope, can you survive till' dawn for five nights?

(get it if you love horror games. that's all i have to say.)
