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

Five Nights at Freddy's is an Indie point-and-click horror game that boomed the Steam Market during its first days of purchase and is still continued as a dare to play this fear and paranoia-induced game. Not to mention famous internet stars such as Markiplier and PewDiePie have made the sales of the game skyrocket even higher than usual indie game sales. You'll enjoy Freddy's little game of don't hide and seek. What's good to know that you've been ready for Freddy for a while, you beat his demonic game and now you'll sit and wait for the sequel planned for release in 2015.

The game honestly doesn't become as scary as you may think. If you have been playing for hours upon end; it becomes highly addictive in a sense. Not to spoil anything, but after the main five nights, you have an optional 6th night and even after that, you can proceed to the insane 20/20/20/20 difficulty mode, where you're doomed from the very start. Unless you can manage to live through it that is.

Inspired by the beloved restaurant, Chuck E. Cheese, even as a kid, I could imagine American kids being totally creeped out by those eerie animatronics they had back in the 80's. Now, their deepest nightmares have come to life as these animatronics in game don't want to sing you no birthday song or throw you a party. They simple mistake you for a robot animatronic without a suit and initially plan to crush your body into a mascot costume, completely fracturing and probably suffocating you in the process.

With only little power reserved for poor ol' Mike Schmidt in the Security Guard's Office, you'll be struggling to stay alive and out of danger on your six hour shift of work, starting from 12 A.M to 6 A.M for five days straight, hence the title of the game. With every night progressively getting worse in fear and paranoia. The animatronics movements become much more unpredictable, as well as unexpected jumpscares will leave your heart to skip a beat and yourself out a shriek of terror. Prepare to deal with Freddy and his buddies, Bonnie the Bunny, Chica the Chicken and Foxy the Pirate Fox. (And the scariest in my opinion.)

What makes this game also very intruiging is the community's efforts on theorising the deeper meanings of the game's overall plot. Ranging from how the Phone guy is the actual killer, to Foxy being a good animatronic rather than a bad one is all deeming down and shredding away parts of the story that makes us think in our own perception. And I love the community's reasons for that as it takes devotion and well-thought ingenuity.

This game actively toys around with your mind, as you will mindlessly switch the lights on and shut the doors in the much more frightening and perilous nights ahead. Things begin to get real hectic as odd noises protrude from various locations in the restaurant, from the animatronics humming, to random musical boxes and demonic laughter, all the while you never know if Bonnie and Chica are ganging up on you or even worse, if you can't turn the lights on or shut the doors, you know you're doomed with a jumpscare at the end. Even Foxy begins to act creepy, since he's the biggest reserved essence of paranoia for me; you never know his patterns directly and you're left shook up if or when you witness his creepy run down the hall, leaving you only little precious time to slam the emergency door down, or else you'll be greeted with an expected jumpscare and a game over.

Definitely recommend this game, and the time I recommend to play this game perfectly fits at midnight, all alone in the dark.

At first I thought the game couldn't be all that scary, actually.
But, once I begun playing I ended up crying, punching someone in the face and sitting in my room by myself with 17 lamps surrounding me.

Though, is it a good game?
If by game you mean a interactive visualisation that increases your heart rate permanently and makes you scared of both cute animals and pizza, then yeah, it's a good game.

Personal Rating:- "Grab it when on sale"
Traditional Rating:- 5/10
Genre: Horror Simulation

Five Nights at Freddy's is a bit of a one-trick pony. There is not much of a game here to speak of and the scares, whilst certainly alarming at the beginning of the game, quickly loose their appeal because of the limited interaction the user actually has with this bite-sized slice of animatronic pizza-hell.

Answering an ad in the local newspaper to work night shift at the local pizzeria (not entirely sure why said pizzeria would need someone running night shift in the first place since they are not exactly baking gold bars ), your job is to keep watch over the restaurant and it's animatronic mascots from the time the clock ticks over into the witching hour until the sun peaks at 6 am the next morning.

Armed with about 8 security cameras (all recording different sections of the restaurant), the entire game is played from within a security booth. You are warned by the previous security guard , via a telephonic call on your very first evening, that the animatronic inhabitants of this diner-from-electronic-hell like to occasionally go walk-about at night. Nothing to really stress or worry yourself about that is until you realize after your first shift that there is something sinister about the way these machines begin to play a game of cat and mouse with you.

Gameplay consists solely of staring at static screens with no movement whatsoever. You will simply click each camera during the clocks midnight to sunrise countdown and make sure everything still looks the same way it did the last time you checked the area. While the idea is a solid one its just not sustainable for a game and truthfully I can't see many getting hours and hours of enjoyment out of it. While it would be a great and terrifying addition to any horror game with a much larger canvas it's more of a concept here and once the show pony has been trotted out there is very little surprise left.

The game does try to add an element of light strategy to the premise by giving you a power gauge that you need to conserve else electrically the place is plunged into complete darkness as the power runs out leaving you completely open to attack. For instance closing and opening doors (you can lock yourself in the booth if you are feeling a little bit threatened) has the adverse effect of lowering the power gauge quite significantly as does keeping the lights on for to long but that is about as far as it goes when it comes to playing Five Nights at Freddy's.

Five Nights at Freddy's is the kind of game students at varsity create as part of their development portfolio and while the idea is a strangely novel one to start with it doesn't particularly go anywhere and is over in less than 1hr. I admit to being strangely baffled as to why this game has so many overwhelmingly positive reviews and has me asking the question what sort of games are these people really playing if this is the pinacle of their pizza-pie. I hate to seem so harsh on what looks like someone's student project but I don't belive this should be retailing for the amount it currently is sitting at on the storefront. This is more like a 0.99 cent kind of experience. I am giving the game a thumbs up but think of it more as an sideway's orange thumb.

This game uses a simple mechanic (looking at cameras) to create one of the scariest games I have played all year. Even after an hour or two you still will dread looking down from the camera for fear of an Animatronic hiding behind it. Can get very difficult and you are guaranteed to have many close calls as you try to make it through the nights.

At $5 this game is a steal.

This game is so tense that it's a blast to play. I don't think I've ever played an indie horror game that was actually good until this.

For example, I was on Night 6, midway through 4 AM when Chica disabled the door. I knew I was screwed, so I threw down the left door to block out Foxy.

A little bit into 5 AM, I hear banging on the door. This means Foxy is reset, so I throw up the door. With 7% power remaining, I sit still and hold out.

The power finally goes, I hear footsteps...followed by the happy jingle of our favorite bear. It was over, he had found me.

Then, in the middle of the song, 6 AM arrives!!!

Go to hell, Freddy.

I'm not a fan of scary games, in fact I think we get enough horrors IRL so there is no need to terrify ourselves to death on computer. BUTT, there was something about Freddy that made me get it. Maybe the originality, or that it's single-handedly made, or that it's very simple and there's no need to learn complicated mechanics, I don't know. Probably all of them combined. Even after the little time I played, I still feel Freddy breathing over my shoulder every time I get up to use the toilet in the night. I bought it for 2€ and I'm happy I did. It's a unique experience, you don't run from the evil robots, you sit and close the door when they come. You better be sure they're coming though, otherwise your juice to keep the doors closed will run out and then you can only pray for the Sun to come up faster. 8.5/10
