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

This product should be used in schools for teaching little kids, because it does show us why saving electricity is very important.

This is a perfect game for children of all ages, especially eight or younger. You can play as a night-time security guard and hang out with four friendly characters, who will reward the player with sunshine and rainbows every time they find you.

Now, the title screen will make the game seem scary, but don't be fooled by it.

Parents, you can't beat this deal. Your kids will have an infinite amount of fun, and it's only $4.99! You'd be a terrible parent if you didn't buy it!

I dont know how to do reviews so here a good recipe for banana bread

2-3 very ripe bananas, peeled
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup of sugar (can easily use 3/4 cup, or drop it down to 1/2 cup if you want it less sweet)
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
METHOD
Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C), and butter a 4x8-inch loaf pan.
In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.
Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in the sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour.
Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes (check at 50 minutes) at 350°F (175°C), or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove from oven and cool completely on a rack. Remove the banana bread from the pan. Slice and serve. (A bread knife helps to make slices that aren't crumbly.)

oh, also the game is spooky.

A difficult game to recommend as I come close to loving it but even closer to hating it. But Steam forces me to click thumbs up or thumbs down and in the end it gets a thumbs up because even though I had a love/hate relationship with this game, I am strangely glad that I played it.

Five Night at Freddy's starts as a psychological horror game but ends up more of a resource management game. The first four nights were a lot of fun, quite creepy and sometimes scary (although mostly because of jump scares). But by the fifth night the game is all about the resource management to the point where the psychological horror disapears. You are not going to finish it on the first attempt and the chances are by the time you complete this you will be numb and possibly even bored.

Night five is like trying to juggle twelve eggs. The basic idea is pretty simple, but executing it without making a mistake is the problem. It can take a lot of practice and many hair pulling moments. For me night five was not fun, and that is where the problem arises: Night Five is where the game really starts. You will spend more time on night five (and beyond) than the first four days.

It is not a bad game, and if you like juggling eggs whilst avoiding jump scares it will be sheer joy for you. But for me it was four nights of fun and one very very long night of frustration followed by a brief moment of sheer extasy when I finally finished night five .... and then a painful moment when I saw what was next.

In the end I recommend this game because it is an experience I am glad I had, and feel it is one most lovers of horror/jump scare games should try once. But do not expect to enjoy every minute of this game unless you are masochistic in nature. Hair pulling and keyboard violence should be expected.

There's a warning at the start of this game. Take it seriously.

I've had an easy life, but I've been mugged at gunpoint, I was present for a difficult birth, and I once came within inches of falling off a moving train. I plumbed the depths of Lab X-18, and I even played Minecraft back when spiders were scary. Nothing compares to Five Nights at Freddy's.

My play time is low because I'm honestly concerned this game might give me a heart attack. I intend never to play it again. I can't bring myself to uninstall it.

Game of the year, no joke.

Perfect blend of challenging and terrifying

+ Intense and successful jumpscares pervading throughout
+ Palpable, well-defined atmosphere and sense of anxiety
+ Lack of antagonist animations (for the most part) keeps one thoroughly unnerved; feels deeply wrong
+ Unique gameplay objectives and mechanics
+ Nonchalance of the phone-caller is unsettling, yet very welcome and informative
+ Premise is refreshingly unique
+ Managing power and visual resources firms up the challenge
+ Each subsequent night is more terrifying and difficult than the last
+ Sound effects are superbly employed and get under one's skin
+ Additional challenging nights that can be unlocked through completion of the first five nights, all of which dial up the intensity

- No configuration options of any kind

After seeing countless YouTube videos of this game, I had to play it myself... and I'm glad I did. You really need to be on the ball to get through this game with your sanity intact and your pants dry. I'll admit, after watching videos of this game, I kinda already know what to expect, but I still had a jump here and there. Watching videos is one thing. Playing the game yourself is another.

Five Nights at Freddy's is probably one of the games on Steam that everyone will have heard of; however I promised to review every game I finished so here goes...

The aim of Five Nights at Freddy's is to survive five consecutive nights in the security room of Freddy's Restaurant, hiding away from the horrors of the night, you have a limited amount of power to use the lights and keep the doors closed. It's very much a resource management game in that sense.

The graphics seem to be pre-rendered 2D style, which to be honest, they don't look the best, the security office where the whole game takes place is very pixelated and it doesn't look very pleasing, however the character models of the other bears etc. look quite cool.

As in all other horror games, the music and sound effects play the most critical role, they set the mood, and give you the most jump scare effects, and they are done very well here. The levels are all set in the same place; they just get progressively harder and harder, with different techniques used by the bears on each stage. The game is pretty hard once you get to Night 3 onwards, and will probably have you cowering in fear.

The whole game took two hours to complete the Five Nights, this felt just the right length as I don't think I could any more of the jumps and suspense.

People who seek that jump scare experience will find the thrill here; and the puzzle aspect of having to look after your power management is a nice feature, so overall, I can recommend Five Nights at Freddy's.

If you found this review helpful, please consider giving it a thumbs up. You can also find more reviews over at http://www.completingthebackloggroup.com/

Note: I got paid to write for reviews4views website.

Five Nights at Freddys’ is a game about an employee who has to look after a pizza place that comes alive at the dead of night. As an employee of course you want to be paid so you're going to stubbornly stick to your seat and watch those monitors like a good lad and try to avoid dying. Surviving from 12 AM to 6 AM to get your paycheck sounds easy enough but it proves harder than it seems.

The animatronics start in the same locations every night, three of them in the furthest room and one in Pirate's Cove with a total of four animatronics to monitor it can become hectic when they start to separate. Though while I say there is four to monitor there is also goldy freddy to be careful of especially when the poster changes. Foxy the one from Pirate's Cove is the most mobile of the four and will have you checking on him from time to time to make sure he doesn’t dash straight for you.

Management of your resources is utmost importance in order to survive the entire night, which also means not running out of battery. Battery is going to be your main weapon to fend off these animatronics. It’s used to not only lighten up the hallways to check if they are next to you but also to monitor their movement via cameras. This actually is well balanced to the degree where I had many close calls of nearly dying from running out but lasting just long enough to get the paycheck.

I died several times on the first night, if it wasn’t for the fact I died I would be fired quickly for just being overall bad at my job.. Having tools to fend yourself helps but in a sense its only there to “delay” the jumpscare unless you make it to 6 am, if you are unable to the tension will explode from the building climax especially when the music box starts to play at 5 AM. The game is basically relays on your mind to play tricks on you and to build up fear for the “one” moment you know can come at any time especially if you let your guard down.

Once you beat all the nights there is a custom mode you can play to increase the ai of the robots up to 20. Which allows you to try the most challenging part of the game. At this point however your less scared of the game and more in it for the challenge of it all. You will most likely already establish a routine like many others have that helps you keep control of the situation and power manage the animatronics properly, so that you won’t be killed.

The overly major problem this game suffers really is ultimately finding a good routine will diminish the tension you had when you first started. Going into this game without a clue is really the best way to get value of it. Figuring it out step by step really gives it a better experience however once you get there the only real fun thing that remains is beating the custom night with all the AI on 20.

The premise of the game and the simplicity really make it standout and is quite accomplishes what it set out to do. The mechanics handle fairly well and are balanced to the point where you will see many videos of others and myself barely surviving the night multiple times regardless how well we try to balance our energy usage. The game is great for the tension that leads up to the jump scares though this diminishes towards the end and ultimately becomes about the challenge I still found the experience well worth the money.

Hello, hello? Uh, I wanted to write a review for you to help you get settled in on your first night. I know it can be a bit overwhelming, but I'm here to tell you there's nothing to worry about. Uh, you'll do fine. So, let's just focus on getting you through your first week. Okay?

Just Keep an eye of those camera's as the animatronic characters do get a bit quirky at night. They're left in some kind of free roaming mode at night. Uh...Something about their servos locking up if they get turned off for too long. Also your room is fitted with lights to check outside your doors to see if there is anything unwanted, if there is close the doors and they soon leave.

But hey, first day should be a breeze. I'll chat with you tomorrow. Uh, check those cameras, and remember to close the doors only if absolutely necessary. Gotta conserve power. Alright, good night.
