The main attraction is Freddy Fazbear, of course; and his couple offriends. 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. Expand

    Five Nights at Freddy's is horror done right. No slasher techniques, no gore necessary.

    Entertaining, engaging and enveloping; once Five Nights at Freddy’s clasps its paws around you, it will be hard to let go.

    A simple design that's devilishly clever at messing with you.

    No nightmare can match the sheer terror of looking into the eyes of a plush monster that has come to tear you apart. A new kind of horror is in town. [Issue#245]

    Five Nights at Freddy's, even without both the third dimension and high production values in general, is really scary. It is a little horror game which will scare you with both its original idea and its implementation, proving there may be always a new approach in any genre.

    Nice concept but the sense of horror goes away really quickly. Action is presented in a repetitive way and the resource management doesn't work as well as it could have. Nonetheless the player will still have a few scares.

    Five Nights at Freddy’s presents an interesting concept to the player, and tries a different approach to the genre other than the usual asylum, graveyard and ghost town. Even the gameplay has something to say, but after the first minutes, once understood the mechanism, is hard to find a real interest in continuing playing.

    I've play a ton of horror games and most of the time, they resort to cheap jump-scares and having a bad atmosphere. But when I saw this game,I've play a ton of horror games and most of the time, they resort to cheap jump-scares and having a bad atmosphere. But when I saw this game, I was stunned. Unlike most horror games, you are fixed in a tiny office, looking through cameras to see where the animatronic robots are. What's makes this even more creepy is that the story takes place in a kids pizza parlor where animatronic robots are based on character's from the pizza parlor. This game will scare you and leave you scared for the rest of the night. In short. BUY THIS GAME! Expand

You keep watch over a group of 4 animatronic animals (bear, rabbit, chicken, and fox) in a Chuck E. Cheese-esque kid-friendly pizzeria as they wander at night. While the game itself LOOKS like "another typical indie horror game", it's really not. The mechanics are very simple and unique in that you don't even move, and you only have 3 controls: Check the monitors, close the left and/or right door, and use the left and/or right door lights The 4 animatronics all have their own unique AI and will come after you in different ways. While the gameplay is very light, the true strength of the game and why it's rapidly growing in popularity is the hidden story and horror elements thrown in. These animatronics are incredibly creepy and will disturb and unnerve you to no end, even if you're just watching someone else play it. The cheap jumpscare visuals/screamers aside, 5N@F PERFECTLY plays off of the player's anxieties, OCD, and paranoia. If you don't have any of those mental conditions or aren't even slightly creeped out by animatronics, then you will not be scared nor enjoy this game. The game also has an interesting hidden story that barely any of which is told through playing the game; you actually have to look into it (in-game, or just by cheating and going to the wiki). I'd give it a perfect 10/10 if it didn't have jumpscares/the scream could be toned down just a tiny bit, because those really are the cheap shots of the horror genre (just like a fart noise is the cheap shot of comedy), but it's still an INCREDIBLY well-made game that will scare the **** out of you and keep you paranoid, panicking, and OCD the whole time.

The game is a niceIn this review, i will basically be explaining why i gave Five Night's At Freddy's such a high rating for what it is. The game is a nice change compared to any other horror, or just any game in general. It adds a brand new, fresh game idea and mechanics. It isn't just walking around a haunted asylum, or spooky mansion, while poorly designed monsters pop out at you. In the game, you're actually trying to do this job for a reason. If you don't do it right, there are consequences... That's one of the problems i had with Slenderman. You were literally wandering through a forest trying to find PAPER!... It didn't make you feel like you had a connection with the character at all. In Five Night's At Freddy's, you're scared for yourself, and your character. You also have to take into account that this game was made by ONE GUY! ONE... GUY... Considering how the graphics aren't half bad, and the mechanics are new/fresh, i'd have to say that's pretty impressive.

    Breakdown for Rating:
    - New and Fresh Game Mechanics and Ideas
    - Pretty good graphics and animations
    - Doesn't feel the need to use blood to scare you
    - Made by ONE GUY

    Interesting concept, but lacks the fun. It's an ok game for an 1 or 2 hours. Probably would make a better demo than a full game. StillInteresting concept, but lacks the fun. It's an ok game for an 1 or 2 hours. Probably would make a better demo than a full game. Still enjoyable and if you don't mind spending the few bucks, it's a pretty decent cheap horror.

    Most of them are children! When I go on YouTube and I enter in the search box and insert the word fnaf filters I see: steal from normal fnaf arts community, fanfiction, to redraw
    2.Gameplay
    You guard who just stupidly sitting in one place, watching animatronics, and close the door! And it's all
    3.Graphics
    It has never been! It is simply render images! I will not be afraid of pictures
    4.Plot
    Would you say this is the story of the game Easter eggs? The guard worked for 5 nights and got the money this story? The man who killed the children and their souls go to costumes robots (Rave theory) is the story? Rave! It fafula
    ---------------
    I'm still in shock as normal people to appreciate the game as well-researched game!
    0/10 Worst indie horror game ever
