The robots'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?

    Can you survive five nights as the new night watchman of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza? Be warned: the resident animatronic mascots are a bit... buggy. Good luck!

    Whether Five Nights At Freddy's clicks for you or not is heavily reliant on how well it manages to shake you. If the atmosphere doesn't get to you, all that's left is a very simple game of red light-green light.

    Five nights at Freddy's takes place after the sequel at Freddy's pizzaria, the player is set as the night shift security guard and informedFive nights at Freddy's takes place after the sequel at Freddy's pizzaria, the player is set as the night shift security guard and informed that to watch the animatronics. However the layer must be aware of each of the 5 animatronics locations, shut their doors, occasionally check on the lights, and be aware of "Pirates cove." Each night you can clearly tell something just isn't right with the restaurant, as the information given becomes more and more stranger. Leaving some to believe the restaurant is haunted. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Five Nights at Freddy's is a fun horror game. It has a easy concept and does not require any movement.
    The goal in this game is simple: Manage your battery-power to survive the night. The first few nights are easy, but it gets harder every night.
    This iOS port is pretty well made. The controls fit perfectly. But there is only one problem I have: The small iPhone screen just ruins the atmosphere. The PC Version gets intense because the jumpscares are right in your face. But on the iOS-Version its just small and not as scary as the PC version.
    In the end the iOS port is what you expect: The same game with a smaller screen.

    This game is enjoyable to play but I wouldn't call it a horror game...

    This game is enjoyable to play but I wouldn't call it a horror game...
    I may have jumped at a few of the jumpscares but I never had nightmares about this game. Basically, if you want to be frightened I'd suggest that you play a game like Silent Hill instead.

    If you want to play it- I'd recommend playing this with friends and seeing how long you can survive for.
    If you want to find out more facts about the game- I'd recommend watching Game Theory's videos.

    Five Nights at Freddy's is kind of like a pseudo survival horror game. You play as a night shift guard at a Pizzeria. With limited power,Five Nights at Freddy's is kind of like a pseudo survival horror game. You play as a night shift guard at a Pizzeria. With limited power, resources and visibility you have to keep the rogue animatronics under control.

    The game has an incredibly simple interface. You sit in the guard's office, and have access to locking doors, lights and the restaurant's camera system, which is accessed via a tablet.

    It's an interesting idea that falls pretty flat and gets very boring, with super limited game play fairly soon. The game is so short simply because there isn't enough content to expand upon.

    It also feels incredibly cliche as far as survival horror games goes, it's just another indie developer jumping on the survival horror train, throwing something together and cashing in on it.

    The iOS version also suffers from a complete lack of immersion. At least with the PC version, you can sit, play in the dark and have a nice surround sound experience. With a portable version, not only do the graphics suffer due to the port, but the small screen also limits the ability to put yourself in the game. The iPhone's limited, single speaker hardware design is also a large flaw for the the game on the mobile market.

    Anyways, the game is plagued by limited game play, short play times and awful graphics. If you were going to do something like this, at the very least you could do a better job with the graphics.

    This is a case of a PC game going into the mobile market because they can, but it really has no place for it. The most basic elements that some people may find enjoyable about Five Nights at Freddy's is completely ruined on a mobile device.
