Five Nights at Freddy's Review
Five Nights at Freddy's is a horror game developed by Clickteam USA. You can currently download Five Nights at Freddy's on Android, iOS, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Windows.
Gameplay: Simple Horror
Five Nights at Freddy's does not offer much gameplay opportunities, yet it manages to make almost every player feel discomfort. The game's setting is as follows: you are a security guard at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, where the owners have set several animatronics to entertain visitors. Your job is to watch the security cameras at night and make sure that the animatronics stay inside till morning, as their behavior is pretty unpredictable. You have a limited amount of electricity you can use, so you will have to turn the cameras off rather frequently and discover the animatronics to change their locations as soon as you turn the cameras on.
Graphics: Scary Puppets
What makes the game a horror is the design of the mentioned animatronics. You can see they look pretty discomforting at the screenshots, while in the game, they also move with weird animations and make strange noises. In case the game does not manage to scare you, it will most likely make you feel uncomfortable, which is why it has so many fans around the world. The developers have known what they were doing, as even with this low amount of gameplay elements and visual effects, they have managed to produce a decent horror game.
Controls: Easy to Play On All Platforms
The controls are pretty simple, as there are not so many gameplay elements. The users have reported bad controls on mobile. However, the updates of 2020 seem to fix all the issues, as most users now state that the game has become much better. It is comfortable to play Five Nights at Freddy's with touch controls, with gamepads, and with keyboards.
Five Nights at Freddy's is not a game we would be able to recommend to everyone, as it aims for a very specific audience of horror game fans. In case you enjoy the uncomfortable feelings brought by horrors, this game will most likely provide them to you. It is also a great game to start playing horrors, as it does not require many actions from the player. However, in case you do not like horrors in general, Five Nights at Freddy's won’t become an exception for you.
