Five Nights At Freddy’s is a point-and-click horror game that came out on August 2014 due to famous YouTubers like Markiplier and Pewdiepie playing the game. It has become famous within a few weeks of its release.

GAMEPLAY: The game starts out in an office with the player playing as the main character “Mike Schmidt,” who is tasked with being the nightwatch at a fictional Chuck E Cheese-like restaurant called “Freddy Fazbears Pizza.”

Given a set of instructions from a character called “phone guy,” the player is also tasked with playing for five or seven nights from 12 a.m to 6 a.m. Each night gets progressively more difficult and challenging. Phone guy instructs the player that the animatronics have a free roaming mode at night and tend to wander a bit, and if the four animatronics see him after hours he will be stuffed into a empty animatronic suit filled with crossbeams, wires and various parts which will most likely kill the player.

The game has three ways to defend the players against the animatronics such as metal doors to prevent the animatronics from entering the office and two door lights to see if the animatronics are in a blind spot outside the doors. The player also has a tablet to view where the animatronics are located and tell whether they are near the office.

But the bad part is you can’t keep your doors closed forever because you have a power meter that goes down every time you do something so staying still isn’t the answer.

Now I know what you guys are going to say: “Who are these four animatronics and how do I defend myself?!”

The first animatronic you have to worry about is Bonnie The Bunny. Bonnie can be very aggressive and moves around the building very quickly and is the first to greet the player.

The second animatronic is Chica The Chicken. Like Bonnie, Chica will also greet the player and is the slowest of the four.

Foxy the Pirate will occasionally peek out of a curtain and rush toward the player like a rhino on RedBull if the player does not use the cameras to check on him occasionally.

And finally Freddy Fazbear who likes dark areas of the building and will move while laughing. Also if you run out of power always expect Freddy to show up and kill you.

The game’s creepy atmosphere and creative gameplay have created FNAF clones, but they’re most likely poor imitators.

I’ll give this game a 9 out of 10. This game is incredibly creepy and challenging and is a good example of taking advice and making something out of it. The game’s creator Scott Cawthon made several other games but was criticized about his game’s characters looking like creepy animatronics. With that the inspiration for FNAF was born.
