Five Nights at Freddy's for Android

By Scott Cawthon $2.99 Editors' Rating

Editors' Review Staff Dec 5, 2014

Five Nights at Freddy's proves to be as enjoyably scary as the original computer version. The clever way in which it uses the setting and graphics to create a dark, scary atmosphere makes it a worthy title.


Unique concept and gameplay: You play nightshifts as a new security guard at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, monitoring the place from your shadowy desk, switching between cameras, listening to recorded messages and, if you value your life, shutting the doors to your room when Freddy and his two animatronic robot friends come looking for trouble. The catch is that your energy generator depletes as you use the cameras, turn on lights, or close the doors. Unless you plan your moves carefully, you'll end up in the dark.

Quite scary: Forget about gruesome zombies: this game scares you with its subtle design and unpredictable plot, using light flashes and menacing images when you expect them least.

Great graphics: The game's graphics and scary sounds add a lot to the dark atmosphere and sense of foreboding.


Game-breaking purchase: If you purchase the unlimited energy perk, you'll break the core gameplay by becoming invincible.

Bottom Line

Five Nights at Freddy's demonstrates that story-driven games have a place in the fast-paced world of mobile gaming. It terms of design, execution, and graphics, it's a wonderful title -- a game that has been crafted with care and passion.

Developer's Description

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?
