Five Nights at Freddy's is a weird game.
Cast as a night watchman, your job is to man the security desk at a children's restaurant. During the day, kids come to eat and be entertainent by the eatery's collection of animatronic animals, who laugh and dance and play with the squealing brats until closing time.
At night, however, these souless automatons stalk the corridors of the building, looking for humans to stuff into bear suits.
It's your job to keep the building safe - and yourself alive - between the hours of 12am and 6am. And, as Pocket Gamer's Alysia Judge discovered, trying not to be murdered by robot bears is an intense and terrifying experience.

DescriptionThis is the official mobile port of Five Nights at Freddys!
NOTE: This game requires at least 512 megs of ram to run properly; low-memory devices such as the iPod gen 3 and 4 will crash during gameplay. If you have a newer device this shouldn't be a problem!
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?
"For all the simplicity of the game’s controls and premise, Five Nights at Freddy‘s is frightening. It’s a fantastic example of how cleverness in design and subtlety can be used to make an experience terrifying. Simple still images and proper character design steal the show in this game, and show that Scott Cawthon knows quite a lot about the secret fears people feel when looking at creepy dolls and toys. It’s elegant in how it sows fear, and is a must-own for anyone who likes scary games." -Joel Couture IndieGameMag.com
