  • Watching the robots move between cameras is genuinely creepy

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.

Watch the video above to hear the full review.
