Five Nights at Freddy’s ~ APP #Reviews

reviewing Apps

When I am not reading you can usually find me playing games on my iPad. The App Store has so many games to choose from and you kind of have to rely on the reviews to see if you should really spend the money on it, sometimes I even hesitate to download the free ones just because I’m not sure, but are the review honest?  Why waste your time and room on your ipad/smart phone if the game is no good.

App Reviews is a feature that reviews free and bought apps from the App Store, we download them, whether free or paid and play, then either just Me and/or Ryan (9) and/or Julia (6) will tell you what we thought. Sometimes reviews just don’t tell you what you really want to know and the pictures just don’t give enough info. So the three of us (or only me) have played the game, taken screen shots  and will tell you what we honestly think. So before you download that game, check out what we thought of it first.

Have a game you are considering playing but aren’t sure send us an email and we will look into it and it might be featured on our next App Reviews


Couldn’t wait to introduce this new feature on my blog and what a perfect way to start it with a Scary game thats perfect for October…

Looking for something scary to play? Well get ready to jump out of your skin and maybe even pee a little in your pants because the jumpscares in this game will have you screaming out loud and avoiding Chuck E Cheese like the plague.

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?

“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

Review:

My kids love to watch Youtube and they have become fans of a few Youtubers (that I monitor) I have also become fans of some of them too. Recently over the summer my 6 years old (yes 6 years old) Showed me her favorite youtuber Cupquake playing this game 5 Nights a Freddys on the PC. It was so funny and extremely scary, the game has a lot of jumpscares and my daughter and I found ourselves jumping along with Cupquake. The only problem was my daughter wanted to play this game (and so did I) but we have a MAC and it’s only available on the PC. It wasn’t until the beginning of September that my daughter came running into the kitchen to tell me that the app store had 5 Nights at Freddy’s, without hesitation I downloaded it and let the fun begin.

Yes, I jumped out of my skin quite a few times and had to stop playing to recover lol. This game is so much fun and will make you jump, sometimes you are expecting it but sometimes you are not. That damn fox gets me every time. The controls are super simple and you do need a bit of strategy to get through each night. Sometimes you can’t use the camera’s a much and need to focus on the lights by the doors and sometimes they just get you without you even looking. The PC version of the game according to my daughter has a purple and gold bear. I have seen the gold bear in the App version ONCE, never again, scared the hell out of me. It has really creepy noises and freaky laughing the worst is when the doors stop working you are in a complete panic.

This is a great game to play with the lights off and the volume up. If you don’t have an iPad or iPod you can get this game on the PC and the controls and game play is exactly the same as the app. The only thing I don’t like about this game, for example, when the duck comes after you it always comes on the right side only and if your power runs out it’s always the bear that jump out at you. I wish they switched around and could come from any where but it still will make you pee your pants regardless were they jump out from. This is an Indie game and it looks like the creators first game so I have to give him credit it’s a really good game.

I realize my daughter is very young for this game but she is a tough girl and it doesn’t scare her. This is NOT a game for kids who scare easily so I would probably think kids 12 and up would be more suited for this game. My son is 9 and it freaks him out but he still plays, sometimes, so if you think your kid can handle it let them play otherwise save it for yourself and let them play when they get older 🙂

I heard they are coming out with a 5 Nights at Freddy’s 2 and I can’t wait to play it 🙂 :

Recommend: YES, This is really a fun game but I would be careful with the little ones this will be to0 scary for them.


Hope you enjoyed this review

Have a Great day and Happy Gaming!

  1. This new feature is a great idea and you’ll get your kids involved with your blog! My daughter (11) is always playing on the ipad so I’ll have to check this game out. We don’t like scary stuff but this sounds like fun.

    • As an adult I really enjoy it but it can be scary of you don’t like things to jump out at you. Thanks for stopping by to check out my new feature 🙂

  2. Yay! I’m so thrilled you’re doing these reviews 🙂 This game would freak me out… Julia is braver than I am! I really don’t think I could play it…. Awesome review though. I bet Franky would love it.

  3. What a great idea for a feature, I actually own an old ipad model and play Hay Day every morning during breakfast. It’s a simulation type game were you run a farm.
    I never heard of this app, but I usually avoid the scary ones and only download free apps. I am not a big fan of scary games or books.

    I am looking forward to read mroe of your app reviews. And I am also excitied to see some app reviews by your children!

    • I played Hay Day, it’s a fun game but I was starting to get annoyed with the in store purchases. You might like a game called Dragonvale, I will be reviewing that one soon, it’s my favorite game ever. I going to have both kids pick an app to play and then have them review it, one that is already on there iPad to show them how to do it. They like this better than reviewing books.
