Five Nights at Freddy's... Is the Game Really Worth It?

GalaxyRat is fond of rats and writing. And dark poetry. She knows that people don't like all these things together... but who cares?

4 stars for Five Nights at Freddy's 4

My Experience

(CommonSense Media rates this game for 12 and up. Don't let your younger kids play, it may give them nightmares!)

I recently got the 4th game off iTunes. The first night is the easiest, and Freddy usually comes around 3 AM. You will see the other ones later, and you are most likely to get a jumpscare from Foxy from the closet in the demo.

I like it, but not enough to rate it 5 stars. The graphics could be a little be scary (although they are already) and you should be able to play the minigames also on mobile. The in between mini games for mobile are slightly difficult.

The Characters and Plot

Apparently, you are now a child in a bedroom, trying to keep safe from the animatronics Freddy, Foxy, Bonnie, and Chica. There are also Freddy spawns behind you. Having only gotten to Night 2, I don't have too much info. Freddy stalks you Night 1 onward, Foxy appears later on with the others. As nightmare versions, they are slightly more creepy.

What have you brought home? Check the closet, close the doors, and watch your back.

Good Advice from the trailer. Do all those things, and don't die.


The Plot is that the animatronics have followed you home. You end up being left at the Pizzeria (from the first game) in the mini games (on laptop and computer) where you try to get out. It is shown that the boy you play as has his frontal lobe chopped off and transported to the hospital. The sound of a heart monitor flatlining ends the game, so fans think the boy dies.

The animatronics are rumored to be stuffed with dead kids' souls. Nasty stuff, read the FNAF Wiki for more information. The wiki pages "Plot" and "Purple Guy' each give info on this Fandom wiki.

The Good

It is of good quality and unexpected jumpscares. Although said to have 5 nights, there are actually 7, an extra night and then a custom night. It keeps you playing! It is a great first app for horror gamers.

The Bad

Nothing really bad except it needs better graphics. I'm just saying! This is actually improved on in Sister Location, the newest FNAF release.

And the Scary

The jumpscares, combined with sounds and sights, are scary. I do not recommend these to the faint of heart. You would be better off watching YouTube videos (of FNAF, there is some) of kittens.

Just saying.

Good game for those willing to spend $2-5. To see if you really want them, play the demos on the Apple and Google Play stores. They're free and you can see if you're interested.
