Five Nights at Freddy's and Five Nights at Freddy's 2 is now available for Windows Phone 8. The games are both creepy point-and-click adventures that takes place at Freddy's (think of it as a fictional Chuck E. Cheese) after hours. Rumor has it, that at night the animatronic characters Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie the Bunny, Chica the Chicken, and Foxy the Pirate Fox come to life and become murderous. Well, you are a night security and you just got hired at Freddy's. Good luck.
In the original Five Nights at Freddy's you play as Mike Schmidt who is the new night shift security guard at Freddy's. On your first day you learn that they let the animatronics roam free at night otherwise their motors would lock up. For some reason these machines assume humans are a machines that are out of costume, so they try to force them in an extra costume that kills them in the process
Your job is to survive the animatronics during your shift from midnight to 6am. The only problem is that you can't move from your post. However, you have complete access to all the cameras in the building to keep track of the murderous machines. Yet, the only thing that can stop the characters are two doors that lead inside of your office. You can manipulate these doors to close anytime one of the machines get too close. But wait to close a door too late and you become food.
Five Nights at Freddy's 2 takes the original concept and makes it way scarier. This time you play as Jeremy Fitzgerald, the newest security guard. This time you still have complete camera access, but unfortunately you don't have the doors to protect you. Instead, you have a Freddy Fazbear mask to put on that tricks the animatronics into thinking you are one of them. However, it doesn't fend off all of the characters. Foxy the Pirate Fox can only be scared away by flashing your new flashlight repeatedly at him.
I've played the original Five Nights at Freddy's before, but I think the second one sounds a little too scary especially since I found the first to be extremely scary. So if you want to get your blood pumping and you're up for a scare, grab Five Nights at Freddy's and Five Nights at Freddy's 2 from the Windows Phone store. Unfortunately, 512mb devices are not supported as the graphical quality has been already greatly reduced just to be ported to Windows Phone.
