What has been termed the scariest game ever has been ported to Windows Phone.
Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 is the sequel to the indie game Five Nights at Freddy’s, developed by Scott Cawthon.
In the game the player plays as security guard Jeremy Fitzgerald, who must survive a night shift at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria, without being attacked by any of the animatronic enemy characters (11 in all) that wander from room to room. The player cannot leave the security office, but can track the animatronics’ movements via a network of surveillance cameras placed throughout the building. The office has three entrances, none of these can be sealed off to block enemies from entering. Each vent is equipped with a light that can be used to check for any characters that are about to crawl into the office and the player can put on a Freddy Fazbear mask to ward off approaching animatronics, and a flashlight is available to check the hallway and darkened areas of the camera feeds.
It features six brand new enemy characters as well as redesigned versions of the original four enemy characters from the original game.
The game is $2.99, unfortunately without a free trial, and can be found in the Windows Phone Store here.
Of note is that while the game generally works well, early reviews complain of the resolution of the graphics being reduced on Windows Phone, presumably to allow it to work well on low-RAM devices.
We will be publishing a review of the game shortly, but in the mean time see the trailer below.
