The original release in the comical horror-survival game franchise
Windows 10 / Windows 8.1 / Windows 8 / Windows 7
Five Nights at Freddy's World is a role-playing game that features some of the same characters as other games in the series and is suitable for multiple players.
The first game in that series ranks as one of the top horror games of all time. You played as a security guard working in a pizza joint late at night. Stuck in the guard office, you kept an eye on the animatronics that came to life later at night and attacked any humans they encounter. Other games in the series added more horror elements and created more thrills and chills. Though this game takes place in the same world, it's much brighter and cheerful, which will turn off fans of the franchise.
Five Nights at Freddy's World sends you to a virtual world based on the game series. It gives you 40 animatronic characters that you can play as you explore that world. You'll quickly find built-in glitches and bugs that transform that world. These problems will make certain parts of the map degrade, rot and even fall apart. It asks you to find the source of the problem to potentially save the world.
The biggest problem with this game is that it doesn't involve any type of strategy. Instead of giving you instructions to follow and telling you how to attack, the game leaves it up to you to uncover all those moves. If you hit some buttons on your computer, you might fight back against a glitch and save the world, but hitting a combination of buttons might also make you cast a healing move that restores the energy you lost. You really have no way of knowing what might happen.
Another issue is that the game severely limits what you can do. Though many fans hoped for an open world, the developers limited the areas you can explore on this map to just a few places. If you played the Five Nights at Freddy's Halloween Edition game, you'll notice that this map is almost exactly the same as the one used in that game.
As it doesn't add a lot to the series and doesn't follow the story established in previous titles, Five Nights at Freddy's World may appeal to younger fans but not as many adults.
