Five Nights at Freddy's 4 is the fourth, and last (supposedly) release in the Five Nights at Freddy's saga. Developed and published by Scott Cawthon, this horror game has delighted all the fans of horror games, and has also raised the criticism from those that say that there are too many FNaF games. This time, you are not a security guard fighting for your life against creepy animatronics. Instead, you are a defenseless kid who struggles every night because of his terrifying nightmares (nightmares about creepy animatronics, of course).
Now, animatronics don't kill you, because they are just nightmares, but they can scare you as they have done since forever. Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy have come back, and they have brought new nightmare friends with them. Also, the location is not an office anymore. It takes place in your own room, a room with a bed, two doors, and a dark closet. Each part of the room is dangerous since they are places where the animatronics can hide.
Moreover, the mechanics of the game have significantly changed compared to the previous tree installments in the saga. Now, you do not depend on your vision, or the cameras, because in this release, you don't have them. Now, you have to hear; you have to pay attention to every sound, breath, and laugh, because sound indicates where enemies will come from. It's recommended to play with earphones or with a very high volume. You are free to play with a regular sound volume, but you will not be able to hear your enemies.
Are you ready to say goodbye to your beloved animatronics?
As mentioned, the mechanics have changed. Now, you have nothing more than your senses and a flashlight to defend yourself. You have to control both doors, the closet, and the bed behind you. Animatronics can appear in any of the four places. What you have to do is walk bravely to the doors and the closet, listen carefully and if you hear something, close the door as fast as you can and hold it shut until the sound disappears. In case you don't hear anything, use the flashlight to prevent enemies from coming. The bed at your back has a little Freddy fluffy toy, but sometimes dreadful miniature Freddy's appear, followed by Nightmare Freddy himself. You have to shoo them with the flashlight unless you want Freddy to appear. It can seem easy, but the slightest mistake (using the flashlight when you hear a breath, or not closing the doors in time), will bring an end to the game.
Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy have come back, and they have brought new nightmare friends with them
Talking about your friends the animatronics, when you download FNaF4, you will have to face six of them, eight if you take into account the "nonofficial" ones. You already know Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy (nightmare version) but let me introduce you to Nightmare FredBear and Nightmare (plainly). All the animatronics in nightmare version are decrepit, broken, and especially scary. They have very long sharp teeth and glowing eyes, but Nightmare FredBear and Nightmare have even longer teeth, and they are very dangerous because they are unpredictable. This is especially true of Nightmare, since he is black and semi-transparent. They start appearing on nights 5 and 7, respectively.
