I was a bit late to the Fine Nights at Freddy’s, but I knew that it was a hit by the fact there is what feels like a million games and a ton of merch on store shelves. I love the jump scares, the creepy animatronics and the whole FNaF style, but when a buddy told me there was a JRPG that is set in the Five Nights at Freddy’s I knew I had to check it out.
This Is Weird….. Like Really Weird!
As this is a JRPG style game, as you would expect there is a story that is running through the game. The idea is that there are these weird creatures around the land and they are causing all kind of havoc and the FNaF staff is not equipped to deal with it so you need to.
Let’s Have A Party
The first thing that I found interesting about Five Nights at Freddy’s World was the way it dealt with your party. You have a choice of eight characters at the start of the game and you split these up into two parties. As you play through the game and meet new characters, you can then add them to your party. Each party member has their own attacks and abilities for you to get to grips with.
Basic, But Cool Presentation
The presentation of FNaF World is kind of all over the place. The battles are done with these lovely looking 3D character models which I feel look way better than most people give them credit for. They are lacking in terms of animation, but the FNaF crew along with the enemies and the bosses do look great. The overworld is awesome and really took me by surprise. They have gone for a retro style as you are going around the map. It looks like an Atari 2600 game and that is really cool. When you go to a store, a mini game or whatever. You will then enter into a different viewpoint where you see those nice looking 3D models.
Most of your time in FNaF is spent battling. The battling is very simplistic and each character has just a few moves that they can do. For me, the move where you use Pizza is the most powerful. You will also need to keep an eye on your health and use characters that have healing abilities. One thing that is pretty neat is the two party system. So let’s just say you are in a fight with a tough enemy and your party is down to its last member. This is not the end! You can press the switch button and bring in your other party. I found this to make combat very easy and there was only a couple of times that battles got the best out of me. When you win a battle you get some XP and currency that you can use in the game.
More Than Just Fighting
While fighting is what you will be doing most of the time. You will also go to stores where you can buy items to help you out. Also, you can play mini games these are actually pretty fun and there is a fishing one that I had a lot of fun with. These do help a little to break things up and keep things that little bit more interesting.
You have to keep in mind that FNaF World is a free to play game, but there is still not a whole lot to do here. If you love the Five Nights at Freddy’s universe then this is well worth checking out. Just know there is not really any “horror” or jump scares in this game as it is most certainly made with kids in mind. Still, it is worth checking out for an hour or so as it is free.
