Five Nights at Freddy's 3

Survive the Horrific Legacy of Fazbear's Fright for Five Nights

Fancying a visit to a horror house would usually entail a desire for some sort of release--perhaps a release from tension or a release from stress and even anxiety. If it isn’t a release, visiting a horror house is surely some sort of entertainment--a way to escape reality and even tap on an obscure vision. For visitors, the horrific experience would usually be more entertaining as hey would only have to be in the place for only a few minutes. But for someone who is tasked to take watch of an infamous horror house, staying there would certainly be more of a form of torture rather than a form of entertainment.

In Five Nights at Freddy’s 3, Scott Cawthon continues on with the terror of the Fazbear saga as players take on the role of a security guard who unwittingly is tasked to keep watch of the horror house. The job of keeping watch may not be that simple as the place seems to be dreadfully haunted by Springtrap, among others--(names of dolls)--guarding the place definitely becomes a job not for the faint of heart.

FNAF3 is showcased in amazingly terrifying 3D graphics, with realistic audio and music capabilities that definitely contributes to the overall creepy feel. For fans of the game series, the game developers bring back a few location scenes from the previous games that would surely delight the fans as they look back on the terrorizing experience that got them hooked in the first place.

The full game is available for purchase ($2.99) in the App Store and in the Play Store. There is also a trial version available if players would want to try the first two nights only--and to get a feel of the game before they make a formal purchase.

Gameplay is pretty simple and straightforward. Armed with only the controls to the camera systems, audio systems, and ventilation systems, players will have to survive the horror of Springtrap--by trying to divert Springtrap away from the guard’s room--and live until dawn.

As a guard on duty, players will have to continuously check on all the camera systems in the house to check for Springtrap’s location. Once Springtrap is seen, players may lure Springtrap away by playing an audio or perhaps even shutting down the ventilation system. There may be times that the camera and ventilation systems may fail, so be sure to refresh or reboot the systems from time to time.

Depending on how you deal with fright, the game is full of jump-scare moments--especially with Springtrap popping right onto your face in the most unexpected time and even killing you afterward.

To be a master of the game,players will have to develop a love-hate relationship with the ominous Springtrap--to observe and study his movements closely and to figure out what moves him (quite literally).

With the game’s well-delivered and challenging gameplay, and immersive story, FNAF 3 is quite a fulfilling ending to the game series--(especially with the scenes from the older games). The game, however, may prove to be challenging for those who hop on the series and start with this one as everything would seem confusing and players won’t be able to appreciate the little flashback details in the game. For those who wish to play FNAF 3, it is highly recommended that they try out the first game in the series first to fully enjoy the game. After all, how could five nights be so bad?
