A strange spin-off
FNaF World is a surprising entry into the original franchise. Rather than approach gamers with another horror title, the developer decided to push a fruity role-playing-game.
From horrifying to frustrating
FNaF World is a turn-based RPG that tries and fails to implement the characters and theme from Five Nights at Freddy's.
Plenty of people know about Five Nights at Freddy’s. It’s a series based on surviving an entire night locked in a building with robotic enemies. In the process of surviving, you’re put through constant stress and jump scares.
FNaF World, however, is a bizarre addition to the franchise. There’s no horror here. It flaunts bright colors and funky music, and this makes it feel like a game meant for children. There’s an argument to be had on whether that was the entire purpose but, considering its predecessors, it doesn’t seem to be the case.
Immerse yourself in a world with characters like Balloon Boy and Phantom Marionette. Explore the strange contrast between scary and child-like. You can do all this while struggling with mediocre and inconsistent RPG gameplay, once you get past the long and unjustified loading screens, that is. The incoherent controls and lack of information on what’s happening in the game make for a frustrating experience.
There’s always a silver lining, though. If you change the target audience, this title could turn out just fine. The exaggerated colors and simple gameplay might work great with kids. It has a fun and bouncy soundtrack to boot. Also, younger audiences would highly enjoy the forty characters available to choose from. They all have fun little animations, and the enemies share these qualities.
Where can you run this program?
This program runs on Windows 7 and later. Additionally, it can be downloaded to Android devices.
Is there a better alternative?
Absolutely. Darkest Dungeon and Earthbound are fantastic alternatives in every way.
Anyone looking for an enjoyable and high-quality turn-based RPG will need to look elsewhere. Currently, this game can’t stand on its own legs.
Should you download it?
No. If you’re looking for a well-developed game, you need to find it somewhere else.
