Fans of Five Nights at Freddy's have been tirelessly looking for something similar to it for a long time. With Five Nights at Candy's, we believe that this itch should be satisfied all the way. Providing the same core gameplay, this game has better graphics, better jumpscares, and an equally mysterious story.
Five Nights at Candy's, or FNAC, started out as a spinoff of the incredibly popular horror franchise Five Nights at Freddy's. However, it has grown into a strong franchise on its own.
Instead of the same old Freddy Fazbear's New Pizzeria location, you now have to survive the Candy's location. You will still have the same gameplay and objective, surviving the horrible nights at this new location as a new recruit. During this time, the animatronics will be hunting for you.
Throughout the 6 nights, you will be able to gather pieces of information to know the cause of the animatronics’ madness and what happens here before the story takes place.
For the entire duration of the game, you are limited to the security office with no walking capability. On the other hand, all the animatronics have shredded their daytime masks, roaming the facility with murderous intentions. If you can survive a total of 6 nights here, you win the game.
Your only option of defense against them is a variety of tools, consisting of a camera, lights, and two reinforced security doors. They will keep you temporarily safe from the animatronics, prolonging your survival time.
However, these tools consume a certain amount of power with each use. When your power resource runs out, you won't be able to use them, making you practically a sitting duck before the monsters.
The power depletion rates increase with each day you have survived. On the last day, you can't afford to make any mistaken use of the tools.
As we mentioned above, power is the most vital part of this game. It's not at all an overstatement to say that you will win the whole thing if you know how to balance the power depletion rate. The only way to do so is to make as few mistakes as possible, which leads to our second tip.
You should make full use of the light switches. When you see the animatronics, you close the door, and the lights on both doors will cast onto the window. If the animatronic is still there, its shadow will also be shown. When you don't see any shadows, you can immediately open the doors, saving a lot of power.
All in all, we believe that Five Nights at Candy's is a worthy succession to Five Nights at Freddy's, despite being a fan game. You get the same thrills that the classic provided, with fewer game-breaking bugs and an overhauled graphic setting. What are you waiting for? Let's play the game right now!
