Five Nights at Freddy's 2 is a new indie horror game developed and released by independent developer Scott Cawthon formerly of Valve Corporation. It's the second installment in the long-running Five Nights at Freddy's series of horror games. You play the role of Dr. Isaac's loyal lab assistant, Cherry Candy, who must save the man known as Freddy in order to save her own mind and stop a blood-thirsty serial killer from taking over the Freddy Industries facility. A fast-paced game, Five Nights at Freddy's 2 has a lot of scares but little violence. It's appropriate for players who have been bitten by the horror bug, but it's not a blood and gore game.
The story is a simple one, although you'd be surprised how much detail the developers put into making this game's world look "real." Although the story is based on a true story (the game takes place in an office in Colorado Springs where the director of a neurological research center is experimenting on animals), it doesn't take place in a realistic setting. The non-existent psychic connections between the main character and his colleagues, the strange symbols etched on the walls, and the unexplained phenomena involving the purple blood tendons that Cherry Candy wears in the second game all suggest that Five Nights at Freddy's 2 might actually be a work of fan fiction rather than legitimate fiction. Anyway, this doesn't really matter because the point is to play as much as possible and discover what makes Five Nights at Freddy's 2 different from its predecessors. You'll discover that Scott Cawthon knows his audience, and he aims to make his game as terrifying as the teenage population in which he grew up.
If you want a good game to play on the Android mobile platform, Five Nights at Freddy's 2 provides a great alternative. It's not just a port of the arcade version, but also includes all the content that the original game has, as well as a number of bonus levels and extra items. The story is just as scary as the original one, with a couple of extra elements that will surely make the old-fashioned adventure feel modern. For fans of the series, Five Nights at Freddy's 2 will provide another great introduction to the series, but those who haven't played the original should definitely go back to play it first. You can download the free version from the Android Market or Gsoft Apps Store, and if you want to upgrade, you can purchase the game for a modest price.
