You play Gregory, a child who is left behind in Freddy Fazbear's Mega Pizzaplex when it closes. Also inside the building is Vanessa, the night guard, and a killer dressed as a bunny who is under the influence of a mind-controlling glitch. In addition to these human characters, there are also the staple animatronics; Montgomery Gator, Roxanne Wolf, Glamrock Chica and more are also affected by this glitch and will try and hunt you down. The only unaffected robot is Glamrock Freddy, who will, along with the night guard, try and get you to safety.
Play involves exploring the sprawling 80's-inspired Pizzaplex, complete with a playable indoor golf course, racetrack, laser tag and more. You sneak around, completing missions and solving puzzles. You can knock over items to cause a distraction to the animatronics, allowing you to make an escape, similar to Hello Neighbour. You can also go inside Freddy and use him as a mech suit to fight against the other animatronics and use his strength and speed to your advantage. there is also a changing day and night cycle within the Pizzapex itself, which changes the behaviour of some animatronics, turning potential allies into enemies and making areas of safety into hazards. As you progress you unlock more areas, including the sewers and security offices.
It's a game that takes the Five Nights at Freddy's series in a new direction, while still featuring all the detailed and mysterious lore, storytelling, secrets and jump scares that the series is known for.
11+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. Those with the maturity and desire for some scary gameplay this is a good age-appropriate match. You need to be able to handle tension as well as be good at exploring open areas. There are also some reaction based fight encounters you need to deal with.
There aren't difficulty settings, and some parts of the game are very difficult. You can only save at certain areas, and you need to hold down the button for about 3 seconds to successfully save. Later on in the game, you can choose to exit the Pizzaplex for one ending, or stay in and try and get the rest. At this point, you can no longer save or recharge Freddy, meaning the game is both harder and you can lose hours of progress if you are caught.
There are many functions that require you to hold down buttons, sometimes for several seconds, that are essential to the gameplay. however, sprinting and sneaking, two very important actions, are toggle-only, which means that you don't need to hold down the button at all for them.
There are very frequent visual effects that can be distracting or disorienting, such as the loud jump scares, intense chromatic aberration when certain characters are nearby, and bright white flashes. In addition, the camera system has an effect that makes it look like an old-fashioned recording, which can make it hard to see.
