Five Nights at Freddy's review

Five Nights at Freddy's(or Fnaf as some write it for reduced space) is as came where you are a security guard at pizzeria where you must manage power to various systems in order to stop crazy animatronics from killing you. The story is that you are security guard at restaurant Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, a place similar to other places like Chuck E Cheese. However at Freddy's the animatronics wander the restaurant and if they see you they will stuff you in to a animatronic costume, killing you in process. IT's you job to last from 12 midnight to 6am(in game this is either 8 and a half minutes or 4 and half, depending on your version), and you can't move from your office either. You can close the doors to your office and you can turn on lights and check your camera to slow them down, BUT you have limited power and each of these actions cause you to speed up in your power consumption, and if you hit 0% it's game over(Unless you've got 5 seconds to 6am or something). First and foremost this game is SCARY. Although the sense of defenselessness, limited power, and creepy animatronics all help this game to feel scary, In my opinion the scariest thing is the atmosphere. The sound of the animatronics bumping into things as they move, the flickering lights, and Freddy's terrifying laugh all make this game freaky. Your only friend is a former employee who calls you each night to give you advice on what to do. And if couldn't tell by the title you only have  to survive for five nights before beating the game(there are two bonus nights though). Five Nights at Freddy's is a truly terrifying game that will leave you with chills long after you've played it. I give this game 4.75 out of 5 stars

Broken Age: Act 2 Review.

Broken Age: Act 2 is the second and final part of Broken Age. Once again this has two parts of the story Vella and Shay. Unlike the first act though you'll have to switch between them to finish the game. The Story in this is pretty good although not as great as the first act. I can't actually reveal anything about this act's story with out completely spoiling the first one's. The puzzles are pretty fun in this game, but some are just downright unfair. In order to play this effectively I suggest you have a Pencil and Paper handy. This act wraps up the story nicely and answers any question posed through the game. All in all it is a good ending. I give this 4.25 out 5 stars. By Nick Starceski. Reviewed for ipad

Bastion Review

Bastion is a action game where you use various weapons in order to obtain items throughout the levels. The story of this game is your character is a survivor of an disaster called the calamity which broke his world to pieces and now you work with a old man called Rucks to get cores that power a device called Bastion which can supposedly rebuild the world. One of the best parts of this game is the narrator, Rucks. His voice is a constant throughout the game and he explains levels, tells the story, and sets the overall tone of the game. Another great thing about this game is the music, which energizes battles and is just really awesome. Using cores in the Bastion allows you to upgrade your home base with various structures that perform different tasks, like upgrading your weapons. This game can be challenging at times but I never felt that it was unfair. I also suggest you play this game with headphones on, so you won't miss anything. I give this game 4.75 our 5 stars.    By Nick Starceski. reviewed for iPhone/iPad
