Five Nights at Freddy's 2 is a survival horror videogame developed and published by Scott Cawthon. It is the second installment in the Five Nights at Freddys saga. It is unclear if it is a sequel or a prequel, but all the given information in the game, it seems to point to a prequel. If you were afraid of the animatronics of the previous release, prepare yourself for what this title has in store for you. You have already met Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie the Bunny, Chica the Chicken and Foxy the Pirate, but now, some new friends, 6 more to be exact, are in Freddy Fazbear's Pizza to make your night watch a real nightmare.
In addition, not only new animatronics add fear to this installment, but also one of the new terrifying features: there are zero doors. If you remember the mechanics of the previous game, you already know that you are a night watcher in the pizzeria and that your mission is to survive the attacks of the animatronics. For this, you could close the doors, turn on the lights and watch the cameras. This time, you have no doors to close. Your only defense is a Freddy mask, a flashlight, and of course, the cameras.
Nevertheless, I have good news for you; the power will not run out, it seems that the owners have finally paid the bills. The batteries of your flashlight do run out of power, but at least, you can turn on the lights of the air vents and put your mask on. I know you will not feel very safe just with a mask, but it's something. Take into account that just two of the ten animatronics are immune to the mask, the rest of them will not attack you if you wear it.
Knowing this, you may think that this horror game is very easy since you only have to wear the mask all the time. Well, do not fool yourself, it is not so easy: Foxy and The Puppet are the ones you must fear. You know Foxy the Pirate from the previous videogame. This animatronic has always been a bit tricky since he sprinted to your office and killed you instantly. This time he does not run, but he does not matter if you wear the mask, he will reach you and slaughter you if you do not use the flashlight on him. The Puppet does not move unless the Music Box stops sounding. You have to wind it constantly to avoid this, or the Puppet will activate and go to your office, and there is nothing you can do against the Puppet once he sees you.
Let me introduce you to the new animatronics you will see once you download Five Nights at Freddy’s 2. There are remodeled versions of the animatronics you already know and two new ones. The remodeled versions have a more kid-friendly aspect, but they are as dangerous as the old ones. They are Toy Freddy, Toy Bonnie, Toy Chica and The Mangle. As mentioned, they are new versions of the old ones, and all except The Mangle have similar patterns of behavior. Toy Freddy, Toy Bonnie and Toy Chica start moving on the first night, and they roam the restaurant before they reach the office. They will not attack you if you wear the mask. In regards to The Mangle, he does not run as Foxy did in five Nights at Freddy's, but this animatronic will appear in the ceiling of the office, and in the air vents. Fortunately, the mask also works with him.

Let's talk about the new ones, that are more annoying than dangerous, even though one of them cannot be stopped once activated. The first one is BB (Balloon Boy). He is the only harmless animatronic; he will not attack you but he will disconnect the air vents lights and your flashlight. Thus, this animatronic leaves you defenseless against Foxy (who can only be stopped with the flash) and the animatronics that approach you through the air vents. He is activated on the second night, and his starting location is the Game Area (CAM 10). Fortunately, he will leave you alone if you put on the Freddy mask.
Finally, we have The Puppet, a kind of Jack in the Box toy. He is the one who will spoil your strategy. He is in the Prize Corner (CAM 11), and he is inactive as long as the Music Box is sounding. You can wind up the box remotely from the CAM 11. However, you cannot do it if you wear the mask because the mask impedes you to watch the cameras. If for any reason, you forget or you cannot wind up it, The Puppet will activate, and he will go after you with no possibility of stopping him. So, if the music stops, consider yourself already dead.
