Security Breach: Fury’s Rage is a game that Scott Cawthon released as an apology for those who cannot wait for the scheduled for late 2012 Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach (which was delayed already twice at this moment). There have been other Five Nights At Freddy’s spin-off games (FNaF World, Freedy in Space 2), but I think for me personally, Security Breach: Fury’s Rage is the best. It is an 80s and early 90s style scrolling beat’em up and it is a great deal of fun.

The Game Review
The first thing to note about the game is the story. Scott Cawthon was clearly having a lot of fun with this as the story is about him waking up panicked that fans were mad the game is not completed so he has to get to work on it right away! There is also the story in the “game” where Freddy and the gang need to clean up the streets which has a real classic beat-em-up feel to it.
You can select from one of four playable characters in the game. You can play as Freddy, Monty, Roxanne, and Chica and each character is done in an exaggerated art style like they were taken from Streets of Rage. Each of the four characters has their own stats in power, stamina, luck, and special and you can earn XP which can help boost your stats as you play.
The controls in Security Breach: Fury’s Rage are very simple to figure out. You have an attack button, a jump button, a special attack button, and interestingly a block button which beat-em-ups like this usually do not have. There is also a button dedicated to calling in Animdude which you can use once you have picked up a mini Animdude.
There are fours stages in the normal difficulty and then there is an extra stage if you are playing in hard mode. If you have played games like Streets of Rage, Final Fight, or Double Dragon before, you will feel right at home here. You move through each level, putting a beating on the various bad guys that come your way before you take on a boss.
It is a very simple kind of beat-em-up although the addition of a block button does give you a bit more defense than you usually get in a game like this. The control is decent enough and the challenge does feel fair. My only criticism is that I wish that all of the enemies had a life bar as only the bosses in the game do.
Visually, I love the style of Security Breach: Fury’s Rage. It is done in a gritty 80s action movie kind of way and I love the overly muscled design of each character with Monty being my personal favorite. The enemy designs are quite clever too as they are all fun takes on characters we know from the franchise.
If you like old-school beat-em-ups and the FNAF franchise then you are going to like Security Breach: Fury’s Rage. This is a fun and well made game that is not scared to poke a little bit of fun at the fanbase which is something that I got a real kick out of as I was playing through it.
- The plot of the game is a lot of fun
- The controls feel nice and tight and there is more depth than you would think
- I liked how the game did not overstay its welcome
- It has a very cool style when it comes to the presentation
- I wish that all the enemies had a life bar
- One or two unlockable characters would have been cool
