App description: Fairy Trails is an augmented reality game that opens a window to the fairy world. Turn your iPhone or iPod touch into a magical creature-detector with Fairy Trails!

Shake your device to power the detector and then scan your surroundings. Fairy Trails uses the camera and compass of the iPhone 3G S to merge the real world and game world in spectacular ways! For iPod Touch owners without a built-in camera, a stunning forest setting is rendered for the fairies to inhabit.

Simply tap the creatures to collect them in your jars. The more fairies you capture, the more power you'll have to detect the new, faster fairies.


Kids of all ages will be enchanted with Fairy Trails!


iPhone 3GS - Full range of motion using compass-based movement
Older iPhones and all iPod Touches - Full accelerometer-based vertical movement

iPhone OS 3.1 required

Augmented reality games are always fun.

This ... looks like twice-fried ass though. Way, way below the standards I'd expect from Freeverse. What the hell is up with the aliasing/marks all over the fairy bodies like a horrible cut & paste job?

Is that seriously a Freeverse game? It looks awful. I don't care that I can have fairies flying around in front of me if they don't look halfway decent.

Hey all,
Yes, Fairy Trails is out now! This was a fun side project we used to explore the Aug Reality tech...it's more of an entertainment app then a full on game and geared more towards the younger set.

Speaking of augmented reality, what sort of AR games would you guys like to see made?
