Freeverse Announces the Fairy Trails App: Augmented Reality Game on the App Store

BROOKLYN, NY - September 28, 2009 - Freeverse today announced the Fairy Trails App, a beautiful augmented reality game for iPhone and iPod touch, leveraging the latest technology in iPhone OS 3.1 including camera and compass access.

Shake the device to power the detector and then scan your surroundings for magical creatures. Fairy Trails uses the camera and compass of iPhone 3GS to merge the real world and game world in spectacular ways. For iPod touch users, a stunning forest setting is rendered for the fairies to inhabit.

Simply tap the fairies, fireflies and butterflies to collect them in your jars. The more fairies you capture, the more power you'll have to detect the special quicker fairies!

Ian Lynch Smith, president of Freeverse said, "The iPhone's ability to allow us to merge 3D game elements with real world, real time environments, opens up tremendous possibilities for new games and apps. We're really excited about this new technology and have justbegun to scratch the surface of its potential."

Fairy Trails is tailored to provide a compelling gaming experience on iPhone and iPod touch models.
