    did you try it?

    simple but nice free shooter. tap to shoot, shake to reload. The best part is when you kill several tooth fairies with a single shot. The worst is that it doesn't seem to record scores at all.

    BTW, I still haven't seen the movie!

    The Movie is a blast,
    the game is senseless and cheap.

    I don't think the game is that bad, yes it's very basic, but it's the kind of simple game you play multiple times to improve the records... like papi jump, only with taps :p

    The game is just a reminder to NOT try free apps.

    @wiesse, the game is a reminder of how rediculously retarded hellboy is.. Free games can be really quite good.. Look at Jelly Car, Trace, Pakoon III, Lock 'n' Roll etc. All very high quality..

    Also, I havn't seen Hellboy I, but I got bored watching the second one and stopped halfway because it was just stupid.. just my opinion, I'm not big on those types of movies tho..

    Yet again, the iphone/touch isn't taken seriously by some developers

    The game doesn't work on the 1st gen iPod touch.

    So, in addition to developers not taking this platform seriously to their own detriment, these goobers split the market.

    Morons. I know it's free, so it's not like they're losing money, but...still...this kind of thing makes one lose confidence in the developers. If they don't care about 1st gen iTouch owners, why in the hell should us 1st gen iTouch owners care about them or any of their future releases?

    Tooth Fairy Terror

    Hey guys!

    I'm a new iphone/ipod touch app developer and my first app just got published to the App Store! It's called Hellboy II: The Golden Army - Tooth Fairy Terror. If you've seen the movie it's about the part where they fight the tooth fairies in the auction house.

    It's a pretty simple app. Fairies fly at you and you tap them to shoot, and shake the phone to reload. If you get kill streaks you can earn healthups and a larger max ammo.

    My dark masters at the company I work for bade me post on several iphone/ipod forums to get the word out. It's a free game, so please check it out:

    Thanks for Reading,
    Scott McCoy

    Hi Scott,

    unfortunately for you, it seems I am the only one that found your product amusing in its simplicity (I like tapping fast... tap tap revenge rules).

    anyway... I don't know if it has any value for you, but it's still on my phone.

    Actually... I liked the game for what it was... Fun and Free.

    I'm not sure what people are looking for in a free game, but I enjoyed it. That doesn't mean that I can see myself going back to it again and again, but for a few hours it was something fun to do and my son liked it enough to put it on his device.

    Is this game earth shattering? No. It is setting a new mark for free games everywhere? Again, no. But some of the people on this thread have made it seem like it's a freaking DS Effects game.

    A high score board is the only thing that might be missing as to something I'd keep for more than a few days, but, come on...

    Hi Spiffy,

    You'll be glad to know we took your review very seriously, went out and bought a first gen iPod touch and tested the game on it. It apparently worked all along on the first gen, we just didn't couldn't afford a first gen during development and so didn't want to flag it in the appstore as working for that device if we hadn't tested it on it. It's now flagged for first gen users to download, so get splatting! :D

    Anyways thanks for the feedback, it is appreciated!

    Thanks sam! I'm glad you like it. That's pretty much what we had in mind; a simple game that's quick enough for you or your grandma to play while standing in line at quiznos and try to beat your personal best at. I can usually get to 200 fairies killed, sometimes 230 or so. One of my bosses can consistently get to 250!

    Here's a little trick to help you out. A streak of 10 is worth 1 point of health, and a streak of 20 will upgrade your max ammo but can only be done twice. So, once you get the first ammo upgrade, let one of the fairies hit you to reset your streak and then get to a 20 streak again. You'll have full ammo upgrades and no net health lost!

    We really wanted to add stuff like Liz's fire ability as a touch-and-drag attack and a high scores site but since it was to be a free game we couldn't get all our ideas in. I think our next game will be much better!

    I very much appreciate all you guys' feedback and criticism, and also thanks to whoever moved my "hi guys" post into this thread. :)

    Geez guys, its free, give the dev a break. A lot of hard work goes into these things, and they aren't even trying to make money off of it (yet, at least :)). If you are going to criticize the game, at least say what you think could improve rather than blindly saying that it is terrible.
