FPS Adventure (Weapon is a camera)

As the player, you are sent a plea for help from the faeries, communicated through their magic, to find a way to prove their existence and close down their evil hunters. You are led to items which will enable success in this mission – a special camera for taking faery photos to compile the evidence needed to save them, equipped with a lumina-daze flash which stuns the enemies before they can deal damage with their tazers!
