For those who were not familiar who these cute blue skinned creatures are. (Well, who doesn’t know them actually?) The Smurfs was first introduced on the 23rd of October, year 1958. It was a series of comic strips created by Pierre “Peyo” Culliford of Belgium. The concept of the term “Smurf” came from the Dutch translation of an inaudible language that Peyo and his friend created during a meal. Peyo forgot the word “salt” and asked his friend to pass him the “schtroumpf” instead. They had a laugh about it and soon, they were speaking in “schtroumpf”. When it was translated to “Smurf”, Peyo had incorporated the name with a character he introduced in the comic strip he was writing entitled “Johan and Pirlouit”. The character appeared as a blue-skinned humanoid in a white robe. He soon focused on the blue-skinned character and created The Smurfs. Its launch made it big and soon there were comic and television franchises of the said cartoon. Toys, miniature replicas, models, and games were being made amongst other merchandise in honor of the adorable blue-skinned smurfs. Just lately, they became more famous when their movie was launched if I’m not mistaken, August this year, it was a really cute movie and now they’re on Facebook 🙂
To give you the game’s overview.. You need to help Papa Smurf create a special potion to make Gargamel forget. You’ll build elaborate towns in new and unique locations in order to find the special ingredients needed for the potion. Starting out in the forest, you’ll need to clear away weeds, shrubs, and thorns to establish your very own town with amazing workshops, buildings and decorations.As your towns become happier and happier, famous Smurfs will come to visit you with exciting quests.
First, you need to choose your character. You can either be a common guy Smurf or the only girl in the Smurf Village, Smurfette.
To get started, Papa Smurf will walk you through on how to cut weeds in the forest so you can start building your own Smurf Village. You just need to click on the weeds in order for your character to cut it. There are weeds that will be cut out on the first click but most of them will need 2 to 3 clicks.
After you have done smashing rocks, cutting weeds, thorns and shrubs, it will give you different kinds of resources that you will need to build things. It will also give you Smurfberries that you will need to trade into something at the shop. I usually trade Smurfberries for energy so I can do more things. Unlike with The Sims Social that has the maximum energy of 15, The Smurfs & Co. has 30. More energy means more quests to be completed.
Papa Smurf will also walk you through the Shop. You can click the Shop at the lower portion of your screen. That is where you can buy stuff for your village.
You just need to click buy and click the space where you want to put the buildings, workshops and decorations to. When you click Shop, you will have there 5 tabs. Featured, Buildings, Workshops, Decorations and Kits. Featured includes the newest addition to the Shop, mainly having those stuff that you need to buy with Facebook Credits or real money. 2nd tab is for Buildings. This tab includes Smurf houses and things that will help your Smurfs happy. 3rd tab is for Workshops. This includes the places where Smurfs work. Each Smurf will have their respective workplaces. 4th tab is for Decorations. This tab is mainly for stuff to make the village beautiful and to enhance your village’s appearance. Lastly, the Kits tab, this includes resources that you will need to build things on the village and mostly for Facebook credits as well.
When you have already decided which to buy and which place would you want the building to be situated to, you need to build it. The more expensive the building or the workshop is, the more clicks you need to build it.
After you have done constructing, you need to finish building it. That is where you will be needing resources. When the resources says collected, you have enough resources to finish the building. You just need to click on Finish. When you don’t have enough resources, you need to ask friends to help you out or you can ask them to send you the resources through gifts.
In order to gain resources and coins from your buildings and workshops, each of them needs to be supplied. When you see a basket at the top of the building, it’s already empty so you just need to click the building so you can supply it.
Every decorations, buildings and workshops that you will be adding on the village will generate Happiness points. There are certain numbers of Happiness points that you need to earn for a new Smurf to be added on your village’s population. The more Happiness points, the more Smurfs will be unlocked and the more coins you will be getting.
Also, there are quests that you need to complete in order for you to get enough experience to go to the next level. Quests are located at the left side of your screen or you can click a Smurf that has a question mark right above its head for a new quest.
There are quests that are easy and there are quests that needs a lot of hard work like smashing rocks, cutting weeds, thorns and shrubs in order for you to gain the resources that are needed to complete a certain quest. There are quests that will need help from friends as well.
Of course, you will get rewards for completing quests and if you have leveled up. Rewards differ on the difficulty of the quests.
