Review of Smurf Update 1.2.2
Beeline released the 1.2.2 update for Smurf Village on 23 June, 2012. This update came with a lot of goodies, mostly for the island, and a little for the main village. Firstly, level 48 was added to the game, giving players more room to gain xp. For the main village, Lucky Smurf was introduced and he can be purchased with 1200 coins. Lucky Smurf comes with an addictive game that can be played once every 23 hours and players can get exclusive items through Lucky Smurf’s boxes. There are a total of 3 rounds, the first round being free. If you don’t like your gift, you can play two more rounds at a cost of 5 smurfberries and 10 smurfberries respectively.
The biggest surprise in this update was the introduction of Farmer Smurf’s tractor, which was a long awaited feature everyone has been waiting for. Like Farmer Smurf, the tractor comes with a ‘Harvest All’ function, and if you have upgraded Farmer Smurf in the main village, the tractor will also have a ‘Plant All’ function. With this, planting and harvesting crops on the island can now be done with a breeze.
Then, a free land expansion was also added for the island by simply placing steps towards the west cliff at a cost of 10000 coins each. If you have Hefty Smurf in your main village, the time required for each stairs to be completed is approximately 120 hours, or at a cost of 10 to 11 smurfberries per stair. When the stairs are completed, players will have access to a whole new land on the mountains, giving them more space to build and decorate the island. In fact, the island is now much larger with land expansions and things will not be as cramped as before.
Another new feature introduced was Smurfette’s summer house which can be built on the island at a cost of 30 smurfberries. With this, Smurfette can now visit the island and her house comes with a mini game. The mini game is simple as all players need to do is to tap the lovesick smurfs they can find within 10 seconds to gain xp.
The MIAB quests, while still bugged, has a slight improvement made to it. Players can now see what reward they can get upon completion of the MIAB once they tap the bottle. However, as it is still bugged, one might not be so eager to complete it at the moment. The totem pole has also been fixed and players who have gotten it can once again control the rain and they will find that thunder and lighting effects have been added to the island. There’s also a jumping dolphin available for purchase at a pricey 100 smurfberries which gives 600 xp twice a day. A swing chair was also added as a limited sale item for 20 smurfberries and if a smurf walks nearby, he will sit on it.
the scrolling Beeline “Hive News & Information” banner has been replaced with a simple flashing icon with an exclamation point. Also, Beeline reduced the frequency of the pop-up ads that appear when you load the game. They are still there, but should not appear as often as before.
There are also new quests for Papa Smurf, Dreamy, Clockwork and Grouchy Smurf, and with so many new stuff to explore, players will be kept busy until the next update. While there are still bugs existent, this is an overall great update!
