Expanding the villageBy
After some time the village gets rather crowded with all the Smurfs living and working there, that is why the game offers a few ways to expand the village. Three of this expansion can be bought with Coins; one has to be bought with Smurfberries.
Land on the right side of the river
As soon as level 5 is reached, Papa Smurfs gives the task to build a small bridge across the river on the right side of the village, once the bridge has been finished (it takes 120 hours) the Smurfs can cross the river so that the land on the right side can be cultivated.
Land expansion to the left side of the river
The second expansion is to the left side of the village, in level 16 the big bridge is unlocked and can be build across the left river, so that the land on the left side can be accessed.
The last free expansion can be gained in level 22 when it unlocks the staircases, after placing them at the cliff top on the far right side of the village the Smurfs can use them to climb up the cliff.
Paid expansion to the south of the village
The last expansion gives 30% more land to the south of the village, it can be bought in the Smurfberry-Shop for 25 Smurfberries. With version 1.1.2 of the game another paid land expansion has been added. As with the previous one it is available for 25 Smurfberries and adds another 30% of land to the south of the village. That means this item can now be bought twice to add additional land to the bottom.
The beach section is another free (that is it can be obtained without the use of Smurfberries) land expansion that was added in version 1.1.1 of the app (and slightly modified in version 1.1.2). The beach is located at the far left side of the village and comes with special “summer” items to be placed on the beach (such as bath towels, etc.).
Despite the sand the beach is a normal land expansion, which means it can be used for all items, like the gardens, etc. and not only the beach accessoires
Expansion to the East of the Cliff
The Christmas 2011 version of the game (version 1.1.5 (iOS) and version 1.0.3 (Android)) has added a new free land expansion to the village.
This expansion is free, that means no Smurfberries are required to access the land. The Expansion is to the East of the Cliff Side and increases the space of the whole cliff side. Therefore, to get the expansion access to the cliff is required, that means the stone steps need to be placed at the cliff so the Smurfs can access it.
The Expansion itself is only available from level 26 onwards, before that the land is blocked by a timber and wood. After completing the current tasks from Papa Smurf (like, for example the Christmas quests) Papa will send out 5 Smurfs for 72 hours to search for supplies for Timber’s Mill.
Once the Smurfs return, it is possible to upgrade his Mill (by taping on) and Timber can clear the wood preventing you to access the new space.
To get to the island the village has to be at least on level 19 and there has to be access to the beach. If Papa Smurf’s quests have been done regularly (tasks from seasonal updates might take priority) the “Dreamy Smurf & Island” quest line begins.
The first of those quests is to go and look for Dreamy Smurf. If no Smurfberries are used to speed up those tasks, it will take quite a while to get to the island, the following quests have to be completed before it can be reached:
- Send 2 Smurfs into the forest for 12 hours
- Send 2 Smurfs into the forest for 24 hours
- Send 5 Smurfs for 5 hours to find Dreamy Smurf
- Send Dreamy on an adventure for 24 hours
- Play Miner Smurf’s Mini Game (to get metal for the compass)
- Send 3 Smurfs into the forest for 24 hours to gather magnetic rock
- Send Dreamy Smurf on an adventure for 72 hours
- Send Dreamy Smurf on an adventure for the third time for 72 hours
- Smurf to the island
Without the use of Smurfberries and if the next task is done immediately after the previous one has been finished it will take about 9 to 10 days to get the island.
The island itself can be expanded to the south for 25 Smurfberries, just like the mainland, though this expansion is at the moment only available once on the island.
Expansion to the west on the island (dam)
To get an expansion to the west on the island, a dam has to be build on the island to stop the water and make it possible for the smurfs to access that land.
The dam can be build on level 24 and costs 8000 Coins. It takes 168 hours to build. The dam can only be placed at a specific spot. After choosing the dam from the build menu, look for a shadow of it and built it at the exact same spot.
2nd Expansion to the west on the island (Cliff top Expansion)
From level 28 onwards, it is possible to build stone steps on the island’s left side to make it so that the smurfs can access the land on top of the cliff.
To build the stone steps, the dam expansion needs to be completed first. After that, and if the required level has been reached, the stone steps come available from the first shop in the build menu.
There are two kinds of stone steps, the big ones, which can only be placed at one certain spot at the top of the cliff, and the small ones, for which there are up to three places (if all south expansions have been bought) where they can be placed. Both versions of the steps cost 10.000 Coins and take 120 hours to build (60 hours if Hefty Smurf is on the mainland).
The Mountains can be reached once the Hot Air Balloon has been placed at level 25. The Hot Air Balloon, and with it the mountain expansion, is free and does not cost Smurfberries nor Coins. For more information, please read the article about the mountains or the hot air balloon.
