Land Expansion OverviewBy
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.
- 1 Mainland Expansions
- 2 Island Expansions
- 3 Mountain Expansions
- 4 Space Expansions
- 5 Expansions Overview and required levels
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.
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 next 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.
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.
Paid mainland expansion to the south
As of now Explorer on the Island Update (version 1.6.0 on iOS and 1.4.7.a on Android) the paid expansions can now be bought a total of 6 times. The first four expansions cost 25 Smurfberries each, while the last two cost 50 Smurfberries each.
The island can be reached via Dreamy Smurfs ship from level 22 onwards. For more information please read out articles about “The Island” or “How to find Dreamy Smurf and How to get to the Island “.
Expansion to the west on the island (dam)
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 (Clifftop Expansion)
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).
3rd Expansion to the west on the island (Rope Bridge Expansion)
The Mountains can be reached once the Hot Air Balloon has been placed at level 25.
1st Mountain Stairs Expansion to the right side
There are wooden stairs available in the build menu for 500 Coins. They need to be placed on the right side (a shadow indicates where to place them with two available spots where the stairs can be put) and it takes 48 hours (24 hours with Hefty Smurf in the mainland) to complete.
When the stairs have finished building the Smurfs can reach the higher plateau on the mountain. This space also includes the Watchtower, which works like the Old Windmill.
2nd and 3rd Mountain Stairs Expansion to the right side
The Lucky Smurf Island Update (version 1.3.7 on iOS) included a second expansion for the mountains.
Buying wooden stairs and placing them at the edge of the screen on the right side will once again expand the available space. This expansion is available for 500 Coins and it takes 48 hours to build the stairs (24 hours if Hefty Smurf is on the mainland).
With the fourth mountain wonder (Miner’s Mining Machine) a 3rd land expansion became available. It is once again realized by placing wooden stairs at the edge of the right side of the screen.
It is now possible to place six wooden stairs in total in the mountains. There are predefined places where to put them (a green shadow of the stairs when placing them will indicate the spots where to put them).
Mountain Winter Expansion (4th Wooden Stairs Expansion)
The Thanksgiving 2013/Nanny Smurf Update (version 1.4.6 on iOS, 1.3.3a on Android) included a fourth cliff top expansion for the mountains.
The wooden stairs from the Structures section in the build menu can once again be placed at the edge of the screen, i.e. the cliff of the third expansion, to get access to a fourth cliff top. This area is now so high up in the mountains, that it is covered in snow.
This snow is, unlike when the mainland is covered with snow during winter, permanent and will not be removed.
This means that there are now a total of eight spots available where it is possible to place the wooden stairs. As usual, the winter expansion also includes a new wonder, the mountain chalet.
5th Mountain Stairs Expansion
The 5th and last mountain stairs expansion was added with the King Smurf update.
It is also a winter expansion, meaning that there will be snow all year long in that area. This expansion contains King Smurf’s castle (see the article “King Smurf’s Castle” for more information).
The expansion is a bit smaller and has only about 2/3 of the space of the other mountain expansions. It has been confirmed by Beeline that this will be the last mountain expansion.
Paid Mountain Expansions to the South
Just like on the mainland there are also paid expansions available for the mountain area. Each expansion gives about 25% additional space (in relation to the original space, not the already expanded space).
As of the “Explorer on the Island” Update (iOS version 1.6.0. and Android version 1.4.7.a) there are a total of three paid expansions available.
On the mountain each expansion costs 25 Smurfberries.
The Swoofs Planet is a new area/expansion to the village. It can be reached by building a rocket. The rocket is available from the build menu for 2000 coins and requires the village to be at least on level 22.
As it is already known from reaching the preexisting areas (island and mountain), the spaceship cannot just be build, but there is a series of quests from Papa Smurf that have to be completed first.
Just like the other areas, there are also expansions available on the Swoofs Planet but they work a bit differently then in all of the other areas. They require the completion of a star constellation, a set amount of Swoofs and stardust. To read more about how this kind of land expansions work please see the article “Expanding the available land in space“.
There are, however, also “normal” expansions available in space that work similar to the expansions in the other areas.
1st Eastern Space Expansion
The first of these expansions is obtained by placing a metal bridge across the lava river on the right side of the planet. Once the bridge has been build (it takes 48 hours without Hefty Smurfs time reduction) a new area containing the first space wonder will become available.
2nd Eastern Space Expansion
The second expansion to the east of the Swoof Planet that does not require the completion of the constellation was made available with the Baker Smurf Update (iOS Version 1.5.0 and Android version 1.3.5.a) and is obtained by placing a metal or a cookie bridge across the lava river on the right side of the planet. Once the bridge has been build (it takes 48 hours without Hefty Smurfs time reduction) a new area containing the second space wonder, the cake tower, will become available.
3rd Eastern Space Expansion
The third expansion to the east of the Swoof Planet that does not require the completion of the constellation was made available with the Pirate Smurf Update (iOS Version 1.5.1 and Android version 1.3.7.a) and is obtained by placing a metal or a cookie bridge across the lava river on the right side of the planet. Once the bridge has been build (it takes 48 hours without Hefty Smurfs time reduction) a new area containing the third space wonder, the aquarium, will become available.
