Although the trumpet is Harmony Smurf’s main instrument he has been notorious for experimenting with different sounds. In the classic episode “Smurphony in C” when Papa Smurf conducts a music session without him the smurfs decide that Harmony’s musical gift might not be suited for the trumpet. He’s always terribly off-key. The entire gang encourages him to test out a variety of instruments to see if his calling could be somewhere else. Fellow smurfs like Smurfette and Hefty give Harmony an assortment of instruments ranging from the harp to the triangle. The episode ends with the smurfs giving up and allowing Harmony to play in their symphony off-key. They all place corks in their ears to avoid hearing the jarring sound of his horn.
Beeline has tried to implement Harmony’s misadventures from the animated series with musical instruments into the Smurfs’ Village game. In Harmony Smurf’s Melody Match-up game players get an opportunity to change his reputation of being out of tune by tapping along to various melodies. Users can play foot tapping Smurfling Beat to a Starfish Wish and more to earn bonus XP. Each song features the sound of a different instrument similar to the series. When players tap in tune they receive a Smurftastic rating and a decent amount of experience points.
Special instruments like the guitar and drums can be purchased and placed next to Harmony’s Hut to boost XP earning potential. There’s no set limit of how many can be used. Players are allowed to buy multiple guitars and drums to position near the hut. Setting one guitar will only provide a player with about 7 or 8 additional experience points added to their score. It’s best to buy several guitars or drums to really benefit from the bonus. Most likely Beeline will be adding more instruments in the build menu for players to add to Harmony’s repertoire in the future. Until then players can have fun Smurfecting their musical skills with these two items.
