Towards the end of “Time Cheat”


One of the most traditional Cheats in time dependent games is the so called “Time Cheat’’, where the players will be able to change time in order to speed or slow up the game events.

Likewise   in Smurfs’ village Game  “Time Cheat” has been proven to work perfectly, so by changing the time forward with couple of taps on your iPhone, iPad or iTouch,  the players  will be able to get their crops, fruits and vegetables ready instantly and don’t have to  wait long time. [pullquote]

… there are penalties for manipulating the device clock. Beeline[/pullquote]

Growing the crops instantly could be done legally using  Smurfberries which you need to pay for them real money.  Therefore Capcom had to put an end to it, so what were their actions?

Firstly, they warned the Cheaters either by popping up an alert message upon launching the game as ““BAD DEVICE TIME”, or  via a message  via Papa Smurf, whenever he detects changes in time,  in which   Papa Smurf will  tell you, “I’m disappointed you have been overworking the Smurfs by changing your clock be careful or your Smurfs will leave the village”.

This message was seen in the earlier updates as a just as a friendly message from papa Smurf to scare the cheaters, however, in the recent updates  (1.1.1 upwards) , few  actions were indeed added to the game; where many people have noticed that are not getting gifts from Jokey and their snails and caterpillars were not producing any XP.

Initially was thought that the punishment was extremely sever as they wont get gifts form Jokey for weeks or months, but it turned out today that the penalties will take up to a week   according to Beeline.

Beeline has mentioned today in one of their support boards that: “… there are penalties for manipulating the device clock. The severity of the penalty and length depend on how often we catch a player changing the clock. Worst case, the game usually goes back to normal in a week or so.”

So in conclusion that   Beeline-Capcom (producer/ developer) are aware with this cheat and they have started to fight it, so be carful it may lead to a future ban for those who over use this cheats.

    I time cheated once it worked but about ten minutes later I lost jockeys rewards for a few days and after that he kept giving me bombs for another few days I was level 12 at that point so don't time cheat

  2. Koen says:

    Now that summertime is active, I get the BAD DEVICE TIME message. How to get rid of it?

    • Smurfette says:

      Have you checked that you have the correct time zone set on your device? Also make sure that your device sets the summertime automatically and not change it manually by adjusting the clock

    • Stroumpfette says:

      What is Worm? What operating system is on your tablet? If it is Android and you didn't have any backup software installed, you'll have to restart the game from Level 1. If you purchased Smurfberries, they can be resent to your new game ID, but you'll have to submit your Google Wallet receipts as proof of purchase when Beeline asks for them. You can open a ticket with Beeline at when you're ready to restart the game.

    I cheat many times and get jokey's daily gift and I am now level 27

    • Stroumpfette says:

      I wouldn't brag about it. Eventually, the game safeguards will kick in, and you won't get SB for your Smurfy Wonders and other things will stop working. We STRONGLY DISCOURAGE cheating on this site.

    My WoffordKie wife has never cheated and it gave her the Alarm. Bad, very bad… She even lost all her tracker smurf xp.

    • Stroumpfette says:

      If she changed the date or time manually for any reason, it would trigger the alarm. Make sure her device usset to have the satellites sync her date/time automatically. Even if she travels for business to a different time zone, satellites will automatically update her clock. The penalties should go away after a few days.

  6. Jack says:

    I have cheated once and NEVER wants to cheat again

  7. ANNOYED SMURF says:

  8. arianrae says:

    Really annoyed right now. I have NEVER time cheated but Jokey wont give me a gift and my snail is giving me nothing. I did a search to see what was going on and here I am…..

    • Stroumpfette says:

      Open a ticket with Beeline and see if they have any thoughts as to what might be going wrong.

  9. Guest says:

  10. adi says:

    • Stroumpfette says:

      You can find the hopscotch grid under the Decorations/Furniture build menu once you're on the island. You can purchase it with coins.

      • Alfa says:

        sorry, but what is decoration/furniture build menu??
        I still not have it yet..

        sorry for my bad english

        • Smurfette says:

          You go to the menu, there are different categories, choose decoration and then furniture (or whatever the equivalent is in your language)

  11. Tiff says:

    "BAD DEVICE TIME" So I Heard About This Time Cheat. I Wanted To Try It So I Did. I Changed The Date For Some Potatoes To See What It Was Like. I Changed The Date Back And I Opened My Smurfs Village. It Said "BAD DEVICE TIME" But I Have It Set To Real Time. How To I Make That Message Go Away?

  12. niky says:

    is there cheats for getting free smurf berries?

  13. din says:

    I sometimes play this game, but change my time frequently as I travel from Sydney to Perth most days(FIFO). get this "disappointed" msg every time :( this makes me disappointed on the game :)

    • Stroumpfette says:

      You should never change the time on your device. You should have your phone set up to sync with the GPS satellites. When you switch time zones, the phone will automatically update the time for you, and you won't receive the message from Papa Smurf. This is well documented that if you change your time/date manually, the game will institute measures to penalize players who are cheating.
