The upcoming version 1.1.3 which was expected to be released on the first week of September has been delayed. According to beeline the new updates have been submitted to Apple last week and now they are waiting for Apple’s approval, which are expecting to be approved next week hopefully. Yet nothing was mentioned about Android updates.
In addition to that few screenshots of the upcoming update have been released showing some new exiting stuff. Although an additional level (level 39) was added, but no sign of the day and night cycle which was mentioned previously cannot be seen so far in the released Screenshots.
Preliminary vision of the new updates?
- Obviously, a new level (level 39) will be added in this update.
- New items will be added to the village such magic book stand, chest box, shovel, as a consequence more quest will be also added. In addition a Beetle‑on‑leaf will also be added to generate more XP.
- Papa Smurf hut’s colour will be changed to beige and will look more magical with the stars roof.
- Papa Smurf mini Game (Potion Game), will be also changed.
- Gifting neighbours and friends system will be improved, where you be able to see who gets his/her gif and who doesn’t , and when it’s time to gift, and probably to rate them.
Smurfs village Game has also took a part in the marketing campaign of the smurfs movie, Brainy who was the advisor and the brain storming of the village has turned out to a marketer and invites people to go the Movie theatre which was built previously in the village in order to watch the trailer of the Smurfs movie. Unfortunately for the movie theatre will be removed in the next update of the game which will be launched some times in September, but lets discover what was inside first.
It was years ago when our favorite blue buddies creatures entertained us on television. Fast-forward to 2011, now they could be seen on a bigger screen – and on 3D.
Originally the Smurfs was a well-known comic and television franchise created in 1958. And now, it’s one of the biggest movies this summer. The story still revolves around the 6 Smurfs that people used to love namely: Lazy Smurf, Grouchy Smurf, Brainy Smurf, Gutsy Smurf, Papa Smurf, and Smurfette. Let’s take a closer look at these lovely characters (before we get into a grueling movie review).
Gargamel’s greediness for the Smurfs’ blue essence started this flick. The Smurfs wanted to get away and escape for Gargamel’s harsh revenge, they ended up running lose in New York.
For kids (which this movie is really aiming for), this storyline might just be okay. But to the adults, this is barely appealing. A lot of movies have come up with this kind of concept already. Some have been successful at it, while some just barely got the perfect formula.
A point or two could be given on entertainment factor. The movie is entertaining (not that bad but not that excellent) in a sense that there’s an adventure and thrill factor of a run-and-chase between Gargamel and the Smurfs. However, the crude but (sorry to say this) a bit stupid puns and jokes didn’t make the movie seem appealing. Plus, the constant and often changing of words and/or syllables to ‘Smurf’ is just overrated.
GRAPHICS AND EFFECTS
The movie has probably redeemed itself on this factor. For originally-animated characters to come and visit the real world, it is amazing how the artists and animators have seen to it that the Smurfs would not look like aliens running around the city. However, they made every detail of them look life-like and not too off from what is ‘real’.
It was also smart to put this game into 3D. For one, 3D is the ‘in thing’ now. It’s quite a shame to put this one behind and not go with the trend. Another thing, the animation and the artistry of the Smurf characters would be better appreciated on 3D.
The movie is 50% appealing. With the effects and graphics, it looks really great and cool. Kids would love to see these tiny and cute blue creatures since they look sweet and endearing. The story would only appeal to kids – and with kids, it means those who are still too young to digest what a good story is or should be.
The other 50% of it being not appealing fell on the adults’ side. Obviously, adults would not appreciate much on animated films – but this is quite selective. There are animated films which are appealing to both kids and adults.
So the verdict? Probably 6-7 stars out of 10 for The Smurfs 3D.
With all the points stated above, the movie is just so-so. Many people (if you’ve read reviews other than this) has really pushed the movie down and forgot to appreciate anything from it at all. Although, yes, there are a lot of negative comments to be said, there are still good parts of the movie that people forgot to give credit for.
If your kids didn’t enjoy it that much, then it’s fine. But other kids found the joy in watching The Smurfs, too. The disappointment would probably on the older ones who have witnessed the original story on television. Seeing the film, their expectations were probably not up to it. However, to kids who innocently watch the movie without prior knowledge of its history, they would surely love the fun and adventure that was wrapped around it.
And for all the negative reviews there is, may they all be a lesson that film producers and directors should learn. If The Smurfs movie was a bit experimental on their part, they now know which part went right and which part went wrong.
This message can come up when you want to plant a new crop field or flower garden or shrub. It means you have not enough Smurfs to build the item.
The number of Smurfs living in your village equals the number of flower gardens + crop fields + shrubs (little trees that grow fruits) that you can have in the village. This does not mean the number of available Smurfs (i. e. Smurfs that are not working at the moment) but the total number of Smurfs.
To increase the number, build a house, upgrade a house or buy a Smurf from the Smurfberry Shop.
The game starts with introducing us to the backstory; Gargamel finally found the village of the Smurfs and destroyed it. Now all of the Smurfs are scattered into the forest and Papa gives the player the mission to rebuild the village, because the more mushroom houses are built, the more Smurfs can return from the forest to live in the new village.
But to make them stay in the village, the player does not only have to build houses for them, but also provide them with food. Therefore for every one of the little creatures in the village a garden can be build and used to grow food for them.
At the beginning of the game the player starts with one mushroom house for a worker smurf, the normal smurfs, Papa Smurfs Hut and a garden as well as 300 Coins. The first task given is to build a garden, grow blueberries and harvest them as soon as they are ready and the worker smurf has finished growing them.
On every level the player can build exactly one new mushroom house, so the goal of the game is to level up and build as many houses for the Smurfs as possible. This is achieved by earning XP (experience points), once a certain amount of XPs has been gathered, the player reaches the next level and a new mushroom house can be build. Moreover, generally with a new level also comes a new item (i.e. a bridge, a pond, flowers, etc.) that is unlocked and can henceforth be used to decorate the village. At first the amount of XP needed to reach the next level is fairly low, but with each level it increases and it becomes more difficult to level up.
Compatible only with: iPhone, iPod touch iPad with iOS 3.0 or later. Android version is now available for selected devices.
