Many Smurfs village players who just updated to the last version (Halloween update) are experiencing a game crash. Both platform users (Apple iOS and Android) are encountering this problem, whatever devices they are using, iPhone 4s, iPhone 4, iPads, iPods, tablets, and other Android devices. Beeline is already aware with this problem and they are investigating what is the cause of this game crash issue. Many other lucky players didn’t face such a problem and they can travel to the island with any problem. Read More→
The items available for coins are seasonal items, such as pumpkins, ghosts etc. will most like disappear with the next update.
The items bought with Smurfberries, such as the Spook House or the Halloween Customizations will stay in the village and not disappear, so it is likely that they can only be bought with this Halloween versions and will in future updates not be available to buy anymore. Read More→

Usually the Android update goes live at least 2 weeks after the release of Apple iOs version (sometimes longer). Now it seems like Beeline ‘s development team is getting well established and have things under-control.

Finally it seems like Apple team have approved the submitted version of smurfs village Halloween update. Many apple iOs players got the icon of their game center changed already. This is a good indication of the update release, hopefully it will be live in few hours. This time the Smurfs village English version icon looks different than the Japanese once which was released earlier. The icon features one of the smurfs (not clear who is?), scared and running away. Last year Scaredy smurf was introduced in Halloween update and was featured in the update icon, however this year no new character will be added. Read More→
While Smurfs village Japanese edition was released few days ago featuring the Halloween theme, the English edition players are still waiting impatiently for the Halloween version release. It is confirmed that there will be a Halloween edition, and apparently the update was already submitted to Apple and is waiting for Apple approval in order to be live. The new update is expected to be live anytime today or tomorrow. Read More→
Apparently this time Beeline development team have worked hard in order to meet their deadlines and to surprise Smurfs village fans. Today Halloween update new icon has already appeared in game center for those who have the Japanese edition. The icon shows a smurf waves in the dark. Behind him you can see flying bats and the moon. So far nothing has been revealed by Beeline, but we are expecting to get this year bats, and for sure Jack-o’-lantern. Last year Scaredy smurf was introduced to the village which gives you 400 XP daily in the dark as well as Lone Smurf which visited the village for a short stint and then left. Many Halloween items also were introduced last year like gravestones, Halloween Sweet Gifts, Thanksgiving statue, and many more. We are expecting this year similar seasonal items in the main village as well as in the island. Read More→
Upon the launch of the Halloween update (version 1.1.4), the two added items jack-o’-lanterns and gravestones seemed to be not enough for a monthly update, which rises a lot of fans complains. However, as usual playing smurfs village not only requires creativity but also some curiosity is required. This time beeline came up with a nice innovative surprise, so changing your profile image in the village, allows you to get access to more hidden decorative items.
Since this update is dedicated to both Halloween and Thanksgiving, the secret items can be unlocked if you buy pumpkin.
The unlocked items consist of Thanksgiving pack which have the following items:
- Festive cornucopia 20 coins[pullquote] …they may be removed in the next update and people will be out the coins and berries if they bought the swing.- Beeline[/pullquote]
- Thanksgiving turkey statute (similar to last year once) which costs 15 smurfberries.
- A swing costs 10 smurfberries
- Wooden gazebo cost 4000 coins
In order to get Thanksgiving secret pack:
Tap on the profile picture on the top left corner
Select one of the four Thanksgiving/ Halloween user avatars, like pumpkin, the turkey, leaf etc.. For those who have bought the Thanksgiving Statue last year (and therefore already have the pumpkin user picture) need to put it in storage first, then restart the App.
Tap buy you will not get charged for buying thanks giving pack, but you will get charged ( smurfberris and coins) if you buy swings, gazebos, …. This is only available for version 1.1.4, and it will be changed in the next update (Please read Beeline statements in the last paragraphs in this article).
and voila you will get Thanksgiving Pack
An example of a village contains the Thanksgiving secret items can be seen below:
- It is was confirmed by Beeline representative that the hidden decorative items were not made available in purpose, it is just an other glitch:”the gazebo, swing set, and cornucopia aren’t “hidden items”. They were not meant to be found and aren’t supposed to be accessible yet. The only reason they can now be obtained at all is through the menu exploit. ” . Also they mentioned that the items can be removed in the next update :”Worst case scenario they may be removed in the next update and people will be out the coins and berries if they bought the swing“.
- Also this hidden items trick seems to be buggy, it doesn’t work always. So you need to close all the apps in your iPhone or iPad or restart your device and try if it doesn’t work.
Lone Smurf is the local superhero of the Smurf’s Village. She was introduced in in the Halloween 2011 update, i.e. version 1.1.4 (iOS version numbers, iOS only) of the app.
Lone Smurf is in reality Smurfette. After she gives a task to mix a purple potion for her in Papa Smurf’s Potion Mini Game she turns into Lone Smurf.
From that moment on she gives tasks and saves the village from Gargamel as Lone Smurf. After a couple of tasks (about three) from her have been completed, she once again asks for a purple potion that will then turn her back into Smurfette.
Lone Smurf can only be obtained if Smurfette is living in the village (i.e. her hut has been bought). Lone Smurf has Smurfettes “heart symbol” above her head and gives 15 XP to every Smurf close to her every couple of hours, just like Smurfette does. So that means you will not miss out on Smurfette’s extra XP while she is Lone Smurf.
Scaredy (scardy) smurf is a new special character which was introduce to the smurfs village in version 1.1.4 (Halloween update). You can get Scaredy for free if you are in level 12 upwards. You will get this quest from Papa Smurf to find him ( ”Oh, I think Scaredy can be brave a little longer. come back at night and calm him down”). It is hard to find Scaredy as he is well hidden. In order to find Scaredy you need to have the night mode activated you may get this message from him “Come find me after dark”.
You need to see closely in order to see him, you may find him behind bushes, mushrooms, or huts. It is hard to distinguish between him an the other smurfs because he looks similar, apart form he has yellow exclamation mark over his head and walks slowly. One trick that helps you to find him easily, if you switch to Tailor smurf mode (in case you bought tailor smurf) you can see him easily as he has an exclamation mark over his head.
Once you get him you can get the 400 XP bonus after tapping him every night.
