You will then realize in order to customize the huts, you need raw materials like wood, stones and dye. Wood can be harvested from Timber Smurf every 12 hours, while stones can be collected from Miner Smurf once a day. Sadly for dye, you can only acquire them either through gifts from Jokey, friends or sending smurfs on a dye expedition on the island. Once again, if you can’t wait, you can use smurfberries to purchase these raw materials.

As part of the Valentine’s Day update there’s a series of special quests players will receive from Papa Smurf. One of the trickiest of these missions is the Flower Box task. Players are asked to plant 20 boxes of flowers, harvesting 20 flower boxes of Daisies, Chrysanthemums, or Roses. Although the wording of this quest can be confusing it’s possible to accomplish this mission within minutes. The flowers do not have to be fully harvested to count toward the total. It’s only requesting users to plant 20 flower boxes.
An easy way to successfully complete this quest is to plant, delete, and then re-plant each flower box until the quantity of 20 has been reached. If you don’t have any flower boxes due to a shortage of smurfs, simply delete a crop field for each box you wish to buy. There’s no set number of flower boxes required since the method involves reusing each planter. A minimum of one to five flower boxes is enough but having more will make the process go quicker. Any of the mentioned varieties or a combination can be planted. The most inexpensive of the three are the Daisies. Planting this seed instead of the other choices will save a player up to 20 gold coins.
Click on each individual box to plant the seeds. Wait a second or two and then click on the same flower box. A side menu should pop up displaying the seed type and the amount of time left before it can be harvested. On the left side of the menu should be a small red line within a circle. Clicking on it will prompt a message asking if you’d like to delete the flower. Tap yes to clear the flower box and repeat the process planting until the mission is complete. Before you know it those flowers and 250 XP are yours for the picking.
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.
During level 23 Papa smurf will give you the first riddle as following: “I may seem tough, I may seem dry, but beneath the surface I make you cry. What am I?”

Papa Smurf’s hut offers a potion mini-game, the goal of it is to help Papa mix a potion by shaking the device (and therefore the potion) or swiping across the sreen with your finger until it has the correct colour and is done.
