Doctor Smurf’s animal sanctuary has been somewhat neglected by Beeline over the past several updates. In version 1.3.2 the extended area of the game is showed a little TLC. The land is automatically expanded giving users triple the space to build habitats to tend to the forest’s local furry critters. The sanctuary is a great way to accumulate tons of XP if used properly. Players that take advantage of this area should be able to increase their daily experience points with minimal effort.
The animal sanctuary is available for any player that is level 9. Once placed in the main village users can tap on the attached stump to set a treat trap to lure a critter. Peanuts, hazelnuts, carrot cake, and pecan pie are the four core baits that can be used. Peanuts are the only treats that cost coins, the rest of the items require Smurfberries. Read More→
Smurf’s Village has been turned into a winter wonderland with its latest Christmas themed update. Players can go to Handy’s or Architect’s shop to add Christmas customizations to their huts. Instead of using the blueprint process users are able to directly purchase the designs for 2 Smurfberries each. Add red, green, blue, and gold strung lights onto mushroom huts for a beautiful festive display. Players also have other customization options to enhance their huts. Attach a Christmas chimney, window with lights, and special decorated door. Users can play around with different combinations to create unique looking homes that stand out or coordinate with one another. Island huts can be customized with the same options as well. Read More→
The Animal Sanctuary was a great addition to the smurfs village game, which was introduced in in the last update (version 1.2.6). It helps you to attract animals like mice, rabbits, Squirrels as well as increase the XP earned. The Animal Sanctuary is very cheap it costs only 100 gold coins and you can easily get it from the shop. By placing Animal Sanctuary, you can keep different kinds of animals in it.
- Each animal gives you XPs every 8 hrs. As you have more animals, you will get more XPs. Read More→
In Smurfs’ Village once a player reaches level 12 they can purchase Miner Smurf’s mine for 1000 coins. Unlike other smurfs within the game that take leisurely strolls throughout the village, Miner Smurf stays close to his cavern digging and unloading rocks. Like Dreamy Smurf he’s an adventurer but instead of the high seas he prefers exploring underground cave systems and finding the hidden treasures that lie beneath. It takes 24 hours to construct Miner’s Mine but once its established players have several ways to accumulate additional XP.
Flower gardens which unlock at level 14 allow players to earn additional XP while making their village look smurftastic in the process. Each box garden costs 200 coins. Unlike crops flowers only generate XP. Although expensive to plant these botanicals can really assist a player in need of leveling. Once level 20 is reached an estimated 900 experience points is necessary in order to increase your village by 1%. This rate rapidly grows higher as players’ progress making every point count. Roses, daisies, lilies, tulips, and chrysanthemums can reward up to 510 XP per harvest, depending on the plant.
Forming a nice sized flower garden can speed up the growth of your town if utilized in the right way. Friends are essential in building an effective flower garden. Helpful neighbors can tend to your flowers by watering them. If a friend waters a flower box right after it’s been harvested the bed automatically is reseeded. This saves players’ valuable coins as well as time. Choosing a clear spot is one of the best methods to ensure that your friends notice that your flower garden is in need of TLC. Cluttered areas with tons of decorations can make it easy to miss a tiny floating watering can. When neighbors visit they are transported directly to the center of your village. It’s up to them to scroll and search. Always try to put your flower boxes somewhere within eyesight in the middle of the screen, that way visitors won’t be able to miss it. Create a specific zone for your flower garden or place boxes neatly by buildings as long as it’s noticeable.
If you’re planning on eventually buying a Nat Smurfling for an extra XP boost than build a separate garden area away from crops or mushroom homes. Players that have already designed the bulk of their village and have chosen to place their garden on either far side, it’s important to establish a focal point. When visitors scroll across they should be able to easily spot your garden oasis. Place dirt or pebble pathways leading to your garden for friends to follow.
Buddies can also gift seeds when they visit. Gifting seeds to a user that hasn’t unlocked it yet instantly grants them access to that particular flower. It’s a great way to plant higher XP flowers without shelling out Smurfberries for a Nat Smurfling early on in the game. Gardens and helpful friends are very effective when trying to level up in Smurfs’ Village. The following is a list of available seeds, the required level, cost, XP reward, and growth duration:
|Red Roses||Level 14||60 coins||510||24 hours|
|Blue Roses||Level 16||60 coins||410||18 hours|
|Pink Roses||Level 18||60 coins||310||12 hours|
|White Daisies||Level 14||40 coins||490||24 hours|
|Pink Daisies||Level 16||40 coins||390||18 hours|
|Blue Daisies||Level 18||40 coins||290||12 hours|
|Red Chrysanthemums||Level 14||50 coins||500||24 hours|
|Purple Chrysanthemums||Level 16||50 coins||400||18 hours|

|Pink Tulips||Level 28||100 coins||250||8 hours|
If you want to get the most out of the latest Smurfs’ Village Valentine’s Day update than it’s important to spend your smurfberries wisely. The recent release features several high XP earning items that can instantly speed up the leveling of your village while adding to the overall décor. There’s three essential items that are accessible to most players in the shop. These must-haves, embedded with the mighty power of cupid include the dangling heart shape tree, heart flower patch, and the plump patterned heart mushroom. For every heart flower patch placed users receive 3000 XP. It only costs 5 smurfberries per bush which allows players to buy multiple patches placing them in any design they wish. A magical shrub or tree with dangling hearts produces a whopping 6500 XP each time it’s placed. This Valentine’s Day inspired perennial requires 10 smurfberries but it’s still reasonable. Another gem worth placing is the heart patterned mushroom. Each of these decorative mushrooms yields 500 XP and costs just 1 smurfberry. The low cost of this item allows users to plant rows of them while racking in the points.
In this update Smurfette’s house is instantly upgraded with Valentine banners and hearts. Players can have a lot of fun decorating around Smurfette’s humble abode. Mix some of the traditional décor available in the shop with the signature heart themed items to quickly transform your village into a romantic hideaway. Pink fences, picnic tables, benches, flowers, and plain pastel mushrooms can be arranged around or near dangling heart shrubs or themed flower patches. Bountiful flowers patch combinations in the shop for 200 gold coins are also a great filler to use when decorating. Pink, red, and white bundles match well with these specialty bushes.
When visiting neighbors players will also notice several new gifts. Presents like the heart cookie, cupcake, cake, and four distinct Valentine’s Day cards are available. Although cute, these items are not high in value. Happy Smurfin to You’re So Sweet cards only give their recipients 100 XP. The coveted potted flower and medium blue mushroom still holds their top positions as best goodies to give but players that love themes can enjoy passing out these adorable cards and sweets to their neighbors if they wish. Depending on a player’s berry budget there’s plenty of opportunity to earn extra XP with these special themed décor items and gifts.
If you have added neighbours to your village (either via Facebook or Game Center), you can give a gift to each of them every 24 hours and there is a variety of gifts available, all with different values and benefits. The following list should help you to find the perfect gift for your neighbours. Some gifts give a lot of XP, some Coins and some of them are permanent while others, like cakes or potions, are temporary because the Smurfs eat them.
A gift should always be placed in the village after opening the present box, because only then the XP/Coins are given. Once a gift has been placed it can safely be deleted again, the XP/Coins will not be taken away. (For example if you receive a lot of potted plants, you can just keep (or store) as many as you need and delete the others after placing them).
Another update of the game (version 1.1.3) added a new indicator, so it will be easier to see who of your friends have not gotten a gift within the last 24 hours. In the neighbours map, there is now a little gift/present box sign next to the village banner of the neighbour. If the gift box is there, you are able to give that friend a gift, if it is not there, you already gave that neighbour a gift and will have to wait a while before you can gift again.
WARNING! In version 184.108.40.206 the orange, yellow and green gift potions have disappeared due to a bug in the update, for more information please click here .
Farmer Smurf is again a stationary Smurf, staying in front of his house all the time. He does not come with his own mini-game, but he can help harvest the crops faster when they are done as well as increase their value.
He can be bought for 25 Smurfberries and if his hut is placed close to a garden, he raises the amount of XP and Coins given by crops planted there by 25%. He can do this for up to eight gardens if they are placed close to him or touch his mushroom. To see which gardens are affected, touching Farmer turns them green.
Once Farmer has been touched, a window on the right side appears that has a “Harvest All Crops” button at the end. If this button is pressed, all crops that are ready get harvested instantly and the according number of XPs and Coins is added to the user’s status. This is especially helpful if a village has progressed and hence has a lot of gardens, because it saves time otherwise needed to harvest every single crop individually.
A function that many fans of the game have been asking for was added in version 1.1.2 of the app. It is now possible to upgrade Farmer Smurfs hut so that on top of his “Harvest All” function it is also possible to plant a specific crop on all available fields with one click. Like the “Harvest All” feature this can save you a lot of time if you have many gardens in your village.
To enable this function Farmer’s Hut has to be upgraded for 15 Smurfberries, just tap on his house and then on the “Upgrade” button in the window that pops up on the right side. As soon as the upgrade is completed this function can be used and Farmer’s Hut gets a black weather station on top of his thatched roof as a visualisation of that upgrade.
To use this feature, just tap on the house and click on the “Plant All Crops” button. A sidebar with all the available crops will appear. The numbers shown there (i.e. the price, the number of XP and Coins gained) are accumulated, that means they are the totals for all the crops that will be planted by tapping on them, not just for the one individual crop that is shown in the normal mode.
If this function is used, the chosen crop will be planted on every garden and the number of crops is only limited by the amount of available Smurfs and free gardens.
* Special trick for extra XP from Farmer Smurf ! Read below.
It is possible to arrange the gardens in the village in squares of eight with a hole in the middle that can accommodate Farmers Mushroom (see the image below). That way, if all crops are harvested individually and Farmer is placed in the centre of the eight gardens to be harvested, then moved to the next square of gardens before harvest the crops, he can increase the number of XPs and Coins given for every crop in the village by 25%.
With Beeline’s latest release of the watering can for Farmer Smurf on 27 March 2012, when placed correctly, up to 22 crops can receive the bonus, at a cost of 15 smurfberries.
If Smurfette has a heart above her head, tapping this means that she gives 15 XP for every Smurf who is close to her. This happens every couple of hours. With this patience is a virtue, because there should be as many Smurfs around her as possible. A good trick for that is to tap on the Smurfs at a specific area, once tapped they start waving with their hand and don’t move anymore. That way a lot of Smurfs can be gathered in that area and as soon as Smurfette comes nearby they will all give the extra XP. Another trick is to wait until a harvest is done, then all Smurfs stop working and start walking around, usually all at once, so it is easier to gather them in one place.
Smurfette will only give the bonus XP to the working Smurfs, the special Smurfs like Papa, Brainy, etc. are not affected, even if they are in her proximity.
If you don’t buy Smurfette, she will visit your village in some seasonal updates, i.e Christmas and Valentine updates. She will eventually give you some quests and riddles.
