Yes, you read that right, the legendary Capcom, purveyors of some of the finest video games known to man or woman such as Resident Evil, has today released a social game for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad called Smurfs Village, featuring The Smurfs! Kind of hard to believe, yes, but Capcom is out to prove that it can do cute and sociable too, and judging by the many favourable reviews and high ratings the game has already garnered in the App Store, theyve done a pretty good job of it too.
The free game is based on the original cartoon and comic art, and sees players developing their village under the tutelage of Papa Smurf, him with the beard. You start off with just one single mushroom house and a lone plowed plot of land and must work hard to build up your tiny domain. Eventually you will be able to really get creative, building specialized houses with elaborate gardens bursting at the seams with colourful crops, and then expanding by building bridges across rivers, trodden paths and much more.
Popular characters from the world of Smurfdom, such as Smurfette and Jokey Smurf will bring their unique skills and perks to your village, and youll also get the chance to play mini-games such as Greedy Smurfs Baking Game, Papa Smurfs Potion Mixing Game and Painter Smurfs Painting Game, and unlock additional bonuses.
The game is free to download and play, but you can buy Smurfberries in-app as downloadable content to speed up the development of your homestead. Capcom says that in future they will be offering continued content updates and enhancements.
So, if the idea of building your own Smurf village grabs you, then click here to download the game for free. There are no Smurf zombies involved, unfortunately.
