Gargamel has struck again, except this time, he’s caused the Smurfs to scramble in despair from the latest attempt of their enemy to capture them. Fearing the possibility of a trap, the group mustn’t return to their previous village. It’s your job to help them start anew.

On the surface, Capcom’s new Smurfs’ Village seems like the typical social-networking simulation game, however, it goes a bit deeper than that. Become involved with the Smurfs story to reunite their happy and diverse family. As you follow the tale, the game will take you through the controls and Papa Smurf’s demanded quests to help his lost community.

Filled with Retina display quality graphics and sounds inspired by the original cartoon and comic artwork and sound effects, you’ll need to build houses, plant and harvest crops, camouflage your new home, and so much more. As the Smurfs find their way to the new village, you should recognize cherished classic characters like Brainy Smurf, Jokey Smurf, Painter Smurf, Greedy Smurf, Smurfette, and more.

Along with Jokey Smurf’s daily random wacky gifts, you can take a stab at creating useful potions for Papa Smurf, baking treats at Greedy Smurf’s bakery, making some interesting art with Painter Smurf, and other fun bonuses. Bonuses involve the Miner’s Mine, Timber’s Mill, Farmer Smurf, and Smurfette to gain gold, experience points and even Smurfberries.

Mange your village without even being connected to the Internet. If you do choose to be involved in the online excitement as your own community begins to expand and flourish, trade items and gifts with your friend’s villages via Facebook Connect.

Smurfs’ Village is a universal app compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch running iOS 3.0 or later. Start rebuilding the village by getting your free copy from the App Store now.
