Imagine the worst scenario ever. Gargamel found the mushroom Smurfs' village and our little blue friends had to leave in a hurry. Luckily, Papa Smurf is wise enough to organize the smurfs and raise a brave new village. In short, Smurf Village is a management game with a simple plot and -here's the best part- a handful of minigames scattered here and there.
Smurfs deserve the best village you can create. To do so, you can control well known characters and resolve some quests. In addition, the village has to be managed wisely to avoid surpluses or shortages. You can publicize your achievements via Facebook and play offline while you haven't a wifi near or just to save your data connection.
Graphics, sound and gameplay are, indeed, optimal. There are only two flaws. First, it's hard to understand why it asks for too many permissions; second, the in-app purchase works with real money, conveniently exchanged for smurfberries, the in-game currency. Of course, all in-app purchases of all games work with real money, but the smurfish nature of this game makes it easy to be misunderstood when played by kids. However, smurfberries are spent to haste your progress and game can be played at a slower pace without having to put on the table true smurfdollars. Great, great game, recommendable even if you aren't still keen on management games and want to start by something...smurfer.
