Capcom Update Smurfs' Village With Easter Theme

By , on April 21, 2011

One of the most controversial and talked about games on the App Store, Smurfs’ Village – eh, Smurfs?! Controversial?! YES! – has taken a leaf out of Angry Birds Seasons's book.

Inspired by our second favourite Christian festival Easter, Capcom have updated their freemium social Smurfing title with all manner of tasty treats.

For those without a Smurfing clue, Smurfs’ Village is a FarmVille-styled micromanagement game in which you rebuild the blue blighters’ home town in return for feeling good about yourself.

That last part is a Smurfing lie.

Anyways, in this Easter-themed update, you can purchase a very helpful Smurfling called Nat, as well as gift your friends a painted egg and let them spend all day hunting around for it.

And for a limited time, the big blue bunny can grace your village, though if he looks anything like Frank from Donnie Darko, I might just give him / her a wide berth.

Please note that while Smurfs’ Village may be free to play, your child may rack up an exorbitant bill via in-app Smurfing purchases if you’re not careful. Hence, the recent controversies.

In other words, don’t reveal your Apple ID password to anyone. Ever. Job done.

Smurf Village is helemaal niet gratis, pas op!
Pas op met het downloaden van de Smurf Village game. Ze nemen je in de maling, er staat dat de app gratis is. NOT. Terwijl je aan het spelen bent, wordt je door onopvalllende apps te grazen genomen, zonder dat je er erg in hebt. Het is mij eergisteren overkomen, kan nu 44,99 euro gaan betalen. Ik heb vanmorgen gegoogled en het is in 2010 bij Kassa op tv geweest dat dit bij een gros van de mensen is overkomen. Ik begrijp niet dat Itunes dit toestaat om zo'n game te verkopen. Echt heel slecht.
