Capcom’s mobile division, Beeline Interactive, has announced that their popular iOS hit “Smurf Village” will arrive for Android tomorrow (actually it’s available now here)
Smurf Village was released last November to iOS users and it quickly became one of the most popular games for iPhone. In fact back on the week of November 18, 2010 Smurf Village uprooted Angry Birds on the gaming revenue chart. Smurf Village became so popular that Apple had to put a warning on the Smurf Village page reminding players (and their parents) that while Smurf Village is a free game, it costs “real money” to accelerate the game play. The warning tells parents how to disable in-app billing.
Smurf Village is a game where you create a village for your Smurfs to live in. The graphics are based on the 1980’s Smurf cartoon rather than the 2011 Smurf movie, but it’s great fun all the same. You can create different mushroom houses for each of your Smurfs in a city like simulation very similar also to the Bug Village game by GluMobile.
Smurf Village is free to download and free to play. You can use in-app purchases to move your village building along a little quicker. You start with one mushroom, one plot of land and the wisdom and guidance of the redhatted Papa Smurf. Capcom is reporting that Smurf Village will be available in the Android Market tomorrow (September 28th)
UPDATE: We just checked and it’s in the market now right here
