LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 26, 2011) - Beeline Interactive today announced that its hit smartphone game, Smurfs'® Village, will be launching September 28th on the Android Marketplace.
Based on the original cartoon and comic art, players begin the game under the guidance of Papa Smurf, with only a single mushroom house and a lone plowed plot of land. From there, things quickly progress, allowing players to build specialized houses, elaborate gardens with colorful crops, bridges to span running rivers, trodden paths, and more. Fan favorites like Papa Smurf, Smurfette, and Jokey Smurf will bring unique skills and perks to the village and users can play mini games like Greedy Smurf's Baking Game or Papa Smurf's Potion Mixing Game to unlock additional bonuses. Players can also share the experience with their friends by linking their account to Facebook.
"Smurfs' Village" will be available for select devices on the Android Marketplace. The game is free to play, but charges real money for additional in-app content. For more information, visit our press page at www.press.capcom.com or visit www.Beeline-i.com.
