The Smurfs 2 is a side-scrolling platform game in which you run and jump through 36 levels of Smurfing fun. Each level is filled with enemies, moving platforms and perilous gaps, as well as collectable blue Smurfberries. Smurfberries keep your Smurf alive, and since being hit by an enemy loses you a certain amount of them, it’s crucial you collect them all.
The 12 different enemy types are creatures such as birds and moles that have fallen under Gargamel’s evil spell. To free them you must jump on them. In return they leave a blue potion that, once collected, triggers True Blue mode, which doubles the value of Smurfberries and plays a catchy Smurfs song.
Each level also has three challenges, such as collecting a certain amount of Smurfberries or playing with only one character (the ability to switch Smurfs mid-level is unlocked once you complete the game). In one level you complete a challenge by triggering True Blue mode and not triggering it, so you’re encouraged to play through the game many times to complete them all.
Younger players will love the simple run-and-jump controls and collectible challenges, while families will enjoy teaming up for four-player offline co-op fun. It’s time to take on the Naughties, Azrael and Gargamel!
