- Solid graphics, every level is unlike another and offers nice variety of colors.
- Most levels are standard go-from-left-to-right experience (something I actually like). This monotony is broken by some other levels (e.g. mines, log jumping, ...)
- No real complaints.
The Bottom Line
Like other Infogrames' platformers, "The Smurfs" is a solid straightforward platformer that neatly brings up nostalgia from a cartoon I used to watch in the 80's. But, in my honest opinion, unlike Asterix & Obelix, this one is a bit easier, i.e. you won't die that often.
You won't have to study endless manuals and game mechanics in this one. After a hard day at work, "The Smurfs" is a game you can just dive into and not rage-quit after you die. This is something only a few other games (like Civilization 1&2) offered me in all these years.
(Beware: Besides Left+Right+Jump keys there is also a "run" key. Pushing it while jumping makes for longer jumps and it also makes the game much easier. Besides, after one point in the game (somewhere in the forest) you won't be able to progress without knowing this key.)
