The Smurfs' Nightmare is the third installment of the Smurfs series about little blue dwarfs and their arch-nemesis, evil wizard Gargamel.

This time evil Gargamel casts an evil spell on the Smurf village. All the sleeping Smurfs are trapped inside horrible nightmares. And you, brave Smurf, should go into their houses and rescue them. To enter the house you should have a key for it. Each house represents a different environment as well as different monsters and goals.

The gameplay is flown in 3rd-person side-scrolling view, where you should move, jump on the opponents to eliminate them, use different mechanisms to reach certain places, and collect the necessary number of magical leaves to finish the level. Different goals should be performed also such as to find the carrot in the Kitchen, etc.

The game was made in French, German, English, and Spanish.

The Smurfs' Nightmare was one of the first Game Boy Color games to be hacked and sold as a pirated Pokémon game titled Monster Go! Go! Go!. Gargamel became Meowth (who spouts some bizarre Engrish including lyrics from 'My Heart Will Go On'), and the playable Smurf character became Pikachu. Other Pokémon, such as Bellsprout, make guest appearances as enemies.
