Players take control of Papa Smurf, who needs to guide his little blue friends through 8 levels of progression from their beloved mushroom village to an enchanted castle. It’s slightly more difficult than your average cutesy platformer since both time limits and limited lives add an edge to this joyride.

While Papa embarks on his adventure, dangers fill the landscapes while happily hopping around: carnivorous plants, giant wasps, dangerous rock slides blocking passages and even Gargamel waits in ambush. However, not all hazards are equally threatening; scattered throughout multiple levels are five powerful moonstones boosts which provide players with temporary invulnerability as well as few extra lives in key moments.
