Just when you thought that dastardly Gargamel was all done with his tricks, he's back and he's angry. Upon the arrival of a brand-new baby in Smurf Village, the evil guy on the hill sends an army of creatures to kidnap the little one and nine other Smurfs. Who's going to save the day? You are! Playing as Hefty, you must traverse the 10 levels of the "It's No Picnic" mode, trying to find and rescue your blue friends. Of course, there will be spikes, falling rocks, Gargamel's servants, bats, bees, and other pitfalls along the way. If you defeat certain foes you'll gain special abilities, and finding hidden passages will transport you to secret levels. If you collect 100 coins or candy canes, you'll even get an extra life to help buy you more time. The game's other mode, called "It's a Piece of Cake," challenges you to make it through six levels, collecting objects to help raise Baby Smurf. Between each level you'll need to check in on the new creation, much like a virtual pet simulation. All of the classic SMURF characters are along for the adventure, guaranteeing you a Smurf-tastic time.
