Smurfs' Village Wiki

Since Smurfs' Village was first developed, a wide range of new mobile devices have entered the market. Keeping the game optimized for each of those devices takes a great deal of time and resources. Over time certain devices have stopped being supported, while others have become less compatible with the game. Unfortunately, sometimes the developers may not be able to correct issues that arise with those older devices.[1]

Should a player experience any version issue on their device, they are encouraged to submit a ticket to Smurfs' Village customer support, or make a post here in the New or ongoing problems section in the Community Forums.

Amazon Fire

Amazon Kindle Fire devices run a forked version of Google's Android OS called Fire OS. When the minimum OS requirement for Android devices was changed to Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) or later, the minimum OS requirement for Fire devices was also changed to Fire OS 3 (Mojito) or later. The following list of devices are not currently supported.

Kindle Fire

  • Fire 1st Gen 7 inch (2011)
  • Fire 2nd Gen 7 inch (2012)

Kindle Fire HD

Android

With Apple iOS devices and Amazon Kindle Fire OS devices, there are a set number of hardware configurations for which Smurfs' Village is either compatible, or not compatible. On devices running Google's Android OS, it's a different story entirely.

At this point in time there are tens of thousands of different devices being put out by a large number of different companies around the world. These Android devices have a wide range of screen sizes, processors, memory, storage, and many are released with outdated versions of the Android OS. To make matters worse, brand new Android devices purchased recently are not even guaranteed that they will receive new Android updates for a variety of reasons. This is called Fragmentation], which may prove to be a source of major frustration for Android users.

When the minimum OS requirement for Android devices was changed to Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) or later, all devices running earlier versions of Android can no longer officially download the newest game updates from the Google Play Store.

The following list of Apple iOS devices are still supported. Please note however that due to their age and hardware limitations, players may encounter issues that detract from the overall gameplay.

Android

Developers strive to make their games compatible with as many Android devices as possible. Despite these efforts, some Android hardware may experience issues that are confined only to those certain devices or from certain manufacturers.

The best advice is to make sure your Android device is running at the very minimum, Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). One needs to research their device and check to see where it falls on the low to high end hardware scale. While it is still possible to install Smurfs' Village on devices with 512 GB of RAM, their performance will be severely hindered by the lack of RAM, resulting in a less enjoyable experience.

The following list of Android devices are currently supported but may have some compatibility issues.

Phones

  • Samsung Galaxy S3 1 GB RAM International (2012)

Tablets

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2015)
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7 (2015)
  • Nexus 7 1st Gen (2012)
  • Nexus 7 2nd Gen (2013)
