“The Smurfs 2″ is scheduled to hit theaters by the end of next month. And in anticipation of the release of the sequel to 2011′s “The Smurfs (which apparently did so well at the box office as to warrant a part two), the iOS builder game Smurfs’ Village has been updated with stuff inspired by the upcoming movie.
Most notable among the new content in Smurfs’ Village is the arrival of the Naughties.
In “The Smurfs 2,” the Naughties are evil Smurf-like beings created by Gargamel to harness the magical essence of the Smurfs. In Smurfs’ Village, the Naughties are part of a mischievously fun new mini-game that you can play by placing them in their hut.

Grab your popcorn and get ready for some smurfy fun!
Note that Smurfs’ Village is a freemium game. In fact, it’s one of the games that threw the hazards of freemium gaming into stark relief, leading Apple to take steps in informing its customers about the finer points of in-app purchasing.
