Update 1.4.0 is now live

By

smurf life updates archive After just over a week of review by Apple, Beeline released the newest update to Smurf Life today.  Version 1.4.0 was released at approximately 3:00 pm ET today.  Our smurfy fans were quick to discover the release and to download the newest update.  Within minutes we had posts on our Facebook wall with people’s feedback and asking questions.

In this post, we will go through what has (and has not been) updated in this latest release, and share our first impressions of the update.

The first think I noticed when loading the game was that the loading screen had changed. Now, while I am waiting for my game to load, I get to see a picture of my smurf.  Doesn’t she look pretty with her pink dress and purple wings?

As with the other updates, the first thing I noticed when my village loaded was that I had some messages waiting for me in my mailbox.

The first one is from Papa Smurf, and he tells us about the new updates to the game. You can click on the image below to see the full message, but basically he is telling me that Alchemist and Painter are working together to let me create paints, that Vanity is posing as the authority on home decor and will send me mail telling me how to improve my decor, that I can take pictures of my hut to share with the world, and that I can even visit my friend’s huts. And he let me know that Jokey has finally rejoined the village and has a game I can play once a day to earn prizes.

Sure enough, as soon as I finish Papa Smurf’s letter, I see that Vanity sent me one of his own. He let me know he will rate my hut every day and give me tips. And that my current score was a 6.

Making Paint
One of the ways I can get a higher score is to paint some of the things inside my hut. But in order to do that, I need to learn how to make paint. Papa Smurf told one of the other smurfs that he wants to paint the town red, so Alchemist has been asked to help. And, of course, that means that I get a new quest.  Alchemist gives me a recipe for Red Paint and my quest has begun.

smurf life updates archive

One word of caution…follow the steps of the quest. When I saw I needed Oil,  I went to Brainy, since he is closer.  But Alchemist wants me to get my oil from Painter.  One you have completed the first recipe, it wont matter who you get your oil from, but for this particular quest, wait until Alchemist tells you to go see Painter and get your oil from him

After completing the quest we find out that “paint the town red” was just an expression, but at least now I know how to make paint.  If you want to make more paint, you need to visit Painter and purchase the recipe for the color you want.  Some recipes cost golden tokens while some cost moondust.  It is possible that these prices will change daily, as do a lot of the other items (such as clothing from Tailor), so keep an eye on it to see if you can get your paint color recipe on sale.

The other colors available, and the resource you will need to create them, are as follows:

  • Green – Mint
  • Blue – Flax  (requires Moondust to purchase recipe)
  • Orange – Milkweed
  • Yellow -Dandelion (requires Moondust to purchase recipe)
  • Purple – Lavender
  • Pink – Sugar  (requires Moondust to purchase recipe)
  • Brown – Coffee grounds
  • Grey – Aluminum Power
  • Black – Ink  (requires Moondust to purchase recipe)

Jokey
After playing around with paint for a little while, I decided it was time to have some fun and to find Jokey.  His hut is located beside Tailor Smuf, next to the party area. The roof on his hut is the same colour as his signature gift boxes.

smurf life updates archive

When you tap the exclamation mark, Jokey provides you with the option to play a game. This game is available to play once a day and you can win a lot of different prizes.

smurf life updates archive

Clicking on the gift game brings up a series of screens that explain the game to you, and walk you through it.  We will add a post just for Jokey, and add more details about the game in that post. But basically you have a grid of gift boxes and you get to choose a certain number each day. You start with 3 boxes to open, but for every day you come back and play, one more is added, up to a maximum of 10 per day

smurf life updates archive

The goal is to get three Golden Tickets to win the top prize. The top prize will be shown in the box that says Top Prize. In the image above, it is covered with details on how to play the game.  I won a total of 15 energy when I played, but my energy was maxed at the time, so I didn’t really win anything.  Trying it on another device, I won 10 coins, a hinge and one golden ticket. I got to keep the coins and the hinge, but I didn’t get to keep the golden ticket.

Friends
The final addition to this update, and perhaps the one people have been waiting for the longest is the ability to add Friends to your game.

smurf life updates archive

When you click on the Friend icon in the bottom right hand side of the screen, you will be brought to your friends list. The first time you click the icon, you will be taken out to Facebook and asked to allow the game certain permissions on your account.  At this point, it appears that you can only link to your friends via Facebook.  Game Center support does not seem to be part of this release.

smurf life updates archive

It looks like I am the first of my Facebook friends to update, so my only option at this point is to visit a random hut, which I did, just for the fun of it.  Now I just need my Facebook friends to upgrade so I can test out the different interactions.  More to come on that later.

What is not included
While there is a lot that HAS been added in this release, there are some things that players were hoping for that have not been added.

Doctor and Handy are still waiting to open their respective workshops.  Talking to them will give you the same message you received after you freed them in version 1.3.0. They will both tell you that they are not quite ready, and to check back later

No new levels/quests have been added to the Alchemy and Building professions.  Many players have maxed out at level 16 and were hoping to be able to increase their professional levels with this update.  Unfortunately, no new levels have been added at this time.  Any stars that you happen to earn before the next update will keep accumulating, and once the new levels are added, you should be able to increase your levels fairly quickly with your banked stars, but that till not be happening for this release.

Your Feedback
What do you think of the new update? Have you visited your friends? Have they been able to visit you? What have you painted?  We want to hear what you think about the update.  Please let us know in the comment below.

    They haven’t fixed the resource issue either. Still only 1 silver every 12 hours and 1 diamond every 24. Disappointing.

    • Reena_Smurf

      Beeline has said that the balancing of resources will be in the next update. Unfortunately we do not have and update on when that will be.

      • http://www.facebook.com/bisies Tan Bi Si

        I got a diamond from Okeys game, should I sell it or not

        • http://www.facebook.com/rdlove.rd.9 Rdv Vohr

          tan bi si dont sell it u will need it on future :)

          lucky the diamond costs 30 energy

          • http://www.facebook.com/bisies Tan Bi Si

            How but ruby, I got that for today

          • NimaSh

            you will need Ruby as well, keep it :)

          • http://www.facebook.com/bisies Tan Bi Si

            Then another one. I got emerald from jokey and then is that used for rune making tq

  • Kid smurf

    I have trouble moving. It’s very slow am jerky. Very frustrating.

    • Carolina

      I have the same problem :(

    • Beth Jackson

      Me too. I rebooted and made some space on my phone by removing all my music and it’s still jerky.

  • Lee_Smurf

    No silver! Ugh. It’s all I wanted!

  • http://www.facebook.com/Tumtummie Sonja Boluijt

    I made the paint recipe, but how to use it? I have three paints already and they are filling my inventory ;-(

    • Crafty Smurf

      I used my paint to change the color of a few items in my hut. When you click on a paintable item, a paint pallet now appears at the bottom of the options. Click on it and you will see the paints you have available. Then click on a paint color and see how the item would look in the new color. You can opt to cancel at that point or confirm that you want to change the color.

    • Reena_Smurf

      You can use them to paint some of the objects in your hut, to help you get extra points when Vanity reviews your hut each day. Or, you can sell them at the trade table. So far it seems like you can get 28 coins, so you will gain back the coins you spent on the oil, and earn 3 extra coins each time you sell them

  • http://www.facebook.com/rdlove.rd.9 Rdv Vohr

    sonja u can use the paints on ur hut

    example if u put a chair or hut u can costumize and change color ..

  • Lisa

    The game wont play after the update, it always crash from the start. Any solution?

    • Reena_Smurf

      Hi Lisa

      Have you rebooted your device since the update by holding down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears, then let go? If that does not help, you will have to contact Beeline support directly through their support page. http://beeline-i.com/support/?page=support

  • Beth Jackson

    I’m concerned at the direction the game is moving in. I don’t care about my smurf’s clothes or the interior design of the hut. I use my hut for storage. I don’t want to network with my friends or visit their huts. All I want to do is quests.

    • Reena_Smurf

      Beeline has said that the next update will be all about moving the game more in line with the direction they are getting from their players, but I imagine it takes time to do that. This release was meant more to fix some things that they did not like when they introduced the hut (like making the interior square so you have more useable space). They have admitted they know the content is really light in this update, but promised more in update 1.5.0. Although we do not have a release date for that update yet.

  • http://twitter.com/Lexaeus RadSpyro

    All I wanted from this update was more silver. And there is no extra silver.

    Furthermore, all of my favorite colors require a Moondust purchase (aside from purple). Overall, I’m disappointed in this update, I was really hoping they would finally listen to use on the silver issue at the very least,

    • Reena_Smurf

      Beeline has said they will address the balancing of the resources in the next release. Date is still to be determined, but we are asking them for more details.

  • Jack

    Hey am I the only person who can’t play jokeys gift box game cause the whole game crashs down allways???

  • Stupid

    Why there is no way to get trade for moondust without pay real $$$?my moondust always disappeared suddenly,i hit lv 16 for both alchmey and building poession, now i can’t get enough moomdust to solve the expansion quest which need me 30moondust!!stupid games!i wait so long and hope this update can hv something new eg new mission but now is nothing!i will not play smurf any more! my feeling is i am not playing the game but smurf live play a joke with me made me like a fool! i will quit this game and will not play beelin game forever!let quit this gm now !

  • http://twitter.com/Natalie250385 Natalie Herbert

    hi, is anyone else no longer getting their 50 tokens a day from papa smurf since the update?

    • Beth Jackson

      Yeah. That’s dropped off for me too. I’d way rather get 50 tokens each day than stupid hinges, which is all I get from Jokey’s game.

      • http://www.facebook.com/erictomlinson22 Eric Tomlinson

        It’s funny… I am at 16 alchemy/building, tons of tokens, etc… and I get a LOT of hinges. My wife is at the beginning of the game and she is getting a TON of rubies from Jokey. I want the rubies!

        • Beth Jackson

          I’m in the same position as you. To be honest, I don’t need the extra tokens :-) but it’s nice to get some attention from Papa Smurf. Once you get advanced in the game you don’t get to interact with him at all.

          • http://www.facebook.com/erictomlinson22 Eric Tomlinson

            Yeah. I’d much rather see him start giving us a random gift. The same as a box from Jokey. It might be tokens, it might be energy, it might be an ingredient, etc.

            If it’s energy, you could go spend some energy before collecting it, like a little reserve.

        • http://www.facebook.com/esther.santoso Esther Santoso

          i’m stack in level 16 .. cannot up to level 17 .. why ?

          • NimaSh

            the recent version doesn’t have higher lvl than 16, you need to wait for the nes update

    • http://www.facebook.com/lisa.v.mtz Lisa Velo Mtz

      I am not getting my tokens either and would like to get those back.

    • http://www.facebook.com/christyann.smith.5 Christy Ann Smith

      I am not getting coins either.

    • http://www.facebook.com/shamitha.sridharan Shamitha Sridharan

      I am not getting 50 coins any more either

    • Kylie Loftus

      I really miss the tokens

  • pac_80

    Is anyone else having issues connecting to friends? Everytime I try it loads facebook and then crashes. Ive tried rebboting and it still does it

    • http://www.facebook.com/muppets.mum Muppets Mum

      pac_80
      me too, how can we fix this :(

  • Robin

    Another disappointing piece of this update is not getting 50 coins every day from the post office. I do not get this from Jokey either, so if they were thinking that Jokey’s gifts make up for it, it does not.

  • Drago8472

    Completed the gold bracelet for a smurf, had the party and papa smurf said lets see what clouds have moved. But no clouds moved to reveal a new section. This happen to anyone else?

    • Reena_Smurf

      I have had this happen in both the Alchemy and the Building areas. Twice I had a party and no clouds moved. It usually means you have freed all of the smurfs in that professional track.

      • Drago8472

        Thanks Reena, thought as much, needed confirmation. Was hoping it would clear to keep the suspence going. :)

    • http://www.facebook.com/muppets.mum Muppets Mum

      hi drago8472 this has happened to me a few times, and its very fustrating, i hope they fix it very soon,( not a happy smurf :(

    • Dimity Gardner

      Yep has happened to me with timber and alchemist. Very annoying! I have no quests to do apart from saving smurfette which requires about 40-50 moon dust. Very boring :(

    • arlette

      I had this happen to me twice now :-( I am at level 16 and have 22 smurfs does anyone know if that is as many smurfs as I can get or did I miss some because my clouds didn’t go back? :-(

      • Beth Jackson

        That’s the max at the moment.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=810969586 Candi Michelle Hall

    I’m at level 18…but that’s the only thing. I have the “tea set” to make but I don’t have the clay jug recipe.

    • Beth Jackson

      I think you mean you have freed 18 smurfs. This happened to me. I leveled up to 16 in the timber yard and then the clay jug became available as a professional quest.

      • Gayane Selimyan

        What is the recipe for clay jug?

        • Beth Jackson

          It is 3 Ceramic Clay, 1 Glaze, and 1 Pottery Wheel.

          • Gayane Selimyan

            Thanks :)

      • http://www.facebook.com/esther.santoso Esther Santoso

        Hi Beth .. i am in level 16 but i can’t grow in star althought i already have star .. and i’m still in level 16 even i have many star ! why ? .. how ?

        • Beth Jackson

          Once you are at level 16 your stars don’t appear to contribute to more levels, but they do. When the next update comes out, all the stars that you have accumulated, but that haven’t been displayed yet, will be factored into you’re next level up. So keep working towards those stars!

  • http://www.facebook.com/muppets.mum Muppets Mum

    i don’t seem to be logged in with facebook, because you go onto the social, and hit the manage button and nothing comes up, can anyone help me with this please x x :(

  • transmutejun3

    I don’t understand pink paint. It needs sugar? Where is sugar?

    • NimaSh

      you can buy it from Alchemist Smurf

  • Smurfu

    I assume it does, but as of the latest update, Vanity no longer tells you what items you can make or buy – So is the fireplace an item I can display? The Tiki Torches can’t be displayed, so I’m just checking.

    • Crafty Smurf

      Yes, you can build a fireplace for your hut. I painted mine red.

  • Dionne

    I’m also not receiving the daily 50 trade tokens from papa smurf anymore. Too bad they did not add extra quests and resources (specially silver and diamond). But I would like to get an extra four leaf clover patch as well….

    • Beth Jackson

      I haven’t had trouble with the silver, but the clover patch… yeah, could really do with another one of those.

    • NimaSh

      yes there is no 50 free tokens anymore, as far as Beeline mentioned they are doing some changes which might cause some changes to the Silver Chunk and Clover Patch and maybe Gold

  • Grace

    Do you have to be level 16 in order to receive the paint receipt? Because I’m at level 11 and I don’t have it.

    • Dimity Gardner

      Yes I think so, I got it at level 16.

      • http://www.facebook.com/ae.io.7 Ae Io

        u dont need to be at level 16 to receive the paint recepi i receibe that quest at level 4 or 5 on a new vilage :)

  • Uncharmed&average

    Am I the only one whose storage has filled up with Jokeys gifts and had to stop working? I can’t collect resources unless I sell each of these items for just a few coins?

    • arlette

      I used some of the paint to paint thing in my hut

  • Lenox

    I would like the coins I spend on a task to be given back to me when completed PLUS extra as a reward for doing so. For example the strength potion takes 520 coins to make but when I was done I only got 275! This makes no sense at all! Why would I want to spend all my coins to level up?! Then I can’t buy anything from the village or complete the next task. Please fix this math error in your next update!

    • NimaSh

      you can earn so much tokens from trading table and trading board, honestly with the latest updates tokens is not a big deal anymore … you just need to take a break from your quests and do few extra items and selling them

      • Lenox

        still the math just doesn’t add up! If it takes 520 coins to do the mission then I at least want my 520 coins back! THAT SIMPLE! I should only have to earn extra money if I want to buy other stuff; i.e. clothes or objects for my house. This is a basic that is in EVERY OTHER GAME OUT THERE! Why you guys can’t figure this out beats me!

  • arlette

    I am at level 16 now and have no quests to do. How many smurfs should I have unlocked?

    • Beth Jackson

      I have freed 22 smurfs and have nothing left to do.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kendra.rushlow Kendra Rushlow

    just as I was about to level up to level 16 my ipod kicked me out of the app..i went back in and I have not levelled up!

  • http://twitter.com/cd_BE Carpe Diem

    When wil there be a New update? Game is a bit boring without quest…

  • Kid smurf

    Update? When is something new coming? My house is full. My vanity is score is over 2100 and I am making gold rings mastered and making bank. But feeling like a hamster in a wheel. We need something new!!! Btw was is the highest vanity scores out there?

  • http://www.facebook.com/craigpaulcarrington Craig Paul Carrington

    zzzzzzzzzzz when is an update going to be released, yes I’ve got to earn $50k for both upper and lower level upgrade to my hut, which I’m doing but its getting BORING, need new challenges, new recipes … maybe introduce new plants or the ability to mix recipes together and see what they make …something / anything ….. please!!!!!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/christyann.smith.5 Christy Ann Smith

      At least you are able to play… After the last expansion i got to play for a week. Now it loads and crashes …. Yeah ….. :(

  • Malissa

    Does anyone have any idea when an update may be coming out? Smurf village got one this week… Smurf life needs it even more!

  • Confused Smurf

    I am at level 10 for Alchemist and level 9 for Builder.
    I have a weird problem with the Sleeping Dwarf quest.
    I created the Wakeup potion and gave it to the Alchemist and I created another Wakeup portion so that I would give it to the Sleeping Dwarf and complete the expansion quest as well.
    However, I do not see the Sleeping Dwarf any more. It just disappeared even before I could give him the wakeup potion. I can go across the area to reach Flax plant without issue. Now the problem is, since I never gave the Sleeping dwarf the potion, no new smurf has joined the village and no clouds were cleared. There is a smurf who’s thinks his path is blocked even when the sleeping dwarf is not there anymore.

    Anyone face such an issue?

    • http://www.facebook.com/bisies Tan Bi Si

      Hmmm… Very strange. Btw, that’s Brainy Smurf.

  • http://www.facebook.com/william.velerian William Velerian

    What is the recipe for sugar?

    • Beth Jackson

      You buy sugar from Alchemist Smurf.

  • http://www.facebook.com/michael.d.lauderdale David Lauderdale

    What is the max score for Vanity’s hut ratings? I am at 2051 now, with the basement and second floor unlocked and all expansions.

    • NimaSh

      there is no max you can get as much as you want, but at the moment score is just for self satisfaction, it is not doing anything special :)

  • Crystal

    Do you know when the next update is?

    • NimaSh

      hopefully end of this month

  • Guest

    This is how it looks. Brainy does not agree with me that Sleeping Dwarf is not there anymore. I am stuck and can’t play anymore :(

  • AC

    When is the next update coming?

  • dudetski

    When will this be available in Android platform?

  • Mats J

    Hi, is anyone aware of the bug in Jokey’s gift game?

  • Delon

    Hi everyone, I opened the smurflife app using iEXPLORER and saw some very interesting items! i think we will need alot of bottles for the new item in v1.5! including cough syrup etc etc. try it out yourself!

  • Malissa

    Has anyone else noticed a change in what they get from Jokey’s box game? I used to get some nicer items (emeralds, rubies, diamonds), but now I only seem to get measly amounts of coins (5-10) or paint… Oh, the amount of paint… Some days it’s 4 or 5 paints even… Am I the only one xperiencing this difference?

  • http://www.facebook.com/william.velerian William Velerian

    I cannot get an more coins from papa smurf since I updated to version 1.4.0.
    Now,I have smurf life 1.5.0
