The treacherous Gargamel has captured the young Smurfette and is keeping her prisoner on a shelf high above his laboratory floor. To reach his castle laboratory Smurf must run and jump through fields, woods and caves. After this he must climb tall mountains and duck dangers on the forest paths including hawks, snakes, bats and spiders.

Once he reaches the laboratory Smurf must jump on the benches and tables until he is high enough to reach the shelf and free Smurfette.

You play Smurf and start the game outside your house. A number of obstacles are placed in your way and the game constantly gets harder.

Soon after you leave the forest area you will reach the mountains, and this is when you really have to be quick if you want to survive. Each time your Smurf is attacked by an animal or falls over, he grows more tired. Eventually he gets too tired to continue and another Smurf must take his place.

The game is great fun and has a very addictive quality. Pretty graphics and sound effects make this an ideal choice for children.
