  • In Smurfs' Village players are able to interact with their favorite characters from the series and build a new village for the Smurfs to call home. Beginning with only a single mushroom house and a lone plowed plot of land, players can build a thriving community of Smurfs complete with specialized houses, elaborate gardens and colorful crops. Players can also explore several different mini games including Papa Smurf's Potion Mixing game and Painter Smurf's coloring game.

  • In Zombie Café players partner with an evil corporation to use zombies as free labor to build their café empire, prepare food and serve guests. If the competition gets too fierce players can use their zombie workers to raid neighboring cafés for plunder and recipes.
