The Real Reason Why Smurfs Are Blue…

Smurfs… what do they have to do with gaming? I dunno, could it be because there’s been a Smurf game on the Atari 2600, ColecoVision, Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Master System, Gameboy Color, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis/MegaDrive, Playstation and PC. Hmm…

Of the vast library of titles, my favorite installment of a Smurf game still has to be the first one… Smurf: Rescue in Gargamel’s Castle and my platform of choice for this title is the ColecoVision. This platformer title predates the most famous platformer of all time, Super Mario Bros., by three years… not bad for 1982.

Also, there was a naughty easter egg in this game that predated the Hot Coffee mod by twenty-two year. If you leave the last screen with the skull and Smurfette in the game, Smurfette will drop her dress and close her eyes. Oh, Peyo. What ever will we do with you?
