Sydney, Australia August 27th 2021 – Microids and IMPS are delighted to introduce more details on the ultimate tool the Smurfs will use to fight back against the Vileaf corrupting their forest! This devilish and very toxic plant created by Gargamel endangers both the flora and our little blue friends! Indeed, the “viletrap” seeds secreted by the Vileaf lure the Smurfs and keep them captive in organic cages…
Despite this dreadful situation, all hopes are not lost! Handy Smurf has THE ideal tool to save the day and you’ll find all the details is this new trailer!
This impressive tool is the incredible Smurfizer, a revolutionary invention including great features like:
- A body made of wood and metal: These materials are well known for their sturdiness! Perfect for a great adventure!
- A stable shoulder strap: Super convenient to carry the Smurfizer easily with a complete freedom of movement.
- An ergonomic handle: For a fantastic grip and a precision like no other!
- And last but not least, a pollen pump: Great for vaporizing pollen over a long distance!
The Smurfizer will allow you to rush, glide, smash, vacuum and shoot out projectiles, but most importantly, vaporize a powerful antidote developed by Papa Smurf to heal the plants infected by the vileaf and fight various enemies. Once you’ve tried the Smurfizer, you’ll asked yourself how you could ever live without it!
