REVIEW:
While I'm really happy the classic Smurfs have a noticeable presence in the mobile gaming world with Smurfs Epic Run and Smurfs Village, I didn't really connect with Smurfette's Magic Match. I enjoy and have played some of the popular 3-match games but the graphics unfortunately don't "match" the big boys. The special potion moves were a little confusing at first even though I managed to get through the long tutorial. And being the typical male, buying new outfits for Smurfette is not really my thing.

Bottom line is as much as I like seeing the classic characters this really didn't hold my interest. If you are into popular online and mobile games like the Major Millions slot game, endless runners, or the latest bird-throwing sequel, Smurfette's Magic Match is probably not for you. If you a female and an '80s kid who remembers watching the Smurfs on Saturday Morning, then give it a try. The game does hold an above 4-star rating in Google Play and iTunes.

Smurfette's Magic Match is free to play, but charges real money for additional in-app content. You will be able to lock out the ability to purchase in-app content by adjusting your device’s settings. Download now for free in the iTunesGoogle Play, and Amazon app stores.
