For a long time I've never seen a member here who has a copy of the official Smurfs game on CD-i. For a long time we even thought it was only a prototype CD-i (we only have a french and dutch prototype). Out of the blue a french version appeared on eBay a few years ago, which gave me the possibility to snap some nice pictures. But it showed the french version was actually released in 1998. However, the dutch version remains to be prototype exclusive, as far as we know. And what's even better, it's a very nice game, it's a mix of platforming and minigames. But you have to understand the dutch or french language to understand. (So Devin doesn't get the point Laughing ). Shroo-man recently got his hands on a copy: "the release date on mine says 1995 not 1998. How strange are those product numbers: "SCHTRFR4021", "SCHTRFR4041" and "SCHTRFR4011"! a different one for each of the manual, disc and back cover. I played it, it's very nice. if you choose the plaform mode I think up to 4 different people can play but not at the same time. you have to choose minigames and the first player to finish 10 wins. I haven't completed it yet though some mini games need an understanding of French.
Screenshots to follow! Thanks to Shroo-man for the pictures!
