Want to be the fastest Smurf in the village?
Choose your favorite Smurf among the 12 playable options and master their unique Super Power. Everyone will know who the fastest Smurf is!
In Smurfs Karts, getting the best start, taking shortcuts or using bonuses will help players rise in the rankings, but players will also have to rely on the Super Powers of their chosen Smurf to take the lead. Used at the right time, the Smurf’s Super Power will give the player a tremendous advantage, and the opportunity to change the course of the race and take players to the top of the podium.
The Super Powers can be found in the “surprise gifts” scattered all over the race. They are rare and will bring the player back in to top rankings in the race… some of the time! Use them wisely to make the difference!

Each Smurf has a unique Super Power:

  • Papa Smurf: Sends magic powder to put everyone to sleep instantly.
  • Jokey: Sends explosive gifts to his opponents to make them lose time.
  • Storm: Fires sticky arrows on opponents to change their trajectory.
  • Handy: Brings out an army of homemade drones to protect him and stuns opponents.
  • Clumsy: Turns on the flashing light of his fire engine kart to overtake its competitors.
  • Chef: Offers cakes to opponents to give them the hiccups.
  • Smurfette: Bewitches the other Smurfs with her perfume.
  • Blossom: Makes her opponents execute frantic jumps, preventing them from advancing.
  • Robot: Activates his robotic arms and causes a tornado effect.
  • Astro: Activates the reactors of its rocket-kart that allows him to overtake his opponents.
  • Hefty: Shows off workout effect to push the others along the track.
  • Farmer: Harvests sarsaparilla for a boost.
Alone or with others, new beginner or experienced pilot... Everyone can Smurf the first place, and drive wild races with family or friends!
