Smeet is a great social experience that offers you a platform to meet and chat with other social orientated gamers with a release in Germany in 2007 before expanding to other regions and multiple languages. While originally launched as a browser based game with the retirement of Adobe Flash Smeet has since transitioned to a Windows and Mac client with a similarly themed mobile version.

The core experience of Smeet is similar to other games in the genre combining features that casual gamers will enjoy with the social aspects of highly social based experiences. Smeet will open up a whole new world to players and encourages you to use it as a place to meet new people. With multiple virtual worlds that have various imaginative elements the worlds that Smeet offers each provide something different.

Central to your Smeet gameplay is the Fame Points concept which serves as an experience and currency system to track your progression. Gaining fame levels which gives you broader access to virtual items to customise your avatar and your virtual 3D hangout area you’ll have a wealth of social content ahead. In addition to customisation you’ll also be able to own a pet (Smeekiez), garden in a virtual farm and play a number of mini games that give you a place to challenge friends and random players that potentially may turn into a new friendship.

The core reason behind the success and growth for Smeet over the past decade lies within its vast accessibility. The original ability to play such a detailed 3D virtual social game in your browser instantly set it apart from competitors that often required a client. While Flash has since changed this advantage for Smeet it’s established community has allowed the game to continue to thrive in the transition to a downloadable client and mobile app experience.

Regardless of how you access the Smeet universe players of Smeet will find themselves splitting their time between chatting and playing mini games which have great variety with almost all games having multiplayer support for co-operative or competitive gameplay. Playing games generates the aforementioned Fame Points which increase the level of your avatar which is used to unlock additional content and boost your social status in the game as you show off what you’ve acquired to other players.

  1. Tried it. Got disgusted and left after finding out that the only way to finish quests was by buying things with real money. And they are really persistent in their requests for money.

    Oh, and they keep spamming me even after I unsubscribed from their mailings.

  2. Warning: Money lecher game with lack of support.
    This game, actually a 2D social chat, used to be good, then they started to rise the prices, to level an account literally costs thousands of euros, the game is boring, all you do is clicking to gather points in order to level or win challenges about who make gathers more points. That’s all. Since its release the game population has dropped to a 20% of what they used to have. The community itself is really poor, always the same users who never chat at all. Support does not care about answering issues, it’s been like this for years, and the game has always something that doesn’t work fine. The game is easy words is dead or soon to be. Regards.
