Asterix the Gaul's a well-known cartoon character in France. On the order of his leader, Vitalstatistix, Asterix has to free his buddy, the warrior Obelix, who's being held in Rome.
This game features very easy action/adventure-style play. Asterix walks, flies, swims, drives a wagon, and jumps through the five Acts (each with different scenes).10
ProTip: Look for Laurels -- they're 1-ups.
Although the game's main character is cute, the graphics are very simple by current 16- bit standards, and the music is cutesy and annoying.
Look to the right to avoid nasty falls.
There just isn't enough to the game play to enable Asterix to stand sandal to sandal against some of the great action/adventure fare currently available. Asterix may capture Rome, but he's not gonna take the video game world by storm.
