True to Melbourne House's style, Asterix is a beat-'em-up style game. Obelix accidentally shatters the magic cauldron, sending pieces flying. You (as Asterix) and Obelix must find all the pieces and bring them back to the village. While searching, you will encounter Romans and wild boar, which must be fought off.
All is visible.
P. Nice to see Asterix on the computer screen.
P. Large colourful sprites resembling those unconquerable cartoon Gauls.
N. Fighting scenes are a joke; they jump up and down like the highland fling.
N. Awful flickering at the best of times. Occasionally half a character will disappear and not return for a loooonng time.
N. Collision detection is virtually non-existent.
