The year is 50 BC. All Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans. Well... not entirely.
Guide our well-known heroes as they travel all over the Roman Empire, trying to bring a souvenir from every country they cross. A nice game to play for a while, but that's where the story ends.
This is a classic arcade game: it doesn't have a storyline as such. Just move forwards all the time, and, with a bit of luck, you'll succeed. It looks nice: there are lots of details (as many as you can get out of 320x200 pixels) and smoothly animated characters (which is what I liked most).
Asterix & Obelix could be compared to Aladdin as far as the visual impression is concerned. Several soundcards are supported.
It's much more fun to play it in two player mode, with both Asterix and Obelix at the same time, so I recommend you get yourself a second player for this one.
