Based on the characters of the popular French Asterix comic series, this platform game released in 1991 has you follow the two indomitable Gauls Asterix and Obelix as they travel to Rome to confront Julius Caesar.

In each level the player must find the key and make their way to the exit, while avoiding dumb looking legionnaires and making use of potions with various fantastical effects. An interesting feature of this game is that the player can choose between the two heroes for each level, and their different control styles mean that most levels can be completed in a variety of different ways.

With strategic character selection, clever use of shortcuts, and carefully-timed potion use, Johnnypoiro sails through each of the 21 levels, all while minimizing the score to shorten the points tally scene at the end of the game.
