The game is based on the popular French comics series Astérix. It is 50 B.C., and the entire Gaul (today's France) is conquered by the Romans. Only one village still remains independent, thanks to the incredible powers of its two great warriors, Asterix and Obelix. In the game, they must first of all liberate the village Orvio and rescue their friend Dogmatix.

The player can play as either Asterix or Obelix. They make their way through platform levels, fighting enemies by punching them, and jumping to access higher ares or to avoid falling down. There are also some items that the player can collect, such as bombs, with which the player can overcome obstacles and advance in the game.

BK2 begins from savestate

Found this clip while playing. Couldn't really recreate it in a couple other places that I thought might've helped. At the very last might save some frames in the level I found it cos you wouldn't have to turn around to get the 2nd cloud. Would love to know more about why this happens, if it can happen elsewhere and even better if it could be used in a speedrun.
