This game is based on the long-running, French comic book series Asterix the Gaul. The characters Asterix and Obelix must rescue Getafix (Panoramix) and Dogmatix (Idéfix) from the Romans, who are in the process of taking over Gaul.
It is a side-scrolling platform game, with various levels typical of the genre, including underwater. The startup screen offers a choice of difficulty level, as well as the ability to turn off the music and/or sound effects. The Master System version allows changing characters during a level, whereas the Megadrive port removes this feature in favour of allowing choosing characters at the start of a level.
