Asterix and the Power of the Gods (French title: Astérix et le pouvoir des dieux) is a 1995 2D action platformer video game exclusively for the Sega Genesis based on the comic book series Asterix.[2]

Plot[edit]

In Gaul (where modern-day France would be today), the leader of the Gauls - Vercingetorix - was defeated by Julius Caesar and his Roman army. The shield was lost to the invading Romans and Asterix must liberate the shield from their control.

Gameplay[edit]

Players must guide Asterix through different levels. An isometric map is used to enter different levels. Asterix has the ability to run, jump, and defeat enemies by directly hitting them.[2]

Players can talk to non-player characters just like in a role-playing game. Other people's houses can also be visited in search of clues.
