Asterix: Mega Madness (known as Asterix: Maximum Gaudium in Germany) is an action adventure video game released on 30 May 2001 for Microsoft Windows and the Playstation. A PlayStation 2 version was planned with better graphics but was cancelled.[citation needed]

It is based on the French comic book series Asterix set in the Ancient Roman times. It is also in the Asterix video game series.


There are four Gauls playable in the game: Obelix, Asterix, Mrs Geriatrix and Cacofonix. In Mega Madness! mode, you start with 'day1' with 3 challenges (Wacky Rowing Race, Crazy Catapult Chase, and Shoot & Score) and then unlock 'day2' with 3 other challenges. 'Day3' and 'day4' both have 4 challenges each. There is a total of 14 challenges available.

In Practice mode, the player can just simply play one of the unlocked challenges (of Mega Madness! mode).

In Team Play, there can be up to 4 players playing together


The game received mainly positive reviews. The strongest part of the game, according to reviewers, was that the game was 'very fun'.
