Asterix and Obelix is a side-scrolling action game. It starts with Asterix, for instance in the village (Getafix, Geriatrix and Vitalstatistix can be seen) and moves on with the player going in the forest and beating up the Romans. Later, the player gets a message from Britain and must cross the sea. The game takes place in different countries, including Britania, Helvetia, Grecia, Egyptia and Hispania. The aim is to guide Asterix or Obelix through each level until they reach the end. Both playable characters can jump, run and attack enemies, which are mostly Romans.


The game contains the following languages: French, English, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian.


The game is based on the books Asterix in Britain, Asterix in Switzerland, Asterix at the Olympic Games, Asterix and Cleopatra and Asterix in Spain, the fourth mission on the Game Boy Advance version is based on Asterix and the Black Gold instead of Asterix and Cleopatra
