Every time I write about a videogame, I see myself as a kid sitting on the floor and playing it with my cousin. With Asterix & Obelix, it’s the same. I don’t actually remember if buying this game was my idea or my dad’s, because he has always been fond of the Asterix and Obelix comics by René Goscinny, illustrated by Albert Uderzo.
Asterix & Obelix is a side-scrolling, action-adventure platforming
game, released in Europe in 1996 for Super Nintendo PAL, PC,
Game Boy and later on the Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance systems. The game offers single and multi-player modes, as well as the choice of Asterix or Obelix as your character.
I recall the many hours my cousin and I played this game. It was
never-ending fun. We only had one controller at that time, so we
had to take turns playing. As we got better and better, we developed another system: Each of us would play one whole level (or “act”, as described in the game).
