Codex Gamicus

Astérix is an arcade game released in 1992. It was mostly released in Europe due to the popularity of the Astérix character in that area.


Take the role of either Astérix or Obelix in a number of bold (and funny) adventures around Europe and beyond. There are lots of funny moves (known from the comics) that can be performed by special joystick and button combinations as explained in the "attract" mode of the game.

Drinking the magic potion (Astérix) or eating a roast (Obelix) will make them briefly invincible and allow them to plough through Romans, causing them to drop their helmets before running away.
