The Astérix wiki last edited by Mento on 09/24/14 01:37PM View full history

Overview

Astérix is a 2D platformer starring the titular Gaul Astérix as he tries to save his friend Obelix from the Romans. Like the Sega Master System and Arcade versions of Asterix, the game borrows elements and settings from several of the Asterix graphic novels by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo.

It was released exclusively in Europe by Infogrames in 1993, on the Super Nintendo, Game Boy and NES. The NES and Game Boy versions were developed by Bit Managers, a Spanish developer, while publishers Infogrames developed the SNES version in-house. The SNES version is quite a bit longer and has a different arrangement of stages and different music.

It should not be confused with the Atari 2600 game, the Arcade game or the Sega Master System game of the same name.
