Miraculix, dem Druiden, ist der magische Trank ausgegangen! Wenn Caesar davon Wind bekommt, bedeutet das mit Sicherheit eine Invasion. Asterix und Obelix machen sich daher auf den Weg, um die für den Trank benötigten Kräuter zu suchen. Dieser Auftrag führt sie durch alle möglichen von Römern heimgesuchten Gegenden - Meere und Flüsse, Wälder und Wüsten, Tempel und Ruinen.

Getafix the Druid is out of magic potion! If Caesar finds out, it´s invasion for sure. Asterix and Obelix set out to find the necessary herbs. A mission through all sorts of Roman-infested terrain - seas and rivers, forests and deserts, temples and ruins.






Extra Lives Loop
Select Asterix on level five. You'll know you're in the right place if you see snow. You'll eventually come across an extra life on the side of the screen. If you grab it, move just to where it is slightly off-screen, move back and it will be back again. Use this trick to gain up to nine lives.


It’s rare for a game to cover a great work of French literature; the likes of Jean-Paul Sartre, Victor Hugo and even the great Alexandre Dumas were all strangely ignored by master system programmers. Luckily for us masers Goscinny and Uderzo were covered in no less than three Master System games and this is the pick of the bunch. The games basic story is that Getafix, the village's druid, needs some magic herbs to cure a cold which is hampering the use of the magic potion that gives the warriors the magical strength to defeat the Romans. So, off go Asterix and Obelix to once again save their village. The game takes the basic platformer genre and adds various other elements to keep gameplay fresh. Other than the standard jumping on things heads to kill them, vaulting from platform to platform and breaking blocks the game adds some brilliant strokes such as continually scrolling level which only ends when you figure out the puzzle, levels containing doors that lead transport you all over the level and an utterly brilliant surfing level. What's more each level gives you the choice to play as either Asterix or Obelix which gives the gameplay a dual challenge. Asterix and the Secret Mission is very good value for money. Not only is it a good game with a very balanced difficulty level and learning curve, thus giving you a reason to come back, but every level gives you the option of playing as either Asterix or Obelix. The difference between this choice and similar choices in other games (think Sonic Chaos) is that this choice makes a very large difference to the gameplay, some of the levels are entirely different and even the ones that aren't ensure that you use the characters strengths to finish the level, for example in one level you can either use Obelix to swim to your goal or use Asterix to fit through a small gap and get a potion to evaporate the water. All in all I feel Asterix and the Secret Mission is one of the highlights of the Master System's catalogue. The gameplay is genuinely enjoyable and the learning curve is balanced fantastically, so you are gently eased into the game with the game becoming successively more challenging without becoming irritating. Other than the fact I simply see Asterix and the Secret Mission as a good platformer which improves upon the original, the game's biggest success is that it so perfectly captures the humor of the comics without breaking up the gameplay with too much text or speech bubbles that could affect the speed of the game. -
