Adventure games that have been done with a more intense graphical appeal have always been great hits in the world of games. Asterix and the Magical Cauldron is another type of graphical adventure, which was based on the very popular French comic book called Asterix.
During this game the player will be taking on the role of the character Asterix. You will be going throughout levels in search of all the pieces that are apart of your missing cauldron. You will need the cauldron so the other character Getafix who is a druid can create a potion that will assist the village of Gaulish in fighting against the Romans.
The game has been designed to go through several different rooms that all have been connected together. Every room will take up a single screen. You will begin your adventure in the village of Gaulish. Once you have left the village you will go to the forest and eventually will get to the Roman camps.
The fight scenes that are emplaced into the game are done with a separate screen compared to the screen you view during your adventures. You will have many encounters with wild boars and even Roman legionaries. When you defeat a boar you will get the chance to actually eat the boar and be provided with extra sustenance to further you along in the game.
The game includes
a lot of adventure and action that can be quite appealing to the gamers. For being released in the year of 1986 the graphical detail could have been done a little more extended. There is a lot of color used, but the actual drawings of the objects seem a little childish. The coloring is more focused on the background instead of your characters; at first I was actually having difficulty determining where my characters were.
Take on this adventure game to save the village before it’s too late. They are counting on you to make sure that nothing happens to their homes. The Romans will put up a fight and try they’re hardest to make sure that this town becomes theirs. Defeat the Romans and become the savior. All you have to do is find all the pieces for your cauldron and get them to Getafix before it’s too late. This potion is mandatory for the village of Gaulish to survive, so become the hero and save the town from damnation, wouldn’t be nice to see your town taken over by Romans.
I love this interesting game and I highly recommend it to everyone! You won’t be disappointed.
