This game is to good not to have an entry, played this relentlessly as a kid, this game was also my " gatekeeper " to other games because my friends always wanted to swap this for a few weeks. I've not played the great rescue , but I did complete the secret mission and enjoyed it , not as much as this though.
Was well rusty playing through this with Asterix only. Actually was down to my final life but clung on to finish it with a score of 106600. This game has a fun ending unlike many others when you just got some text, that would really bug me back in the day. Will give it a play through with Obelix next and try better this.
Just bashed through this with Obelix and found it equally enjoyable, the levels are completely different, almost like a new game. Again I was down to my final life but held my nerve to finish with an improved score of 114000.
Just started playing this the other week and have to say I was pretty amazed. The graphics and depth of the levels is right up there. I would have loved this as a kid.
yip this is quality 8 bit platforming, no corners cut making this, you almost have two games in one with the difference in levels between asterix and obleix. I finally managed to track down a Great Rescue so I'm looking forward to seeing how it stands up to the other two in the set.

I must admit I'm really enjoying the first one, its got everything a good platformer needs. The graphics and sound are great with excellent gameplay. Ive done about 3 hours on it now in total and I'm on level 5-2 I think. I'll have to get the other 2 next to see how they compare, been a while since I've enjoyed a new game this much.
