The game is based on the popular French comics series Asterix. It is 50 B.C., and the entire Gaul (today's France) is conquered by the Romans. Only one village still remains independent, thanks to the incredible powers of its two great warriors, Asterix and Obelix. In Asterix and the Great Rescue, they must first of all liberate the village Orvio and rescue their friend Dogmatix.
In Asterix and the Great Rescue, you can play as either Asterix or Obelix. You make your way through platform levels, fighting enemies by punching them, and jumping to access higher ares or to avoid falling down. There are also some items you can collect, such as bombs, with which you can overcome obstacles and advance in the game.
In Asterix and the Great Rescue you'll be able to ride a carpet controlling it like one of those side scrollingn shooter games, there's a boat sequence where you have leap from one boat and board a pirate ship and there's a race to room where you're on a cart and have to fight off Romans and dodge obstacles.
