Cult Video Game Essentials: Asterix and the Magic Cauldron

Released in 1986, Asterix and the Magic Cauldron was a graphical adventure game that was released for the Amstrad PC, Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum home computers. It was based on the popular Asterix comic books created by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo.

In the game the player takes the role of Asterix, who has to find all the pieces of the missing cauldron, so that Getafix the druid can brew magic potion and the Gaulish village can stand against the Romans. Asterix moves through a number of several interconnected “rooms”, each of which take up one screen. The game starts at the Gaulish village, and Asterix can also travel out to the forest, and to Roman camps. When Asterix meets a wild boar or a Roman legionary, a separate fight scene ensues. Defeated wild boar can be eaten to provide extra sustenance.
