Asterix & Obelix XXL was developed by Étranges Libellules on the GameCube platform on June 18, 2004 in the European. This game is based on the famous French comic series, Asterix. Similar to the manga, the game’s content takes place around a land Gaul and the fight against the Roman Empire’s invasion.
One day, Dogmatix and two main characters (Asterix and Obelix) left the village to hunt boar. While moving in the nearby forest, a storm and glance struck a tree near Dogmatix’s location. Therefore, Dogmatix felt scared and ran away, Asterix and Obelix decided to search for Dogmatix to return to the village. While finding, Asterix saw a firelight in the forest and went to check it out, Obelix would continue his quest to find Dogmatix. Approaching the fire, Asterix met a Roman army’s spy. However, this person was fired and felt despised. Therefore, he offered to help Obelix and Asterix in breaking the Romans.
Returning to the village, Asterix witnessed his village which was burned and controlled by many Roman soldiers. From there, he defeated all the enemies in the village and encountered Obelix at a hilltop near the sea (Dogmatix has not been found yet). In the end, Obelix and Asterix received notice that their villagers had been kidnapped by Roman soldiers and were being held in barges at sea (from the lost spy who lost their jobs). Obtaining information, Obelix and Asterix set out to rescue them.
Basically, with the mission of rescuing villagers, players will have to go through many different stages. Each will allow players to control a character (Obelix or Asterix) to perform the task. Besides, the two main characters also have their strengths and weaknesses to explore. For example, Asterix can move quickly, and he needs magic potion to destroy some obstacles. Obelix has a normal movement speed and can easily destroy obstacles without the use of magic drugs.
To rescue the villagers, players will have to face many challenges that are on the way (Roman soldiers, traps …). Therefore, players have to move skillfully to eliminate enemies and overcome the pitfalls. In addition to fighting the Roman army, the player also has to collect yellow Lovorov vijenac bracelets. You can collect it from solving puzzles or completing special challenges. Gathering the Lovorov vijenac will allow you to unlock unique support items to use.
