Asterix and the Great Rescue (SEGA GENESIS) Platform 1993

 

Asterix and the Great Rescue is a Sega video game that was published in 1993 for the Genesis/Mega Drive and in 1994 for the Game Gear and Master System.

Plot:

This game is based on Asterix the Gaul, a long-running French comic book franchise. Asterix and Obelix must save Getafix (Panoramix) and Dogmatix (Idéfix) from the Romans who are about to take over Gaul.

Gameplay:

It is a platform game with a side-scrolling view. The launch screen allows you to select the difficulty level as well as turn off the music and/or sound effects. The Master System and Game Gear versions enable you to change characters throughout a level, however the Mega Drive/Genesis version does not, instead enabling you to choose characters at the start of a level.

Reception:

GamePro panned the Genesis version's steep difficulty slope and weak controls, stating that "It's all too easy to confuse the button for changing special weapons with the button for deploying special weapons. Worse, the difficult-to-control leaps become... a source of frustration when you need to jump accurately but can't." [original emphasis] Nonetheless, they recommended the game to those who enjoy challenging puzzles.

Mean Machines gave the Master System version a favorable review, calling it "very enjoyable" and "compulsive." The aesthetics were lauded, as was the characters' likeness to the original comic incarnations. The game was deemed to be "a terrific game" despite its lack of uniqueness due to its similarity to prior titles starring Disney characters.

The Game Gear version received a 5 out of 10 rating from Electronic Gaming Monthly's four reviewers, who said that the visuals are beautifully done, the noises are "a annoyance," and the controls make the game incredibly frustrating. Similarly, GamePro stated that the visuals and animation of the Game Gear version are superb, but controlling the character is exceedingly tough.
