Asterix: Operation Getafix
Gameplay follows for the most part a typical platform formula: fight the Romans and hunt the wild boars, etc. But as with most Coktel games, Asterix also contains non-action sequences, such as the fun part where you mix the ingredients and test the potion on either Getafix or a captive Roman, and dice game you can play against the soothsayer or Romans in the camp. The money you win from the game is necessary to buy items and potion ingredients.
For all the non-action parts that add variety to the game, the novelty wears out pretty quickly. By the time you meet a twentieth boar or Roman, it all gets very tiring, and you won't feel the urge to find that last ingredient. If you're a fan of the comic, you might find the game enjoyable. For others, it's just another standard platform game with little variation. Infogrames does it much better with Tintin games.
