Playing as the young apprentice Justforkix, Asterix himself gives you a map of the village -- and hopefully the ability to move about freely. Several new characters are shown, including Chief Vitalstatistix and the blacksmith, Fulliautomatix. Cheeky humor is commonplace in Asterix lore, so anything less than hilarious will seem like a disappointment. The gameplay interface could be similar to the superb Professor Layton, and there's certainly no shame coming close. Give us complex, intelligent puzzles to complement all things Asterix and this might be enjoyable after all.
