Asterix and the Magic Cauldron is a graphical adventure game, where 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. The game takes place on 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.
