Asterix & Obelix XXL
FAQ/Walkthrough
Console: NINTENDO GAMECUBE
Version: II
By: Joakim Danielsson aka Ernst Stavro Blofeld
Comments? - I understand Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, English and French

Version I (December 2005): This is the absolutely first version of this 
guide and it might not contain all information yet, but after a couple of 
updates it will be better.

Version II (April 2006): Now I have found the last golden laurel in 
Helvetia and added it in the FAQ. You can find the laurel at the end of 
stage 2 in Helvetia. I have also made a new section called “IX) Golden 
Laurels” and in this section I have assembled all laurels from every level 
to make them easier to find. I have also changed some flaws.

## (II) Introduction (II) ##

Since there is not even one completed FAQ/Walkthrough for Asterix & Obelix 
XXL I decided to create one. This is a great game and I really hope it will 
be released in the USA. What I know isn’t Asterix and Obelix so familiar in 
American homes. 


###########################
## (III) The Story (III) ##
###########################


Caesar and his elite troops have pulled off the impossible! Taking 
advantage of a sudden spring storm and the absence of our two heroes, the 
Romans invaded the indomitable Gaulish village. Everybody is now Ceasar’s 
prisoner! The Romans have also seized a cauldron full of Magic Potion that 
Getafix was busy brewing. While the cauldron is on its way to Rome, the 
Gaulish prisoners have been split up and scattered across the provinces of 
the Roman Empire. 
	Upon their return to the village, Asterix and Obelix quickly 
learn what has happened. Without a moment’s wait, they set off in search of 
their friends.

## (VI) Combos (VI) ##
######################


After you have bashed a lot of Romans in a row, your energy gauge rises and 
when it reaches it top you can use a COMBO. You can only use ONE combo each 
time the energy gauge reaches its top. After that you’ll have to start over 
again. The only way to achieve combos is to pay a visit to Pedlar.


¤ Dogmatix: DOGMATIX UPGRADE
R Button
Dogmatix can be launched quicker and further so that he can disarm more 
Romans before he returns.


¤ Asterix-Obelix: CLUB
Run into the enemy to be seized.
B, B, A, Y Buttons.
Romans can be used as a club to strike the ground (or any other Romans in 
proximity) for the next three times you press the B Button. Striking the 
ground generates a shock wave that disarms any Romans nearby. On the sixth 
impact the Roman is ejected. When Asterix is under the effect of Magic 
Potion, the effects are increased. 


¤ Asterix-Obelix: POWER-HAMMER
Run into the enemy to be seized.
B, Y, A Buttons.
A Roman can be used as a power-hammer, the impact of which causes nearby 
enemies to be disarmed and retreat. A Double Jump wielding a Roman 
generates a more violent impact.

¤ Asterix: MOLE 
B, B, X, Y Buttons.
This combo is designed to eliminate a column of Roman troops in “tortoise” 
formation. After a Double Jump, Asterix spins round and makes a swallow 
dive before burrowing into the ground at high speed. This triggers an 
earthquake that disarms all enemies near the impact zone. Asterix reappears 
shooting out of the ground skywards like a rocket.

¤ Asterix-Obelix: TWISTER
B, A, Y, X Buttons.
Asterix and Obelix are both transformed into tornadoes for several seconds. 
The tornado sucks enemies in by launching electric arcs as it gains speed.

¤ Asterix-Obelix: TWISTER FUSION
Press the A Button when the tornadoes are close together and linked by an 
electric arc. The Twister Fusion is more powerful than the twister… 


#######################
## (VII) Items (VII) ##
#######################


¤ Shields – The shields are your life. You have 3 shields, but can buy more 
from the pedlar. Maximum amounts of shields are 6. Each shield contains 5 
life points.

¤ The Leg o’ boar – Those juicy pieces of meat replenishes your Life 
Points.

¤ Roman Helmets – You don’t need money here; you need Roman Helmets! To 
collect Roman Helmets you simply have to pass over them, but to achieve 
those helmets you’ll have to defeat some Romans, bash some boxes or simply 
find them on your way to Rome. Roman Helmets can be both blue and golden. 
Golden helmets are worth more than ordinary blue ones.

¤ Roman Helmets multiplier - This is a bonus. The number show you how many 
helmets you can multiply, this last several seconds. The numbers can be 3X 
or 10X.

¤ Magic Potion - Only Asterix can collect Magic Potion which make him 
extraordinary strong. Obelix cannot drink the Magic Potion because he drank 
a whole pot of potion when he was young. If Asterix is already under the 
effect of Magic Potion, and he comes into contact with another gourd, an 
enormous shock wave is created that eliminates all Romans in proximity.

¤ Locks – You will sometimes encounter locks. To unlock them you will need 
to defeat the number of Romans indicated.

** (A) Gaul (A) **
******************

2 Stages
5 Golden Laurels – Marked with ***Golden Laurels***

The golden laurels can be used in the “Extra” menu later on in the game 
(check “IX) Golden Laurels” and “X) Extra & Gallery”).


-----------
| STAGE 1 |
-----------

You will see an intro film where you can see that the village is set on 
fire. Follow the path to the man standing just in front of the village. He 
will talk to you and he is upset. Ceasar had used him as a spy, but he 
fired him. The former spy says he will help you and tell you about secrets 
of the Roman Empire. He wants you to collect at least 30 helmets in the 
village before he starts helping you. 

There are 54 helmets in the village, so you shouldn’t have any problems to 
collect 30 of them. Kill all of the Romans to get their helmets and bash 
all boxes you see and go into any house if you can and climb up to the tree 
house. Look at the waterfall too. When you have collected 30 helmets you 
should go and see the former spy again.

He will now open up the path for you and tell you that the villagers have 
been sent away. Push the granite block forward by pushing and holding the A 
button to reach the wall, jump over it.  

When you have jumped off the wall you should start going to the left and 
collect the helmets and the 3X multiplier on the war machine. Then start 
kicking some Romans butt! After all Romans are defeated, bash all boxes 
around you. Bash the wild boars if you need more life points. Pull the 
granite block to open up a new path. 

In the dungeon you will find the spy again and he will now tell you about 
the 51 golden laurels that are hidden throughout the Roman Empire. There 
are 5 laurels in Gaul and the first one is in the cave just in front of 
you. He tells you to try to find all ***Golden Laurels*** and if you do so 
you will be handsomely rewarded.

Bash all boxes you see in the dungeon and then head out to the forest. Bash 
the boxes on the edge first and then continue down to the spy again. This 
time you will learn how important an extinguished torch can be. Pick the 
torch up and light it by place it over the fire and push A. Go to the other 
side of the bridge and light the gun barrel. It will blow up a new path for 
you. Bash all the boxes and collect helmets you see and then continue your 
new path. 

You will now team up with Obelix and it is time to bash some Romans again! 
Take the path to the right and bash all Romans on the beach. When you have 
done that you should swim out and take the helmets in the water around the 
spy, then go talk to him. 

Your Gaulish friends have been sent in boats and one of them were sailing 
northwards but unfortunately he didn’t know where the other one was 
sailing. He also saw a druid in cage captured by Roman soldiers. He now 
tells you to go searching after them, but first search the beach for 
helmets and other good items.

You have a 3X multiplier in one of the boxes on the edge of the left side. 
Grab all helmets on the left side and go towards the right side. Bash all 
boxes and follow the path and you will find a cave. Bash the 4 boxes that 
are inside and you will find a ***Golden Laurel*** hidden behind those 
boxes. Back to the forest now! Go forward and bash the druid and save the 
game if you want to. 

-----------
| STAGE 2 |
-----------

Continue the path and the spy will stand there along with Dogmatix. He will 
teach you how to use Dogmatix in combat. Follow the path and bash the boxes 
and the wild boar if you need more life points. Jump up on the boxes to 
reach some helmets in the sky.

Once again the spy wants to talk to you again. This time he shows you how 
to use the Maximus Repeating Cannon. But before you can use the cannon you 
will have to defeat 70 Romans. Now you see a lot of Romans with their 
shields turn against the sky and against you and they bash their spears 
against you if you try to hit them. Run forward and take the Magic Potion 
bottle and run into the horde of Roman soldiers. Now you can bash them 
without having any fear of their spears. You can defeat the horde without 
the Magic Potion, but it will be much harder. You must wait until they have 
their spears pointing to the sky before you can bash them without taking 
any damage. After around 10 hits they will explode and a massive amounts of 
helmets rain over you. 

There are another Magic Potion on the field too if you need some extra help 
bashing the Romans. After you have defeated all 70 Romans I suggest you to 
go into the smaller building with a large opening and collect the helmets 
that are in there. From the path you first came from you can see some boxes 
to the left. Bash them and you will find three 3X and multiply every helmet 
with 9. Bash some wild boars if needed and then start using the Maximus 
Repeating Cannon. 

There is also a 10X multiplier, but to reach that one you will have to do a 
triple jump and to do a triple jump you must have recently taken a Magic 
Potion. The 10X is to the left from the cannon high in the air. To the 
right of the cannon you have 3 more 3X and along with the 10X you now 
receive 19 helmets per helmet!

Take Asterix through the opening to the right and the spy will talk to you 
again and he say you shouldn’t worry about Obelix because there is another 
way to unlock for him. Here you have an awesome opportunity to get some 
cheap helmets. On the right you can see some boxes; in those boxes are 
multipliers worth 30X! Take them and move as quickly as possible to the 
place where you left Obelix and bash all boxes and grab every helmet there.  

After you have blasted the barricade you could smash some boxes to the left 
and then walk the path up and get the ***Golden Laurel***. Go down again 
and enter the little opening with Asterix to the right from where you first 
entered the building.

Climb the stairs up and bash the little button on the wall in front of you 
to use the elevator to get up. The boxes you see are iron boxes and only 
Obelix can break them. Asterix can break them too if he takes a Magic 
Potion. The spy will also tell you this and that the cannon can break the 
boxes too, but he isn’t sure about that. He also says that Asterix and 
Obelix can switch places by going to a blue lighted circle. Now you can 
control Obelix! The first boxes you see contains golden helmets and 2 10X 
multipliers. Smash every single box you see! 

Out in the fresh air again. Break the boxes and take all helmets and leg o’ 
boars. One strange box will be left, bash it and you will see the pedlar. 
You should at least have collected 3500 helmets by now. Buy the Power 
Hammer Combo. Learn how to use the combo (see section VI) Combos) and go 
bash some Romans! 

Look at both sides of the path for boxes and break them to collect some 
more helmets. While you have reached the river you should follow the river 
to the left side and there you will find a ***Golden Laurel*** and some 
boxes containing both blue and golden helmets.

Continue the path and switch back to Asterix at the end of it in the new 
blue circle. You have found the druid Getafix! He will tell you about how 
the Roman attack of their village happened. He will also tell you about the 
Great Map that Ceasar broke to remain the location of the Gaulish villagers 
a secret and that the villagers managed to get one piece each of the map 
and Getafix will now give you the first one over Normandy where Fulliomatix 
and Unhygienix is captured. 

It took me some time to discover where the 5th ***Golden Laurel*** was, but 
then I remembered that there were some iron boxes in the absolute beginning 
of the game and I went back to this area and when I arrived I played as 
Obelix and when I bashed those iron boxes to the far right I got 5 10X 
multipliers and both golden and blue helmets in the boxes in the middle of 
the path. And to the left you can see a platform in the cliff and if you go 
nearer you will see it is a stair. Go up and break the last boxes to the 
cave entrance and get the last laurel.


**********************
** (B) Normandy (B) **
**********************

6 Stages
11 Golden Laurels

-----------
| STAGE 1 |
-----------

Welcome to a snowy and cold Normandy! The first task for you to solve is 
bash all secret buttons so they can turn from red to green. The first 
button is on the pole in front of you and the second one is on the back of 
the boat, so let’s give them a cold swim! When you have pushed the other 
button the cage whit a ***Golden Laurel*** appears.

Follow the edge on the left side to pick up some golden and blue helmets 
and on the other side some boxes containing blue helmets.

The spy is here! What a surprise! Now he teaches you how to use the manual 
cableway. Just place Asterix on top of it and Obelix underneath and press 
and hold A to move Asterix. Also he told that some prisoners were landed 
there not long ago.

First let’s bash some Romans. This time when the Romans has gathered 
together you cannot wait for them to pull their spears upwards, you’ll have 
to jump over them into the middle and then bash them while they have their 
spears pointed at another direction. They are dead meat now! After you have 
defeated the horde of Romans you just defeat the rest of them.

Now it’s time for you to use the cableway. When Asterix is up you pull the 
lever to open the door on the other side of the camp. Then continue through 
the little cave and bash the 2 red buttons so they become green and then 
stand on the grey spot in front of the “thing” and then you will receive 
helmets like you haven’t seen before!

Climb every tent and house and bash every box you can see to get helmets. 
There is a new shield in a little cave near the top of the first tent from 
where you first came. Jump from the top of the tents to reach a 10X and a 
3X. Break all iron boxes with Obelix while Asterix is on the cableway and 
there you will get even one more 10X which gives you 23 helmets per blue 
helmet and 230 (!) for every golden helmet.

Now move out through the open door and bash the red button behind the wall 
before the hill. Then let Asterix run into the elastic band and release him 
towards the hill in front of you. It might be a little tricky this, but be 
sure to aim right and it will go fine. The secret is actually not to aim at 
all. If you don’t move the joystick he will run up by himself. Bash the 2 
remaining red buttons and stand on the grey spot and you will be rewarded 
with another ***Golden Laurel***.

Outside the cave is our friend the pedlar. If you have collected 17500 
helmets you can buy a new combo but I don’t think you have so just skip 
him. Grab all helmets and bash all boxes around the pedlar and then go 
visit the spy.

He tells you that the huge platform actually is a Roman lift. Defeat the 
Romans to make it rise.

Take the torch and lit it. Let Asterix go to the blue circle and then bash 
his way up with Obelix by bashing the cogwheel. Lit the fireplace up there 
and defeat the Romans. Jump down and collect the helmets and multiplier. Do 
the same thing again with Obelix. Now you continue the path and defeat the 
Roman. Go up lit the torch and blast the door. Take Obelix with you now and 
now you control him. Bash the iron boxes and continue through the cave. Now 
you control Asterix again. Bash the Romans and save by hitting the sleeping 
druid.  

-----------
| STAGE 2 |
-----------

Here you must defeat the 40 barbarians to unlock the fireplace. Before you 
go in to the fight I strongly suggest you to break some boxes because there 
are several Magic Potions in those boxes. Also break the iron boxes while 
you have the super power to get some golden helmets and multipliers. Bash 
every box to collect as many helmets as possible.

After defeating the 40 barbarians light the torch and then set the gun 
barrel on fire. It will blow up the snowy wall and you now have a new 
passage. You will now see the spy again.

He wants you to collect 2000 helmets during your way down the slope. Good 
luck! Your price is a ***Golden Laurel***. Go to the right and collect it. 
If you go to the right from the laurel you must look out for the icy balls 
and then bash the single Roman there. Push the red button on the wall to 
the left to make it change to green.

From the button you can see 4 high pillars of boxes. Bash one down with 
Obelix, but not to the ground! Bash it so you can stand upon it. Then bash 
another pillar so you can jump from your first pillar to your second and 
last to the third. Then jump out to the slope and collect 3 10X and you 
will now multiply ever helmet with 30! Yay! When you have slide your way 
down I suggest you to bash the iron boxes with Obelix to get some more 
golden helmets. 

Continue along with the other wall and bash the first button. Jump up on 
the next platform and defeat the 2 Romans. Bash the button there. Left from 
there you can see some iron boxes. Bash them and you will get some golden 
and blue helmets along with a 10X multiplier.

Continue the path and defeat the 3 Roman formations by jumping in the 
middle of the circle. Smash them to heaven! Smash the boxes there and turn 
back. Now you should be able to see a new red button on the icy wall to the 
right. Press it and go back to the grey spot. Now the big icy ball will 
roll down and destroy the pile of snow. You have now found a new ***Golden 
Laurel***!

If you want to, you can ride down the slope again by using the catapult 
near the grey spot. Otherwise continue your way on the path through the 
mountain. You will now play as Asterix again.

Bash the Romans and collect all their helmets. Follow the tiny path to the 
left to get some more helmets. To the right in the water you have a new 
shield. Take the torch and then bash the 2 Romans. Go into the only open 
cave and light the torch.

This might cause you some trouble because you have to let your torch 
burning. Wait until the wind has calmed down and run to the opening to the 
right where the helmets are. Then run to the left and light the fireplace 
there. Run to the right to hide from the wind again and then continue to 
the right and light the fireplace over there. Bash the Romans! After you 
have defeated your enemies go back to the fireplace and go to the left from 
it and break the boxes to get 3 3X multipliers. Now bash all the boxes you 
see and grab every helmet you can.

Light your torch again and continue the path through the cave but beware of 
the strong winds. Wait until the wind has calmed down and run like never 
before and light the fireplace further in the cave. Don’t bother the Romans 
until the fireplace has been lit, then bash them. Break the boxes also.

Light your torch once again and run when the wind has calmed down and light 
the fireplace near Obelix. Now it’s time to blow the sealed entrance. Light 
the gun barrel and BANG! You are free!

Light the torch again and run outside to the left. Blow up the gun barrel 
there and pull the lever to eject a bridge. Go to the bridge and if you 
want some helmets you should jump out on the little cliff and bash the 
boxes there to get 2 3X multipliers and then jump out to the other cliff to 
get some more helmets. 

Continue over the bridge and bash the boxes near the entrance. Defeat the 4 
Romans to unlock the catapult. You see the gun barrels on the cliff to the 
right, huh? Run back and light the torch but this time you will have to be 
very quick. Run back and light the gun barrel on the ground near the 
catapult. You will see a movie clip when the barrel has blown and every 
barrel on the mountain will blow and so even the pile of rocks. You have 
now found yet another ***Golden Laurel***. Go get it! Then activate the 
catapult.

Now you must defeat 60 Roman soldiers to unlock the lever. You know how to 
bash them and how to break the big Roman formation. Pull the lever down 
when they are all defeated. 

Before you go into the newly opened path I suggest you to go and find all 
helmets you can and grab the 2 shields. One shield is upon a tent and the 
other one is behind one of the watchtowers. Save if you want to (hit the 
sleeping druid).

-----------
| STAGE 3 |
-----------

Go into the cave and let Asterix climb up to the cableway. Now take Obelix 
and bash all boxes to take some helmets and multipliers. If you break all 
boxes including the iron boxes you should have multipliers worth 55 helmets 
per ordinary blue helmet and 550 for every golden helmet! Behind those iron 
boxes is a button. Press it and a bridge will appear over you. Now it’s 
time for Obelix to pull Asterix to the other side of the cave with the 
cableway. Light the torch and run upwards the bridge and collect the 
***Golden Laurel***. Jump down and run quickly to the gun barrel and blow 
it up. 

Go out through the gate and talk to the spy. He says there is a double-
locked door which you cannot enter yet. You must first collect 750 helmets. 
Move forward and bash some Romans. You will now encounter a new Roman 
formation, but you can’t jump into the middle this time because they have 
spears there. They won’t point their spears upwards either so you can’t 
defeat them yet. But move forward to the great wall and there you see a 
Maximus Repeating Cannon. Horray! Now, shoot everyone you see! If you hold 
the button too long the cannon will start shooting upwards. The helmets 
will disappear if you don’t go and pick them up, so do not wait too long 
before you collect them.

To speed up the battle you should break the boxes to get multipliers and 
jump on the roofs of the tents because there are 2 10X multipliers on one 
side and on the other 2 3X multipliers. When you are finished go and talk 
to the spy again. He will open up a new way for you. He also tells you that 
some of the villagers were transported this way. 

Go inside the cave and bash the Romans inside. When you are out of the cave 
you can go and save if you want. Go immediately to the right when you are 
out of the cave to see the sleeping druid. Hit him to save.

-----------
| STAGE 4 |
-----------

Start here by letting Asterix light the torch. You will now only use 
Obelix. Destroy the iron boxes and grab all helmets in there. There are 
also a 10X multiplier there. Jump upon the machine and it will bounce you 
up to another platform. Pull the lever down and you now control Asterix 
again. Run with the torch as fast as you can and run over the bridge. Then 
jump up into the boat and then out to the platform where the fireplace is. 
Light it. 

Then jump back to the ship again and then out to the platform from the back 
of the ship. The fireplace will now be locked and to unlock it you will 
have to defeat the 4 barbarians on the ship and the 2 Roman archers on each 
side of the boat. Defeat the archers first. When you have unlocked the 
fireplace you go back and light the torch again. Bring the torch on fire to 
the other fireplace and light it too. 

Move Asterix into the blue circle and you control Obelix again. Jump on the 
machine and it will bounce you to the next platform. Bash the cogwheel 
overthere so Asterix can jump out and grab the rope. When Asterix has 
grabbed the rope you just bash the cogwheel again to get him to the other 
side. Now run with Obelix and jump on the machine again and it will bounce 
you to another platform. Pull the lever down to eject a bridge. Now you 
control Asterix again. Run over the bridge and light the fireplace. 

Jump into the ship and bash the barbarians, then jump out from it and bash 
the Romans. Run back and light the torch. Get your ass quickly to the gun 
barrel and blow it. But before you discover your new path I suggest you do 
some things before that. You see the island with many rocks and many 
helmets? Swim over there, but don’t grab any helmets. Why? Bash the boxes 
instead and you will get 3 3X multipliers and now move quickly up to the 
little rock in front of you. Now you can reach the 10X multiplier on the 
top of the rock. Now grab as many helmets you can!

After you have done that there is just one thing left to do here. Go back 
from where you last saved or where you entered this harbour. Swim out to 
the left side of the river. There you should be able to see an elevator and 
some buttons. Bash those buttons. But there is a catch. You must hit all 3 
buttons as the elevator goes up in right order. When you have done that you 
have collected another ***Golden Laurel***. Now leave the harbour through 
the cave.

Defeat the 2 barbarians and then let Asterix use the cableway. Push the 
lever on the right side to eject a bridge. Now you’ll play as Obelix. When 
you have crossed the bridge with Obelix and Idefix you can see a cave to 
the left, but you can’t get it in yet. Go to the right and you can see 
Asterix standing on the platform above you. Pull out the 2 giant rocks out 
of the mountain and then you will see the red light turning green on the 
ground when you have pulled them out. Go back to the cave entrance because 
now it is open. Defeat the barbarians inside the cave and take the 
***Golden Laurel*** further in. Continue up over the 2 big rocks and jump 
over the wall.

You will land on a catapult so don’t press A too quickly. Defeat the 20 
Romans to unlock the grey spot. There are 19 Romans on the ground and one 
in a mountain cave. He is an archer so I suggest you to be careful. Just 
place Asterix in the blue circle and you control Obelix again. Bash the 
cogwheel with Obelix so Asterix can reach the archer. Up there is also a 
box and several golden and blue helmets. Break the box first to get 7 3X 
multipliers. Then take all the helmets and the shield.

On the largest pillar of boxes is a 10X multiplier so bash the second 
pillar down a little bit so you can jump on top of it and reach the 
multiplier. There are also 2 10X multipliers in the iron boxes and remember 
that you can only break them with Obelix, so Asterix must stand in the blue 
circle. Break all boxes and then go to the grey spot and stand on it to 
release the metal ball. It will break the wall and open up a new path for 
you.

Go into the cave and go through the thin passage with Asterix. Pick up the 
torch and then push the button to open up the entrance for Obelix. Obelix 
must pull the lever down to open the path for Asterix, but first he has to 
defeat 4 enemies. 

When Asterix path is open, light the torch and blow the rocks away. 
Continue through the cave.

You see the big war machine? The only way to defeat it is to bash it on the 
sides where it has its arms attached to the main body. After its arms are 
gone you just bash it until it goes down. That is 1 of 30 enemies you have 
to defeat here. 

After all enemies are gone move back to the cave you just came from. There 
are many iron boxes there and a Magic Potion. Stand on the regular boxes 
and jump up to take the Magic Potion. Now you bash all the iron boxes and 
what you get is 7 10X (!!!!!) multipliers and a lot of golden helmets. 
Behind the tent near the water you will find some more Magic Potion and 
even more iron boxes. There is also a Magic Potion on the right side of the 
catapult which you can reach with a triple jump when you have just taken a 
Magic Potion.

Try the lottery as well near the cave. Bash the cogwheel and see what you 
win! You can do that several times. Then use the catapult to reach another 
part of Normandy. Go and save if you like to first. 

-----------
| STAGE 5 |
-----------

To the left you can see a Golden Laurel, but to reach it you must have 
Magic Potion. But unfortunately there is no Magic Potion near it. Leave it 
for a while. Go up through the cave to the right of the sleeping druid. 
Continue all the way to the top and grab the torch. Up there you will find 
yet another cave which contains 2 barbarians, a fireplace and 2 golden 
helmets. Defeat your enemies, grab the helmets and light your torch. Now, 
run back down to the sleeping druid and light the gun barrel.

Now it is time to focus on the Golden Laurel. You can see 4 red lights and 
a grey spot which means that you will have to find 4 red buttons that you 
must turn to green. The first one is out in the water behind the big rock. 
Another button is on the right placed on the cliff. To the left of that one 
there is also another big rock in the water. Behind it is another red 
button. The last button is on the backside of the rock where the laurel is. 
Get back to the grey spot and see what happens. 

Whoa, a Magic Potion! Get out in the water and do a triple jump to grab the 
***Golden Laurel***. Then you can go back to the grey spot and get another 
Magic Potion. Then you should bash all iron boxes you see. There are some 
iron boxes on the plateau to the right of the druid too. There are 2 10X 
multipliers downstairs and 2 10X multipliers upstairs. Continue through the 
cave you opened before.

Go forward and push the granite block into the mountain so you will have 
somewhere to hide from the strong wind. Before you light the torch you 
should go down and defeat the barbarians and push the other granite block 
into the mountain if you want to. Then go back and light the torch. You 
have to a double jump to make your way over the gap. Run with your torch 
and light the fireplace where the barbarians were.

Use the same strategy to the other way too. This you should just blow the 
gun barrel. Then get yourself out of the cave and enter yet another Roman 
camp.

Go to the left from the cave entrance and bash the barbarians. In front of 
the houses there you can see red lights. To turn them green you will have 
to go inside and bush the button inside the house. Bash everything around 
to get helmets and look behind the houses too. The 2 remaining houses are 
to the right. One is near another cave entrance and the other one is turned 
against the ice. When all 4 buttons are green you go back to the area where 
you defeated the barbarians. Up on the plateau is the grey spot. Stand on 
it and get a HUGE NUMBER of GOLDEN HELMETS!

Now go to the first watchtower. On the left side of it you can see a 
button. Press it and you will find out that it is an elevator. Look forward 
up there and you can see a blue circle. Jump into it and you now control 
Obelix. Behind and in front of the tower Asterix is on top of is a handle. 
Go near it and press A to push or pull the tower. Move it till you cannot 
move it anymore. Then go and get the other watchtower. When it is close to 
the one Asterix is on top of he will jump over to the next one. Then move 
this tower again. It will come some Romans, but they are no match for you 
now. On the last tower Asterix will be waiting to get the rope. How will 
you get it to him? By bashing the cogwheel of course! But you cannot do 
that until you have bashed 30 Romans. Good luck!

After they are defeated you have some iron boxes to the right from the 
cogwheel. Inside them are 2 10X multipliers and some golden helmets. Also 
in some ordinary boxes in the right corner of this camp is 7 3X multipliers 
too. This is a great opportunity to get some extra helmets. 

Get back to the cogwheel and bash it. When Asterix grab the rope you will 
bash the cogwheel again to make him get over to the lever. Pull the lever 
down and you have a new path.

But first let’s get a laurel. If you have bashed the boxes under the laurel 
you can’t get it. If you have done it I suggest you should die! When you 
get back to life again the boxes will appear again. Stand on them, do a 
double jump to reach the button on the wall and then you will be lift up by 
the elevator to the ***Golden Laurel***. Now continue through the cave you 
opened the entrance to earlier.

You must defeat 8 Romans here before you do something else. Unfortunately 
ordinary Roman soldiers doesn’t count, so you will have to defeat 8 Roman 
centurions (the ones that have golden clothes and can stand more hits than 
the others). Inside one of the formations is a Magic Potion and if you grab 
it you will find it very useful. There are more Magic Potions here and the 
only way to reach them is to do a triple jump into the air. So you can keep 
you super power alive for a long time if you take a new potion before the 
other one goes out. While you have the super power you should also break 
the iron boxes there. After they are defeated you can go and get the torch 
near the cave you just came from. 

Jump into the other formation and bash them to heaven because inside the 
formation is the fireplace. Light the torch and blow the gun barrel. A new 
path is open. Now you can see the spy again. He wants you to collect 3000 
helmets for him down the slope. Yippee!

If you managed to collect 3000 helmets down the slope you will get a prize! 
And the prize is the last ***Golden Laurel*** in Normandy!

You see the large piles of boxes? Don’t break them! Jump on top of them to 
get the multipliers first. There are multipliers worth 38X on those boxes!

There are also 2 catapults here. The one to the left shoots you up the 
slope again if you failed the first ride or want to collect some more 
helmets. The second one to the right is the one you should take if you want 
to leave this area.

-----------
| STAGE 6 |
-----------

The peddler is here if you want to buy some new combos and after the ride 
in the slope you will have plenty of helmets. Buy all combos you can 
afford. Bash every box here and then get out from the cave. 


---> The Boss <---

RUN!!! The big war machine is after you. Run as quickly as you can and 
don’t bother to break those boxes. Get yourself to the safe platform by 
turning to the left or right. Inside the sealed door you can see your 
friends Fulliomatix and Unhygienix. To open the door you must defeat the 
war machine.

Place Asterix into the blue circle on the other side. Bash the cogwheel so 
Asterix can get up and use the cableway. He will land on a button that 
releases the arms of the machine. It is time for Obelix to do a double jump 
over one of the arms and bash the screws where the arms are attached to the 
body. The arm will then explode and Asterix will be thrown back. This time 
the machine will be launching some type of grenades towards you. Just 
repeat this until all arms are gone and then you can free your friends.

When the machine is gone you will get 8 10X multipliers and a lot of golden 
and blue helmets. Then go bash the button. 

Fulliomatix and Unhygienix are mad at you! Why? Because it took you so long 
to free them. They tell you that Geriatrix and Panacea are held prisoners 
in Athens, Greece. You will receive another piece of Caesar’s Great Map. 
Now quickly go to Athens!

5 Stages
12 Golden Laurels

-----------
| STAGE 1 |
-----------

Take the ***Golden Laurel*** behind you. Bash the boxes on the sides and on 
the right side is 3 3X multipliers. To the left is a way down to the ocean, 
but the peddler is also there. Buy new combos from him.

Continue on the path and then you will have to defeat 30 Romans to unlock 
the button near the town entrance on the right side. A catapult loaded with 
rocks is also firing at you when you get close to that entrance. Defeat it 
first. It is on the left side from the entrance. Just bash it until it 
breaks down. Then go bash the other remaining Romans. 

When you have finished the Romans go search every roof for boxes, helmets 
and multipliers. When that is done, you should swim out to the island and 
collect the helmets there. Swim around it and you will find a cave. There 
is 2 10X multipliers, a golden helmets and many blue helmets. Behind the 
boxes is a ***Golden Laurel***. Swim back to the village and press the 
button to reach the town.

Get in through the smaller gate with Asterix and bash the button to open 
the larger door for Obelix and Dogmatix. To the left is some boxes 
containing 3 3X multipliers. Follow the path up to collect some helmets. 
Defeat the Roman there and grab the torch.

Place Asterix into the blue circle. Let Obelix bash the cogwheel so Asterix 
can reach the next platform. Bash the boxes and then the button on the wall 
beside the door. In the next area you should collect the helmets to the 
right and then light the torch. Jump down and try to avoid the Romans. Get 
to the place where Obelix is and blow the gun barrel. Just stick the torch 
through the bars. Now, go and bash the Romans!

There are 5 red buttons in here. 2 is to the right of the entrance to the 
building, one is to the left of that entrance and the remaining 2 is on the 
other side of this area (1 is hidden behind the wall to the right). Go back 
to the building entrance and bash all boxes in here and then go to the 
machine. The machine will now throw you many golden helmets.

You are playing as Obelix so the iron boxes are not a problem. Bash them 
and you reach a new part of the town. 

The spy is in there. He says he can open the temple doors if you can 
eliminate the Roman Empire’s most terrifying lions. What are you waiting 
for? You can eliminate them easier if you open the pit by standing on one 
of the grey spots. Every time a lion falls into the pit you will be 
rewarded from the machines near the temple doors. When they are eliminated 
you should break some boxes because they contain a lot of 3X multipliers on 
both sides! When you feel finished you should go and speak to the spy 
again. 

At both corners after the entrance are red buttons. Bash them and turn them 
green. Further in is a lever hidden by a couple of boxes. Pull it down and 
make it green. Hidden by boxes further in is a red button. 2 other levers 
are placed near the grey spots in the water. Walk over one of the grey 
spots and the light will turn green up on platform. Stand on the other grey 
spot to make the last light shine green too. Then go up the platform and 
stand on the grey spot there. Then the elevator will rise, so you must be 
quick and jump on it and then jump to the ***Golden Laurel***. On the wall 
behind the laurel is a button, bash it and you will be handsomely rewarded. 
Just do the same thing again with the grey spots. Save your game by hitting 
the sleeping druid.

-----------
| STAGE 2 |
-----------

Now it is time to go further in temple. Bash the Romans on your way and 
then the spy will talk to you again. He says you must keep the fire alive 
through the temple maze and you are lucky who already have a torch in your 
hand.

Smash the boxes around you and then light your torch. Try to avoid the 
Romans and don’t fall into the water. Jump from platform to platform and 
light the fireplace. To the left you have a little room full of boxes. 
Break them and you will see some golden helmets! Go back into the other 
room if you want some more action or helmets. If you fall into the water 
and the torch stops burning you have to go back to the last fireplace you 
have lit. 

Light the torch and a blue circle will appear. Jump into it. You now 
control Obelix. Go up and a lock appears over the cogwheel. Before you do 
something else I suggest you to go and look to the left. There are 4 lights 
there. The lights on the right and left side are flashing green and the 2 
in the middle are flashing red. There are 3 red lights on the floor too. Go 
to the far end to the right and there you will see 4 red buttons. Bash the 
one to the far left and the one to the far right. Now go back and now you 
will see that one of the lights on the floor is green and that the lights 
on the wall have changed place. Remember how it looks like and go back to 
the 4 buttons on the right side. Bash the green ones back to red again and 
then bash the new combination that was on the left side to green. Go back 
and a second light will be green on the floor and on the wall is a new 
combination. When the third combination is done you should go back to the 
grey spot and the machine and then you will see that the third light on the 
floor will be green too. Now you will be rewarded with 5 10X multipliers 
and a huge number of golden helmets.

Now go down and defeat the lion trainer to unlock the cogwheel. It doesn’t 
happen anything if you just kill lions, you must defeat the human trainer 
to unlock it. Now go up and bash the cogwheel so Asterix can get the rope. 
When he has grabbed the rope you will just bash the cogwheel again and he 
will be landing on the other side. Quickly light the fireplace.

Light the torch and run to the blue circle on the other side of the 
fireplace. Go down and bash the cogwheel with Obelix to get the rope to 
Asterix. When Asterix has grabbed the rope you bash the cogwheel once again 
with Obelix. Go out to granite block, but first defeat the Romans. After 
the enemies are gone you push the block toward the fireplace. Light the 
fireplace with Asterix and then blow the gun barrel. Go inside the small 
tunnel with Asterix and press the button on the other side to open up the 
door for Obelix and Dogmatix. Save you game by bashing the sleeping druid.

-----------
| STAGE 3 |
-----------

Now you are playing as Obelix. Go inside and smash all boxes. Move back to 
the fire place and light the torch. Go back to the druid and up the stairs 
to blow up the gun barrel. Let’s go talk to the spy.

The door is closed and to open it you must defeat 25 Romans. There is 
another room to the right and inside there is a new shield if you are 
running out of life. When they are all defeated, go to the spy and he will 
open the door for you.

Now you need to defeat 20 enemies to unlock the fireplace. If you need more 
life you should take the right corridor and then go around the corner to 
get a new shield. There are also 4 3X multipliers in there. After the 
enemies are defeated, grab the torch and light it.

Now you are playing as Obelix again. Go to the right corridor and push the 
logs into the wall as much as you can. After all logs are done you also 
push the giant granite block. Then a blue circle appears. Place Obelix in 
it.

This is kinda tricky, but with timed jumps you should manage to get over to 
the other side with the torch burning. If you fall into the water you have 
to light your torch and start over again. Light the fireplace and go inside 
the new room. Defeat the lions and the lion trainer in there, then go back 
and light the torch. Go to the fence and blow the gun barrel to open up the 
path for Obelix and Dogmatix. 

In this room you can see large windows. One of those windows is open. Jump 
through it and you will get multipliers worth 40 helmets per ordinary 
helmet. Bash every box you see. You may talk to the spy if you want to, but 
it is optional. Continue down to the ocean on the path just after the spy 
and out in the ocean you can see a ***Golden Laurel***. Swim out and 
collect it with Obelix. Continue up to the top, but don’t collect any 
helmets! Defeat all Romans and then go up. Slide on the edge and collect 
all helmets because there is a 10X multiplier at the top. Continue down and 
open the door by pressing the button on the wall.

Now continue the small path and beware of the Romans in here! Jump over 
them if you can. Try to collect the shield. If you choose to pick a fight, 
you will probably be bashed over the edge. Bash the iron boxes.

Go forward and bash every Roman you see, but don’t bash the boxes or 
collect any helmets. You see those platforms in the water? Clean them from 
Romans. Now you can light your torch and jump between the platforms until 
you reach the cableway. Let Asterix go into it. Now you are controlling 
Obelix.

Move Asterix a little bit with Obelix and you will see that you can’t pass 
until you have pushed the logs into the building. Do so. Then go back to 
the fireplace and behind the wall near it is a machine with lights now 
turned green. That means a bonus. This time it is 10 3X multipliers. Now 
you can break every box you see and collect all helmets. 

Go back to Asterix, but let him be there. Jump over the wall and you can 
see a bridge which is pointing upwards. Go to the other side of the bridge 
and pull the lever down. Now the bridge is complete. Move Asterix to the 
bridge and let him run over it and light the fireplace on the other side.

In the cave you can see 3 giant lifts. To make them move upwards you have 
to defeat all enemies on them. When you have reached the top, slide down on 
the slope to the right and then light the torch. Make your way up the lift 
again and this time you gotta move fast so the torch doesn’t lose its fire. 
Light the gun barrel and a new path has appeared. Wake up the druid if you 
want to save here.

-----------
| STAGE 4 |
-----------

Use the Maximus Repeating Cannon in here. Push the target-painted granite 
block back and then move the cannon so its target is the painted granite 
block. Fire! A new path is opened. Defeat the Romans that has appeared. 

Now change the direction of the painted block. Move it as much as you can 
towards the cannon. The rocks you are firing now bounces between the 
painted blocks and finally destroys the sealed cave. In there is another 
***Golden Laurel***.

Move into the new room to the left and defeat the Romans in there. Move up 
the stairs and push the button with Asterix. Go through the small door, 
grab the torch and go to the grey spot. The larger door downstairs will now 
open up, but there is also another door to open for Obelix and Dogmatix. 
Move Obelix to the grey spot to open up the fence for Asterix. Move the 
second granite block to the grey spot and you will open up the larger door 
a little. Obelix can’t get through, but Asterix can. 

Move Asterix into the other room and light your torch. Run back to Obelix 
and move up on the elevator. Bash the cogwheel to get Asterix up. When 
you’re up, blow the gun barrel inside the fence. Now move the large granite 
block to the grey spot to open up the large door completely for Obelix.

Now bash the iron boxes with Obelix and the spy will talk to you. He tells 
you about something precious in the library not from there. Let’s go and 
check it out!

To the right are 6 red lights which mean you have to find 6 red buttons. 
The first button is behind the large granite block. While you are there, 
pull the granite block back to open a new way for Asterix. The second one 
is on the wall at the platform below the fence. Jump down from the 
bookshelf and get then 10X multiplier. Then follow the helmets to the left 
and bash all boxes. At the end of the corridor to the right are 2 boxes. 
Behind those boxes is a third button. Go back, but take left. When the 
bookshelves ends at the right side just turn around because the fourth 
button is just behind you on the side of the shelf. Get back again, but 
this time you go to the stairs. To the left of the stairs are 3 boxes and 
behind them is another button. The last one is to the right of the stairs 
on the bookshelf. Get up and stand on the grey spot. You have retrieved 
another ***Golden Laurel***!

Obelix opened up a path for you. At the end of this path you see a 
cableway, get on it. It will take you to the quay. Visit the peddler. Buy 
some new combos if you can afford it. Another advice is to buy as many 
shields as you can carry because you will come to a great fight very soon. 

When you are ready, pass the bridge to the other side of the quay. Now you 
will have to defeat 60 Romans by yourself. Don’t be too reckless now! If 
you are running out of life you have a new shield in the water to the left 
of the bridge. When 8 enemies are left you will face lions and lion 
trainers, so be extra careful. When everyone is defeated, pull the lever 
down.

Obelix will now join you again. Get down to the water and swim along the 
quay where the catapult is. After you have swam by the quay you will find a 
secret room with a ***Golden Laurel***. Now get back to the quay again.   
 
There are 3 3X multipliers and 1 10X multiplier on the platform near the 
catapult. There are also 4 3X multipliers after the tree in the boxes near 
the open oven. 2 more 3X multipliers can also be found near the catapult in 
the boxes.

Go up the path after the lever but turn left immediately and get yourself 
up on that roof. From that roof you can see a ***Golden Laurel*** on the 
roof of the entrance to the library.

You have finally made it through the temple maze! A-maze-ing isn’t it? Use 
the catapult to reach another part of Athens. Go and wake the druid up to 
save the game. 

-----------
| STAGE 5 |
-----------

Turn around and get the helmets in the ocean. Swim out to the island. Swim 
to the backside to climb to the top. Here are several 3X multipliers and 
10X multipliers and hordes of helmets. It’s heaven! When you have smashed 
every box, jump down through the hole and collect the ***Golden Laurel***. 
Get back to town again.

Defeat every enemy you see. Directly to the left from the entrance is a 10X 
multiplier and a 3X multiplier is hidden in one of the boxes. Another 3X 
multiplier is placed straight ahead, you cannot miss it. Break every box 
you see. Go to the right of that multiplier and you will find a path near 
the corner of that building. Follow it and jump down the big hole in the 
fence. Follow the path and there is no way back as you may see. At the end 
of this path is 50 Roman soldiers you must defeat to unlock a button. When 
9 enemies remaining you will face lions and lion trainers. After all are 
defeated except Asterix, Obelix and Dogmatix, go into the cage and collect 
some helmets. Then go to the door, press the button and use the catapult to 
get back to the town. On your way back to the town you will get some 
helmets and a ***Golden Laurel***.

Bash the Romans after you have landed and then let Asterix get into the 
cableway to the right. Jump down under Asterix and defeat the Roman there. 
To the left is some helmets, collect them and after those helmets is 
another ***Golden Laurel***.

Now pull Asterix on his cableway until you reach the pitfall. Release the 
rope and bash the lions and the Romans to outer space. When they are 
defeated just continue your ride with Asterix. Some Roman soldiers will 
appear, but they know how to fight after they have reached the Moon. He 
he... Move the giant granite block so you can walk on it and take Asterix 
over it and then to the other side. When Asterix has reached his 
destination, go to the left and bash the cogwheel to get Obelix up too. Use 
Obelix to break the iron boxes. Continue the path.

Now you have to defeat 100 Romans! Have a GREAT time! After the 100 Romans 
are defeated, place Asterix in the blue circle. You now control Obelix. Go 
back to the entrance you came from and walk down to the ship. There is one 
10X multiplier and two 3X multipliers and lot of helmets there. Move back 
to Asterix and bash the cogwheel to get Asterix on top of the roof. Bash 
the Romans, take all helmets and break all boxes. Go to the right of the 
roof and use the cableway to reach the BONUS ISLAND!

This is an awesome island full of golden helmets and multipliers. Bash 
every single box and collect every single helmet and multiplier. Then begin 
your way up to the top. Use the elevators to get up and when you have 
reached the top, jump down through the hole and collect the last ***Golden 
Laurel*** in Athens. Get up to the top again and ride the cableway to get 
some more multipliers and helmets.

Where you land is a fireplace, a Maximus Repeating Cannon and some boxes, 
but no torch. Break the boxes and maybe it is behind them. Was I correct? 
Light the torch and blow the gun barrel. When the gun barrel explodes a 
lock will appear on the cannon so you will simply have to defeat another 30 
poor Romans. Use the cannon to blow out the wall. Then continue the path. 
Smash every box and collect every helmet and the 3X multiplier before you 
go to the boss.

---> The Boss <---

It is a boss exactly as the boss in Normandy. This time you will face 
Romans and pitfalls on your way to the safe platform. Just ignore the 
Romans because they will be crushed by the war machine.

Place Asterix on the elevator. Bash the cogwheel so Asterix can get up and 
use the cableway. He will land on a button that releases the arms of the 
machine. It is time for Obelix to do a double jump over one of the arms and 
bash the screws where the arms are attached to the body. The arm will then 
explode and Asterix will be thrown back. This time the machine will be 
launching some type of grenades towards you. Just repeat this until all 
arms are gone and then you can free your friends. Be careful!

When the fight is over collect the 8 10X multipliers and all the helmets.
Then bash the button to release the ladies. They will give you another 
piece of Caesar’s broken Great Map.

6 Stages
12 ***Golden Laurels***

-----------
| STAGE 1 |
-----------

Turn around and grab the shield, then go towards the torch. It will now 
appear a lock over the torch and you must defeat 100 Roman soldiers. If you 
follow the path you can see some boxes and some of those contain Magic 
Potions and if you look into the air you can also find some helpful 
potions. When you have defeated around 90-95 Romans they will stop run to 
you. Now you have to find them which can be a little tricky. Check 
everywhere in the grass because they are hiding in it.

After all 100 are defeated go light the torch and blow the gun barrel. Next 
area is covered by several Roman formations. To defeat those formations you 
will have to use Magic Potion. You can find it on the largest pile of boxes 
in the middle. You will now have to use the elastic band to get your way 
through the formations. Quickly jump up on the boxes and then grab the 
potion. Now you know what to do!

In some of the boxes you can find 11 3X multipliers! If you are running 
short of helmets you now have a perfect opportunity to change that. 
Continue the path. Here you will see that the Romans are building a bridge, 
but their defence is not bad! They have some ordinary soldiers, but they 
also got a catapult which will throw rocks at you. You can see it through a 
hole in the wall. Go there and bash the catapult to the moon. Defeat the 
Romans inside and light the torch. 

Move out on the bridge and then light the fireplace. Swim out to the right 
and collect the helmets in the water. Swim forward and behind the great 
cliffs you will find a ***Golden Laurel***. Swim around the cliff and get 
back to the bridge. Defeat the Romans on the small platforms in the water. 
Release the bridge by pulling the lever down on the platform to the left. 
Now it is time to see the spy again. This time he will tell you about the 
Roman flying Corps. But the most important thing is to light the four 
fireplaces on the field there. 

Bash all Romans there and then go to the left and you will see some helmets 
and 2 10X multipliers. Collect ‘em. Near the tents you can find some more 
multipliers and helmets. To reach all multipliers you need to bash one of 
the piles with boxes, but not to the ground. Then jump up on it and then up 
to the other one. Up there you can find 2 10X multipliers. Now, get back to 
the fireplace at the bridge.

Let Asterix light the torch and get inside the blue circle. You can now 
control Obelix. Get up on the bridge with Obelix and bash the cogwheel. 
When Asterix has grabbed the rope, bash the cogwheel again. Jump on the 
platforms and light the other fireplace. Now light the 4 remaining 
fireplaces out on the field. Beware of the flying corps! They will try to 
blow out your fireplaces immediately after you have lit them. The only way 
to light them all and have all burning at the same time is to defeat them. 
When they go down to blow out your fire, jump up and bash them. After all 4 
fireplaces are burning, go and talk to the spy again and he will open up a 
new path for you. The peddler is near the cave entrance if you want to buy 
a new combo or shield.   

Collect the helmets in the cave and to the right when you have reached the 
end of it you can see a sleeping druid. Bash him if you want to save.

-----------
| STAGE 2 |
-----------

To the left you can see a blue lighted circle, jump in it. Bash the 
cogwheel with Obelix. Continue as long as you can with Asterix in the cave 
and collect the helmets and the shield. After you have done that go back to 
the edge and you can see an elevator in the wall. Push the button. Now get 
into the cableway. Go on the bridge to the left and bash the Romans, but 
watch out so you don’t get bashed out from the bridge. Bash the cogwheel to 
get Obelix up on the bridge too. Now you can see some iron boxes and some 
multipliers. On the boxes and in the boxes are multipliers worth 26X! 

Now the path separates. Go to the right and swim out in the water and get 
the ***Golden Laurel***. When you swim back you will face some Roman 
soldiers. Defeat them! Go back and take the other path to the left this 
time. Bash the boxes there and pull the granite block to the grey spot to 
open the door. Some Romans will attack when you pull the granite block. 
Smash them!

When you have opened the door you will play as Asterix again. Now you will 
have to defeat 50 Romans to unlock the button. Continue along with the wall 
and go behind the tree and you will find another button. Push it. A Roman 
formation is guarding the entrance to the temple, jump over them and behind 
the pillar to the left is a new button. Jump down to the right and on a 
post under the cableway you will find a third button. Go behind the temple 
and defeat the 50 Romans there. Behind the defeated Romans there are some 
boxes and behind those is the last button. Go back from where you first 
came and bash the unlocked button on the wall to use the cableway. When 
Obelix has pulled Asterix around the cableway you will need to defeat the 4 
Roman formations to unlock another button. Push the lever beside Asterix.

When the lever is down you will get some Magic Potions. Defeat the Roman 
formations and move Asterix around the cableway again. Now push the 
unlocked button. The door under you will open. Before you go, be sure to 
have bashed all boxes around the area.

Bash the boxes in here and defeat the Romans attacking you. To the left you 
can see a button on the wall. When you are near it, it will be locked. You 
will now have to defeat 3 Roman officers. After that is done (it should 
take a while) you can push the button to unlock the cableway. Move Asterix 
around and defeat the Romans on your way. Get your way up by using the 
elevator. Bash the Romans up there and then use the cableway up there.

Get the 2 10X multipliers and then use the Maximus Repeating Cannon to 
break the iron boxes and defeat the Roman soldiers. Go back to the gate and 
open it by pushing the button on the wall and get Obelix in there. Blow out 
the wall with the cannon and if you want a new shield you can push the 
granite block near the wall and then fire the cannon. 

Use the cannon to activate the button above the gate that leads to the 
catapult. You will reach it by holding the action button in and the cannon 
should start shooting higher. When you hit the button you will receive a 
***Golden Laurel***.

Use the catapult to get to the next area of Helvetia. Near the catapult, 
where you landed, is a saving point.

-----------
| STAGE 3 |
-----------

Here’s an awesome opportunity to collect a lot of helmets. You can see a 
Magic Potion just in front of you. Both to the left and to the right are a 
lot of boxes. Bash them but check out if there are some multipliers on top 
of the boxes that you cannot reach if you bash all boxes.

When all boxes on the left side are gone, go to the right and bash the ones 
there. If you follow the shore to the right you might see some more boxes 
but more importantly is a ***Golden Laurel*** which you can find behind the 
trees. Go back and talk to the spy near the bridge.

Cesar’s troops have destroyed the bridge but as you can understand there is 
a way to get over to the other side. No matter how many Romans you defeat 
on the bridge they will just continue to come so don’t bother to fight 
because you will eventually die if you fight for too long. On the plateau 
on the bridge you can see some boxes. In the boxes to the left are 2 3X 
multipliers and in all the other ones helmets. When you get to the giant 
elevator, just defeat every single Roman soldier.

When you reach the next level you can find a 10X multipliers on top of some 
of the boxes. Some Romans will try to beat you up. There is a cableway not 
far from you. Use it. Jump your way up to the top of the building and use 
the cableway to the right. Now you see 4 grey spots and 4 lamps. All of 
them must turn green before you get the award. On this one I won’t help 
you. You must figure out in which particular order you must jump on them to 
get a ***Golden Laurel***.

Jump down and you must defeat 50 Romans to unlock the button to open up the 
passage for Obelix. Continue up and go to the right and put Asterix into 
the blue light. Go back with Obelix and bash the cogwheel. If you fall down 
with Obelix you must get yourself up to the top again. If you want to, you 
can jump down on the plateau below the cogwheel to get another shield. 
Otherwise continue through the new passage.

There are some Romans inside. To the right is a blue light again. Jump into 
it and bash the cogwheel with Obelix to get Asterix on top of the tower. Up 
there you can see 2 piles of boxes. On top of them is a 10X multiplier 
which you can reach if you break some boxes and jump upon them. There is 
also a button on the wall. Push it and the door will open. Now you can push 
the giant granite block to the other side so you can use the Maximus 
repeating cannon to break the wall.

Here you control Obelix and to the right inside the boxes are 4 3X 
multipliers. Use the catapult to reach another tower. Watch out! You must 
defeat 30 Romans to continue. Easy? No, you are being bombarded from the 
air by flying Romans with some sort of grenades. Bash the iron boxes and 
then pull the lever down to open up a new path for Asterix. Take the path 
to the left and you must defeat one Roman to unlock the lever. Easy? No, 
this time you are being bombarded from the air by Romans with spears 
pointing down. When that is down Obelix will team up with you again. Go 
back and take to the right this time.

Pull the lever down and a bridge will appear. In the boxes on the sides are 
multipliers worth 28X and a lot of helmets. In the middle of the platform, 
you can find the peddler. Buy something nice from him and go down and use 
the big catapult to reach another part of Helvetia. Here is a saving point.

-----------
| STAGE 4 |
-----------

Go down to the boat and push the A button to use it. Obelix will now swim 
behind the boat and push it forward. This is going fast so be on high 
alert. There is no way I can guide you trough this boat ride, but after a 
while a ship appears that you can race on. Up on that sunken boat is a 
***Golden Laurel***. You can ride around the track how many times you want. 
After you are finished, use the catapult.

On both sides are some boxes that contain helmets and wild boar meat. 
Further up you can save again. In the boxes to the left are 5 3X 
multipliers and some helmets. In the boxes to the right are only helmets.

-----------
| STAGE 5 |
-----------

Now you must defeat 40 Romans to unlock the catapult. On the roof of the 
second watch tower is a ***Golden Laurel***. To reach it you must use the 
catapult and when you are just above the golden laurel you just jump down 
and collect it.

If you want to you can climb up and collect a new shield, otherwise you 
just continue to walk to the right and bash the boxes over there. You can 
find 2 3X multipliers there. Use the elevators as usual; defeat the Romans 
on it and it will push you up. Continue to go upwards and now use the 
cableway with Asterix. Use the cogwheel to get Obelix up to you. Now you 
control Obelix.

Use the upper path to collect a new shield and jump over the pit. But be 
aware of the Roman soldier who tries to push you down there and if you fall 
down you die and must start over from your last save. Bash the iron boxes 
to get 2 10X multipliers and some golden helmets. Use the catapult to reach 
next level.

There are 2 paths here. Use the one that’s going down first. Don’t bash any 
of the boxes until you reach the end of this path. Bash that box and you 
will get a 10X multiplier. Bash some more boxes and you will get more 
multipliers and helmets.

The upper path has another upper path. Climb up and defeat the Romans near 
the cabin and bash the boxes to the left of the cabin because behind it is 
a new ***Golden Laurel***. Continue this path upwards and then jump down 
when you get to the end of the path to collect some more helmets. You are 
now back on track again. 

Flying Romans are trying to bomb you from the air and watch out for the 
grey spots because if something touches those, a hatch will open and if you 
fall down you will die. You will now find a new elevator. Defeat the Romans 
on it to get up. You have some iron boxes and a shield to the left. Smash 
them and then continue to the right.

Continue inside the cave and inside is a new elevator. To the left you can 
collect some helmets and get a 3X multiplier. To the right you have some 
iron boxes and now you control Obelix so you can easily break those. Behind 
those boxes is a ***Golden Laurel***. Go back to the elevator and continue 
to walk inside the cave.

Inside here is a huge storeroom. Behind the barrels of wine are some golden 
helmets and upon the barrels is a 10X multiplier. Further up is a 3X 
multiplier and some helmets. After you have climbed up a bit you can find a 
single barrel with a board on. Jump up on that small board and climb over 
the barrel to collect yet another ***Golden Laurel***. 

Continue the path and you will find a cave in the cave. To the right you 
have some golden and blue helmets and to the left some boxes contain life 
points. There are also a 10X multiplier and 4 3X multipliers there. After 
you are finished down there you must jump between the pillars. On the last 
pillar is a catapult. Continue up the path with Obelix and you will have to 
defeat 51 Romans up there to continue.

When they are defeated you can push the lever to open up the cableway for 
Asterix. Jump on it and ride up. Grab the torch and bash the boxes, then 
jump down on the path and team up with Obelix. Light the torch near the 
lever and run like crazy up and light the gun barrel further up. Continue 
through the cave and use the catapult to get to the next part of Helvetia.
    
-----------
| STAGE 6 |
-----------

Start off by taking the 10X and the 2X multipliers and grab some helmets. 
Some Romans will try to attack you while you are crossing the bridges. 
After some bridges, on the left side, is a platform which you can jump up 
to and behind that one is a hidden path and what you can find there is no 
less than a ***Golden Laurel***. 

Continue to the path ends and behind the boxes at the end is a lever. Don’t 
stop to fight the Romans because they will still be coming no matter how 
many you defeat. When the lever is down you can see that some bridges up on 
the mountain has been pulled down and you can now go back and use them to 
get higher up. Get over those bridges and use the catapult to get to the 
next part of Helvetia. 

Go forward and contact the spy. He will tell you that a gold laurel has 
been hidden somewhere around just three days ago. He will also tell you 
that you can get a price from him if you collect 1500 helmets or more down 
the slope. Good luck!

The reward is, as you might understand, a ***Golden Laurel***. It’s not 
easy to collect 1500 helmets and it takes some tries to do it. There is a 
shield at the bottom of the slope. If you want to ride down the slope 
several times, just use the catapult to the left. I will now try to guide 
you down the slide.

Start off by taking the 2 line of helmets in the middle and then take left 
and get the 3X multiplier. Push the joystick forward to gain speed and 
slide quickly around the spiky rock because there is a 3X multiplier behind 
it. Now it will appear a couple of lines of blue helmets in the middle. 
Then you slide to the left a collect a new multiplier and then quickly move 
out to the right and when you reach the edge move the joystick as far to 
the left as possible and jump to the platform. On the platform is a new 3X 
multiplier and when you reach the edge you once again jump to get to 
another platform. On this platform is only golden helmets and if you reach 
this platform you have the key for success. Drop down (don’t jump down) and 
collect the line of helmets in the middle and then move to the left and 
collect even another 3X multiplier before your past multipliers have ran 
out. Then you slide to the right and collect a fifth 3X multiplier and 
after the next line of blue helmets you should reach 1500 helmets. 

When you have collected the laurel you can use the catapult with the green 
flag to get to this level’s BOSS!

---> THE BOSS <---

Your objective is, as always, to destroy this giant grenade-throwing 
fortress. You must activate the 3 grey spots by walking on them, but the 
machine will spit out lots of grenades and even impenetrable Roman 
formations. You can only defeat the Roman formations by hitting grenades on 
them. When the area is clear from Romans and the spots are green run up the 
stairs and start shooting with the cannon. Aim for the red light on top of 
the fortress. When you hit it the machine will stop and you must hurry down 
to bash the screws on every side of the machine. Do this a couple of times 
and it will be defeated. If you need more life you can smash the boxes in 
corners.

Push the button on the wall and continue through building and free your 
friends. They tell you that Cacofonix is held prisoner in Egypt and that 
will be your next mission.

** (E) EGYPT (E) **
*******************

6 Stages
8 ***Golden Laurels***


-----------
| STAGE 1 |
-----------

Go forward and grab the helmets and defeat the 2 Romans after the bridge. 
There are some boxes you can smash to the right with some food and helmets. 
There is a large statue straight ahead and there are paths on both sides of 
it. Take the eastern path first. When you have passed the statue you have 
to defeat 70 Romans to advance any further. There is a stone building to 
the right and inside of it is a ***Golden Laurel***. Get yourself out of 
there and kick some Roman butts! 

When all Romans are gone a blue light will appear at the end of the path. 
There is also a locked gate, but you cannot do anything for it at time so 
leave it. Step into the blue light and you will control Obelix. Strike the 
cogwheel with Obelix to send Asterix upwards. You will now control Asterix 
only. At the end of the path is a couple of Romans. Defeat them and grab 
the torch. Jump down and now you are in the area to the left of the statue. 
There are some Romans there, but they are easy to beat because Obelix and 
Dogmatix will team up with you after a couple of seconds. 

Light the torch and quickly run to the rubber band and shoot yourself 
forward. Take to the left and light the fireplace near the stone building 
where you found the first golden laurel in Egypt. Run forward and light the 
dynamite near the locked gateway. A new path is opened. 

Go forward to the large open area and climb the big stairs and on top of 
the last stair is a 3X multiplier. Run down and collect all helmets and to 
the right from the gate you just blew up is a little water hole with 
helmets and boxes containing helmets. Then run back and go right to the 
rubber band and collect the helmets before your 3X multiplier disappears. 
Shoot yourself up the steep hill. You cannot walk up there with out the 
extra speed from the rubber band. On top of that hill is Egypt’s second 
***Golden Laurel***. Now go back to the large open area.

Now you will have to defeat 400(!!!) Roman soldiers to unlock the next part 
of the adventure. You have an unlimited supply of magic potions that might 
help and speed up the bashing by stepping on the grey spots. There are a 
couple of plateaus around the fighting ground that contains helmets and 
multipliers worth over 50 times the normal helmet. That means that this 
place is a gold mine for you to collect a huge amount of helmets. Have fun 
and GOOD LUCK! 

Push the button and continue your adventure. Go through the cave and at the 
end of it you will se 2 boxes to the right. They contain golden helmets. 
When you enter the open area you will have to defeat 50 Romans to continue. 
To the left is a sleeping druid. Wake him up and save if you want to. 

-----------
| STAGE 2 | 
-----------

Defeat the 50 Romans and go inside the cave to the right and grab the 
torch. The boxes contains 6 3X multipliers and some golden helmets. 

Light the explosives and blow the gate. Now you control Obelix. Ignore the 
rock in the middle and jump up to the plateau instead and smash the iron 
boxes up there. Behind those boxes is the third Egyptian ***Golden 
Laurel***. Note: You can only grab the laurel with Obelix and if you decide 
to push the rock before trying to smash the iron boxes, you won’t be able 
to collect it. 

Move the rock and then jump up on it and onto the path. As soon as you jump 
down a lock will appear on a button and you’ll have to defeat 60 more 
Romans to unlock it. This place has multipliers worth 50 times a normal 
helmet too. Another paradise for collecting helmets! When all Romans are 
defeated, push the button and go inside the newly opened door. Now you 
control Asterix only. 

There are to paths here but you can’t climb the left one so you have to go 
to the right. Spiky boulders will roll down the hill but if you just walk 
to the left as much as you can you should be fine. You find a cannon at the 
top, but you can’t move it because Obelix isn’t there. There are 6 3X 
multipliers hidden in the boxes. To the left you can also find the peddler. 

The peddler’s price for a twister combo is 75000 helmets and 150000 for the 
twister fusion combo.

You need to light your torch, but there are 4 Romans around it and you have 
to defeat them before you can light it. This can be a little tricky so my 
advice is to move around and first aim for the Romans with golden helmets. 
It won’t take long before you are dead if you don’t approach carefully. 
There is a shield behind the fire place that might help you too. If you are 
desperate you can always go back and buy some life points or shields from 
the peddler. When the Romans are gone you light the torch and slide down to 
light the dynamite. 

Once again you walk up, but this time you have Obelix by your side and he 
can move the cannon for you. Blast the bricks away and a new path is 
opened. 

A big spiky boulder will roll towards you so you have to run fast and jump 
to the left when you get near it. A big you have. Here you have to defeat 
35 Romans to continue. 

When that is done you take to the left and jump into the blue light. Let 
Obelix strike the cogwheel to make Asterix get to the top. Jump down to the 
other side and you must defeat 3 Romans to unlock the continuing path. It 
might sound simple just to defeat 3 Romans, but these guys are tough ones 
and they stick to each other and that makes it very hard to hit them. Wait 
formation of Romans appears. Wait until the spears are at the middle or the 
top of the formation and then strike the bottom. To the left you find some 
helmets, boxes and multipliers. Grab them and then go to the right. 

A couple of pirates will attack you. Defeat them and continue. Further down 
is a fire place with a torch and a bridge over lava. Grab the torch. If you 
fall down to the lava you will die no matter how much life until their 
striking colour hits red and then punish them one by one. When that is 
done, hit the cogwheel to lower the bridge. Obelix and Dogmatix will then 
team with up with Asterix. There are some 3X multipliers in the boxes 
around. 

Go back to the fireplace and light the torch. When that is done, run 
quickly back and light the fireplace where you defeated the 3 Romans. Run 
to the left, but a giant spiky boulder will roll towards you. Go back a 
little and wait it out, then run forward and blow out the dynamite. Go in 
and hit the sleeping druid and save.         

-----------
| STAGE 3 | 
-----------

Collect the helmets and smash the boxes. Then walk to the left and jump up 
the stairs and place Asterix on the cableway. The cableway ends on an 
elevator and you have to defeat all enemies on that elevator to make it go 
up. When you are up, light the torch on the fireplace and blow the gate by 
igniting the dynamite. 

Move Obelix to the giant block and let him push it away. Continue just a 
little bit and the spy will appear. He says you will have to use a 
telescopic bridge that only Romans can use. He also says “Don’t think twice 
of hitting hard” and that is not a joke. It’s quite hard and it will take 
some time to defeat 83 enemies. If you walk over the grey spot a hatch will 
open and if one or more enemies fall down you will be rewarded by some 
helmets. When every enemy is defeated you can go to the left side of the 
hatch and smash some iron boxes that contains 7 3X multipliers. To the 
right you have a 10X multiplier, but it is located at the end of the path 
and if you don’t know that the 10X is there you will grab all helmets 
before taking the multiplier. Collect all helmets you can see and move out 
on the beach and there you will talk to the spy. The spy opens up the 
telescopic bridge for you. Cross the bridge and collect the helmets and 
smash the boxes. Use the catapult.  

Now you can use the boat, but first you should swim around the island to 
collect helmets and in a cave at the left side of the boat is a ***Golden 
Laurel***. There are a lot of boxes there and they contain helmets and 7 3X 
multipliers. Some pirates will attack you, but you should easily show them 
who’s in charge. Now use the boat. 

This is yet another excellent opportunity to extend your helm collection, 
but it is hard. It goes very fast, but you can slow down the speed in 
favour of the steering accuracy. You can ride how many times you want, just 
go back into the boat and press A. When you are satisfied you can ride the 
boat to the island and use the catapult to get to the next area. On the 
monument on the middle of the island is some helmets and at the top some 3X 
multipliers. Use the catapult and then walk straight ahead and save. 

-----------
| STAGE 4 |
-----------

The first that happens after you have saved is that 40 Romans has to be 
smashed. When that is done the fireplace will be unlocked. Grab the torch 
near it. If you go upwards you can collect a line of blue helmets and 
further in is some wild boars and a shield. Go back and smash the boxes on 
the right side first because they contain 4 3X multipliers and then smash 
the boxes on the other side. Run down and collect as many helmets as you 
can. Then go back and light your torch and then run as fast as possible to 
the fireplace near the locked gate and light it. 

Move the building near the fireplace by going at the front or the back of 
it and press and hold the A button to move it. Move it near as far up as 
possible. Now you have to move really fast. Run down and light your torch 
and then back and jump up on the plateau and finally use the building as a 
bridge to make it to the other side. Light the fireplace on the other side.

Collect the helmets and then jump down and deal with the Romans around the 
dynamite. When they are defeated, run back and light the torch to blow the 
dynamite. The giant boulder will roll down and destroy the gate. Use the 
cannon on the right side to blast the iron boxes away. Continue the path in 
the cave. The spy will talk to you further in and he tells you that a 
golden laurel was stashed inside the cave less than 3 days ago and that you 
must find it. Inside the cave you have to defeat 90 Romans.

You have to defeat 18 strong defence Romans before it lightens up a bit. 
When all 80 are defeated the cogwheel is unlocked. Smash the cogwheel to 
lower the bridge. Once you are on the other side you will have to defeat 
another 80 enemies. You can go to a room to the right if you are running 
out of life because there are 2 wild boars and some life points in boxes 
there. When the enemies are defeated you do just as before. There are also 
4 3X multipliers in the boxes. 

To get the golden laurel as the spy talked about you have to find and push 
4 buttons and then walk over the grey spot between the bridges. The first 
button is to the right of the first bridge. Jump on the iron boxes to get 
there. The second is to the right after the first bridge. Jump also on iron 
boxes here to get to the button. The third button is located in the room 
where the wild boars are. To the right you find a big pile of boxes and 
behind those is the button. Jump up and push the button. The last button is 
located after the second bridge on the left side. You can only see the 
button from the bridge. You will have to be very careful when you jump over 
the edge. If you fall down to the lava you will have to start over again. 
When all 4 buttons are green you go to the grey spot and collect the 
***Golden Laurel***.
 
Pass the second bridge and continue the path. Some Romans will attack you, 
but they are easily routed. In the boxes are some 3X multipliers. Move up 
and once again talk to the spy. He wants you to clean up the area to the 
last enemy so he can open the door for you. Grab the cannon to the left and 
start the punishing. It won’t take long to defeat the 3 formations and 
after that you must defeat further 200 enemies, but with the cannon in use 
it won’t be a problem. 

When all enemies are defeated you can collect a shield and some helmets at 
the left path where you found the cannon. Talk to the spy and he will open 
the door for you. Follow the path and further in does a pile of boxes 
contain 4 3X multipliers. Collect all the helmets and move to the large 
open area. Here you must defeat 47 Romans. When that is done, collect all 
helmets and move up (to the left side from where you came in first). 

Here are a couple of flying Romans and they will throw grenades at you. 
Jump up and hit them. When all flying Romans are defeated you smash the 
cogwheel to lower the bridge. Cross the bridge. A pyramid formation is 
trying to stop you. To defeat it wait until the spears disappears and then 
smash them to heaven. Jump down and you will be located on an elevator. You 
must defeat every single Roman to make it to the next elevator and you must 
jump between every one. When you get up on the ground you will face another 
2 formations. Defeat them as you did before. You can use the catapult if 
you want to get to the other side again.

Go forward and smash the boxes and collect the shield on top of them. 
Behind those is also the peddler. Move the grey block and go back to the 
rubber band and grab the torch. Light it and use the rubber band to move 
faster. To the right of the block is dynamite which you should blow up with 
your torch. Move the block as much as you can and jump up on it and to the 
roof. Jump up and when you reach the grass and water, turn around and move 
the edge. To the right you can see a laurel. Jump down and climb the boxes 
to collect the sixth ***Golden Laurel*** in Egypt. Go back to the grass and 
water and continue that path and after a while you will reach some golden 
helmets and a saving point. 

-----------
| STAGE 5 |
-----------

Go forward and talk to the spy. Once again you are going to slide your way 
down and collect 1500 helmets for a prize. If you don’t success at the 
first try just use the catapult at the left when you are down. When you 
have collected 1500 helmets the spy will give you a ***Golden Laurel***. 
Defeat the Romans in the area before you do anything else. 

When that is done you go back to the finish line of the slope. On the wall 
to the right is a button, push it. You must push 3 other buttons too and 
the second one is located at the north east corner. The third button is 
hidden behind some boxes to the left of the second button and finally 
button 4 is located on the backside of the catapult. When every button is 
pressed you walk to the grey (above button 1) spot for a reward.    

Walk into the cave and defeat the pirate in there. In the boxes to the 
right is some 3X multipliers. Continue the walk and you will eventually 
talk to the spy again and he tells you that a friend of his no something 
about a Gaulish prisoner. Grab the torch and move forward. You will now 
have to defeat 200 Romans. When everyone are defeated you can light the 
torch and then blow up the dynamite, but there are more things to do first. 
You have a lot of multipliers in the boxes and on top of the boxes and you 
can also get free life points if you are standing on the grey spot to the 
left for a couple of seconds. Inside the western temple you can find 2 more 
grey spots, but they contain helmets if you walk across them at right 
moment. That takes time and you won’t get enough helmets to make it worth 
the time so I suggest you skip it. Move out through the path you unlocked 
and there you have to defeat another 6 enemies. 

To the left in that room is a lot of boxes and behind those is the last 
***Golden Laurel*** in Egypt. Go back and bash the cogwheel to lower the 
bridge. Go to the left and save. 

-----------
| STAGE 6 |
-----------

Go to the left and use Obelix to jump on the white board to bounce up. Pull 
the lever down and help Asterix and Dogmatix up. Up there is a mini boss. 
You must break the boss’s arms by smashing them and the magic potion makes 
everything much easier. You have some shields there too in case your health 
is bad. When the arms are gone just smash the body apart too and a 
fireplace will appear. Light the torch and ignite the dynamite. Go inside 
and use the catapult to get to the roof. There you can find a boar and some 
boxes. Use the catapult to get to the boss. 

---> The Boss <---

This boss works as the others, but now there is lava and some crazy Roman 
soldiers whom will try to stop you. Ignore the soldiers and pull the 3 
levers down so that they are showing green light. Then jump up carefully 
and use the cannon to hit the red tower on the fortress. When it is hit you 
jump down and smash the red screws on the machine. Repeat that until every 
screw is gone. Never stop to attack the soldiers, jump over them and my 
advice is to start remove the screws at the back because the attacks are 
intensified when it has been hit a couple of times. 

Collect all the helmets and push the button on the wall. Walk down and 
follow the noise and you will find Cacofonix. He tells you that 
Vitalstatistix has been moved to Rome. Your last assignment is about to 
come.


******************
** (F) ROME (F) **
******************

2 Stages
3 ***Golden Laurels***

-----------
| STAGE 1 |
-----------

The spy welcomes you to Rome and he tells you that it won’t be easy to free 
Vitalstatistix. Move forward and now you have to defeat 1000 Romans!!! I 
recommend you to have all combos in hand or at least the “twister fusion” 
combo. If you don’t have that combo I suggest you to go back to other 
levels and collect more helmets so that you can buy a “twister fusion 
combo”. Before you get a combo you can smash the boxes to get some 
multipliers. When all of them are defeated you smash the cogwheel to lower 
the bridge. Jump up and smash all boxes you see.

Go left and smash the boxes in there to get some shields, helmets and 
multipliers. The cogwheel in there is no ordinary cogwheel, it is a lottery 
wheel. There are 4 red lights in front of the wheel and when you smash it, 
the lights are changing to green colour. When the wheel has stopped the 
lights will stop too and if it stops too the left you will get a ***Golden 
Laurel***, the second to the left and you will get some golden helmets, the 
third from the left and you will get blue helmets and the fourth from the 
left and you will get a shield. You can find the peddler here too and shop 
before facing Caesar.   

Go back and move forward through the giant gate to the stadium. You will 
see Caesar himself far away. You can’t reach him yet tough you have to 
solve a lot of problems first. The first problem is 200 Romans to defeat. 
The next problem is to find and press a couple of buttons. The first button 
is to the right from where you came in and the second one is to the right 
from the stairs hidden behind some boxes and to get to the next room you 
will have to push the button on the left side. Move in and you will have to 
defeat 200 Romans. There are magic potions and multipliers all over the 
place. Activate the lights on the wall by stepping on the grey spots in 2 
of the corners. Push the button on the wall when every Roman has been 
defeated. 

Move into the next room. Here you must defeat another 400 Romans to unlock 
the gate to the next room. You can choose to smash the soldiers to get your 
combo metre up, but you can also choose to smash the formations even though 
it’s harder. Use the combos to do the “hard” work. 

In the next room you will have to defeat 1500 Romans!!! This is actually 
easier than the previous room because you don’t run out of enemies that 
pushes up you combo-metre. Push the button when every enemy is defeated and 
enter the streets of Rome. 

Caesar says that it isn’t over yet, but he leaves Vitalstatistix for you to 
free. Caesar’s quickly leaves and Asterix and Obelix talks to 
Vitalstatistix. He says he won’t leave without his shield and porters. To 
the right of the stairs is a button, push it and go back to the stadium 
entrance. Walk over the grey spot and if every light is showing green then 
you should receive a ***Golden Laurel***. Now, go after Caesar! 


Smash the boxes and collect the helmets. Continue the path and it won’t 
take long until some Roman soldiers attack you, but they are few and won’t 
cause you any trouble. Smash the boxes from the upper side first to get 5 
3X multiplier, then collect the helmets and smash the rest of the boxes. 
Next you will arrive to a very large stair with lava on the right side.

Defeat the Romans downstairs and collect all the helmets and multipliers. 
On the west side of the stairs is some water and 3 piles of boxes. Smash 
the left pile until it is 3 boxes left in the pile and then jump up on it. 
On the wall is a button, jump to it and push it. If you manage to push the 
button an elevator will move you up. To the right is a 3X multiplier hidden 
behind the boxes. Take it and smash everything you see. In the next room 
some lions will attack you. Defeat them and smash the boxes inside. Behind 
all boxes is the last ***Golden Laurel*** in the game. After you have 
collected everything, go back and up the stairs to save. 

-----------
| STAGE 2 |
-----------

You have 3 3X multipliers behind the druid. To the right is the spy and he 
says this is the last battle against Caesar’s brutal war machines. Smash 
the boxes and collect the shields, then push the button on the wall to open 
the gate.

---> The Last Boss <---

Caesar himself will control the 2 machines in there. To the left is a 
cableway for Asterix. When Asterix is on, grab the rope under it with 
Obelix and move Asterix to the other side. Grenades will fly around you and 
try to move all the time. When you reach the other side, smash the cogwheel 
with Asterix and move up to the bridge you just lowered. From the bridge 
you can jump and land on the big red button on top of the machine. When you 
land on the button, the machine’s arms will come out. Quickly move Obelix 
inside the arms and smash the red screws. When both screws are gone the arm 
will fall off. When both machine’ arms has fallen off they will blow up. I 
recommend finishing them of one at the time. 

After the machine-destruction you can push the button to open the door in 
the middle of the lava field. The rest is up to you to discover...


(If you need more helmets, the best place to collect a lot of them is at 
the end of stage 1 in Egypt.)

-------------------------------
What you do with the laurels...
-------------------------------

When you have collected all golden laurels available in a level you will be 
able to change the clothes for Asterix and Obelix. For example, in Normandy 
the amount of golden laurels is 12 and only after you have collected all 12 
laurels for that level you will be able to unlock the clothes. You will 
find these clothes in the menu “EXTRA”.



^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
##############################
## (X) Extra & Gallery (X) ##
##############################

When you have reached Normandy you can watch different clothes that Asterix 
and Obelix are wearing. You can only reach this menu from the Great Map! 
This option is called ‘EXTRA’. If you change the clothes for Asterix & 
Obelix, they will wear them in the adventure. This is where the golden 
laurels are used. If you haven’t collected every laurel on each adventure 
all suits won’t be unlocked.   

You can find the Gallery in the same menu. In this menu you buy pieces of 
paintings. If you have a lot of numbers of helmets left, this is a great 
way to spend them. You can buy several pieces and there are many paintings 
to choose among. To buy all paintings you must play a lot.
