zat's Thoughts:

In this book, you play Justforkix, and your father has been arrested for trafficking in counterfeit menhirs, so you have to reach Julius Caesar and reveal the real culprit (being diverted by, say, being in a chariot race here and there). A fairly basic idea. Some of the endings seem pointless (such as slipping on a bar of soap to your death). This book is not terribly difficult and can be finished fairly quickly. Illustrations from the Asterix books are reused, which means that they are used to represent different characters than in the original books, which is kind of annoying. All in all, a fairly good book, but not for someone who wants a challenge.
