The graphics are by no means great, but they are fairly good. Asterix and Obelix look OK, as well as the rest of the sprites which consist of Roman soldiers, centurions as well as barbarians and animals. The backgrounds, although not outstanding, are well-drawn and colorful. All in all, the graphics are simply OK. Asterix and the Great Rescue music is fun to listen to while playing. There are various tracks for the whole game.
