Asterix packs the punches on smartphones and tablets [iOS]

Paris – July 15, 2013  Asterix is the French comic series that has been translated into 111 languages and dialects and sold 350 million copies worldwide. But, in addition to the success generated by these indomitable Gauls in comic form, their adventures have been successfully replicated in all media formats: cartoons, movies, branding and videogames.

It is with the intention of continuing this success that Editions Albert René and games publisher and developer BulkyPix are pleased to announce the release on July 25 of Asterix: Megaslap.

One swallow of magic potion and all hell breaks loose! Send your Roman as far away as possible, outside the Gaul village, even outside the borders of Gaul, going via Rome or even Egypt. If the potion isn’t enough to do the trick, you have a whole paraphernalia available to customize your Roman: cloak, helmet, bouncing cushion, lightning, and you can even throw a menhir at him. So, take a good run-up and give that Roman a hard punch, as he’s asking for it and that’s what he’s there for! Your objective is to send him as far away as possible in record time. Take the opportunity to challenge your friends in real time. There will be plenty of punches dished out, that’s for sure. And that will make the Romans happy. After all, they were told to enlist. But maybe they’re going to regret it this time.

Asterix: Megaslap, a game that will knock you out!
