Asterix: Operation Getafix / Aster & the Big Fight
Was just taking some screenshots of this game and noticed that if you wait for the title screen to finish it actually displays "And the Big Fight"
Think it should be added to HOL as another name for it?
I'm totally gratified that people find Interceptor worthy of being downloaded and played after so many years especially in light of its rather rudimentary visual content by standards constantly increasing over time.

"Operation Getafix" was the title of the move that was based on the comic "The Big Fight" (thank you Wiki )
Your turn now

First there were two Astérix comics:
Asterix and the Big Fight (Le Combat des chefs) and Asterix and the Soothsayer (Le Devin).
It seems like when they decided to make a new movie, they merged scenarios of both (and probably changed/added a few things). The movie was called Asterix and the Big Fight (Astérix et le Coup du menhir).
They also made a comics adaptation of the movie (a special issue, non-canon), called Astérix et le Coup du menhir in French-speaking country, like the movie, but it seems like they decided to call this special issue as Operation Getafix.
- if the game was programmed in English by Cocktel, they might have decided to originally tie it with the movie but later decided to link to the comic book.
- more probably in my opinion, Cocktel programmed in French and when the translator(s) worked on it, they had diverging pieces of information.
I'll try this week-end to play the French version (supposing a dump is available) to see what happens.
As for adding an alternative name, as I can't remember a similar case, I think I will leave the top team decide. It might even be worth a name change if in-game the only name given to the game is Asterix and the Big Fight, even if all the other elements (box, disks) mention Operation Getafix.
