"I'm awesome!"

Awesome Possum... Kicks Dr. Machino's Butt is a 1993 platformer by Tengen for the Sega Genesis. You play as the titular possum, fighting against Dr. Machino and his robot army as they despoil the environment. This is not all he fights against; in addition to robots and traps, he must struggle with slippery controls, clipping issues, slowdown, poor hit detection, sloppy level design, and voice samples that insist on reminding the player that Awesome Possum has 'tude.

This game was created during the Mascot with Attitude boom following Sonic the Hedgehog.

Compare to Konami's Rocket Knight Adventures series, which was another video game with a mascot opossum for the Sega Genesis, coincidentally released the same year as Awesome Possum (but predating it by two months) and held in much better esteem.
