Awesome Possum trying to answer a question about the environment.

Awesome Possum Kicks Dr. Machino's Butt! is a side-scrolling Sonic the Hedgehog inspired game released in 1993 on the Sega Genesis/MegaDrive. Like Sonic, Awesome Possum consisted of fast side scrolling levels, an anthropomorphic main character and a mad scientist as the antagonist. The game featured a large amount of digitized speech.

The game features a strong environmentalist message. Awesome Possum collects recyclable materials including cans and bottles, the main enemies in the game are evil robots who are destroying the rainforest, and the main villain is Dr. Machino, whose goal is to destroy the Earth by way of pollution. Additionally, Awesome Possum features quizzes about the environment that the player can answer for extra points.
