    Default Awesome Possum

    Tengen, A subsidiary of Atari games, was never known from making very good games. While they had some successful games on the NES, They never really got too far. After Sonic's debut, many companies thought that the best way to sales was to make their own platform mascot game. That led to many sub par titles, such as Aero the Acro-Bat and Zool. Where does Awesome Possum stand? Well.... don't get your hopes up.

    Can't believe they tried to turn a possum into a lovable mascot. I found one dying in the backyard last week and it looked like a giant disgusting rat.

    Totally disagree with this. Tengen released some fantastic games on the Megadrive such as Pit-Fighter, Klax, Rampart, Dragons Fury / Revenge and Ms. Pacman.
    To be this good takes AGES, to be this good takes SEGA!

    Road Blasters, Robo Aleste, Grindstormer, Gauntlet IV? I believe Slap Fight reviewed at a 10 here as well.

    But you think Rocket Knight's cool?

    @ topic = Awesome Possum is every bit as good as its name. The worst part is when people lump Sonic or Mario in with this kind of dreck because "they're all mascot platformers". Awesome Possum belongs with Alex Kidd and Wild Woody.

    I can't comment on the rest of those, but Robo Aleste was only published in the U.S. by Tengen. They didn't have anything to do with its development; that's all Compile.

    Mrs. Pac-Man was an amazing port/game, for what it's worth. Possum did suck butt.
