Impossamole is a platform game developed by Core Design for the Amiga, Atari ST, Commodore 64, Amstrad CPC and ZX Spectrum. It was released in 1990 and published by Gremlin Graphics. NEC Interchannel published it on TurboGrafx-16 the following year.

This game is similar to Rick Dangerous 2, another Core Design game. It features the cape-clad superhero Monty Mole who is recruited by aliens to retrieve their sacred scrolls. As in RD2, the first four levels may be played in any order. Completing these four levels (the Orient, Klondike mines, Ice and Amazon forest) unlocks the fifth and final level. Notice the similarity with RD2 in terms of level themes.

A platform game, the player progresses horizontally as well as climbing up ladders. Monty Mole is equipped with weapons and is able to do a flying kick to defend himself against enemy creatures lurking about.
