Fly the friendly skies and save the world while you're at it.
- Play as Alan Tracy, Fermat and Tin Tin
- Pilot the Thunderbirds vehicles
- Nine levels
Based on the movie which is based on the 1960s puppet-based TV series (!) and directed by Star Trek: Next Generation alumnus Jonathan Frakes, Thunderbirds puts you in the cockpit for the famous fighting force.
Master criminal The Hood has escaped from captivity and threatens to take over the world. When the world needs saving, it calls on the International Rescue team to right the wrongs.
In this 3/4-view adventure, you play as Alan, Fermat and Tin Tin, members of the International Rescue crew. You'll use the trio's abilities to solve a series of puzzles. At other times, your mission takes you into one of the Thunderbirds.
When solving puzzles, Alan, Fermat and Tin Tin must navigate levels filled with obstacles. Alan can pull or push giant crates, Fermat crawls through vents and Tin Tin uses telekinesis to move small objects. In the flight sequences, you look down on the plane as it flies over all kinds of terrain, shooting missiles and avoiding birds that want to share its airspace. Your adventures even take you into space.
The action isn't overly exciting, but the puzzles will put a little challenge in front of you.
