The year is 2063, the place is a small remote island in the centre of the Pacific Ocean. Not very much happens here, nothing that is until the cry 'calling International Rescue' goes up, because tucked away in the middle of this island is the Tracy residence. Jeff Tracy, ex-astronaut and retired industralist is the boss man behind the world's top global rescue team, aided by his sons Scott, Virgil, Alan, Gordon and John.
The Games Machine (UK)
Although not as colourful as the 16-Bit games, the Speccy version avoids colour clash admirably and plays just as well.
It's the boys in blue! No, not the rozzers, the Traceys. They're probably the most famous puppets in the world. But not content with having a starring role on their own TV show, T-Shirts, magazines, records and badges, those F.A.B. boys of Thunderbirds fame have gone and done the only thing left for them to do – got themselves the lead in their very own computer game.

Not surprisingly the graphics are monochrome but as with most games now hold their own well enough. My only real complaint about the Spectrum version is the price tag, even though it does come supplied with an audio tape.

The same gameplay as 16 bit versions, with a cassette multiload. Still good fun though.
