Thunderbirds by Grandslam (not to be mistaken with
version) is an arcade adventure game based on Gerry
Anderson's famous puppet TV show.
game is split into four parts where you get to choose
two items for each of the two characters that take part
in each of the game sections. Each level has quite a few
screens to explore, where the puzzles are pretty logical
- it's usually a case of picking up a certain item and
activating it at a certain place.
Graphically it is very colourful, but the sprites are
quite blocky and ugly at times.
it's a decent title that should keep you busy for quite
The ending scroller
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I played a cracked version that allowed me to tackle the
final section with infinite time.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
After solving many puzzles, you ultimately find the
piece of film and pick it up which completes the game. A
scrolling message appears on the top panel which
confirms that you have beaten the game and all parts
have been completed.
