I remember buying this for £2.99 way back in 1985.

As I'm sure you are aware,
Thunderbirds by Firebird is a game of the popular
sixties TV show by Gerry Anderson, which follows the
lives of the International Rescue team and their
adventures. In this game you control the Thunderbirds 1
and 2 through a maze of Egyptian caverns and tunnels to
rescue the trapped Egyptologists. This game is a tough
old cookie and requires a steady hand and a bit of brain
power to work out the puzzle sequences.
I spent ages playing this
game back on the day and trying me best to see every
but I never managed to get to see the end... until now...
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I don't actually know how David completed this game but
I am betting that a cheat was involved :)
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: You enter the final screen and
exit on the right. A message, 'CONGRATULATIONS. YOU
HAVE PASSED THE TEST' is displayed.
- Vinny: HUH?!?
Is THAT it? I played this game for AGES when it first
came out as I expected some more speech at the end of
the game. Needless to say that I am happy that David
completed it as I would have been SERIOUSLY pissed off
to have played it through and seen this shite!
FINAL SAY: Another
one to add to the WORST ENDINGS EVER list! :(
