Thunderbirds Are Go - A high-speed chase game

It is our privilege to develop another web game for Thunderbirds Are Go, in collaboration with ITV. Thunderbirds Are Go! is a remake of the original British sci-fi series, Thunderbirds, with the Tracy brothers as main characters. The current TV show highlights their amazing missions for International Rescue and is produced using both scale model miniature effects and CGI.

The International Rescue team carries out their tasks in record-breaking time with the use of Thunderbirds vehicles with cutting-edge technology. Also part of the team are Lady Penelope, a socialite secret agent and her bodyguard-driver, Parker. They carry out covert criminal investigations but are also usually involved in high-speed chases using FAB 1, a customized Rolls-Royce, specially equipped with weapons and defensive countermeasures.

Our team was tasked to develop a game inspired by the exploits of FAB 1 and make the players feel the adrenaline rush and excitement of being in control of the vehicle.

The classic FAB 1 in the 1960s original sci-fi TV series Thunderbirds.

Here’s a clip from the new season where Lady Penelope and Parker are involved in a high-speed chase with villains on motorbikes.

Steering FAB 1 involves simple controls with just clicks and taps, but requires agility and quick thinking to avoid crashing into oncoming motorbikes.

Play button to start the game with Fab 1 and the motorbikes facing opposite directions.

Objective is to complete as many laps as possible, while making sure not to crash against the motorbikes. It also involves careful maneuvering to avoid obstacles on the road.

Background changes into different seasons. Here it’s autumn.

Game comes to a halt when FAB 1 crashes into a motorbike. Stats are shown at the end, detailing the player’s top 3 scores.


Using HTML5, one-time coding is all that’s needed for the game to be accessed on smartphones, tablets, iPads and desktop PCs, using different operating systems. High-quality audio-visual elements can easily be incorporated to give it the overall feel of the Thunderbirds series, staying true to the effects and musical score of the show. As such, the game can easily be integrated into the Thunderbirds website.


This challenging game helps the players to think ahead and develop alertness, much like the traits of our Thunderbirds characters. FAB 1 Escape can be played anytime on their website. There is no need to download and install any software, just click on the play button and it’s good to go!
