Thomas the Tank Engine was a Sega Genesis/Mega Drive video game developed by Malibu Interactive and THQ Software in 1993. Players could pick between five engines: Thomas, Toby, Duck, James, and Percy. They could also colour in the trains and give the engineer a name. It had three different skill levels for three levels; Game, Race, and Explore
The original Thomas title music is played at the title screen. This game featured music from Season 1, Season 2, and Season 3. Various sound effects include a whistle, puffing, breaking, different tones of a selection 'ding', a 'fill' effect while colouring the engines.
All text is spoken by a male voice.
Starting the Game
The player must pick an engine from Thomas, Toby, Duck, James, or Percy. The player can start straight away with Thomas, or colour-in the engines. In the colouring-in, they can choose what colour their engineer's clothes are by colouring them in in the picture, as shown in James' screen shot below.
There is an opportunity to name the engineer after the player's own name, or pick from some of the names provided. Some of these include: Amy, Bill, Carlos, Dan, Elizabeth, Jasmine, Kevin, Laura, Maria, Sam, and Tim.
You must also select a skill level of Easy, Medium or Hard.
To find the correct rolling stock and take them to the designated station. Once complete, the Fat Controller will make a comment on speed and memory, and a score will be tallied.
Stations include Cronk, Barrow, Crewe, Knapford and Dryaw.
To get the finish before the other engine
The chance to explore the maps from 'Game' without a timer.
