Game Tie-in[edit | edit source]

From 1990-1993 a tie-in game titled Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends was developed by Peakstar Software and published by THQ that released on multiple platforms, most notably on the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo. The game had the player control Thomas around the Island of Sodor to help with various tasks like delivering medical supplies to the hospital, solving various puzzles and racing other engines' friends.

NES Post[edit | edit source]

An NES port was also developed and complete but was cancelled for unknown reasons.[1] The port is similar to the other releases with a lack of speech and a new 8-bit soundtrack. The game wasn't rediscovered until a prototype was found in 2014 and uploaded online by an anonymous user.
