Bubble Tanks 1 was designed around some simple concepts: make a game that 1) allowed you to grow, 2) explore and constantly experience new things, and 3) choose your difficulty as you play by deciding how far out you want to go. Bubble Tanks 3 is the completion of that vision- New tanks will stream into your game seamlessly in the background creating a new experience and adventure each and every game.

I can't begin to tell you how much blood and sweat went into this game, but I can sum it up best with a story about our team member Jason. This past Sunday Jason was driving 2 hours from his girlfriend's place to come in to work. Michigan is very cold, and his truck hit a patch of ice and he rolled the truck over. He was upside down for 10 minutes until the police and medics could cut him out of his truck. He was alright, no scratches or bruises somehow, so when the medic asked him where to drop him off, instead of the hospital he said "Hero Interactive so I can work on Bubble Tanks!" I tell you this for two reasons: 1) God saved Jason so he could bring you this game. 2) That's how hard we ALL worked on it.

We hope you all enjoy it!

This is an excellent game. however, when I come up against some of the bigger enemies it lags to the point of being unplayable even on the lowest settings. and it's not my computer. I can run some high end games on this thing with little trouble. please fix it!

Streamline this shit, yo

Honestly, it's unplayable after only a few minutes. I'm not gonna lie, my current computer isn't anywhere near top of the line (Thinkpad T60p, 2 ghz processor, 1 gb ram, factory graphics card), but a flash game should never be this demanding. This computer can actually handle 3D games (albeit, at the lower settings), and has never, and I mean NEVER, consistently lagged during a flash game as much as it does here. Sometimes a little tweaking is necessary to make the flash enjoyable, but even after using the absolute lowest settings, doing a bit of troubleshooting, and then just trying to just deal with it, I still can't enjoy the game. I've loved the prequels (though the series is in general pretty repetitive, it's fun), and this one looked even more deep and entertaining, but I can't play at 5 fps (trust me, I tried).

As others have mentioned, the healing rays are definitely a major culprit (perhaps the low quality setting could actually replace them with an entirely different graphic as opposed to simply... lowering the quality... of the existing one), but it's possible they aren't the only factor (A few times, I entered a bubble to meet 10 seconds of 5 fps gameplay, and I didn't actually see any rays. Of course, at 5 fps, they wouldn't be hard to miss.).

It seems you've put a whole lot of work into this flash, so I don't doubt you guys will at least attempt to fix the problem. Even if only "shitty" computers are having problems (though my laptop isn't too great, I think it's safe to say that it's at least close to the average newgrounds user's computer), clearly a lot of people who would otherwise thoroughly enjoy the game are plagued with this same issue. It does say it's updated "daily," but I'll probably check back in a week or two.

Regardless, thanks.
