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!

*sigh* a true bullet hell game. At least the had finally changed the color of the projectiles if not expanded the field of view. Not nearly as unbalanced and pointless as it's previous versions.

Feels a bit lonely... but an over all good game!

I really like this game, I love building tanks and evolving them gradually, seeing them get stronger over time. It's quite a peaceful, relaxing game.

I am very disappointed that you can't save a game. Sadly, "used saved avatars from a previous game" only works for a day or two after playing a game before it becomes greyed out (adobe flash player settings set to unlimited local storage, cookies enabled and never deleted) and only lets you use the last tank you were on, but doesn't let you pick up from where you left off. This might be fine if it were a short game but it isn't short, and I don't honestly know anyone who has the time to play this to the end in a single sitting.

If this game had a save feature or if you could keep your "used saved avatars from a previous game" setting for a longer amount of time I'd give this a 5 for sure.

Always a pleasure to play the bubble tanks series. There appears to be at least one bug in the tank edit screen.
- Let's say I've used 22 out of 25 tank points in the placement of items on the tank.
- One of the units already on the tank is worth 4 tank points.
- I am unable to move that item around because the "not enough points" error screen comes up.

I suspect that the mouse release function includes a call to another method that checks the gun points for initial placement., but it doesn't seem like it took the different case scenarios (two that I can see) for placement were taken into account.

Still enjoyed it though. Just thought I would point that bug out for future improvement!
