TTA Episode 073: Tainted Heart

~The TTA Season 3 Finale, a full-length 30-minute flash movie! Check out the official website to see the bloopers, trailer, art gallery and plenty more!~

Part 4 of the 4-part Season 3 finale! At long last, our heroes make it to the heart of TOME's system, where Motherboard, the living A.I. of the virtual world, lies dormant, infected to the brim by the D-Bug's purple flames...Alpha, Zetto and Ruri stand tall to cleanse her of her infection and prevent the deaths of many innocent lives playing the game at this very moment. Kirbopher and the rest of Alpha's team discover a strange secret underground, and are given an unexpected visit from someone...and the members of the Purple Flame may not be out of the game just yet, unless the Ranks of Sanctuary step in! The most important battle yet is at hand, and it's one that Ultimate Creature II can NOT win alone! Check out the incredible conclusion to Season 3 of TTA!



this is a great flash. there is nothing else like it. i understand that you want to go on to "bigger and better things" but i assure you, this is not just "sprite characters moving round a battle grid and launching pixelised perjectiles" as you say it is. it IS the biggests and best thing there is. NOTHING will stop people like me from wanting it to come back, at least to patch up all the mysteries the story still holds. like the characters in the season 4 into, or the Egyptian Horus guy who sent that moderater the message, or even the fate of gamecrazed and Motherboard. In conclusion, TTA will NEVER be forgotten.

this is the best series ever i think u should make season 4 man


after re-watching the series so much, i am glad to say that you have so greatly honoured us with placing this series on new grounds. i enjoyed watching how the scenary, text, pearsonalyties and what not change as the series continued. and i agree with Galazor, this should be a collection. for it's just far to great to not be. and i hope one day, i can see this on tv. lol

overall the best series on newgrounds

Reminded me of what little ive seen of .hack, yet its unique so i wouldnt consider calling it a clone. The ending could have been better, but personaly i was ok with it.

Voice acting was surpirsingly well, as were the fight scenes. Had this been done in a professional manner it would definately be television worthy.
Keep up the good work Kirb.


Oh My God. This is the most amazing series I have seen. This is better than Most of the animes I have read and seen. You have amazed a future critic and have set the bar at such a high point that only you will ever be able to meet or beat. If you make an epilogue or another series similer to this then I would love to be informned. Congrats on makeing one of the most sucseesfull series in my history book(if that counts for anything).
