Try this challenging bubbles shooter game to train your concentration. It's Bubble Tanks 3! This game is part of the free online brain games collection.
To begin, click the Small, Medium, or Large button under the picture of the game. This opens the game in a pop-up window.
Start with a tiny bubble tank. Defeat bubble enemies and grow your tank in size and power. The longer you play the game, the bigger and more powerful your bubble tank can become.
Note: These instructions were written for the previous version. The new version should be similar.
After the game loads, click the Click to Play button to begin. This loads the Bubble Tanks 3 main screen.
To start playing, click the triangle-shaped start button. For other options, see below.
HOW TO PLAY. Use the WASD keys to move your bubble tank. Use your mouse to aim. Hold the left mouse button down to shoot. Press the Spacebar for second fire.
Destroy enemy bubble tanks by shooting them. Steal their bubbles and grow!
Receiving damage from enemy weapons will weaken your tank. If you are hit and you have no bubbles collected, you'll be automatically ejected to the safest adjacent bubble field.
Sometimes the best course is to simply run!
The overall battlefield consists of individual bubble fields. Each of these is a different level of difficulty.
To move from one bubble field to another, simply press the WASD keys until you move from one big bubble to another.
The farther away you go from your starting bubble field, the harder the enemies become.
PAUSE. Press the P key to pause the bubble game. This opens the Game Paused screen.
On the pause screen are three useful tabs - Stats, Map, and Options.
Stats tab - displays stats including your current tank, primary weapon, enemies killed, and bubbles collected.
Map tab - shows a diagram of the bubble fields you have visited.
Options tab - same as the Settings screen (see below).
