Under rating threshold (show) This game is amazing, really improves your typing skills! I have an idea for the game too, What if you could string together words to make simple sentences to get extra points? For example: This dog is fun = 90+ points, what do you think?

Under rating threshold (show) Enjoyed it for the most of it, but feel that the letters can be hard to read and they are a little small... perhaps a wider font could be helpful. the music was not too obtrusive and I enjoyed that it was a straightforward typing game with no frills. also I love the graphics! that being said I feel there could be more variety in terms of the targets and it would be nice to see different rules for gameplay after the initial levels - that would keep me coming back to play :)

Under rating threshold (show) a good way to stop from hitting a wrong key and losing track of who you are shooting at is to allow the use of the backspace key to deselect your target

Under rating threshold (show) It's good, until too many targets are on the screen at once and it when you hit a letter, it autoselects the wrong one and you end up losing.

Under rating threshold (show) Exceptional. Feels great when you hit each keystroke, and great music to seal the deal. Was extremely fun of maybe first 30 rounds of normal mode, but more ship types could be looked into? Maybe I just haven't gotten far enough to see all the ship types, but I had felt like the scatterships (as I call them) were the last tier. More ships please? Other than that, this was an AMAZING game to play. Thank you for this.

Under rating threshold (show) i disagree with HiImAshley, if the game gave more points, the highscores would just be bigger, thus, nothing would happen, just more numbers to deal with

Under rating threshold (show) A good strategy for me is to go for the big ships first (unless a small one is about to destroy you). Those big ships will just keep spawning more and more enemies unless you kill them early in the wave.

Under rating threshold (show) Good stuff! Fun and very pretty with nice sound and music to boot. The closest thing to a bug report I have is that the font makes it very difficult at times to distinguish f/t and i/j/l, which can get pretty hairy, especially with all the scattered letters and big ships coming!

Under rating threshold (show) Looks good. Could use a mute button, pause option, pause on focus lost, level select, upgrades, more than 1 life and much more. Only two good things about this game are the looks and the feel and that gets old really fast when you ehh want to mute, pause, save, get some sense of reward, die and have to start all over again instead of not having to repeat the first lvls over and over again. 1/5

Under rating threshold (show) Fun, but annoying when you start to type one word and it insists you have to do a random different one first that starts with the same letter, which may be hidden from view. Also, the words should not be counted against you unless they have reached the bottom of your screen, not the ship itself (otherwise they should explode or give some other indication that they are no longer worth targeting).

Under rating threshold (show) Aesthetically the best typing shooter I've played here; the background is uncluttered, the words are easy to see, the shots are quick and the shot sound is just like a typewriter - perfect. The game not pausing when it goes out of focus is a problem (for some reason I lost focus several times and had to click back on, losing precious time); also, when I was trying to clear a spread of one-letter shots, the game prioritized on an enemy instead, confusing me and costing me the game at level 48 or something. Still, head and shoulders above most entries in this...uh...'genre', if you can call it that. I salute you.

Under rating threshold (show) Pretty fun, very satisfying to hear the gun shoot as fast as I type. One problem I'm having is a sound glitch: it appears only one sound can play at a time. When I shoot the gun, the music has to stop playing so the gun sound can play, and if I'm shooting quickly then overlapping gun sounds cancel each other out.

Under rating threshold (show) Needs to automatically go to pause mode (ESC) when out of focus. Keyboard control in the menu would also make sense, especially considering what game this is. A bit more design (like a backdrop level) would be good to. One could also collide into it, and prevent collision by pressing the space bar. :) Holding shift (uppercase writing) could switch to another weapon like rocket launchers, and could require one to type abbreviations (like “IBM“). Anyway, that’s just my ideas. But it’s nice to see HTML5 games coming into fashion. (I’m writing one right now. :) (Well, actually it has nothing to do with HTML5, but with JavaScript APIs, like the Canvas object, and works just as well with HTML4, SVG, pure XML, or pretty much anything.)
