Where's all the money I made?

I played this game for a while, and then realized that the money that I was making on the typing page didn't match up with the upgrade money I was getting. Sure annoyed me and made this game worthless when I got ONE upgrade for playing most of the levels...

You get a zero.

Without those bugs...

...this one would be really great.

2 Bugs:
only 3 letters shown (yellow planes - 4 missle ones, i.e. MOM shown, but neets MOMS typed)
once you fire more than a single missile each volly, ships bigger than the round red ones don't get destroyed. Especially with the missile firing ships this is very annoying - always getting missiles shot from behind yourself and out of screen where you can't read what the 4-letter code to target the missile is...

Overall, work this one over, fix spelling and bugs, then post again. It's worth the efford to fix this!

I liked it, but

The graphics are great, very good game-play, along with a pretty original theme. It is very fun to play, except for the numerous glitches. If you were to fix this game up, I'm sure you would get 4.3-4.7 for it.
I would suggest you move the up/down keys away from the tab button, as that will set the focus on the web page, and scroll the page down.

Bugs i noticed:

With missile upgrade 1, sphere enemies do not fully die, and you don't have the option to type in another word to kill them (or it just isn't displayed), the same goes for the jet fighters.

Also, many, many words do not fully display, and only the first three letters are shown for them. This leaves the player to have to guess the last letter.

In-level money changes when you hit an enemy, but does not change for the end-level summary.

I would love to see this game completely fixed up, as I did rather enjoy it.

Cool idea but buggy...

I like typing games alot, they're nice to get into blind typing if you haven't been using a computer for a while. I think they're also nice for people who want to practice typing.

Anyway sadly the three-letter bug was very annoying, also the money you got at the end of the missions didn't accumulate. After finishing the game I was still unable to buy any bigger upgrade.

good idea, but...

problem for me was that i do not have a caps-lock assigned ( got esc for it ), means i only could dodge down.

about the 3-letter planes, these are actually 4 letter planes but i think the letters like M or so are too big and occupy too much space.
if you want to shoot it you have to guess the last letter ( like for AMM the word was AMMO , etc... )
