This is not an ordinary shooter.. This is the difficult shooter! Navigate your ship through waves of enemy spaceships and destroy as many as you can. Earn money and buy upgrades in the shop. Be awesome, be victorious and try to get the highest score in this side scroller shooter!

Move using [WSAD or Arrow Keys]. Shoot by pressing [spacebar]. Press [Z] to switch through your weapons, which you first have to earn and buy! Press [X] to throw an atomic bomb and destroy every last one of the enemies which are on screen.

this game suck all u can do is move up and down shooting at the guy .that is make me sleepy.so don't ever play this game plz

Nice music. Nice sprites. Nice interface with easy menus.

Not so good.
A problem when pressing left and up it locks the ship in place or just goes up. Same for right and down. You could implement a boss maybe. Some enemy attack patterns are to fast a bit more dealy would be nice, even if the game is called "The Difficult Shooter".

I'll go for a try!
There is a name bug.
you can't do 1 letter for your name, right?
If you backspace it allows you to do 1 letter.
I mean, if i wanted my name to be J it would not let me if i type it in when i have nothing written down,
so I will type in one or more letters after J i can backspace them but not backspace the J i started with.
anyway, just a bug, about the game - the graphics are good, honestly i think it is a original shooter to me no offense, good game!

The game is alright, but it gets boring over time: enemies approach, evade enemy attacks, keep shooting, then more enemies approach, shoot, evade enemy attacks again... And so over and over.

This is a really fun game! I like the different ships and the money collection. The shop is very useful and players must rely on getting kills to get better upgrades. One thing that isn't so good about this game is that you only have one life. I would suggest adding a purchase life thing in the store. All together this is a great game. Keep up the good work! 4/5
