something I thought while trying the game, is that the effect of typing is immediate while the actual bullets only hit slightly later. You could change out the bullets for a laser (or if that's too boring for lightning-> a broken line) to make the graphical effect also immediate.

Yes that is an issue. Actually the bullets take some time to reach the word I need to fix that up. Lightening sounds awesome but wondering how to produce that kind of effect in compose

a "laser" would be a single Line from start to target, "lightning" would be a brocken up line, so many line segments/ individual calls to drawLine.
