Added DiffLines:

** The "improved" ending to the first game is a cheesy-looking AWinnerIsYou screen.

* JumpScare: Like with the second game, the Heart Rate upgrade. The game warns you about this at least if you try to purchase it.

* JumpScare: Like with the second game, the Heart Rate upgrade. The game warns you about this at least if you try to purchase it. While the first two aren't really a scare since they appear almost immediately (and have StylisticSuck graphics), the last one pops up suddenly without warning, a good few seconds after the upgrade is bought.



* ScreamerPrank: The first two Heart Rate upgrades are ''very'' laughably bad and not even scary screamers since they lack surprise and have terrible graphics. The [[JumpScare final one]], though...

Added DiffLines:

* PinataEnemy: Like the previous game's FinalBoss, the final boss of this game drops ''loads'' of cash, this time whenever each "part" is defeated.

Added DiffLines:

* BigBad: Your assistant himself, to nobody's surprise. Upgrading his UI the third time gives him a stereotypical "bad guy" look with sunglasses and he even lampshades it.

Added DiffLines:

* FuelMeterOfPower: Halfway through the game, your health will get a constantly decreasing status, and in order to replenish it you need to pick up a [[HeartsAreHealth heart powerup]]. If your health reaches zero, you won't die, but you will be unable to attack which is ''not'' a good thing.

* AdvancingBossOfDoom: As the BigBad says, his doom ship "approaches slowly from the right side of the screen".

* BattleshipRaid: The FinalBoss is essentially this. It has multiple "weapons" you need to destroy (none of which fire at all), once all of its weaponry go down, you're able to damage the main body and put it down for good.



* BugWar: Your goal in this game is to defend the station from a huge armada of giant flying bugs of ever-increasing size and difficulty.



* TakeThat: One of the annoying ads you have to upgrade to get rid of is for a game called [[{{VideoGame/Evony}} Insectony]]
