When I shoot the enemy doesnt die when the bullet comes in the middle, I need to shoot a bit to the right so the enemey disapears but how do i fix.

The point given by eclipse is the middle point of the ellipse/circle.
When you check if there is a hit it checks in the area
ballX to ballX+25
However the ball also goes 25 to the left so you need to check
ballX-25 to ballX+25.
