Cotton, the witch, loves the little fairy-like Willows. That is why she couldn't resist their call for help when the Willow Kingdom was suddenly overcome by the powers of darkness! Cotton, armed only with her flying broom and magic ability, must fly through several side-scrolling levels, blasting enemies before they blast her! However, a Willow is also along for the flight, and she helps out by also shooting, launching herself at the enemy and even grabbing some shots and detonating them in her hands! Cotton also has super potions that can be acquired, which include a fiery dragon and a powerful blast of lightning! These are ideal for dealing with the tough Mid-Boss and Boss characters lurking in each level! Look for her bombs, too, that can be used by pressing Button 1! Join this plucky little witch for Cotton's crusade and save the Willows from darkness!

Had the NGPC not gotten the axe, gamers this fall would have earned the privilege of playing one of the most time-honored representatives of the shooter genre. OK, so maybe Cotton isn't exactly R-Type or Gradius. It is, however, a five-level shooter full of cute fairies, ghostly enemies, magical power-ups, and a cantankerous witch. Although "pocketized," all the same bosses, power-ups, and cut-scenes from the PC Engine original remain intact. If you're hungry enough, the Asia market release (out now) is in English.
