Quick! Everyone to go Emuasylum and download the ROMs for Cotton and play!
I decided to start playing these - and WOW, the first one is TOUGH AS BALLS. I must be on an off-shmup day or something because I can't even get past the boss of the second level. The fact that it only lets you continue once per stage is really a kick in the pants.
I can't definite entirely why it's so difficult. I guess because your weapon is far too weak, even fully powered up. And at its lowest level, MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL. Plus...Cotton seems like kind of a big target. I'm not really sure if she's THAT much better than the Vic Viper or R9, but she seems a bit taller.
I gave up on the arcade one and went to the PC Engine one. Awesome music, but still only made it to level 6.
Any thoughts? Also, anyone knows anything about Cotton 100% for the PSOne? I think it's just a port of the SFC game but I can't find anything anywhere one it.

Both the ST-V games on MAME and the Saturn emulators run like crap on my computer. I guess it's that tricky hardware. I have the Saturn version of Cotton Boomerang so I can play it on the real thing now, so I guess it's all good.
As it turns out, Cotton Boomerang is really just an upgrade of Cotton 2. Like, Cotton 2 Champion Edition. Other than upgrading the graphics and music a bit, it COMPLETELY overhauls the game system. I think I like Boomerang's better, but I've only played 2 on these slow-as-hell emulators so who knows.
Panorama Cotton is NICE, if mostly for the OMG THE GENESIS IS CAN DO SCALING effect.
