About The Game
Cotton Boomerang - Magical Night Dreams is an arcade video game and is a follow-up game to Cotton 2. Cotton Boomerang uses the same graphics, sound and enemies, but has slightly different gameplay and is missing the following: -
- Lifebars, now you have one-hit kills (similar to the very first episode).
- Extra lives, instead you have 3 chosen characters, tag-team style.
- Experience-based level system, leveling up now depends on bonus items during the game.
- Special, full-screen Magic attacks, instead you have an instant smart-bomb when you change into a different character in-game.
- Power-up-dependant magic attacks, now each character has his/her own magic attack by default.
The characters are also equipped with secondary attacks to make their shooting style more distinctive from each other. And to top that, you have plenty of new moves, counterattacks, powerups, and key combinations to use.
Whereas Cotton 2 was more of a tactical shooter (whenever that is applicable to the game) with its chain combo and life/experience system, Cotton Boomerang is an all-out shooter due to the added moves, different level layout, and generally faster and crazier gameplay.
The game uses the same music as Cotton 2, for which Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album (Cotton 2 - PCCB-00278) on 19/09/1997.
