It's a well drawn game and enjoyable enough, though I feel the short length could be compensated by making it a bit harder with the first two bosses ?

The biggest issue however is that each stage has just one enemy type and no obstalces or anything which kinda makes shooting enemies a little boring after a while. : o

This was super-cute and good, thanks for makin' it! I loved juggling bells and the characters were all adorable.

Wow, I really love the look of this. I'm love Cotton, so this might be right up my alley.
