Some have observed that “stylistically ‘Panorama Cottton’ stands out for having lost any melancholy undertones; instead it simply strives to be uniquely psychedelic”. With these rich environments the speed at which the obstructions scale and the sheer visual complexity of 'Panorama Cotton' exceed what many thought possible for the Mega Drive. The game is so fast in fact, that it makes the almost constant slow down seen in 'Cotton 100%' all the more embarrassing for Super Nintendo owners. That being said 'Panorama Cotton' does suffer from occasional jerkiness and a weird strobe-like effect where the impressive chequer board floors on some levels flicker. You have to wonder if it's an optical illusion caused by the choice of clashing colours rather than a technical failing however.
Sadly the cover was amateurish - a low resolution scan of the box art that even had a website watermark on it. Luckily I have contacts that own industrial printers though so now my copy is far less embarrassing. If you're considering buying an original release do remember that this game lasts only a few hours and is natively region locked. As is so often the case with obscure titles, you should feel no shame in playing this game via emulation.
