Space dragon shmup [Cosmo Dragon]

I don't recall the exact year I played this on Windows, but I think it was a late 90's shareware thing, rooooughly contemporous with Nethergate, so maybe 1998?

What I do recall is that it was a 2D top-down vertical shmup about being a purple dragon (fairly sure it wasn't Spyro) flying through space, shooting down asteroids and, later, faintly insectoid black enemies that would try to splat you by crashing into you. There were weapon uprades to go from your starting semi-auto fireball to a full auto fireball to spread shot, full auto spread shot, piercing lightning bolts... I think the first boss was a floating castle.

That's the one, thank you - that's been bugging me for years.
