When a routine treasure hunt goes awry, McCoy is transformed into a walking cactus by the ancient Curse of Thorns. McCoy's mission is to return the Thorned Emerald to its true home. If he fails, the curse will continue until he is a lifeless, stone cactus.

This latest free game by Flipline Studios throws you into a Wild West world filled with ruthless outlaws, mysterious curses, and more treasures than you can swing a stick at.
Run, jump, and punch your way through an army of Enemigos sent by the monstrous Hex Hatfield. Throughout the many dangerous areas, you will find and master a barrage of weapons from razor-sharp machetes to giant bazookas. As you travel, you will uncover missing map pieces that will guide you to the source of the curse. Along the way, you can hunt for treasure, compete in time trials, take on unique challenges, or unlock over 80 badges.

Master the art of "Enemigo Juggling" to steal weapons and money from the villainous outlaws. You can then use those spoils to upgrade your many different fighting stats.

Can you become the toughest Cactus in town, and break the ancient Curse of Thorns?

Really solid and polished

The game obviously had a ton of work put into it. Everything ran smoothly, everything worked great, and everything looked amazing. My problem is it wasn't exactly stimulating enough to be fun. There was no challenge, as all the enemies could be beaten by standing next to them and mashing the 'A' button. There was an amount of exploration you wanted the player to do, but you didn't give them a reason other than improving a score that could buy upgrades. With the game being as simple gameplay-wise as it was, buying upgrades was pointless, thus making secret treasures and the other many objectives pointless. My advice would be to cut down on all the extraneous things that have little effect on the gameplay and work more on making the core mechanics fun to play. There is little point in upgrading a system that isn't fun to begin with.

Nice, but a little repetitive gameplay

Maybe if you add more bosses, you can make the game coolest =D

There's alot to like about this game, but the real standout feature is the HUGE selection of weapons. Admittedly some are just stronger and weaker versions of the same thing, but more than you might expect are genuinely unique. The only thing I didn't like is that sometimes you are forced to wait gratuitously, e.g. when adding up your score. But that's forgivable when everything else is this fun.
