Author Comments

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?

Game Features:
-12 Expansive Worlds to Explore
-60 Hidden Treasures to find
-59 Unique Weapons to Master
-60 Area Challenges
-80 Badges to Earn
-Upgrade your stats with the money you earn
-Over 10 hours of action-packed gameplay!

The best game on Newgrounds

Everything a plattformer needs. Literally hours of gameplay. I came back several days to this game just to finish it, in every level I tried to do everything (and I did), and once I finished it...I want more! Please give us more!

Really, with bigger grapgics (not better, just bigger), this could be easily a portable console game. Probably the best game I've seen on Newgrounds.

Very nice! Has a lot of character, and I can tell you put a great deal of work into this game. Amazing game, well rounded, great music, lots of fun. Only thing this game needs is medals, but that's not a huge deal. Keep up the good work!


Man you have such a great game you are AWESOME
