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?

Very cool game! It was one of the games that I really wanted to replay again, but I totally forgot about it, so I'm kind off late, but still, glad that I played it again. The story is kind off basic and a bit too generic, but that's not a big problem. I really loved the level design, all the different weapon types that you could get and especially the Area Challenges. They were quite unique, it wasn't just a "kill ... enemies" or "collect ...", it had some pretty interesting missions in it, such as bringing the chickens into one place or extinguishing the fire with the squirt gun, was quite a neat touch and gave us a small break from all this pure action madness.

The combat system was a bit too simple and repetitive, but the different weapon types, as I've already mentioned, made the gameplay still amazing. I also think that there should be more upgrades, such as health, armor, lives or something like that. Sad it didn't have any NG medals in it tho

Anyways, great job on this game! I'm excited to replay the sequel, too :P
