Cactus McCoy and the Curse of the Thorns is a platform game about Cactus McCoy, hired by Hex Hatfield to find the Thorned Emerald. When McCoy found and took it, he was cursed by the Curse of Thorns which transformed McCoy in to a walking, talking, brawling cactus. It is a race against time to bring the Thorned Emerald back to its proper place before Cactus McCoy will be a lifeless cactus forever. There are 12 different worlds to explore, 60 hidden treasures, 58 unique weapons (not including the fists), 60 area challenges, 80 badges to earn, and over 10 hours of game play.+
Hex Hatfield calls McCoy, who is his employee and tells him to find the Thorned Emerald, then gives him a map to know his destination. Using it, McCoy goes through pits and caves. While going, a black silhouette chases him but he doesn't realize. Then, he finds the emerald that his boss wants. The emerald is on a stone pedestal and "BEWARE THE CURSE" is written on the wall behind it, but he takes it and goes to sleep on a rock. While sleeping, he realizes that something is strange with himself and starts to become a walking cactus, as the sleeves of his clothes tear and thorns come out of his hat. Afterwards, a ghost figure comes to the dark sky and calls McCoy and tells him that his name is Popōca and he too was cursed by the Thorned Emerald. He also tells McCoy that if he doesn't take the emerald back to its place in time, he will become stone. McCoy gets aware of the situation and starts to go to the home of the emerald. The black silhouette, who is revealed to be a goon of Hatfield, sees this and tells it to him. Hatfield gets very angry, as he thinks that McCoy stole his emerald and his money and tells all of his goons, the Enemigos to catch "Cactus" McCoy.
This game is the first Flipline Game to feature real weapons.
This surnames Hatfield and McCoy refer to the legendary Hatfield and McCoy family feud that took place in the United States of America in the mid 1800's.
