Cactus McCoy is a sideways scrolling beat ’em up, with a western theme and lots of weapons! This is a Flash based cartoon game with a silly story – you play McCoy, who finds a mysterious stone that turns you into a cactus-hero! Strangely, Cactus McCoy doesn’t seem to have any super powers beyond being green and spiky, but that doesn’t spoil what is a well made if simplistic beat ’em up.
Although there is just one attack button, the range of weapons make it all quite enjoyable. Taking out baddies with a branch is kind of funny, and there’s even a water pistol lying around! Overall, Cactus McCoy is a great little arcade timewaster to play in your browser. Head over to Kongregate and check it out.
