Cactus McCoy 3: Paradise Lost
A game idea by Stadium_Star.
Based on and featuring characters created by Flipline Studios.
McCoy, a freelance treasure hunter usually picking up jobs from Hex Hatfield and his goons, was sent to locate the mysterious and mystical Thorned Emerald. He succeeded in locating the artifact but as McCoy journeyed towards Hex's base, he fell victim to the curse of the emerald and was transformed into a human/cactus hybrid. Cactus McCoy - as he was now known - swore his revenge against Hex for sending him to find the emerald, to begin with, and took off through the nearby towns alongside a previous victim of the curse's spirit named Popoca in order to defeat Hex's goons and return the Thorned Emerald before it turns him to stone.

After an arduous journey, McCoy reached the Emerald Shrine and as he was about to return the gem, Hex, and his goons interrupted his journey. An epic duel began between the two with McCoy victorious and just barely being able to return the Emerald before his body is turned to stone. News of McCoy's victory soon spreads and eventually he runs afoul of Ella Windstorm, the last of the winged Volados, who has discovered the Serpent Blade. Before either McCoy or she can steal the blade, a Reptaran known as Malana Mire snatches the blade and kidnaps Windstorm.

Currently, Cactus McCoy and his traveling party consisting of former enemies Alpaca Jack and Dumbell, friendly rival Ella Windstorm, and the spirit of Popoca have been exploring the world in search of a way to counteract the curse and restore McCoy to his former self. Their search has led them to the Galarpeggo Islands where the locals tell of an ancient recipe book containing cures to possibly every disease and cure on the planet. While Jack and Dumbell explore the area, McCoy and Ella head deep into the jungles of the first island in search of the book and encounter a massive temple. They follow clues and inscriptions deep into it and discover the book; there's just one problem - all but one of the pages are missing.

McCoy is alerted to the sound of footsteps approaching and spots an odd man named Mr. Valentine come from behind them. Valentine reveals the two led him right to the book and now he must destroy them and get the other pages back to complete the recipes and gain ultimate power, but not before revealing he has transformed Alpaca Jack, Daisy, and Dumbell into playing cards and plans to insert them into his most powerful minions yet. The two treasure hunters then chase after Valentine but he uses an energy blast to send them flying onto another island, where the adventure begins.
Cactus McCoy: The former treasure hunter turned cactus returns for round three of his adventures with a slew of weapons in tow. McCoy is an overall balanced character, to begin with, and has no special abilities, similar to characters like Mario and Link, but has a powerful punch as he's developed the ability across his journey.

Ella Windstorm: Ella is the last remaining survivor of the Valados tribe and the protector of the Serpent Blade first seen in Cactus McCoy 2: The Ruins of Calavera. Due to her heritage and ancestry, Ella has wings she can use to glide through levels and also attack enemies with along with incredible agility and jump height at the cost of low attack power.
Mr. Spikede: One of the lowest ranked goons of Valentine's army who has an obsession with all things sharp and deadly.

Saguaromole, Guardian of Cactuaria Enclave: The first guardian encountered in the game and protector of Cactuaria Enclave. Saguaromole is a ginormous stone cactus statue who was brought to life by one of Valentine's minions, being Mr. Spikede (who was encountered as the mid-boss earlier) and was sent to destroy McCoy and Ella. His abilities include being able to produce McCoy Imposters from nowhere, slamming his large fists down to create shockwaves, and to protect himself with a spiked shield and the strategy for defeating him is grabbing the drills and pickaxes from the boxes scattered by his shockwaves and then using them to break his shield and then damage him.

Mrs. Diazond:

Mamma Rilla, Guardian of ?: Mamma Rilla is the second guardian encountered and rests peacefully on ?. That was until she was awoken by Mr. Valentine's minion Mrs. Diazond and clearly, she's got a grudge against Popoca (or rather another cactus hero) as she is incredibly tough and deals damage quickly. Her skills will put McCoy's abilities to the test as they include being incredibly nimble, able to throw bouncing cactus at McCoy, wielding a spiked paddle, and able to hook whoever she fights. McCoy must use items to deflect her hook, be quick on his feet, and be able to counter her attacks.

Mr. Valentine: Finally, the encounter with Mr. Valentine has arrived. Valentine's fight can be compared to the final boss from the previous game, but with a twist.
Special Thanks:
Matt and Tony, you guys created an awesome game series and I hope you'll seek to improve your skills as the industry changes and you gain more experience.

The shop in Paradise Lost is much more expansive and expensive when compared to other games in the series as not only can starting weapons and stat upgrades be purchased here, but new items such as Animals, Guides, and Detectors can be bought albeit for a higher price.
  • Treasure Detector - Need to find that last treasure in a level? Pick up a Treasure Detector and you'll be able to seek out relics easier. Remain aware that it isn't always accurate.

  • Chest Detector -
    COST: 35,000 Gold.

  • Cactuaria Enclave Guide - Need a guide to find some hidden areas in Cactuaria Enclave? Purchase this guide - which can be brought up using the pause menu on any level - and you'll be on your way to completion in no time.
  • Diamonough Archipelago Guide - Despite only being the second island, Diamonough Archipelago is littered with plenty of unique shops, hidden areas, and tourist spots. This guide will reveal the secrets of the island so you'll be able to get the full experience.

Looks good so far.

Not removing my signature until Flipline makes a CMC3:
AskJoe [Jun 30 11:19 PM]:   Flipline should make Cactus McCoy 3.
Kangablue [Jul 02 12:59 AM]:   I want Cactus McCoy 3 now Sad
Phil Swift [Sep 12 07:43 PM]:   They need to make CMC 3
Penguin022 was quietly listening to his own music while also praying for Cactus McCoy 3 to come out, which honestly, would be a good idea since I love the game personally.

Hey, guys!

As you can tell, there's been a few updates since I last arrived on the forum. I've added info on two more islands, new items in the shop, and introduced THREE new bosses. I've still got more coming, but I'll be updating this less frequently as Christmas comes and goes.

Thank you for sticking with this idea.

If and whenever this game DOES get made, i would LOVE to hear some ideas for possibly a fourth or even a fifth game. I believe that if Cactus McCoy got a trilogy with the return of Hex Hatfield, Malana Mire, and even some new bosses, it would guarantee for probably the best game of the McCoy line
I will still have high hopes for this game being made by whoever with everything down to the last original sound track from the previous two games and new ones for this possible third

Good idea but it won't happen.

I'm already in May 2020, the future is great!
