Wild West Island Guide

Wild West Island Guide written by Super Thunder

Go to Wild West Island if you’re not there yet. Go right until you see a cowboy trying to trade your future horsey companion, Elmer. I called mine Elmira. Try to tame it, by talking to the cowboy. Try to keep your cursor over the white one, and once Elmer gets tamed, he’s all yours. You’ll get a little whistle for when you and Elmer get separated.

Then, go talk to the lady on the horse, and she’ll give you a letter for the Marshal in Diamond Plains. Now you and Elmer can leave town. Once you leave, pull down your map on the top right hand corner to see Diamond Plains. Go there.

Go right, to the Saloon. Talk to some guys that are throwing gum. Join them, and play. Throw your gum, when your aim is perfect into the pot. After you win (yes, you’ll win eventually), you will find out that the Marshal is the snoring guy towards the end of the shop. You will go and tell him you have a letter for him, but you’ll have to read it. He won’t help, so you’ll be the new Marshal. He’ll give you his Marshal Badge. You are to take down the El Mustachio Gang.

Put it on to show everyone who’s boss. You can leave Diamond Plains now. Go back to Dusty Gulch, and get your picture taken. You have to hold the camera on you, while it develops. You’ll get your You Portrait. Go back to Diamond Plains, and enter the Marshal Building. It looks like this:

That is what the shop looks like, and that is what Elmer looks like. And in case you were wondering how the Member’s only outfit looks like, I am wearing it. Go inside. Use your picture, and since you are officially the new Marshal, you get the Pea Shooter! Do you realize that you can now shoot peas? Anyway, just as you get the Shooter, the ground will begin to shake. El Mustachio’s Gang is rescuing the jailed person! They will take off, but you and Elmer have to help! Follow the Mustachio horses, until they go into the train entrance. Then you’ll say they got away. So you just go to Dos Cactos.

Find the star in Dos Cactos, and enter from the shooting side. Once in there, enter the shooting contest by talking to everyone. Once you start, aim like this:

Aim about one centimeter above your object. Then shoot. Even if you have a few left, it’s better to reload as soon as possible. You will have to play against a few opponents, and finally, after you win, you’ll get a Spud Gun. Now, go up the little hill to the Casino. Go inside, and go to the top floor. Talk to the guy with cards on his hat. You’re gonna play a game of Slap Jack! What you have to do, is you just put cards in the center, and when you see a Jack in the center, you slap it! But here’s the catch: the opponents move the Jack, so you have to be sure it’s properly placed before slapping it. Otherwise, you lose a card.

When you have all the cards, you win. You’ll get a map for gold. You’re done with the Casino, so go to Rock Ridge. Talk to the Cowgirl with orange hair. She needs her cow, and after talking to you, she’ll give you a Lasso. Go find that cow! Activate your Lasso, by using your spacebar. Follow the little trail of hoofprints, and go North a little bit. You’ll find the little cow. When your Lasso is pointing straight her, use your spacebar again. The cow will resist, and don’t force her yet. But after a little while, she’ll know who’s boss, and she’ll follow you. Lead her to the ranch that looks like this:

After you’ve led her there, go back to Rock Ridge. Talk to the Cowgirl. You’ll get an Old Saddle. The cowgirl will say something about 5 more cows. But we’ll come back to that later. Go right, and R.J. Earls will give someone a bad potion that will make them invisible. Now leave the town and Lasso five more cows. After you’re done with that, go talk to the Cowgirl again. She’ll give you the secret Rattlesnake Wrangler outfit. It looks like this:

NOTE: The secret outfit is not necessary to complete this island. It is an extra. Anyway, go to Dusty Gulch. Go to the Trading Post. Talk to the Trader, and trade your Old Saddle for a Gold Pan. Go to this location on your Map:

Once you get there, examine it. You have to pan for gold. Where I found gold was in this location, right here:

If you found the Gold, it should look like this:

Yay! Gold! You can go back to Dusty Gulch and trade again. This time, trade your pan for the Oil. Now go to Diamond Plains. Find the guy that looks like Hephaestus, and he will be standing in front of a door thing. Go inside that.

For this inside part, you will have to pull a few different levers and push some boxes. Just make sure you get to the top. You will see a giant thingy with gears and stuff.

Only it’s gonna look really dirty and rusty. Click on it, and use your oil for all the gears that connect one side of the clock to the other. Use the oil on them until they let of a shine. Then, they should work. Leave that room, and go to Rock Ridge. Talk to R.J. Earls and use your Gold Nugget. He’ll give you some of everything. Go back to Diamond Plains, and get off of Elmer. Ride the train, and say that you wanna go to Dos Cactos. For this next part, shoot your heart out. The Mustachio gang is at it again! Use your Spud Gun, and shoot at them! The Concentration Carbohydrate will make it slow down, but you only have a limited supply. You must shoot each person three times. Reload whenever possible. You will arrive in Dos Cactos after a while, and talk to the boy with the big head. He wants a blue tulip. Go back on the train, and ride to Rock Ridge. Find this place:

Click on the Canary to shoot it. Don’t worry, it’ll only make him drop his keys. Grab them, and go left to the door with the lock. Use the keys to go inside. Inside the mine, go right. Rocks will drop. Go right and drop on the Mining cart. This next part is similar to Nabooti Island, except instead of ducking and jumping, you have to shoot at the targets. Ride, and then you’ll come to a stop. Find the Blue Tulip and go up.

Do NOT ask me why there is a cow there. I honestly don’t know.

Once you go up, go right. A guy will be crying. Apparently Mustachio and his gang have wreaked havoc. Above the Crying Dude’s head, there is a piece of paper. Grab it. Go to Dos Cactos. Give the Tulip to the kid with the giant head. His head will shrink to normal and he will give you the other half of the map to the hideout. Are you ready for the battle with Mustachio? Well, this is it! Ride to here:

The yellow star where I’m at. Go there, and use the Transparency Tonic. Then, sneak past them. Go inside their cabin for the Final Shootout. You will have to get rid of everyone, except El Mustachio Grande. Make sure not to get shot. For the girl in purple, shoot at the money bags above her. They’ll spill, and then shoot at her using Concentration Carbohydrate. For the guy in blue, next to Mustachio, shoot at the candle, which will put the rope on fire. Get rid of him using CC. For the guy with the Orange beard, shoot the gun lying under the cow head. Take him out using CC. For the other guy with a Sombrero, hit the wheel, and take him out. Then El Mustachio will take off. Take off after him. Follow Mustachio, and then Lasso him. Take him to Diamond Plains. El Mustachio Grande will be sent to jail, and you’ll get your Medallion! Congrats!

  2. I am having a hard time shooting the bandits on the train, any tips.please post your response here on this web site
    Super Thunder: Hi Ashly! The train shootout is very hard, but I managed it by staying in the secong window, and aiming like one inch in front of the rider’s horse. Also, I reloaded as soon as I got donw with one bandit, instead of waiting ’till I ran out. Hope this helps!

  3. Hey super thunder, what if 1 of the 5 cows you have to catch for the red-headed lady is stuck on 1 of those redish rocks that you cant get on… then what do you do??
    Super Thunder: You have to try to lead the cow away from there. Walk around the rock, slowly, to see if it’ll get off.

    • The cows are wandering off near the ranch. Most of them are left of the ranch, but some are to the right. When you find one, use the space bar to use the lasso while staying some space away from the cow. When you think the throw is accurate, press the space again to lasso the cow and slowly lead it to the ranch.

  18. I love this Island. It’s something different I guess. I think Mustachio was a gr8 villian. What I don’t like is the shooting on the train. … I was being hit by PEAS! Couldn’t it be something nicer-tasting… like, um, carrot peices?

  19. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. This Island has a TON of glitches! I had to catch the calf about five times before the coputer realized I’d actually completed the task. Then I traded for the gold pan, and when I went to the gold river, it said, ‘ I should probably get a gold pan for getting the gold ‘ or something like that, My sibling had similiar problems.

  21. I NEED HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    every time I try to lead the cow to the ranch she stays still by an old tree! I try to lasso her and chase her but she just stays in the same place! I have tried this 37 times. I am really frustrated and cant figure it out! please someone help!
