Mudslide Cowboy is about a man with a whip, a lasso & a dream. A dream to become the worlds greatest & most successful mudslide cowboy. For the uninitiated, Mudslide Drifting is the honourable profession of riding large logs down the side of a mountain where there is, or has recently been, a mudslide, in the hopes of winning wealth, fame - and a damsel's heart, of course.
Jasper Jones has been enjoying a lovely evening with Lady Jane, picnicking atop Mt. Dangerous, when, suddenly, Dastardly Dan and his motley crew rudely interrupt the dotting couples lovely courting session. How rude!
In a typically dastardly move, Dan makes off with Lady Jane and all her lovely, valuable things (she's quite the wealthy lady). Now, to save his love and recover her treasure, Jasper Jones, ordinarily a tad trepidations in his demeanour, must become something else entirely...
He reaches for a nearby log, ties his bandanna around his face (you know, for mystique.. and to keep the dust out too), and, launches himself down the mountain in hot pursuit -- and into the unknown.
Mudslide Cowboy is born.
As you rocket down the mountain, guiding Mudslide Cowboy around with your finger (or cursor, for desktop users), you will encounter all kinds of wealthful (& sometimes healthful) wonders. Gathering these is a lot of fun. There will be hazards too, though! Whip those logs, rocks & bushes out of your way by tapping them. Mudslide Cowboy will automatically know whether to use the whip or the lasso, depending on what you tap. So click away! Whipping rocks will sometimes reveal gold or silver, which you will then gather (it pays to whip things, is basically the point). Each level is unique, with it’s own unique set of challenges & rewards.
