The house next to the saloon is locked up, and it’s impossible to enter it using the front entrance. To get inside, gamers have to use the horse carriage on the far left side of this area so they can jump and get onto the balcony of the saloon. This will make it possible to reach the balcon of the locked house. If gamers take out the bandit holding the Theet hostage, they’ll be allowed to enter it.

There is a hole on the wall on right side of the house, and the Ribbon NPC is tucked away inside. Players must hit the NPC with the Power of Sparkle to cheer them up so he will give them the

Sparkle Gem 4

Once fans receive the Cowgirl Peach transformation, they will be taken to the inside of the saloon to fight the bandits. Here, they will have the opportunity to acquire the fourth Sparkle Gem. However, if they miss it, they’ll have to restart or replay the level to try again.

Barrels and bandits will pop out of the ground once the fight starts. Players will have to use their hogtie to grab the barrels and get the Theets out. To get the fourth Sparkle Gem in Cowgirl in the Wilderness, players must save all five Theets during the saloon fight. Here is a video demonstrating how to do it:

Even though Peach is able to save the Theets and defeat some of the bandits, they will still manage to get away with the loot. So, during the next sequence of the play, she will chase them down. Just like in the Ninjutsu: The Art of Rapids level, this level includes a non-stop scene, and gamers won’t be able to go back to where they were once it starts.

To get the fifth Sparkle Gem, players have to successful ride over the eight fragments of Sparkle Gems as they ride through the first area of the chase scene.

Sparkle Gem 6

Sparkle Gem 8

Players can get the eight Sparkle Gem by using the hogtie to pull back the metal shield on the back of the boss’s horse.

Sparkle Gem 9

Before chasing down the head of the bandits, players will be able to get the ninth Sparkle Gems by entering the secret underground stage. It is located right beside the door leading up to the boss fight.

Here, players must take down every bandit using their hogtie. After they’ve done this, they will be rewarded with a Sparkle Gem.

Sparkle Gem 10

Lastly, in order to capture the last Sparkle Gem and complete the Cowgirl in the Wilderness level, players will have to fight the boss bandit that stole everything from the Theets back in town.

To make this fight easier, gamers should memorize the boss’s attack patterns. First, the boss will shoot his weapon, and cannon balls will come out. Thankfully, they are quite slowly and easy to dodge. Then, he will shoot a barrel from his gun, and similarly to the saloon fight, players have to grab the barrel with their hogtie and throw it back at the bandit. He will become confused, and this is when they have to use the tie on him.

Players experiencing difficulty completing this fight might want to consider

Next, the bandit will use the bull horns on his hat and run straight ahead. He does this twice the first time around, and then three times the second time. To beat the boss in Cowgirl in the Wilderness, players must hogtie him a total of three times. Once he’s been defeated, players will receive the tenth Sparkle Gem.
