West Game Guide – How To Play

In West Game, the player takes the role of Sheriff and develop the town by constructing and upgrading various town buildings. Your objective is to grow the town, increase the power, build a massive army to defend the town from attackers, and rule the west world. It would not be easy as there are loads of things to take care of – researches, upgrades, army, resources, heroes, sheriff, and more.

At the beginning of the game, you will follow the tutorial quests, most of them teach you how to train the army units, build defense structures, upgrade, build more buildings, etc. The total summary is to develop the town, increase the army power, max out the researches, and survive in the West apocalypse where other Sheriffs can raid your town anytime and loot the resources.

Yes, apart from building and upgrades, you can battle Outlaws, other players for the resources and precious items. Additionally, all the sheriff can attack each other town(if there is no protection) and deal a lot of damage economically as well as military. In an attack, you may lose loads of trained troops and resources. Of course, you can set up the defense and put the heroes on guard to protect the town. Let’s learn everything in details: –

West Game Buildings Guide

It’s important to know about each building that you have built in the town – ignoring the buildings after construction is the biggest mistake if you are playing this type of game for the first time. Once you build a structure in the town, tap it and check what it does, what will happen if you upgrade it. We have listed all the details below, but you should not act like a lazy person – inspect every building in the town and get to know its function. It will help you in learning the game concept.

  • Town Center

The town center in West Game is the core point of the town. This building provides an overview of all the sectors, for example – production status, buildings, troops, traps, etc. Tap it and then tap the overview button to check the details. The town center level impacts the march size(total size of the march that you can send at a time), march queue(the total number of marches you can trigger at a time), alliance help, and the number of heroes in march. The max level of town center building is level 21. Keep upgrading it and get benefits. Tap the town center -> then tap the (i) button at the bottom-left corner to check the upgrade details.

  • Defense Factory

This factory is responsible for traps, trap repairing, and the guards. You can build traps using this factory and assign heroes on the guard slots. Keep upgrading it – build traps for the intruders, assign heroes on the guard.

  • Command Center

Command Center is responsible for the rally attacks. You can team up with other alliance sheriffs and attack on a single target by initiating the rally attacks. To initiate a rally attack, find the target player(go to the map and find level 10+ town or Gang of Bandits) -> rally war -> now, other alliance members will be able to join you. You can check all the ongoing rally war in the alliance menu -> rally war. Upgrade the command center to increase rally capacity.

  • Embassy

To join rally war, embassy building is required. For example – if someone in the alliance has initiated the war, other players can join him/her by sending reinforcement. Tap the embassy -> reinforce. Upgrade the embassy to increase reinforcement limit.

  • Market In West Game

Alliance members in West Game can help each other in dreadful time by sending the resources. The market building allows you to transport the RSS to another member. Upgrade it to reduce the tax rate, increase capacity, and request limit.

  • Jail

Well, not all the attacks can be successful. If the target defends the town successfully, the enemy’s sheriff may end up in jail. Executing the captured hostile sheriffs give juicy buffs to the player. Upgrade the jail building for more benefits.

  • Monument

Here you can revive the dead troops. To revive, you need revival spell or instant revival spell-like special items.

  • Cabin

The cabin is where the silver is produced. You need silver for several upgrades & construction.

  • Duel Yard

Here you shoot the target and earn rewards. You need ammo to play this mode. The player gets free ammo every day. More ammo can be obtained in exchange for gold.

  • Blacksmith 

Here you can forge, enhance the equipment. The Sheriff can carry equipment and give special buffs which help the town. To forge equipment, you need materials and resources. Go to the blacksmith -> all equipment -> tap the detail option to check the details of the material. How do you get these materials? The player can acquire these materials by defeating the outlaws on the map or from the material chests, quests(VIP, Daily, Alliance). Material chests cost gold.

You can combine the equipment to increase their level/quality. Or degrade the higher quality material into low-tier material. All these functions can be accessed using the blacksmith facility.

  • Hospital

If someone attacked your town, troops may get injured or killed. You can heal the wounded troops in the hospital. It will cost resources and silver coins. Increasing the hospital level increases hospital capacity.

  • Sentry Station

If someone has initiated attacked against your town, this sentry station alerts you. Upgrade it to get more details and buffs – information of incoming attacks, position, arrival time, troop type, march size, hero details, etc.

  • Church

When you execute the hostile sheriff(attacker, read the jail building details for more info), you get the buffs. The church in West Game displays the buff details. Upgrade it to get more buffs.

  • Saloon – West Game

West GameThis is where you can access the heroes. You get three free chests daily – bronze, silver, and gold. From these chests, you get the heroes medals. To unlock a hero, you need a certain number of medals. For example – To unlock Jane, you need (8) Jane medals. You can tag the heroes along with the march and enjoy the buffs. Also, you can use these heroes on guard posts. Open the chests daily and get free hero medals.

  • Barrack

Here you can train the troops and build a massive army. To train more troops at a time, upgrade the barrack building. And, to unlock new troops, research in the academy.

  • Academy 

Here you can conduct the various researches in a number of sectors – economics, combat, trap, and sheriff. For example – Economics research buffs give production, construction, and gathering bonuses. Keep researching and keep growing.

  • Warehouse

The warehouse is the most useful building in the town as it protects a certain number of resources from the enemy sheriffs. The resources such as food, wood, stone, iron, etc can be protected in the warehouse. Upgrade this town-building to protect more amount of these resources.

  • Logging Camp, Quarry, Farm, Mine

These are the economic buildings where the resources are produced over time. You can increase production by upgrading these buildings or through economic research.

West Game Sheriff Guide

Level -> To increase the Sheriff level, you need Sheriff EXP. Sheriff EXP can be obtained by defeating the Outlaws on the map, from the building & upgrades, from the quests or using the Sheriff EXP item.

Gears – A Sheriff can carry a number of gears – weapon, accessory, hat, armor, etc. All these gears provide a special bonus to Sheriff. For example – Increase in trap attack, research time reduction, construction time reduction, etc. You can forge these weapons in the blacksmith building and find the materials required to craft those gears from the Outlaws.

Skills – At every level upgrade, you get the skill points. You can spend these skill points in raising the Sheriff’s skills. At the upper-left corner, tap Sheriff avatar -> skills -> here you can spend the skill points. Read the skill details before you spend these points.

    • The only location you will find is where the attack was. You will know who and tribe the belong too, that is a big help. Most time I let it go and shield up, if they have my sheriff I ask for it back kindly and yes it does work.

      • Actually you can find out from which tile the attack was initiated. Often they will Teleport right beside you, attack you and teleport away from you. Then in you Combat Report and Alliance Report (same report) you will be given the tile cordinates from where the enemy attacker was at the time the enemy initiated the attack (right next to you).

  2. Wondering if when you build an alliance building, if ALL of the tiles have to be inside the blue perimeter to get the bonuses, or just some? Any thoughts?

  3. Is it possible to delete dead cowboys, rather than resurrect them in the monument. We have some bullies who love tile-hitting, so I have yet to have any wounded go to hospital – they just die and go to the monument.

  9. When I first started playing this game, I was really upset with being zeroed by the bigger players too. Some of them just have no conscience when it comes to hitting smaller players & also tile hitting. That’s where a player attacks a resource tile while another player is gathering resources from it. It’s a cowardly move because the occupying player is basically defenseless. Tile hitting is not allowed in my state, but is in others. I’m not sure if we can or can’t change to different states but maybe someone else will know.
    Your BEST defense, is protecting yourself, ALWAYS! I can’t stress that enough. Always be shielded! You gain enough gold each day from quests & such to buy a shield. There’s no excuse. Keep the very minimum RSS in what we call our “back pack”. That’s what is shown on your screen. Keep the rest in holding. It’s safe there. Find an alliance that truly works as a team! My alliance (NOX) is on server #21 in LongValley. We’re regularly recruit but you a need to have a force of 3 million. Don’t worry, I know it’s a lot to take in, but this isn’t a simple game. You’ll learn a lot every day. We help & teach each other. That’s what alliances are for. We are a big alliance with big players, but there is one alliance, our fierce competition, that keeps us on our toes & will strike when they see any weakness. And that’s any player not shielded, at any given moment. So, no one is ever safe.
    Constantly upgrade, train troops & research. Research is so important. Work to keep your heroes as high as they’ll go & get to know them! Each one starts with 1 special “power” then it gains extra ones as they “star” up.
    MAKE SURE you have plenty of hospitals to take care of your troops!! Otherwise you lose them in battle. have 7 hospitals I think & I’m constantly upgrading them.
    Ok, that’s all from me!
    Good luck & happy gaming!

    • You can. I found the following under other, how to play the game

      Permanent State Teleport
      2020-10-12 02:29:56

      Please note: The Permanent State Move will be blocked when there’s any ongoing event (Ultimate Kill/Super Army Training/Outlaw Hunt/SVS) in your State or target State. The further details for the Permanent State Move Open Time will also be released on our event related Blogs. Please stay focused on them.

      【How to Move to Another State Permanently】

      To immigrate to another State permanently, you will need a certain amount of Permanent State Teleport items. The higher Force Rank in target State, the more Permanent State Teleport items it’ll cost.

      Ok, now let’s see how to move exactly:

      * STEP 1: Enter the State you would like to teleport

      * STEP 2: Choose a location in the target State and tap the ‘Move’ button.

      * STEP 3: The pop-up window shows the Teleport Items you’ll cost:

      If you have enough items, tap the ‘Use’ button and you can move your Town successfully. If you don’t have enough items, tap the ‘Use’ button and you can get the items through Special Packs.

      【Special Tips】

      * Conveyable Resources

      If the Resources you owned have Exceeded the Max Conveyable Resources, you can’t move your Town to the Target State. The maximum conveyable resources depend on the level of your Town Center. The higher the level of your Town Center, the more resources can be conveyed.

      * If you want to move to another State permanently, please make sure:

      1) Your Battle Fever is not activated;

      2) You have left your Alliance already (if there is one);

      3) You have recalled all your troops (if there is any);

      Have fun exploring it!

  10. How do I increase my force quickly without paying actual money? I’ve been doing loads of research, building and training but I only go up by about 100 force each time one of those things completes. It’s really frustrating because there are players with over 15million force who claim they haven’t spent any money on the game. I currently have 3.8million force. Is there a specific thing I have to research or what?

    Reply
    • Join A good alliance. Doing quests, events, carnivals. That’s the only way to grow fast without spending money.

      Reply
    • To get more troops: 1) While training them allow full time (or use speed up) 2) If you increase the
      resources listed you get more troops trained. Increase in the order shown as the most needed
      identified by a minus sign beside it or is a gold color instead of brown. For example if I am training
      defence calvary men and I want to increase the number of troops, look at the resource list. If grain is
      – and gold and is say -9k then go to items, then resource on left and mine above then go to grain and hit the 10K button. you will see troup amt increse by a lot. Keep giving til the color changes. then if you still want more troops give the resource that in now most in need, etc

  11. Some folks are frustrated because big players who spend tons of money hit them. Learn how to play and you will never lose troops or your sheriff. Join an alliance, be active, ask questions and the bullies can’t hurt you. Just like real life- bullies only pick on those that can’t defend themselves. Incarnacion – Minister of BRU2

  12. In answering some questions I have read from readers, I have these comments:
    1) Don’t ever judge a game by it’s ads. This game does NOT have decision making feature as the game ad have you believe. None of the games do, but the developers love to advertise this way.
    2) Everyone has their own way to play. Join an alliance and ask them. Then decide what you want to do to build your town.
    3) Food is eaten up as you train troops. Don’t worry about it. You can earn food easily. Your troops will NOT die if food is zero.
    4) I am a ftp, free to play, player but I do spend a little here and there, like 99c and $5. Some people love to spend $100 a pop, but that is not me. I grow slower is all.

  13. This game is like other war games, but different in that you attack minions and gang of bandits instead of dragons or monsters. State 8 is a great state as we are trying to not let bullies get away with continually zeroing small players. The game has a State vs State event, so we need all players to keep growing in order to compete and win for the state. There are many events that are fun and reward us with gold, materials and speedups, etc. I love this game over all the others I play. I have been playing alliance war games for over 10 years.

  14. Why are there no limits to attacks?
    It’s frustrating when 7 million power players always attack those with 1.5 million and less power.
    This causes a lot to stop the game.

    • Hi George – learn to camp your troops with sherif and use peace shields. Learn how to safeguard your silver and other resources. Learn how to do those things well no one can really hurt you. This is a game that rewards those who know how to defend themselves.

  15. Is there a way to unlock level 4 troops without doing hundreds of hours of building, or literally days on days of researching?? And is it possible to change states??

  16. This game seems more like cyber bullying than a fun game. He who sits on top spits on those on the bottom, and the language factor you would think a bunch of 12yr olds who just learned how to curse is playing this game. How do you level the playing field for the ones who just wanna have fun and are tired of being rolled over on by bullies????

  17. Where is the decision makeing game play? Like it is advertised on various websites. Example help the lady or turn her in.
    I have looked everywhere and i can’t find it.

    Thank you so much.
