A woman must travel to the American past to save the inhabitants of a western town, threatened by the criminal fugitive called Black Jack.
Wild West Quest 2 is another hidden object game, like the first title of the series. Most of the time, the goal is to find all the objects listed at the bottom of the screen, on locations around the town. The hint button shows the exact position of one of the required objects. It is unlimited, but takes some time to recharge after use. Collecting the Sheriff's stars, hidden throughout the game, reduce the time before the hint button is available again.
Between stages, a jigsaw puzzle mini-game appears where a location screen is overlaid with a grid, segmenting it in several pieces. The player has to click on the matching tiles shown at the bottom of the screen, replacing the list of objects. Other standard variations of gameplay also appear, where the screen is split in two similar images and the player has to click on the differences, and places where the objective is to collect several instances of the same object.
