Pocahontas, developed by Funcom, is a game based on the Disney animated film of the same name. The game is set in a North American forest where the heroine and main character lives with her tribe. The gameplay follows the movie’s plot but it also offers alternatives to some of the situations and events that happened in the movie. In the story, Pocahontas, the daughter of the tribal chieftain, is sent to watch and observe the English colonialists who have just arrived. On her way the main character meets one of the foreigners named John Smith, with whom she falls in love, earning the disapproval of her father and her tribe. The player must do the right thing and prevent a war from happening.
In this game, players assume the role of the heroine and Meeko, Pocahontas’ raccoon friend. Players are given different puzzles to solve before they can move to the next stage and advance the story. Players can switch between the two characters in order to accomplish different tasks and overcome obstacles. As players progress through the game, they earn special abilities from the animal spirits. These abilities include swimming, soaring, and running fast through the forest. These abilities enable the player to undertake the challenges in the more difficult stages of the game.
