Pocahontas is one of the most beloved characters of all times. The game was also very famous especially amongst young girls. 1990s was dominated by Sega games and this was one of those games. Like all other Sega games, this game also offered a very fun gaming experience. This game beautifully capitalizes on the popularity of Pocahontas. The Disney label also attracted a lot of young kids towards this game.

Initial Release

The 1990s gaming era was dominated by Sega and Disney games. During the 1990s both Sega and Disney collaborated on a number of different games out of which Pocahontas is one. This amazing game was initially released in 1996 by Sega, THQ , Disney and Black Pearl Software.

Gameplay

The game is based on Disney’s animated movie of the same name. The inspiration for both the game and the movie was the real life Pocahontas. The real Pocahontas was a Native American, who went through a lot of hardships in life. Though some refute the authenticity of a historical figure by the name of Pocahontas, it has no doubt left a mark on history. The movie was released almost a year before the game. The game follows the character of Meeko (who is a raccoon and like a sidekick to Pocahontas) and Pocahontas herself. They both have to fight against different enemies and overcome different obstacles put in their way. The more you overcome the obstacles the better your level gets. The player can also gain a lot of new abilities once they come in contact with different animals on their route. There is also a non playable character by the name of Flit that accompanies the players. The player can switch between Meeko and Pocahontas. There are no multiplayer versions of the game and only one person can play it at a single time. The game is compatible with both Sega Genesis and Game Boy.

The game has a side view appearance and gameplay which is quite common for games from that respective era. So if you are a Pocahontas lover and you love the history and tales of Pocahontas then you would definitely love playing this game. Old Sega games are still played to this day and many gamers who idealize Pocahontas or treat her as their role model would definitely want to play this game even in the modern gaming era. Well, who can leave a chance of playing such an iconic character both in the movie and in real life.

Reception

When the game was released it was very well received. There were critics who did not like how the controls were panned out however the game experience and graphics actually made the game worthwhile.

Rating

The game is fairly simple and has been criticized for its controls. However for a game released in 1996 , this game does have really good graphic. We would give it a moderate 3/5 rating for its fun and entertaining gameplay and exceptional graphics respective to the year of the game.

Game Reviews

THQ's Game Boy port of the recently released 16-bit Pocahontas should please hardcore fans of the film who only own portables, but it shouldn't expect to find much of a wider audience.

The Game Boy version is set up roughly like its 16-bit counterpart. You can play as both Pocahontas and her raccoon companion Meeko as they try to put a stop to a war between the natives and the white men from across the sea.

The gameplay is slow and stilted, even for a Game Boy game, and after a while you'll start wondering why you aren't playing Tetris Blast instead. My advice? Stick to the 16-bit version.

    I missed out on this game back in the day and i really missed out, This is a supurb puzzle game with some unique concepts and features which make it stand out even now, But sad it has only four levels, It only took me two and a bit hours to complete, But well worth download because i will certainly would recommend this to all, And i know i'll play it again someday for sure...

    Well to get the wolf's skills you'll need to beat it in a race to the cave, Or though it can be very tricky when it comes up to the cliff that is to far apart to land on the other side the tree should help you make the jump, But be fast!.
