Pocahontas: Princess of the Powhatan
Older type of game
This game is just ok. It is an older type, too much dialogue. The same scenes and objects are repeated, and it is pretty boring. Other than that, it is a playable hidden object game which is not difficult. It just isn't fun.

Pocahontas very poor graphics
Sometimes the game does not have to be totally beautiful, but this was the poorest. Kind of like play paper dolls with the figures. Hidden objects were ok, but nothing great. Just nothing great about any of the scenes.

Not for Adventure Gamers
This is a Hidden Object game, with some history included. The storyline is spotty with bits and pieces thrown in, making it confusing to anyone not familiar with the actual events of that time. Dialog only serves to move the gamer from one HOS to the next. The graphics are not very good, and that distracts from the game. Under the heading, "All Genres," or "Browse Genres," I click on Adventure games, not Hidden Object games. In an adventure game, HOS should be scattered, and the objects should be things you need, to progress farther in the adventure. Multiple HOS, especially when they contain objects not pertinent to the adventure, quickly become tedious work, not fun. I do not recommend this game.

Not even for $2.99! But also, not the worst I have trialed.
I played the 60 minute trial.
Very basic 2D graphics.
Story seems to be a very poor representation of Pocahontas's life story. Click on bubbles to progress the dialog which can not be skipped. Dialog scenes remind me of Elementary School shoe box scenes, with the people glued to popsicle sticks, but that may even be better than this games graphics and story line. Story is choppy and hard to follow at times. Birds and bumble bees or flies shoot across the scene without even flapping their wings.
Music is calm instrumentals during most hidden object scenes, which I did enjoy. Some scenes the music was changed from the instrumental and unfortunately it was obnoxious .
HO scenes were very cluttered and often very difficult to find the items, due to either dark scenes or items placed same color on same color or just poorly illustrated items that were barely recognizable as the item listed. Once you had been sent to the same scene for the third time, with the same items in the very same places, just asking for a different list of items, obviously then, it was much easier to locate the items. Even the choice of objects that the developer used did not flow with the scene or the over all story as scenes included camels and hippos along with grim reaper ghosts and Michelangelo's "David".
This game often felt abrupt, cluttered and sometimes confusing. It did not draw you in and make you want to play the next scene or cause you to want to know what is going to happen next with the characters. For myself I am surprised I was able to stick it out the whole hour. I am not sure I would even recommend this game if it was free. I would probably just recommend turning the computer off and reading a good book instead of playing this game. There are far too many good to excellent games here on Big Fish Games for you to even waste your time playing this disappointing game.
For those who did enjoy this game, I am grateful that someone did. As always, you are the best judge of what you enjoy, so if it doubt, try it out for yourself.

One of the worst games I have ever tried. Would not want it as a gift. Sorry but I expected more.

NOT WORTH IT EVEN IF IT'S FREE
This is the worst game I've ever played. It isn't even good enough for kids. There are absolutely no graphics; the characters are no better than stick figures with a photo for the head. Pocahontas is more pale than any of the palefaces in the game. There are misspelled words in the story line and the story line does not do justice to this amazing woman. John Smith is so ugly and old, no young female would take a second look at him. The HOS where the same time after time, regardless of whether the location was Jamestown or London. A total waste of time. This game shouldn't even be offered anymore.
