Disney's Pocahontas is a platform game based on the 1995 film of the same name. The Sega Genesis/Mega Drive version was developed by Funcom on contract with Disney and was released on January 1, 1996. It was followed by a later version for the Game Boy developed by Tiertex Design Studios and released on June 10, 1996, nearly a year after the film's premiere. A Super Nintendo Entertainment System version of the game was under development around the same time as the Mega Drive/Genesis version, but was canceled due to development being too far behind to coincide with the Mega Drive/Genesis release.
In the game, the player plays as Pocahontas and Meeko, switching between the two frequently to overcome obstacles, with the help of NPC Flit. Along the way, as Pocahontas, the player gains various new abilities from various animal spirits by helping them. The game follows the plot of the film, but with many variations in situations and events.
