In addition to the storybook aspects, there are four games you can play. These can either be accessed from Grandmother Willow's screen or by clicking the pictograph of children playing during the play through the story section.
Hoops and Arrows has players testing their archery skills before Koocoum. Players must shoot the hides stretched on the hoops with their arrows. The mouse changes the direction of the arrow. At higher difficulty levels, the hoops move. After all the hoops are shot, the game begins again.
In Spearing Berries, players play Flit. You must spear the berries before Meeko eats them all by flying over to the berries while they are in the air and clicking on them with the mouse. At higher difficulty levels, the height of the thrown berries varies, as does the speed with which they fall.
In Where's Meeko? Players must help Percy find Meeko, who has sneaked on board the settlers' ship. Players must click on various boxes, barrels, and crates to see where that wily raccoon will show up next. As soon as you have found him, he hides again. There are no levels to this game.
Finally, in Find the Animals, Chief Powhatan tells you to listen with your heart to find where the animals live. Players must click on an animal Petroglyph, then click on an area where they think the animal lives.
