Game modes[edit | edit source]

There are 3 game modes to play, which can be launched from the main menu. All of the games in the suite are single-player and support difficulty options that change up various aspects of the gameplay to make it more challenging.

Purble Pairs[edit | edit source]

Purble Pairs is a pattern recognition and memory game. The goal of the game is to clear the grid of cards in the fewest turns possible by finding and matching pairs of cards. As the player progresses through each level, the size of the grid increases, the pictures on the cards become more smaller and a time limit is enforced. If the time limit elapses, the game is over. If the player manages to complete all of the levels before time runs out, the player will win.

Comfy Cakes[edit | edit source]

Comfy Cakes is a hand-eye coordination game. The goal of the game is to fill orders in a bakery by assembling cakes that match the cake on the TV screen by controlling the conveyor belt to various stations to apply the elements of the cake. If the cake does not match the cake shown on the screen, the player will receive a penalty and the cake will be thrown away. If the player sends too many incorrect orders, the game is over. If the player manages to successfully send a certain number of orders, the player will win.

Purble Shop[edit | edit source]

Purble Shop is a code-breaker game. The goal of the game is to use logical reasoning to guess the features of each Purble that is randomized by the computer. The player can choose from an assortment of colors and a color can be used once, several times or not used. On higher difficulties, the player attempts to deduce or guess the right feature colors in a limited number of guesses. If the player guesses incorrectly too many times, the game is over. If the player manages to successfully guess a certain number of all Purbles, the player will win.
