Purble Place


Purble Place is a set of casual games from 2007 that came included with Windows Vista. However, Windows XP and some newer versions support the program, so you can still get a copy of the Purble Place download files and install them.

As mentioned, it is a package of three mini-games, each independent of the other. You can access each game from the menu option. The titles are Purble Pairs, Comfy Cakes, and Purble Shop.



Purble Pairs is a pattern recognition game and is the Purble Place game’s take on classic match-two games. The goal is to clear a field of cards by revealing two cards of the same image on the same turn. It comes with grids that you need to clean, such as 5×5, 6×6, and 8×8 grids. The grids increase in number to make the Purble Place gameplay more challenging. Also, the more you progress, the more the images are displayed. The game offers a Sneak Peak option, which helps reveal all the remaining cards.

Comfy Cakes, meanwhile, is a hand-eye coordination game. Here, you will manage a bakery, where you must assemble a cake to match an order. The cakes come in various shapes, flavors, icings, and other decorations. Depending on the order, you can make a plain one-tier cake or a multilayered one. You can also decorate it lavishly, as long as it matches the order. Failure to meet the exact order will result in a penalty. Once you send an incorrect order three consecutive times, the game is over.

Finally, the Purble Shop is a mathematics test concealed as a code-breaker game. It will display five features: a hat, a nose, a set of eyes, and clothing items. The game hides these items from the players. Choose from an assortment of colors and deduce the correct color of the feature in the fewest number of moves possible. In the beginning, there will be three features with three possible colors. The number of possible combinations will then increase as you move to the intermediate and advanced levels.
