Purble Place is composed of three educational games for children (Purble Pairs, Comfy Cakes, and Purble Shop) for entertainment and lessons (colors, shapes, and logic and pattern recognition). Purble Pairs is a matching game where tiles from a board are paired off and are removed if they match correctly. Comfy Cakes is a game of creating cakes as ordered and shown on screen where the player must choose the correct pan size, batter, icing and other materials. Purble Shop is a game of logic where the player determines the features (hair, nose, mouth, etc.) of a Purble character hiding behind a curtain.  

To start Purble Place, the player clicks open the Game folder, clicks the Start button, clicks All Programs, click Games, click Games Explorer and double-click Purble Place. In the game proper, the player selects any one of the three games.  From the menu, there are game options to select. There are boxes to check (or uncheck) if, for instance, sound is desired, and other wanted (or unwanted) adjustments.

The Options is also used to save the game. This is also where the player chooses the game level (Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced) desired. On playing any game the first time, the player will have to choose the game level.
