Many PC games catered to children seek to help them develop cognitive skills and grow their understanding of various concepts during the gameplay.

Purble Place is such a title, or more accurately, a set of three mini-games, that focus on memory, pattern recognition, hand-eye coordination, and deduction. It does so through colourful, adorable animations, as well as simple premises.

Game types

You can access all three mini-games that comprise Purble Place as standalone apps from the home screen. There, you can also adjust the level of difficulty. You can choose it depending on the child’s age and experience with such a puzzle.

All three are suitable for very young children to play and represent a budget-friendly alternative to interactive toys.

Purble Pairs

The first title has the player connecting pairs of symbols on a panel, which boosts pattern recognition and memory, similar to Patterns Quiz and such web games.

Comfy Cakes

The second focuses on hand-eye coordination, putting the child in a kitchen to add ingredients and make cakes. You may think of Burger Maker, but with even less to consider.

Purble Shop

Finally, the third type is a deduction game based on colours. It also integrates some numbers and wholesome, engaging graphics.

Overall, neither of these games is much on its own. Put in a package like this, though, they represent an excellent bundle for learning while having fun. The imagery is vivid and easy to navigate, making Purble Place a fun and informative experience for free.

Quite wholesome

All three games included in Purble Place feature colourful graphics, enjoyable premises, and most importantly, an educational purpose. While the set doesn’t work well with adult audiences, as the games are less sophisticated than even puzzles such as Minesweeper, it’s an excellent way to increase the value of your child’s screen time.
