Gery is a 16-year old princess. One day, her father tells her about a tradition in their family: each time a princess turns sixteen, the king sends her to a tower, where she will remain locked until she solves all its puzzles and proves herself worthy of her royal title.

Princess Confusion is a puzzle game. It has two modes, Story and Game. In the Story mode, the princess has to complete the puzzle rooms in a specific order, while the Game mode allows the player to choose any of the available 24 levels.

Each level is a top-down room with a black hole and several balls marked with different letters scattered around. The goal of the game is to sink all the balls marked with the letter N into the hole. The only available action in the game is to push a ball; the princess can do it simply by simply walking near it and keep pressing the direction button.

Naturally, getting the N balls into the hole involves more than just pushing them; typically, they are inaccessible in their starting position. In order to move them into a spot from which the princess can push them, the player has to manipulate other balls. Balls marked U, D, R, and L (up, down, right, and left) change the gravity center of the level. When pushed into the black hole, they make all other balls roll into the corresponding direction. The princess herself loses the ability to walk in the opposite direction once the corresponding ball has been sunk. Balls marked B explode when the princess pushes them. The objective is to figure out the correct combination and order of moves (sometimes quite complex) to create appropriate conditions for sinking the N balls into the hole.
