Talking about the Inbento, when you open the app for the first time, a picture of a cat appears. A scrolling mechanism allows you to swipe from right to left, which further exhibits a number of photos. The mentioned photos seem to be casual glimpses of everyday activities.

As the player finishes scrolling through, the main gaming screen is then displayed. When the game starts, an ongoing piece of music is played throughout the game.

As it progresses, a notebook-like register appears on top of the screen. Now, the player has to follow the instructions that looks like to be a recipe, from the register. You are asked to drag and drop a number of items from the bottom of the screen to a container in the middle.

The lunchbox needs to be filled in exactly the same manner that is visible in the recipe book. Also, the player can change the orientation of the items before picking them up. This allows for the adjustment of the food items according to the puzzle’s requirements.

Further, the left side of the notebook manual features a home button, as well as buttons that allow a user to take a step back. The stepping back becomes useful when the puzzle pieces need to be rearranged. Additionally, there are two different step-back buttons. One allows for all the items to be replaced. On the other hand, the second button just removes the most recent item from the lunchbox.
