How Sifteo Cubes Work

Sifteo Cubes respond to your moves. Neighbor Sifteo Cubes side-by-side or top-to-bottom and watch them interact for totally unique gameplay. You can also shake, tilt, flip and press cubes for endless combinations. Your cubes operate as a single game interface, and can be played single player or multiplayer, depending on the game. Expand your play possibilities by downloading more games (using the Sifteo Desktop Software) and adding additional cubes.



Big tech in a little package

The ultra-compact Sifteo base runs the show. It stores your games, plays game music and sound effects, and wirelessly talks with the cubes. Purchase additional games using the Sifteo Desktop Software (you will need a Mac or PC with a USB 2.0 port) and they'll be synced automatically when you plug the Sifteo Base into your computer. Then toss your cubes and base into the included soft carrying case, and play on the go!

Tap that cube and you will walk to it.

It has all the fun and whimsy of my favorite Nintendo games from back in the day; great music, awesome retro graphics, and really funny dialog.

The math game is great for kids who could use some math facts practice.

As a parent I feel really good about giving Sifteo Cubes to my kid. They are much more physically active than the games she plays on our iPad, and they get her thinking as she solves puzzles in three dimensions. Plus, I can join in without disrupting her play (I got a few add-on cubes to make it easier to play together). She really enjoyed the original cubes as well. I'm giving her these new ones for Christmas. It's great that they made them portable so we can use them at restaurants and on the plane. I am thankful for the included carrying case and that there is no setup required. Easy is important as I already have a lot of devices to manage! I recommend this for kids who like technology, and parents who don't want their kids brains to rot. So happy to have found out about Sifteo! :)

My son loves the Sifteo Cubes (and so do I)!

The video games are played from one screen to the next so it's not just about playing but thinking through how to tilt, shift, neighbor and press different cubes, and you can add up to 12 cubes to make the games even more challenging. So far, we've stuck to the basic set because my son is 6-year-old, and I wanted him to have fun for his first few weeks. We will use our add-on cube once he's mastered the video games he has.

It's important to realized that the graphics aren't at the level of video games today. They remind me more of the games I played as a kid, but I think what the cubes lack in fancy graphics, they make up for in interactive-ness. Watching my son rearrange the blocks to move characters around or to match up colors and shapes and letters makes his time playing feel less like spaced-out screen time and more like playing logic games or interactive reading games.

I received Sifteo Cubes to facilitate my review.

An interesting idea, but the current crop of games just aren't that interesting.

The first difficulty is that, with only three cubes, the possibilities are pretty limited. I got a total of 12, but have not yet found a good use for more than six at a time. And the company tries to make sure that the games are playable with only three, which means that the games tend to be pretty simple.

One feature I find annoying is that the games have no rules with them. This means that, at the beginning, you spend most of your attention trying to figure out what it is that you're suppose to be doing. This is made more annoying by the fact that most of the games have some sort of irrelevant (and pointless) narrative to them--it takes a while to realize that there's no useful information to be had from the bits of tiny text that keep popping up.

Of the included games, Word Caravan is the best, but even it is a flawed game. In order to give the game a narrative arc (and perhaps some "educational" content) the longer words are grouped by language of origin. This simply means that the same sort of words appear together, and it also means that (even in the expanded version of the game) there simply aren't very many words to play. You'll quickly run out of words in the game, after which you'll struggle to find anything interesting among the other games.

Sandwich Kingdom is a simple maze game. I suppose it's not impossible that it becomes interesting at some point, but the lower levels are so tedious that I've never had the patience to get past them. Cube Buddies is beyond pointless. Chroma Splash is a mildly interesting puzzler, rather severely limited by the low number of cubes.

I've been playing and having my children and students play with Sifteo Cubes since the first generation cubes were released and they've always LOVED them. The cubes are flexible enough to keep my four year old son challenged with games that fit his learning level, and cool enough for my rising middle school daughter who likes the challenge of the word and math games. Adults find the games addicting too. They are fascinating because you manipulate the games by turning, tilting and placing the cubes together in different combinations no matter what game you are playing. It's all about slides, flips, turns and tilts. The games utilize simple stories or math concepts so they not only are fun, but are educational and developmental. The games get increasingly more difficult so the fun never stops. I can't recommend a better product that takes something as simple as a cube and turns it into a versatile, challenging, and fun toy for all ages.

I have purchased both the original and this updated version of the Sifteo system. Sifteo clearly has quality issues. Both systems had defective cubes. The first two times I requested a return it was handled in a reasonable amount of time. My latest set had a bad cube - which was replaced with ANOTHER bad cube. It has been almost three months of trying to get a replacement. Sarah at Sifteo assures me there will be a replacement sent every time I email them. i Just counted and there are NINE emails regarding this with no results. I am not a person prone to complaining or writing a negative review. In fact, this is my first negative review and I have purchased thousands of items on Amazon and on the internet. VERY FRUSTRATING.
