(what this means)

At a Glance

Ages: 8 and up
Requires: Television, Philips screwdriver and 4 AA batteries

The U-Dance encourages your child to get off the couch and practice real dance moves.View larger.


No controller needed. U-Dance uses Motion Tags that slip over your shoes.
Put Your Best Foot Forward
Tiger Electronics' U-Dance interactive video game encourages your child to get off the couch and practice real dance moves like sweeps, jumps, slides, and crossovers without the need for a mat or any other game controller. Instead, the U-Dance uses lightweight Motion Tags that slip over your child's shoes. The reflective surface on the Motion Tags is read by the Motion Tower placed next to your television and follows the movements of your child's feet.

Set-up is easy. Simply use a Philips screwdriver to insert 4 AA batteries into the battery compartment located on one of the three tower pieces, snap the three tower pieces together, and place it in front of your television. Next, connect the provided AV cables to any regular television set and slide the On/Off switch on the back of the Motion Tower to "on." Finally, slip the elastic bands of the Motion Tags over your child's shoes so that they are positioned on top of each foot. Be sure to keep pant cuffs out of the way and avoid wearing shoes with reflective detailing as this might cause interference between the Motion Tower and the Motion Tags. Now you're child is ready to get down!

Get Into The Groove
The U-Dance provides three modes of dance-oriented game play for one or two players. In the beginning, your child may find the foot-eye coordination a little difficult to get used to. So, to warm up and get familiar with the game, your child may want to start with one of two mini-game modes.

In the Lounge mode your child can practice moving with the Motion Tags by kicking lounge lizards out of the spotlight indicated on the screen. In the Workout mode they must step on diamonds while avoiding hazards on a moving treadmill. While both of the mini-game modes are entertaining, neither is as fun and exciting as the main game mode, the Dance Floor.

In this mode, your child may choose to warm up with a basic tutorial provided at the beginning of the game. Once your child has completed the tutorial they will be sent back to the main Dance Floor menu where they can choose from three difficulty levels and several upbeat songs before heading to the dance floor. On the dance floor the goal is to match foot movements with the target feet on the screen. As the song progresses, your child's progress is scored for accuracy and timing by the Dance Meter. If they successfully dance their way through a song, they will have their overall performance scored by the judges. If not, they may choose to repeat the same song or choose another from the main menu. As your child makes their way through the various songs and different levels of difficulty their performance can be saved so they can review their progress.

What's in the Box
Motion Tower, Motion Tags, and AV cables.

This game rocks. It tracks your feet like magic--however you move, that's what you see on the screen. The dancing starts easy, and gets really tough on the hard levels. It really gets you dancing, even someone like me who can't dance at all. We've tried Dance Dance Revolution, but that doesn't feel at ALL like dancing, this one really does feel like dancing. You actually need to sweep your feet, jump, cross...My 7 year old loves it, and it's also really great exercise, it got me sweating. Even my 4 year old can play one of the games that comes with it (the funny lizard one). The song selection is great too--there are new songs I don't know (yes, I'm a Dad), but some great older songs like ABC (Jackson 5). I would never spend the money on a Wii, but this is totally worth it. It takes a little bit to really get used to the menus, but once you do it's totally intuitive. When we hit the rainy season, this is going to be a great way to keep the kids exercising (without them knowing it...)

Ok, you've seen trailer here & it's also on youtube com as well as now 3 videos showing hard level in action & 1 video showing the box, tutorial, easy & medium modes. Search "U-Dance game" on youtube. Also is "Chris Brown on Ellen" from megami284 & the end part is him using it on EASY: youtube com/watch?v=YeQmddHX24Q

Plastic structure: It's basic hard plastic in 3 pieces that you click together. Once put together, it's VERY hard to pull apart w/the plastic tabs (manual says not to), luckily it's very small considering. It take 4 AA batteries & the lid has a small screw, not a tab closure. There is no DC plug out. The included a/v plugs are sealed into the unit w/place for it to wind around for storage. They are composite yellow for video & white for MONO sound which plugs directly to the TV. You cannot use any other cable for better a/v. The unit has a simple on/off slider switch on the back. The sensors are simple, stretchy soft fabric straps even for bare feet w/simple grey colored semi-reflective octagon top. I'm surprised it's that simple & it works great/perfect.
Video/Audio - Very simple graphics, but great choices considering all the memory/programing is somewhere small in the plastic housing. The background dancers on are a loop, but they are good choices & you don't notice while you're concentrating on the feet graphics. Knowing which is your feet & the ones you are suppose to step on is very easy to see. The background colors are bright & positive w/o being so colorful you can't see where you are suppose to go or where you are at the time. The menu is very simple & you step & hold on the "buttons" on screen to make your selection. It can do up to 12 profiles using 3 initials & it has 2 player option (take turns).

Ok, first off let me say, thanks to Hasbro because I don't have a lot of money to buy a Nintendo Wii! So this is sooo great. I'm a huge fan of Dance Dance Revolution, so this was right up my alley! U Dance is sooo fun and user friendly lol I got it last night at target for 74.99. I mean come on...whats 10cents? Anyhoo, my friends were with me and I hooked up to my TV, we were laughing and making fun of each other, because we looked crazy but it was soooo much fun!!

Also, I saw Chris Brown advertise this on The Ellen Degeneres show and I immediately fell in love because I haven't the money for a Wii yet. So thanks to Chris Brown too! His 'Run It' song is on there as well as Rihanna's 'Please Don't Stop the Music'. Balls of fun people!!

The music is up to date, a bit, but then there's some old school MC Hammer "Can't Touch This' and Jackson 5 'ABC' on there, I'm 21 by the way and I can recall all the music on there. I recommend this, simply because it's fun, my friends and I were hanging out and having fun, plus all 3 of us worked up a sweat!!! lol It was great.

If I'm wrong someone tell me I'm wrong...but I know I'm right...this game rocks my socks!! lol BUY IT!! What's a little splurge in life...lol

Ok, admittedly I haven't played this myself, but there are several aspects that are not mentioned in the article description or other reviews, but on reviews on other sites. I feel this is good information the buyer would want to know:

The Good:
Udance is great for creativity; I love the idea of no dancemat, and the tracking is quite good, since they censors are on your shoes, and you can do more steps (such as sidestep, slide, etc).
There are several original songs, and the celebrity endorsement by Chris Brown can vouch for those original hits and the game's quality.
It's easy to set up.
The sales are doing very well, vouching for this game's success.

The Bad:
While there are some original songs, others are not.
There is a total of twelve songs on this game. (For comparison, DDR has around 60-75 songs a game.)

Good or Bad:
Since this game is it's own system; you will have to have this device taking up lots of space for only one game (as far as we know at the moment), but you also don't need another system to play it.
Three levels of play; no more, no less.
