U.B. Funkeys is the exciting computer game that transports you to the fun and funky world of Terrapinia - a virtual world and home to the Funkeys. Each new Funkey that you collect gives you access to a new zone, and new games within. Play each Funkeys game and earn coins to buy cool new items to customize your Funkeys crib. Once you have it decked out, upload it to share with your friends and family. But watch out! In this virtual world, Master Lox and his evil henchmen are lurking about; waiting to steal your coins and stop you. Unlock the Funkeys Zones. Play the Funkeys Games... and defeat Master Lox, bringing peace to the Funkeys!

Character Bios:

Lotus
Lotus are extremely calm & peaceful Funkeys and have an intense connection to the planet - the Great Mother Terrapin. Lotus are friends to all wildlife and have the ability to communicate with many different types of animals; some say they can even talk to trees.

With such a natural bond with the environment, it seems odd that the Lotus reside in the heart of Funkeys Town. Could this be the reason for the broken heart? Then again, maybe it is their strong bond with environment that holds all of Funkeys Town together.

Either way, the Lotus stay cool in all situations, even Master Lox and his evil henchmen don't get the Lotus too worried; their expressions never change.

Deuce
Fond of all things hip and trendy, the Deuce set the standards for cutting edge culture. In fact, the phrase "What the Deuce" means what's hot and "That's Deuce" means that's cool.

The Deuce love music but not that snooty, high culture opera that the Glub sing. The Deuce like rockabilly and anything that's fast and you can dance to.

The Deuce are notorious pranksters. The most famous was when they tricked the Glub into wearing elaborate costumes with big platform shoes, rhinestone sunglasses and jeweled hats for their performance before Parliament and the Queen. She was not amused.

Despite getting on the nerves of many Funkeys at one point or another, everyone wants to be Deuce.

    Very good game my son is hooked and it is teaching him to navigate the computer he finds some games too easy and others a real challenge and absolutly loves it when he wins a trophy or a piece of gold to put in his cabane.
    Should limit only an hour a day though, clever people who thought of it as it really is fun keys and you get so hooked you want to buy all teh characters to entre more andmore games and add to your personal cabane.

     soooo funkey

    UB Funkeys are Great. They are the best game for the PC and they are going to be THE game to get this Christmas! They are for any age from about 6 up, my little sister likes playing and so does my Mum! You get a big Funkey (the hub) that plugs into the USB port of your pc and then there are loads of other other smaller Funkey characters to collect, which sit on the shoulders of the hub (really cute). You play the game, creating a virtual world with different areas and games for each of the different types of Funkey. You have your own Crib which you decorate and fill with different items you pick up along the way as you play the game. Its really fab and really addictive and all my friends want one!

     Funkeys are Soooooooo Cool!!

    Funkeys are great. Firstly they are so easy to use. Just load up the disc and then insert Funkey into USB port when told to do so.... then welcome to the wonderful world of Funkeys!!!
    There are lots of worls to explore and play games. The more games you play the more coins you earn to decorate your crib!! Each Funkey has a different crib and you can even save them to share with friends!!
    Each Funkey has its own personality and likes and dislikes. They even come in "rare" varieties so you can just keep collecting them!! Each Funkey opens up new worlds and new games so the best bit is that you'll never get bored!! This is going to be the number one "must have" for christmas (in my opinion!!) Everyone at school is on about them !!

     disappointing

    After reading rave reviews of these, I decided to get my daughters some for Christmas.
    The software wouldn't install, the hub wasn't recognised...I actually bought a second one to save time on a replacement but this failed to get off the ground too.
    The help on the website was useless, I downloaded the patch, that didn't work, I re-installed everything. Trying different combinations of re-booting my PC, running the patch before, during and after the failed installations...nothing worked. So I am returning the lot.
    We are all very disappointed.
    The spec's say it is compatible with Vista...I even tried all the diferent compatibility settings for running the software, still nothing.
    My daughters (and I) are very disappointed with these.
    Am trying to locate some of the 2nd series to see if they work, but they are not out in the U.K. yet. Apparently Series 3 is coming this year in the U.S.A. Looks like the U.K. market gets treated as 2nd class consumers again.
