Get Credits for Learning!

Learning is not only good for a Blaster’s brain, it’s good for a Blaster’s wallet, too! Now, when your children play math games in Math Blaster they will earn credits, which they can use to buy cool new items like furniture for their pod or color kits for their monster mutts. As they move through the levels of each game they play, their credit earnings increase. So the higher they go, the more credits they will receive. Below are our top four favorite places to earn credits and we think your children will agree!

Can your kids beat the clock in the fast-paced game of Bolt Cruncher? They must energize the robots before it’s too late! They’ll need to match fractions to other equal fractions, convert fractions to percentages and decimals, or match real life objects to their correct 3D shape.

When playing HyperBlast Training, your children have to avoid or destroy obstacles to get points. At the end of each round, they must face the math monster and select the correct answers to addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division equations. The more equations they solve correctly, the more blasts they earn!

Oozami teaches place values and counting money. Your kids have to turn on the switches to the correct answers, while trying not to plummet into the ooze below.

In Zapper Turret Training your children will save the universe from asteroids! This game requires them to work out different addition, subtraction, multiplication or division problems and shoot down the asteroid with the correct solution.

After your kids have thoroughly worked their brains to earn so many credits, they can go to the My Pod Store or Monster Mutt Accessories. They’ll discover the benefits of working hard as they pick out exciting new gizmos and gadgets! Each bed, lamp, and color kit they buy will represent a newly acquired math skill.

Learning addition let this Blaster add furniture like this bed to his pod!

Encourage your children to play a game in Math Blaster today and everyone will win! You’ll be happy they’re learning and your kids will be happy they’re earning!

Breaking Monster Mutt News, Direct from Max!

We’ve noticed how much your kids have loved their monster mutts! So Max and the rest of the Math Blaster team have been thinking, “What would make monster mutts even more exciting for all these Blasters?” At first we were completely spaced out, but after putting our heads together we came up with this awesome answer…COLOR KITS! We’re sure that your kids will be as excited as we are when they hear the news! And with Halloween around the corner, it’s just the right time of year for your kids to disguise their mutts in a new look!

Have your kids head over to the Monster Mutt Accessories Machine today!

These new Monster Mutt Color Kits will allow your kids’ Blasters to change the color of their Grubbles, Eye-clopses, or Ickasaurs. Using the credits they’ve been gathering up while off training with games like B-force Blaster, your kids can buy these cosmically cool color kits at the new Monster Mutt Accessories machine. Have them come on over to the Monster Mutt Food dispenser in the Park and they’ll be sure to notice the new Mutt Accessories machine nearby. Coming from the Spaceport all they’ll need to do is enter the Monster Mutt Rescue station and head straight over to the Park. Before they know it their mutts will be looking… out of this world!

Your kids have a ton of great options to look through!

Once they’ve purchased a kit, it’ll be stored in their handy Monster Mutt inventory. To pull this menu up, have them simply click on their monster mutt. They’ll then be given the choice to play, care, or DRESS UP their mutt. It’ll be as easy as space travel for your kids’ Blasters to figure out!

So be sure to tell your kids that color kits have arrived and its time to start accessorizing those mutts! Max is already so excited to get some feedback. Let us know what they think of this latest monster mutt feature!
