Game of the Week: Oozami

MBGoTW-OozamiIn our Game of the Week, Max decided it was time to return to the bubbling, slimy chambers of Oozami. Many Cadets have ventured into these highly restricted parts of Spaceport, but few have escaped the growing slime before time runs out. To do this, you not only have to be sharp on your feet, but also wise in your mathematics. For this week, see if you can get some extra place value practice by taking on Max’s mission in Place Value Voyager. Succeeding in your Oozami training will help keep you in top shape for defending Spaceport in your Red Alert missions and give you some extra Credits to spend at the Spaceport Stores.

Escape the Ooze: Oozami

A skilled Blaster has a rare blend of intellect and quick reaction times.  Put your math skills and reflexes to the test by venturing into Oozami.  Locked in a chamber with deadly ooze rising to fill the room, correctly answer math problems to unlock the chamber doors.  Navigate your way to the top using stationary and mobile platforms, dodging enemies along the way.  In order to conquer this thrilling game, let’s investigate the finer details of Oozami.

MB 1Before entering the chamber, choose one of three topics: Place Value Voyager (emphasizing place value), Tenths and Beyond (focusing on place value with decimals), and Magnetic Money (identifying a certain amount of money using various combinations of coins).  Each topic has four or five lessons to choose from and players can select the difficulty setting (easy, medium, or hard) that best suits their abilities.  The difficulty setting will affect the speed of moving platforms, the number and speed of enemies, and how challenging problems are to solve.

MB 2

In order to complete a lesson, locate the correct answer on screens located throughout the chamber and press the switch.  Once you have activated enough switches, you will be able to exit the room.  Answering incorrectly will result in a loss of points.  In addition to answering questions correctly, you can gain points by collecting food scattered throughout the level.  Be cautious as you jump from one platform to the next as being hit by enemies will cause you to lose points and enemies can even knock you off your platform.  Finally, as you work your way from one platform to the next in search of the correct answer, be careful not to touch the ooze!  Falling into the ooze will result in the loss of a precious life.  Losing all three lives will end the game.

MB 3While many young Blasters attempt to master Oozami, only a few are able to join the ranks of the elite.  Try your hand at all three topics and work your way up from an Oozami novice to an unrivaled expert.  Hone your math skills and reflexes in this enthralling game to prove you are one of the Intergalactic Space Station’s finest Blasters.

Your training to be the Intergalactic Space Station’s best Blaster does not have to end when you log off your computer.  Try out fun worksheets on place value,  decimals, and money to keep your skills sharp.  After putting in so much hard work, everyone will know the universe is in good hands.

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!
