Test Your Mettle in Max’s Top 5 Games

Being an all-star Blaster requires skill, determination, and courage.  While developing these traits can take time, your job as a Blaster is not over once you attain these characteristics.  In order to do your best protecting the galaxy, you will need to keep practicing and honing your abilities in order to stay sharp.  Luckily, Max picked five exciting games you can play to keep yourself in shape.  Head over to the Math Academy to find these helpful activities.

1Test both your physical and mental strength in Alien Wrangler.  Jump on the back of a monstrous alien and solve math equations to remain balanced.  Work quickly to stabilize against the alien’s forceful bucking and establish control.

2Angle Attack is the perfect game to help you acquire the right balance of speed and accuracy.  Keep your head on a swivel as hostile aliens attack from all sides and calculate the angle they are approaching to keep them at bay.  Be quick since the alien will reduce precious health should they reach you.

3Practice your firing abilities from a different perspective in B-Force Blaster.  Learn to identify correct answers and boost your reflexes to pick out targets that disappear quickly.  Thrusting yourself into B-Force Blaster’s fast-paced action will speed up your problem solving skills as you navigate through clutter to find the correct answers.

4Hyperblast is a great way to work on your piloting skills as you travel on a lightning-fast vehicle.  Dodge obstacles and collect power-ups in a narrow passageway, defeating robots with your math skills along the way.

5Red Alert: it all comes down to this moment.  Put all the skills you have learned and mastered to the test as you defend the space station from a barrage of asteroids and space debris.  Pick your targets and blow them to bits before they smash into the space station.  As more objects come your way, you will draw upon the sharpened reflexes and accuracy you gained from your training to protect the space station.  Watch the shield meter and destroy oncoming projectiles to save the day.

Training to be a skilled Blaster takes time and effort but Max wants to help you become the best you can be.  Take advantage of these games he has picked out for you to test your math knowledge and other skills like speed and accuracy.  Doing so will not only help you rise through the ranks of Math Blaster’s finest, but ensure the galaxy’s safety as well.

An Eye For An Eye! Return The Favor To Your Friends!

Your B.F.F.s have had your back. They’ve cared for and cleaned your Mutts while you were out saving the Space Port during Red Alerts and beating those menacing alien bosses in HyperBlast. Now is your chance to pay them back! Give them a little gift after they’ve cared for your Mutt!

Check your Mutt Notifications to see who has cared for your Mutt while you were gone. After you’ve gone through the list of your Blaster buddies, send them something special and reward them helping you out.

Sharing is caring, so give a thank you to your friends!

Kind and courteous are just two traits of a model Blaster. After all, we’re all on one team, the I.S.P.! Repay your Blaster buddies and you might get a reward for watching someone else’s Mutt too! Try it out and let Max know what you think of the new Mutt Pod reward system!

The Math Academy Is in Danger!

Have your children had the chance to visit the newly commissioned Math Academy? If they have, then they’ve seen it’s all new, unique design and state of the art equipment. The ISP couldn’t be more excited about the latest modifications, but, unfortunately, it means the area is highly vulnerable to enemy attacks.

In his efforts to protect the Academy, Max has been on the lookout for any signs of invasion. He has already intercepted communication between distant planets that discuss plans to strike. In an attempt to hold up a defense, Max has added Red Alert to the Math Academy and is asking for your kids’ help!

When the red lights start flashing and the emergency horns begin blaring, it’s time for Blasters to suit up and save the station.

Red Alert! Red Alert!

Your children will need to run into the Red Alert portal and jump into the captain’s seat. Then, they’ll be challenged to blast all the foreign objects that come hurling at the Space Station.

Use the arrow keys to move and the space bar to shoot.

Will your kids be able to save the Math Academy? Tell them to play Red Alert today!
