In Math Blaster: Hyperblast 2, your child will be able to dodge obstacles, collect shields and blast his/her way through hordes of alien robots while solving math problems of varying degrees of difficulty.
Basic Math -Math Blaster: Hyperblast 2 offers many math lessons, each with 3 levels of difficulty. They include Addition, Subtraction, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Multiplication and Division, Fractions, and Standard Form. However, only the first lesson, Addition, is provided for free in the game’s demo. You’ll need to buy the full version to access the rest of the lessons.
The math problems do not appear immediately once your child is in the game. They will be able to enjoy the fun part of the game before meeting a “boss” robot that will start throwing questions after questions at them in the form of a quiz. The questions are multiple choice questions and your child simply need to tap on the correct answer once they have done the mental calculations needed.
The boss level lasts only 30 seconds or so and your child will need to answer as many questions as they can to earn extra “Blasts” (a powerful skill that can destroy all enemies within the vicinity). Each correct answer will also damage the boss robot while incorrect ones will reduce the health of your child’s rider.
Hand & Eye Coordination -The controls in the game mainly involve tapping to shoot or blast enemies and to pick an answer to a math question, as well as tilting the device to dodge obstacles and projectiles, and to, in general, move the hoverbike from side to side.
Reactions -This is particularly important to avoid obstacles as your child’s avatar flies through the tunnels in the game. During the boss level, if the boss robot’s health is above 0 at the end of the 30 seconds, your child will also need to rely on his/her reflexes to avoid the projectiles that are released by the boss.
Planning Ahead -Keeping the rider and his Cycle intact is crucial in order to keep playing the game. Your child will need to plan ahead and steer their rider away from harmful objects while picking up as many shields as they can to replenish the rider’s health. All of these require some planning. They will have to decide whether or not a shield is worth the risk, for example; or when they should use their Blast ability since this ability has limited uses.
Less Educational Aspects
Competitively Motivating -At the end of every game, your child will be given an option to “Challenge” a fellow friend to beat his/her high score. This is a great way to foster a competitive spirit while using that very spirit to encourage both your child and their opponent to do better next time around.
Creativity -There’s a section in the game where your child can customize his/her rider, Cycle and even the weapon used. However, all of these items require gems which can only be bought using real money.
Spending and Saving -This brings us to this valuable lesson – spending and saving. If you’ve decided to pour some real money into the game, your child will need to learn how to best spend the gems that they now have.
