Building a Blaster Cadet

Once your kids are logged in and on board the spaceship to Math Blaster, they are able to design their own Blaster Cadet, a personalized avatar that will run, jump and blast through the Math Blaster spaceship. Using the Molecular Modulator, kids have their choice of different hair styles, eyes, mouths, heights and even species for their Blaster Cadet! As your kids progress through the game and tackle the math training activities, they will earn merits and achievements. When they earn merits, your kids will climb the ranks in the Intergalactic Space Patrol (ISP), and their Blaster’s uniform will be upgraded for all of Math Blaster to see! To change the appearance of their Blaster at any time, players can visit the Molecular Modulator, located on their game toolbar.

Choosing a name

After designing their stellar Blaster Cadets, players are asked to select a name to identify their avatar in the Math Blaster Space Station. Don’t worry, though! We’ve designed our name selection tool specifically to ensure kids’ safety. Here at Math Blaster, players select a unique, silly name using our name modulator, a handy tool that is pre-populated with approved names like Allie SkyOrion. To change a Blaster Cadet’s name at any time, players can use their b-Pad (available at the bottom right of the game screen).

Exploring the world

Players can explore the world at MathBlaster.com by using the keyboard arrows. Remember, we are constantly adding new areas, games and features to the world at MathBlaster.com, so we encourage players to explore!

Earning merits and achievements

From participating in our ISP training activities, your kids will not only learn to protect the space station and far-away galaxies, but they will also build math skills. By playing the Math Blaster training activities located throughout the space station, players will be given merits and achievements for their hard work. As they progress, these merits will promote them to higher ranks in the ISP.

Adding B.F.F.s (Blaster Friends of the Future)

Exploring and learning are always more fun with friends! That’s why we built a safe and secure buddy system at MathBlaster.com to allow players to meet up with their classmates, neighbors and siblings inside the online world! If your kids have friends who are also playing at MathBlaster.com, simply go to the in-game B.F.F. booth on the Math Blaster bPad or the Parents section of MathBlaster.com to exchange and input buddy codes.

Remember, safety is the top priority at Math Blaster. We’ve designed a safe, kid-friendly system including multiplayer, chat and buddy list (B.F.F list) features. To select the perfect level of interaction for your kids, please use the controls in the Parents section of MathBlaster.com.

Chat at MathBlaster.com

We know that playing at MathBlaster.com can be even more fun with friends. To give kids the opportunity to interact with their classmates, siblings and teammates inside the world, we’ve designed a safe, kid-friendly system including multiplayer, chat and buddy list (B.F.F list) features. Since parents know their kids best, we ask that you use the controls in the Manage Kids page of MathBlaster.com’s Parents section to select the perfect level of interaction for your kids!

Multiplayer (with Safe Menu Chat)

Multiplayer allows your child to see other players in the game. Interaction between players is limited to emoticons, dance moves and Safe Menu Chat unless you enable Safe Type Chat. Safe Menu Chat allows players to communicate using only a limited list of questions, answers, greetings and phrases. This is our default and most restricted mode of chat.

Safe Type Chat

Safe Type Chat allows players to type in and send their own messages, as long as all parts of these messages appear in our database of approved words and phrases. Safe Type Chat must be turned on from the Manage Kids page of MathBlaster.com’s Parents section. Please note: Safety is our top priority at MathBlaster.com, and we are constantly improving and evolving our chat database, but messages that may be offensive to some players may get through the filters in Safe Type Chat mode.
