When they say “learning is fun,” that’s usually a load of bulls**t. Everyone knows that elementary school kids would rather be blasting aliens, climbing trees, or snorting blow off of stripper’s backs.
But when it comes the popular PC learning game Math Blaster, fun always did enter the equation, sans gutter glitter and a girl named Candy. And now, Majesco is bringing the fun to the Nintendo DS as Math Blaster in the Prime Adventure! Learning is fun when dastardly robots control the galaxy and the only thing that can stop them is mathematics like addition, subtraction, and multiplication! The game even has a Four Player Battle Mode youngsters can bruise each other’s egos with their keen math skills.
Considering my long-standing history of poor math skills (one point for every time I convern MS Points to US dollars wrong in a story), I think I should pick up a copy of Math Blaster in the Prime Adventure when it hits this fall.
