Product Description

The game's story is a simple rescue mission, centering on the efforts of Blasternaut to retrieve Spot from the clutches of the malicious "Trash Alien," who, apparently, litters out of sheer spite. The garbage he leaves behind consists primarily of empty containers and bad food, though coil-springs, boots and fish skeletons are also present. In the opening scenes, Spot and Blasternaut are preparing for a journey aboard their rocket-like spaceship, only to find that the ship is not functional. Blasternaut, jumping to conclusions, sends Spot to repair a mechanism known as the "polytronic combustion regulator" and Spot reluctantly begins repairs, while Blasternaut goes below deck. As Spot works, the Trash Alien flies by, captures Spot and departs, leaving garbage everywhere. Blasternaut, upon discovering this, contacts his superior officer, Galactic Commander, and notifies her of the situation. Galactic Commander immediately identifies the criminal and sends Blasternaut on a mission of four objectives.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple plot; great education November 8, 2009
Math Blaster: Episode I - In Search of Spot is a decent educational PC game. It has a well-thought-out story, excelent voice acting, and a catchy title theme. With its varying levels of difficulty and math subjects, players will get a large amount of replay value out of this game. I reccommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive, reliable, and fun math game for their kids. What a deal!

I like the ability to modify the database parameters of this software. It's just a shame that it will no longer easily install on newer operating systems, although with some tweaks (known only to techno-fans) it can be made to work.

My son with autism loves Math Blaster. I wish they had it in modern OS's though. Kept an XP machine around long enough for him to wear it out though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Newer Versions November 13, 2013

As old as this program is it's far better than modern versions. Children spend more time learning math than how to play the game.
