There’s a lot of potential within Space Pioneer that is unfortunately largely squandered by its repetitive nature.

Space Pioneer lands on the Nintendo Switch after its mobile debut and while its simple, intuitive and accessible gameplay are an asset, the game's feeling of repetitiveness and lack of sense of purpose makes it a rather lacklustre effort. Space Pioneer's local multiplayer turns out to be its most valuable component, welcoming players of all kinds without any time barriers.

Space Pioneer offers an addictive arcade experience that feels incomplete. Although the upgrade system is surprisingly deep, the rest of the game suffers from being too shallow to set itself apart from the pack. As far as isometric, twin-stick shooters go, this one is just okay.
