Hunt down the galaxy’s baddest dudes in Space Pioneer! [Game of the Week]
Update May 4, 2018: Become the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy in Space Pioneer! Then marvel at the insane anime-style action in Honkai Impact 3rd!
Space Pioneer is my new obsession. In this game, you play an intergalactic bounty hunter trying to hunt down a gargantuan space creature that keeps getting away just at the last second, leading you on a quest to capture it while exploring the planets of different star systems.
This is a top-down shooter with RPG mechanics for upgrading and leveling up your character and gear. It’s a free-to-play game that does a great job of balancing in-app purchases so that you don’t need to spend money to keep progressing through the game, although some of their deals might be worth it if you want to supercharge your character.
The variety of enemies across the different types of planets are great, and there’s a good mix of objectives and bonus objectives to complete for coins. There’s no time limit on each level with enemies constantly respawning, so you can farm coins to get that new weapon you want or whatever. It’s up to you.
The graphics are great, the gameplay is smooth, and it’s just a ton of fun to play. Check it out this week!

Honkai Impact 3rd
I’ll be honest that I don’t quite understand everything that’s going on with Honkai impact 3rd — this is a game that was hugely popular in Japan and other Asian countries and was only released globally over the last month.
I was drawn to the game because the trailer showcased some of the best cel-shaded graphics for a mobile game I’ve ever seen. this game is essentially an anime-inspired brawler with RPG elements that has you command a team of kick-ass female warriors who are on a mission to beat up bad guys.
I’ve only scratched the surface for what this game offers, but the graphics are the real deal and the gameplay is simplified in ways but still pretty amazing with some great battle animations. If you’re a big fan of anime, you may recognize some of the voice talents here, too, so definitely check it out if that’s your thing.
