Featuring beautiful graphics and intuitive touch controls, Space pioneer will have you take on the role of an interplanetary explorer to scout uncharted alien worlds, take on hostile inhabitants, and secure them for eventual colonization. To take the action up a notch, the game is replete with challenging bosses and valuable resources to collect.
Space Pioneer seamlessly blends elements of RPG and third-person shooters, letting you level up your hero through combat experience to make him even more formidable on the battlefield.

Space Pioneer will work on any iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad as long as it's running on iOS 10 or higher. Because the game is only currently available in Canada, you'll need to create an Apple ID that's based there before you can install it.
Don't fret, however, as creating an Canadian App Store login is pretty easy — simply sign up for a new Apple ID using a valid email account and a realistic Canadian home address. From there, sign into the spoofed account on your iOS device. If you'd like a more detailed guide about this process, be sure to check out our tutorial at the link below.
Once you've successfully set up an App Store account that's based in Canada, the rest of the process will work exactly the same way as installing any game or app. So head to the App Store and search for Space Pioneer to download the game, or tap on the following link from your iOS device.
It's worth noting that Space Pioneer is technically still in development as evidenced by its soft-launch status. Because of this, bugs and other issues may show up as you play the game.
