In this game, you play Ace, a dashing space hero who must fight the space villain, Bort, who plans to use his special device, the Infanto Ray to conquer the universe by reducing his enemies' age to the point where they are too young to oppose. Unfortunately, that job is complicated by the fact that Ace himself was hit with the ray and now is only a young boy. Regardless, his girlfriend is abducted by the villian and the pursuit must continue. However, there are times when you can choose to have Ace's full vigour of his proper age temporarily restored, but the price of additional danger that rises to match his strength.

Did You Know?


Because they had no money for voice actors in the budget, Don Bluth got the part of Borf by default. While happy with his performance, Bluth thought that Paul Shenar, who he had worked with before, would've done a great job voicing Borf. See more »

Played this game for the first time in 1985. The control method wasn't advanced, but hey, was it difficult! This was the first arcade game i ever saw and i was hooked. My old man wouldn't let me go to the arcade, because he was afraid I'd spend my whole allowance there, but I snuck out anyways. I learned later that this game owed it's good graphics to the fact that it was laserdisc driven. A real classic.
