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 »

Watching the whole game
14 April 2004 | by davidemartinSee all my reviews

I was fortunate to wander into my local Schaumburg arcade when a master at SPACE ACE was there with a big pocket full of quarters. You know how usually nothing is more boring than watching someone else play a video game? SPACE ACE and DRAGONS LAIR are the exceptions. Not having to worry about making any decisions (like when to joggle the joystick), I was able to just watch the action on the screen.

It's a helluva ride! A great acrobatic raygun duel (that I know dang well I would never have survived!). Beat the bad guy and the game goes into a humorous epilogue and a nifty surprise ending.
