For the first time ever, you can experience Don Bluth’s classic arcade game Space Ace, the follow up to the revolutionary Dragon’s Lair, on your iPhone or iPod Touch!
This release of Don Bluth’s legendary animated arcade game features video transferred directly from the stunning high definition master, delivering the sharpest images and most vibrant colours ever – even better than the original laserdisc release!
In Space Ace you play the heroic Ace who must stop the evil Commander Borf from taking over the Earth! Borf plans to reduce all of humankind to infants and take over the planet. Only two people have the courage and strength to stop Borf and save Earth: the beautiful Kimberly and the heroic Ace. But as they approach Borf’s stronghold, Ace is hit by the Infanto Ray, changing him into a child, and Kimberly is kidnapped by the evil madman! Armed with only a laser gun, Ace must find and destroy the Infanto Ray, rescue Kimberly and save the Earth!
The fate of Earth is in your hands!
Simply press on the direction pad to guide Ace in the right direction or fire your laser gun and blast those aliens away! It’s that simple!
Don Bluth Productions is the creative genius behind such beloved classics as “An American Tail”, “Secret of Nimh” and “Anastasia” to name but a few.

Ratings and Reviews
Not as fun today
This is a faithful reproduction of the original laserdisc game, but the iPhone touch controls are not responsive enough for this reflex twitch game. Sometimes you're literally hitting the button while it's still glowing yellow and it doesn't register. I guess you get to see Don Bluth's brilliant animation over and over!
How can you feel any nostalgic energy of yesterday’s newspaper route quarters plugged into your favourite game at Macs Milk with no soundtrack? I want my money back!
Latest Version is the Full Game
Previous reviews stated that some scenes were missing, but I’m happy to say that all scenes are here - including the roller skating maze. It’s a fantastic trip down memory lane!
