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
Faithful but missing a few parts
This is a very faithful reproduction of the original arcade version and even has difficulty levels which is a very nice feature. My only problem with the game is there's a few missing scenes such as the roller skating in the maze and the snakes with the crushing machine chapters are 100% missing. Also, the opening frames from the floating platform part is missing. Besides a few missing scenes it is the same as the original version. I wonder why they cut a few scenes, wish they had not. Still a good buy for fans of the game.
This is fantastic!
Fast paced, just like the original arcade version. The animation and audio is great and the controls are super responsive. Play Dragon's Lair first and your reflexes will be primed and ready for this nostalgic space romp. Man, I love this !
I've only played the Dragon's Lair games but never Space Ace. Since I downloaded it, I fell in love and amm highly addicted to it. Controls are just perfect and gameplay is sweet. I highly recommend this app to all ages, for the price, it's captiveness and the fact that it's a classic.
Keep up the great work!
