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!

Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic reliving of the original with one caveat.
Space Ace is a wonderful throwback to the Laserdisc original game from the 80s and in that sense it's absolutely fantastic. It continues to be beautiful and highly entertaining. The dynamic is as simple as the original: You watch a clip of film which provides a visual clue and you interact to continue to the next clip or fail and see an alternative clip. For those who are not familiar with this kind of "game", it's more like a highly enjoyable and beautifully animated, interactive movie.
The one caveat is that unlike the original, you have to actually look at the controls in order to use them, as they are not physical controllers but virtual. This does not necessarily detract much from one's enjoyment and actually makes it a bit easier to get through some of those tough parts (at times too easy), particularly those I had more trouble with in the original, but it does keep you from being fully engrossed in the wonderful artwork and animation of the movie itself as your attention is elsewhere.
Still, it continues to be a beautiful and highly enjoyable experience. Enjoy!!!
The game is identical to the original laser disc game. However, there is NO SOUND to the game. No options for sound/music like all others games on App Store. Also, the control arrows make it difficult to play.
If you enjoy games with no sound, this one is for you. I WOULD NOT have bought it for $4.99 if I knew there was no sound available on this game. So I give it “1” star because of that.
Sound works great! Arcade controls are nice. Wii console sell a great version of these games also for play on your big screen. So much fun to play this again!
