Ace battles the evil Commander Borf.
As one of the first animated video games in history, Space Ace features non-stop video entertainment. The evil Commander Borf has kidnapped Ace’s girlfriend, the beautiful Kimberly, and is plotting to enslave the Earth using his dreaded “Infanto Ray”, a weapon that changes everyone it blasts into a helpless baby. Game enthusiasts can choose to guide Ace, or his weak alter-ego Dexter, through Borf’s strongholds to find and destroy the Infanto Ray, rescue Kimberly and save the Earth.
Space Ace, the classic laser-disc based arcade game, features spectacular quality animation created by Don Bluth, a former Disney animator famous for his work on An American Tail, The Land Before Time and he also co-directed the more recent blockbuster Anastasia. In addition to the fully playable game, the Space Ace DVD-ROM release contains exclusive interviews with Bluth and Rick Dyer, co-creators and designers of the game.
