About This Game

Say hello to the creative shooter. Ace of Spades: Battle Builder is the first-person shooter that lets you create your battleground, destroy it, then create it again. Up to 32 players choose from seven unique classes and jump into team-based, multiplayer mayhem across an endlessly evolving battlefield, to construct, destruct and take out the opposition.

Key Features

  • CONSTRUCTION, COMBAT AND CREATIVITY - Complete strategic and creative freedom is at your disposal to annihilate the enemy however you like.
  • MULTIPLAYER MAP CREATION - Ace of Spades: Battle Builder includes a map creator mode, which allows you to collaborate with up to 23 friends and make your very own Ace of Spades battleground! Custom tools and over 400 prefabricated structures will help you build the ultimate multiplayer maps, which you can upload and share via Steam Workshop.
  • CUSTOM GAME MODES - Play the way YOU want to play! Host your own match or create your own mode using the wide selection of settings available to you. From fine tuning your favourite mode & classes, to turning TDM into a Spade-only grudge match with predefined teams, as a lobby host you can:
  • Set your lobby to invite only, friends, or open, and also have full control over who joins with the host ‘kick’ function
  • Sort players into specific teams – great for clan matches, or for playing on the same team as your friends
  • Choose the map you want to play, official or player made
  • Set the size of the match, and it’s duration
  • Set up vanilla game modes or tweak them to suit by using an extensive set of customisable game rules

    Tons Of Insane Game Modes

    • Team Deathmatch - The Grandaddy of them all. Kill the enemy; try not to die doing it.
    • Zombie Mode - Survive the onslaught of the living dead. Failing that, join them.
    • Classic CTF – Back to basics, one class, one loadout, the classic rifle. You know what to do.
    • Capture the Flag – No FPS is complete without CTF. Protect your flag, take the enemies’.
    • Demolition - Demolish the enemy’s base before your own is decimated.
    • Diamond Mine - Dig up precious diamonds & defend the diamond carrier as they attempt to cash in their discovery at your team’s base for points.
    • Occupation - A game mode that pits offence against defence. The defensive team must protect their teams based in the green occupied area of the map while the attacking Blue team try to destroy the enemy position by successfully detonating bombs.
    • VIP – Play in 1930’s era Chicago or LA’s Alcatraz and protect your mob boss from the opposing Mafioso.
    • Territory Control - Claim key tactical areas of the map for your team, gain a majority territory control of the map to win, or even better go for glory and take over the entire map!

Would be good if it wasn't another "minecraft with guns" type game and actually had players in the servers.

It was good... Then the community dropped. It is hard to find a good server to play on with decent ping or with some people to play with. There is only one mode that is popular and that's about it. Otherwise, you're dead out of luck.

Despite the countless horrible reviews for this game, I have to say that I've had quite a bit of fun playing the Classic game mode, as it is a LOT different than all of the other modes in Ace of Spades. While I highly discourage people from buying this game, if you already happen to own it then the Classic mode is worth checking out.

The controls were more complicated to change than Ive experienced with any other game, so far. The game was buggy and kicked me off more than once. The game play is easy and winning is too easy, making the whole experience boring.

Maybe it's fun, maybe it's worth buying. I don't think so. It's not fun for me to play this game. This game needs to change or get free to play. 2/10 would not kill blocks again.

I had many great hours of fun playing the game around 2012. The time the game got released, but after taking a long break and returning to the game I loved it had changed. After looking at the reivews, the game was bought by another company which took an entire turn to a great minecraft shooter into something I don't recognize anymore.

Jagex bought this indie game, ♥♥♥♥ed it to hell (terrible lag at all times, shoddy movement mechanics, horrendous class mechanics like engineer being able to grief his entire team and one shot zombies across the map, sniper giving away his location every time he zooms, engineer having the world's ♥♥♥♥♥iest, laggiest jetpack and a gun that couldnt kill a fly, and commando being able to literally fly forever with a parachute that falls at a rate of 1 centimeter per minute) and then shoved lame p2w dlc into it. Please, for the love of all that is holy, do not encourage these people.

This was a great game, there were tournaments just like csgo, you could even create Clans and battle other clans, there were Millions of players playing this back in 2012-2014, SallyTheButcher even suggested creating merchantdise, and asked the players what they would want, unfortunately, in 2016 this game just died and the devs of this game abandoned it.
TBH if I bought this game I would make it better, by making it cheaper, make the DLC availble for everybody, make the community come back alive, work on the merchantdise, add more weapons, update more regually and listen to the community, if some people want something removed or nerfed, I would do a poll.

Rest In Peace AOS.

I love this game, I just ♥♥♥♥ing love this game. The only thing it needs is couple of fixes of bugs and more weapons and classes! This is one of my favorite games, but I barely get to play it now, because of the bad optimization. It laggs a lot sometimes.

Was a very good game when it first launched. But Jagex then nerfed snipers to much, and took too long to make updates that could made the game really fun. Because of this the community for ace of spades dropped significantly since its launch and now has very little people playing it in multiplayer as it once did. overall 3/10.
