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!

This game is beutiful. It has simple game modes with a large veriaty of options that can make the game funny and commical, or simple and thought out. The art style may be simple but it is truly colorful and unique. I've heard this game decribed as Minecraft with guns, but I've played Minecraft with guns and it is simular, but not nearly as charming. The "classes" for lack of beter term, have so much character in their "quips" that it's not even funny, and I feel that this game is well balanced.

Meh.

The only passable part of this game is the classic mode, which does a decent job of emulating the classic Ace of Spades experience. The experience is marred by the fact that there are no private servers with custom maps, which means we're stuck playing the same few maps over and over.

Anything that isn't classic mode is not really worth your time. There's a ton of balance issues in the game currently, and Jagex has abandoned it in favor of it's newer project, Block'n'Load, where they don't have to cater to those of us who loved the old Ace of Spades in her glory days.

My playtime is more from getting the achievements than just playing for fun. I've had some decent fun in classic mode, but it's definitely not worth the price nowadays considering how dead the game is. There's only a couple active servers at any given time, with most game modes being abandoned.

If you played Ace of Spades previously and you're wanting to give it a try, you're better off looking for communities that run the original game, such as build n shoot.

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

When the game was first released on to steam I thought, "Oh, this is awesome! They finally polished up the game." I was wrong. So, so, so wrong. The game was almost nothing like the alpha version in terms of gameplay, which was refreshing, but also alienated the game for me. It was enjoyable and I played with friends often... Until they just ♥♥♥♥ed with the gameplay to the point where it was too painful to play anymore.

On a seperate note, they do have a gamemode that mimics the alpha... but seems so poorly put together in the new engine it's running on. Anything that made the alpha so fun and addicting just seems lost in this game.

Loved the original. This is like a completely different game... I wish I had bought something good with that money. This has been sitting in my library for years untouched.
