Space Ace is a step up from Dragon's Lair - There is more than one way to beat rooms, you can play the game without 'energizing' into Space Ace, and the different difficulties extend (or shorten) certain scenes. So in actuality, Space Ace is the better game. However, Dragon's lair will always be a classic.

Excellent version of the original classic arcade game. This game plays the same way "Dragon's Lair" does except the story line is in outer space instead of a medieval theme. Gameplay in this Steam version is customizable. You can play as the game was released in the arcades or you can play with visual and audio cues. There are varying degrees of difficulty and Steam Achievements to farm for as well.

This game along with "Dragon's Lair 1" and "DL 2" are basically old arcade laser disc games. The game would play the laser disk and your game would start. You (as the player) would have to make the correct move(s), as the laser disk played (usually an animated movie). Making an incorrect move would start an alternative movie clip that usually showed you dying. These Steam versions do a great job of recreating that feel. An excellent game but ONLY BUY ON SALE !

An excellent game from the genre that was the grandaddy of all QTE. For maximum enjoyment be sure to turn off the move guide for your first playthrough as having it on eliminates half the challange of the game. Especially for your first playthrough. With it off the game will provide and incredibly higher amount of play time. This is true for all the Don Bluth games.

Though I will say with the move guide off (e.g. playing the REAL game) prepare to die.

A lot.

This game is amazing! If you like cartoons this is for you! Mind you the moves are all programmed, but unlike Dragon's Lair, you got more options with Space Ace! I must have spent close to 100 bucks in quarters on this game when it was in the arcades. This game is created from the creative mind of Don Bluth. Back in the day this game was ahead of it's time! I still play this game regularly anf I highly recommend it!

This version is very faithful to the original arcade version, and it's nice to see Don Bluth's incredible animation in HD! My only complaint is that it does not contain the scenes of Borf taunting you when you die.

Even though this game is nothing but QTEs, I love it. It took me right back to the 80s, feeding coins into the machine at the arcade. If you played it then, you already know why you should buy it.

Space Ace ditches the short, random dungeon room design from before and features much longer stages that all play similarly to Dragon's Lair's awesome final scene. There are even branching paths throughout depending on if you energize into Ace or not. The same fundamental problems still remain from before, but Space Ace is still an improvement in every possible way over its predecessor.

Made by the same guys who made Dragon's Lair, but with a lot more voice acting to it. More QTE, but now with a MUCH higher chance for gratuitous explosions!

Do i really need to explain why you should buy Space Ace immediately??? The legendary game exactly as it was when you'd play it down the arcades in 1984...

If you don't like this game, then you don't know how to have fun and probably shouldn't even play games to begin with!
