This was the first game I beat in the Dragon's Lair trilogy. It's awesome, witty dialouge, amazing score and sound effects and outstanding animation by Don Bluth will have you wanting to play this game again and again. All modes of difficulty are pretty hard to beat without dying, but you feel rewarded by the end when you defeat Borf. Score does not even matter.

GOLD!
At last the final piece to my Don Bluth collection. The last masterpiece to be made by the Bulth team that was any good but what a way to finish off the Franchise that started with Dragons Lair.
Space Ace is identical to the Laser Disc version that haunted us old school gamers back in the day by being incredibly hard to finish, mostly due to the fact that we didn't have enough coins to keep whacking in the arcade box to continue haha.
This is the 3rd game in the Bluth Laser Disc franchise and to say that this was the best looking game that existed back in the late 80s and 90s is a gross understatement, back then I was amazed that you could actually interact with a cartoon!
The game itself is not very complex (you respond to directional cues/icons on screen) but is instead entertaining and rewarding. It makes you want to continue on just to see more and more of the cartoon antics and story, not to mention the hillarious death scenes.
If you are an old school gamer or liked the Dragons Lair games or you are a collector of classic games then do not miss this for your game collection, this was part of one of the biggest milestones for games during the late 80s and 90s.
Finally for those out there like me who played this as a young teenager simply buy now and just soak up the nostalgia whilst reliving those great memories of a miss spent youth.
An absolute treasure!

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.
