Space Ace HD

By Dragon's Lair LLC

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Now you can experience Don Bluth’s classic arcade game Space Ace, the follow up to the revolutionary Dragon’s Lair, in stunning HD!

In Space Ace you play the heroic Ace who must stop the evil Commander Borf from taking over the Earth! Borf plans to reduce all of humankind to infants and take over the planet. Only two people have the courage and strength to stop Borf and save Earth: the beautiful Kimberly and the heroic Ace. But as they approach Borf’s stronghold, Ace is hit by the Infanto Ray, changing him into a child, and Kimberly is kidnapped by the evil madman. Armed with only a laser gun, Ace must find and destroy the Infanto Ray, rescue Kimberly and save the Earth.

The fate of Earth is in your hands!

This release of Don Bluth’s legendary animated arcade game features video transferred directly from the high definition film master, delivering the sharpest images and most vibrant colors ever – far better than the original laserdisc release.

Simply press on the direction pad to guide Ace in the right direction or fire your laser gun and blast those aliens away.

Don Bluth and his production teams are the creative genius behind such beloved classics as The Secret of NIMH, An American Tail and Anastasia to name but a few.

Dragon’s Lair LLC and Digital Leisure look forward to bringing many of the classic arcade games you’ve come to enjoy to the palm of your hands. Use your iPhone or iPod Touch to visit our website at for exciting updates and exclusive upcoming releases.

Finally done right!

I loved this game in the arcade, and this is the first version since that gives you all three difficulty levels to play since the original arcade game. I saw some people complaining that it's to easy to win and too short. The game comes set on the easiest level and the hints (move guide) are turned on. If you go into the settings and turn off the hints (move guide), then the arrow keys won't light up making it easy to play. Anyone can play with cheats and finish quickly. The challenge is to play at the Ace level with no hints and then tell me how long it takes to play! Great game, and one of the first where you are playing an actual animated cartoon. The game plays great on the new iOs8 system too! Don Bluth is still the master of hand-drawn animation!


Ok ok ok... I have to catch my breath... I LOVE THIS GAME !!! This game is all about timing and for me memorization of sounds hehheh. I read other reviews that say there are parts missing.....let me tell you, as someone that shoveled buckets of quarters into Space Ace as well as Dragons Lair, THIS IS THE FULL GAME AND IT LOOKS SO GOOD! There are options at the beginning of the game (cadet,captain, and ace) they are not all the same game experience. ( that's all I'm saying so as not to ruin it) Also, once you get your groove on there is an option to turn on and off "move guide" that's admittedly harder than I thought. Trust me, if you loved it then, you will love it now. " get me outta heeeeear"

Finished in about 20 minutes!! Too short!!

I finished this in probably 20 minutes or so. I thought maybe there were other levels, but when I went back to the game I only saw the main game. There were no other levels to unlock. While the graphics are incredible, the game is WAY too short and is most definiltey not worth $5. If you are looking for a game you can play for weeks (or even days), don't buy this. If you grew up with this style of gaming in the 80s and don't mind a very short game and don't mind spending $5 for maybe half an hour of entertainment, go for it.

Overall I'm very disappointed.
