If you aren't familiar with this game, or Dragon's Lair, they are definitely worth checking out, at least once. Mr. Bluth later created the film "The Secret of NIHM", and, more recently, "Titan AE", so if you enjoyed either of those, you may also want to check this out. Very frustrating, but a novel slice of the past "future" of gaming.
Game Zero
If you have never played Space Ace, the play style is almost exactly like Dragon's Lair. If you have played neither, the play control goes like this: LEFT, RIGHT, LASER... "Hey, why the hell did I just die?" You interact with semi-interesting animation sequences where there is only one correct move and if you make one wrong move out of sequence you die instantly. Needless to say, this gets really frustrating. One of the things that really pisses me off about this version is that there are almost no clues as to what the moves should be; in the arcade objects would flash a split second before you had to make a move, giving you a clue as to which move you should make. Almost all of these flashes have been removed. If you loved Space Ace in the arcade, do NOT buy this version; playing this version will quite possibly destroy your fond memories of an arcade enigma that disappeared almost as fast as it had appeared.
