|Any games veteran out there will recognise this in one form or another. For Space Ace was originally a laserdisc arcade adventure released in the autumn of 1983. A Don Bluth/Gary Goldman creation, it was an immediate success for the fans of Dragon's Lair, released earlier that year.
10 years later, the game was turned into this platformer for the SNES. In it, you play as Dexter, a young hero who has to do battle against his arch-nemesis Borf, who kidnapped Dexter's girl, Princess Kimmy. Borf also possess something called the Infanto Ray which with one blast can turn a fully grown man into a helpless baby. However, Dexter can energize himself to turn into a fully grown man armed with a zapper.
There are also various flying shooty bits in the Space Maze as you fly to find the next level. This part is difficult as you can get lost very quickly.
