* SequelDifficultySpike: Though not technically a sequel, this game is LEAGUES above Dragon's Lair in difficulty. That game did have occasional moments that didn't allow you enough time to react to the situation before something kills you, but this entire game plays that way. Unless you know what's coming ahead, there is no way to get through 90% of the game's obstacles without dying. Doubles as NintendoHard, triples as FakeDifficulty in that there's no way a normal human could respond in time to almost all the game's obstacles without prior memorization, quadruples as HarderThanHard (though the game naturally plays this way even on the easiest mode, so it's not a difficulty option but the game's inherent difficulty), and quintuples as TrialAndErrorGameplay, If you don't have the solutions to the obstacles memorized, you will never get through the game.

* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Both Dexter in his adult form and Kimberly are very attractive people while Borf is...not. [[HumansThroughAlienEyes At least not by human standards, anyway.]]

It was originally released on laserdisc on April 15, 1984, and has since been ported to the [[http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=314133588&mt=8 iPhone]], the PSN, and [[http://android-apps.com/games/arcade_action/space-ace/ Android]]. A comic mini-series based on the game incorporated elements from the original game and its ''WesternAnimation/SaturdaySupercade'' segment (mainly Ace's changes to Dexter and back happening at random). It was also released on {{Steam}} on August 27, 2013.

* TheChick: Kimberly.

to:

* TheChick: Kimberly. To be fair, she actually does some fairly impressive things over the course of the ten minute game.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Tsundere}}: A mild version as Kimberly gives Ace a lot of sass during their time together.

* TheAce: It's in his name. He was less confident and capable as a teenager.



* EverythingTryingToKillYou: As befits the SpiritualSuccessor to VideoGame/DragonsLair.



** Played straight in the poorly received SNES port, where Borf only taunts you once you lose your last life.

* TheManyDeathsOfYou

to:

* TheManyDeathsOfYouMsFanservice: Kimberly is a hot buxom redhead in a Star Trek-esque miniskirt with lots of sass.
* TheManyDeathsOfYou: You will die, constantly, or the game is over in ten minutes.



* PantyShot: Frequently with Kimberly, apparently.

The SpiritualSuccessor to Creator/DonBluth's popular ''VideoGame/DragonsLair'' laserdisc arcade game, ''Space Ace'' was similar, and yet it wasn't.
