Author Comments

Ace Pilot, a mercenary for the galactic order S.U.C., needs to stop the rising power of the Krill empire from taking over the galaxy one planet at a time.

You play as Ace, the S.U.C.'s secret weapon. Follow the adventure in Story Mode. Create limitless battle scenarios in Action mode!

Hell, even watch the cut scenes while auto-skipping gameplay after you've beat it, if that's what gets your kicks!
Story mode is incredibly cutscene heavy! If you're let down by that, you can always have instant fun in Action Mode.

**CHROME USERS - The only problems that have been reported lately are in Chrome. If your game freezes up, feel free to send our programmer a message about what happened (like what level you were on, what you were doing, etc).


Game updated 7-20-2012: We figure that if you're here you're here to play the game, so we decided to make a few modifications. We took out medals, and everything to do with the API (if you want more info on that reasoning, message EldritchAbomination). This game is about the story, so we took out saved progress and now you just have access to the whole game; play whatever you want whenever, no worries about having a saved game. We are currently addressing the issue of the "Shared Creations" thing on profile pages. That is a result of saving the game, not something we wanted to happen, which is part of why we took out saves. Oh, and we made it where only simple ads show up instead of videos.


- You do have some options in the game. You can change all of your controls, and there is a keyboard mode if you are using a laptop (or just like the keyboard).
- There are also several options for effects and debris that you can turn up or down depending on your computer.


Help us out! buy the epic soundtrack to the game made by Brian Sadler!


How could THIS Only GET 3th PLACE??

Really nice to see a nice old gameplay put to great use in a stupidly amusing game like this one. Great going I loved the game. very very interesting.

Nice. I haven't played a good game in a while. And seeing a collab project like this is always interesting. There are so many big names on this, like Hans, Egoraptor, Omahdon, and RicePirate. I am looking forward to any sequels if it is actually in the pipe.

Can we make Ace a Newgrounds mascot?

Because I want Ace to be a Newgrounds mascot.....

We don't have enough space mascots that rival Han Solo and John Picard on the coolness scale.

Also the game was very awesomely well done, the cutscenes, while long, were packed with excellent voice acting and a funny script. And the action mode option was a good feature to put in for some of the NGers with short attention spans and a lust for space dogfights. I especially liked the feeling of ripping a group of small fighters to shreds with a simple left thrust u-turn, as well as the all too simple yet effective strategy of luring a large group of small fighter ships into the glowing maw of a larger, exploding starship. The "battlefields" are very well executed to simulate how not EVERY damn enemy is going to go after you, rather just shooting everything that moves, although I could've done with a little more......variety in Ace's starship, nothing fancy, maybe a few extra options for his basic weapon systems, and some more area attacks like a shockwave emanating from the ship, or even an energy shield cutter that would turn Ace's ship into a freaking arrow and allow for multiple kills in a straight bee-line. Maybe i'm overthinking it though, I liked the game, the cutscenes were a great blend of entertainment to keep me somewhat relaxed after a firefight and also to keep me wanting to play the game for more chuckles along the way. The simplicity itself melds well with the style and reminds me of the good old days when starships weren't so damn complex and people had vegetable oil powered jetpacks. Great job, and I hope to get behind the wheel of Ace's starship like he gets behind space women..... except without the space herpes.

My only complaint is the controls are a little awkward other than that perfect.
