Ace of Spades is part building game, part shooter, where you can create the very battefield you will be fighting on.
What sets Ace of Spades apart from other shooters is the constantly changing battlefield that you’ll be fighting on. Not only can you destroy many of the objects on the map, but you can actively build up all sorts of structures brick by brick as the game goes on. You will have to balance between bolstering your defensive positions with structures and fighting off assaulting enemies to guarantee victory for your team.
You can construct anything you can imagine, from tunnels to fortresses and everything in between, all you need is some creativity and a few blocks. Build up your structures quickly to gain every advantage over your enemy that you can.
The constant building and fighting takes place in various game modes, where there are different objectives for each type that requires totally different strategies and priorities from one to the other. No match will ever be the same as another thanks to these multiple modes and the basic build and shoot mechanic of the game.
The graphics are just what you would expect from a block-centric game; lots of blocks. Pretty much everything is a six sided box or a few of them stuck together, giving the game a very simple and barebones feel that focuses on strategy and gameplay rather than flashy visuals or realism.
