Ace of Spades: Battle Builder is a voxel-based first-person shooter with sandbox elements.


The gameplay mixes class-based FPS with the Minecraft-like sandbox. All of the game's maps are made of blocks that players can manipulate. There are five classes available for a player: Commando, Marksman, Engineer, Miner, Gangster. Each of them can build structures with blocks as well as dig through them. However, every class has its distinct set of weapons and abilities. The engineer uses jetpacks to fly over the map and quickly reach enemies’ bases, Miner digs faster than any other class, Marksman uses long-ranged rifles, Gangster can throw Molotov cocktails that set area on fire and commando uses assault rifles and rocket launchers.

Game modes

There are several game modes in Ace of Spades Some of them are typical for multiplayer shooters: Team Deathmatch, Capture The Flag, Territory Control, King of the Hill. Several game modes take advantage of the game’s unique features.
In Demolition, your team has to destroy the enemy base and protect yours. In Diamond Mine, you have to bring a diamond to the particular drop-off point. The diamonds are hidden in blocks so to find it players have to dig through terrain and destroy blocks. In Zombie mode one of the players becomes a zombie and must kill other players. Zombie is faster and stronger than any other class in the game, so all the other player has to team up to defeat it.

Ace of Spades: Battle Builder reviews and comments

AoS was, after Risen 2, my first Game on Steam. Although this is now a full 2 Years ago, it has lost none of its Fun. The different Classes, have all their Strengths and are very balanced. In the Online Game, however, It is usually said: Sniper versus command, but even with the Miner, the Melee Class par excellence, you can undermine the generic Sniper positions and get Kills. Jagex's recent Updates related to the Dismissal of the main Dev have weakened Gameplay, with it to be said that the direct Impact for most Players is not as discernible as relevant. Most Of the Minus points that you have read are mainly given in terms of Motivation and I have to admit that it is not always present. There is no Level or anything like that. The K-D is also not shown in the Game, but only in the Main Menu, after Detours. However, it is Fun to explore each of the many game Modes, as despite quite a small Number of Players (usually around 400), at least one Lobby can be found in each Game Modes. Maybe not for everyone, but definitely a big PLUS is the Map editor, where you can choose from countless Prefabs, that is, finished Houses and Constructions, and get your own Map done very easily and quickly. So definitely a Clear Buy Recommendation

Technical (26.03.2014): Player: 1-Multiplayer:-(Offline); 1-32 (Online) XBox controller: Don'T try NoName controllers: Don't try Disk storage: ~ 450MB I wanted to test a Minecraft shooter again, most of which are a pure Disappointment. This Game, though, has convinced me for a good While. It's definitely beginner-friendly as there's a wide Range of Skill Levels that also seems to be well distributed. It is definitely The "builder fashion" that is definitely worth highlighting. In this one you can create a Map from the First-person point of view with Friends or Even strangers at the same time. The Community is also quite open-minded about this. Within a short Time, some Players also joine Servers with their own Cards and test them extensively. Pros:-Hardly Flamer. It hardly Idle In many Modes, which is why there is no Time to really use the Chat. -Very Beginner Friendly. Try all the Classes, see which one you are. Since the Class can be changed quickly in the Menu and the Game is very fast-paced, you get to know the Game very quickly enough. Contra:-(If for many not really negative) The Balance of each game Modes makes some Classes almost useless. You have to be prepared for Choosing classes by map and Mode and not necessarily choosing your Favorite Class. What to expect: An arcade shooter in Minecraft design. 4 Classes known from other Shooters: Commando-Heavy Melee unit. Weapons: Minigun, RPG/Shotgun, Grenades. Marksman-Sniper. Weapons: Sniper, Gun, Mine. Miner-Gräbt/destroys faster than any other Class. Weapons: Shotgun, a "Drill cannon" (Shoot a Drill that drills a certain Distance and explodes as a result), Dynamite. Engineer-Engineer. Each Class can have a few specific prefabricated Structures, but these many different ones. Can fly (Rocket backpack). Weapons: Machine gun, stationary Raktenturm/-block shooting weapon (to quickly erect obstacle/walls). As Far as all are played, usually a Surplus Slips to Marksman and Commando. Buildings, unlike in other "Minecraft shooters," can collapse. In Doing so, they come to mind when no Stone connects them to the Ground any more, so they would float. However, Collapsing Buildings do no Damage.
