Say hello to the creative shooter. Ace of Spades: Battle Builder is the first-person shooter that lets you create your battleground, destroy it, then create it again. Up to 32 players choose from seven unique classes and jump into team-based, multiplayer mayhem across an endlessly evolving battlefield, to construct, destruct and take out the opposition.
CONSTRUCTION, COMBAT AND CREATIVITY:
Complete strategic and creative freedom is at your disposal to annihilate the enemy however you like.
MULTIPLAYER MAP CREATION:
Ace of Spades: Battle Builder includes a map creator mode, which allows you to collaborate with up to 23 friends and make your very own Ace of Spades battleground! Custom tools and over 400 prefabricated structures will help you build the ultimate multiplayer maps, which you can upload and share via Steam Workshop.
CUSTOM GAME MODES:
Play the way YOU want to play! Host your own match or create your own mode using the wide selection of settings available to you. From fine tuning your favourite mode & classes, to turning TDM into a Spade-only grudge match with predefined teams, as a lobby host you can:
Set your lobby to invite only, friends, or open, and also have full control over who joins with the host ‘kick’ function
Sort players into specific teams – great for clan matches, or for playing on the same team as your friends
Choose the map you want to play, official or player made
Set the size of the match, and it’s duration
Set up vanilla game modes or tweak them to suit by using an extensive set of customisable game rules
Tons Of Insane Game Modes:
Team Deathmatch - The Grandaddy of them all. Kill the enemy; try not to die doing it.
Zombie Mode - Survive the onslaught of the living dead. Failing that, join them.
Classic CTF – Back to basics, one class, one loadout, the classic rifle. You know what to do.
Capture the Flag – No FPS is complete without CTF. Protect your flag, take the enemies’.
Demolition - Demolish the enemy’s base before your own is decimated.
Diamond Mine - Dig up precious diamonds & defend the diamond carrier as they attempt to cash in their discovery at your team’s base for points.
Occupation - A game mode that pits offence against defence. The defensive team must protect their teams based in the green occupied area of the map while the attacking Blue team try to destroy the enemy position by successfully detonating bombs.
VIP – Play in 1930’s era Chicago or LA’s Alcatraz and protect your mob boss from the opposing Mafioso.
Territory Control - Claim key tactical areas of the map for your team, gain a majority territory control of the map to win, or even better go for glory and take over the entire map!
An awesome gameDadnaya | Sept. 5, 2015 | See all Dadnaya's reviews »
This game is pretty much Minecraft+FPS. It's enjoyable and I think it's pretty good since you can spend many hours on playing it, building, killing and destroying, But, the most of the community plays the Deathmatch mode so the other modes are pretty empty. Another good thing is the workshop, anybody can add maps and play them, with friends, online, or alone! I would recommend this with 80/100 :)

This is a really fun game with elements of war games with Minecraft mixed in with it. The entire environment is destructible and rebuildable, which makes for some pretty insane battles and strategies. Even more fun playing with friends, so would recommend getting the 4pack if you know enough people interested in it.
Pretty good game but has a place to improvedadnaya | April 25, 2015 | See all dadnaya's reviews »
Quick Overview: Well, This game is awesome. I like FPS games, I like minecraft, and I got this. You have many options and a bit of fantasy (like you can fly). Switching between guns or weapons is pretty important in FPS games (let's have M16 for all time- meh) so you can change rockets vs players or that destroys more blocks... Snipers are still a bit imbalanced but at least you can see a laser from their scope so you know where to shoot. Something really funny is you can in some clicks build your own fortress, slowing your enemy and flying away (if engineer) or leaving some mines there. There's also a map creator where you can build maps and upload to the steam workshop. The most played mode is Deathmatch but still, the others as well (not sayin' that Deathmatch isn't fun). And the original PROS and CONS: Let's start with the PROS, shall we?: +Enjoyable FPS, comfortable +Building function +Map editor + workshop +Not huge community, but has a lot of players +Classes, and guns to choose from +Statics (Kills, deaths, maps played etc.) +Achievements +Cards +Half voice acted And now- the cons: -Building big things at one time (those who are already made) make the game lag -Almost and only deathmatch is played -Snipers are imbalanced. In summary: this game is enjoyable and recommended, like the title says it has a place to improve but it's OK for now. My steam review as Well.
Well, could be better.eekar1 | Jan. 6, 2015 | See all eekar1's reviews »
The game is good, and I liked playing the BETA . You can have fun for hours and hours , Build , Create strategies , Play with friends and etc. But not everything is wonderful, the game sickens and many of the players are trolls or griffers . Everything has changed since the official launch and then I just played to get the collectibles cards and play with a friend of mine , because I had lost the grace to me and the changes have left me happy. The availability of possibilities for constructions and kills is what makes the game coolest , build barriers , do a lot of things I have ever seen on servers and destroy blocks ( I recommend not destroying buildings, only if you're a brainless boring) . The graphics you already know , is the minecraft fever, blocks here and there. The most interesting are the maps, some are incredibly giants and has amazing landscapes. THe game is cheap (good part) The gamplay is interesting, since it includes several types of games. Yes I recommend this game , since you can have fun.

How can a game take an amazing premise (Team Fortress 2 and Minecraft) and screw up so badly? They make Ace of Spades, a game-breakingly buggy, half-baked multiplayer shooter that's terrible. Half of the time the game is unplayably buggy. When I can play it, the classes are samey, the gunplay is poor, and the servers are either empty or full of jerks. This game really had potential but they just gave up before it got near the level of polish or mechanics that it needs. I wouldn't recommend this when TF2 is infinitely better, and it's free.
