'Build your battlefield, engineer your assault'
Ace of spades is a free game that takes the freedom of Minecraft and plonks it into a first person, team based shooter. The emphasis is on tunnelling and defence building, in that every player has an arsenal of blocks and every existing one is removable.

Download Ace of Spades now its awesome, free and runs on any PC. Its the best bits of Minecraft (http://www.minecraft.net/) crossed with the fast-paced shooter gameplay of Team Fortress (http://www.tf2.com/).

Build anything defensive positions to fortresses
Destroy enemy structures, dropping opponents to their death
Use your spade to dig through terrain make trenches or tunnels
Massive maps with lakes, rivers and tunnels
Realistic rifle, shotgun and SMG including ironsights and recoil
Dynamic lighting system based on ambient occlusion
Up to 32 players battling simultaneously
CTF or Territory Control game modes
It's great. Anybody fancy a game?

I knew I'd forgotten something.

Not entirely sure how the weapons count as "realistic", though - the fact they shoot bullets is about as close to reality as they get!

It was a good game, however I now find everyone playing it seems to be aged 12 and has no idea of how to do anything other than run towards the enemy screaming obscenities. Once you'd forever be hunting people digging under your base - now I find I'm the only one with a spade.

Of course, that means everyone's completely confused when I dig under their flag and run off back down my mile-long tunnel, having never been seen... That bit's still fun!

I played this a lot when RPS first posted about it, it's a fun game but easily ruined by players who want to. Are there any good moderated servers or is it still hit and miss?

I allways felt there was too little of an actual game taped to the good idea.

The weapons feel bad, the minimap is horrible and half the time you run for 5 minutes seeing nobody only to be headshotted by a sniper in a hole.
Dont get me wrong, i still love it, the idea is great, building and tunneling work well, i just do not enjoy playing it :)

Glad to see this didn't die permanently. I know that hackers basically ruined it about a week into the first wave of publicity, and it was shut down (thankfully, temporarily.)

Well I play every now and then and the game is still good fun. People sucks compared to early beta and custom maps ruined the tunnel/camping gameplay but other than that...

The weapons feel bad, the minimap is horrible and half the time you run for 5 minutes seeing nobody only to be headshotted by a sniper in a hole.As bad as this guy here. This is not Quake 3. Weapons feel great. Minimap is useless, even now that they improved it.
