Hello Space Hulkers. I found the hourglass that comes with Space Hulk wasn't good enough because it doesn't make any noise to tell you when your turn is over, and in a heated battle you can often forget about it. There's already a timer on iPhone, but it doesn't give you any warnings before your turn is over, so I made an iPhone app just for gamers called Space Clock.

Features:


Audio cues let you know how much time is left for your turn. There's a soft beep on every elapsed minute, a louder beep on 30 seconds remaining and a final 10 second count-down before the alarm sounds.
Increase or decrease the count from 5 minutes to 30 seconds. This allows you to play with the Space Hulk first edition rules, where the marine player loses 30 seconds of time for each sergeant lost.
Pause and resume the count-down at any time. Perfect for when you need to consult the rule-book.
Additional points counter for keeping track of mission objectives, such as marines saved.
Clear interface with big buttons and a striking visual style.

Its a very simple app but will prove very usefull in tense games where you might forget to keep track on the timer. Also its free whats not to love.

If you plug it into speakers using the headphone jack; the iPod touch doesn't have its own interior speaker (I have one).

And I will definitely be downloading this. It's perfect, thanks!

Ah, I forgot the first gen iPods have no speakers. The later models have a speaker so you can hear the countdown beeps.

This is great- the points tracker is useful, too!

Nice Easter-egg Monorail! What would be super-awesome is if when you touched the skulls they each played a game-related sfx (bolter-firing, assault-cannon firing, genestealer scream, flamer effect) to truly add to the Hulky atmosphere.

Thanks, MonoRAIL a wonderful little app that's already seen service with my gaming group. It's brill!

If you do update it, any chance you could bump the 'Mission number counter' up to 30, rather than 10? It'd help for those missions where you have to keep track of how many genestealers the marines have killed.

For additional authenticity, hold it in an ovenglove and pretend you're brother Omnio. :P

I would happily, nay ecstatically, pay good money for a version with sound effects particularly if it continually made a sort of atmospheric echoey corrider noise. :yes:

One nitpick; I was using the "points" counter to trak 'stealer kills, but it maxes out at 10. Any chance of making it count higher?

There's already a perfectly good trcker for that in the box, though. :) No harm in making the points counter multifunctional.

might also be a replacement for command points if you were to lose a tile in an un fortuante spaghetti incident

Been waiting for this before I got an iphone (I have a travel space hulk (http://gwpertinent.blogspot.com/2009/11/travel-space-hulk-playable.html) I made so this is perfect). Time to upgrade.

Glad you're all enjoying the App. I'm hoping to update it with a few new features and fixes when the iPad comes out. I'll post here when it's ready.

Would it be possoible to have a selection of different skins for it? Off the top of my head, there have been campaigns featuring Blood Angels, Deathwing, Ultramarines, Space Wolves and Salamanders. Death Guard too, but they were the bad guys. :)

Happy New Year!

Nice app, thanks! I only just got an itouch last month so I would have ignored this thread when you first put it here a year ago.

Have to second this, Conor! Amazing work, such a characterful addition to games of Space Hulk, and the addition of sound to a game would be the icing on the cake...

Cheers,
