New Android App: ZergTimer

I’ve just released a new, free Android App: Zerg Timer

It is a little helper app for Zerg players in the game StarCraft II®.

As a Zerg player, you need to spawn new larva with your Queen every 29 seconds (on game speed=fastest).

I tend to forget that (especially if a battle is going on) and that makes it very difficult to e.g. rebuild my army, because I’m short on larva.

Therefore I’ve created Zerg Timer.

It works this way:

  1. Just before you spawn your larva, you click on the Start/Restart button in the App
  2. Afterwards, you spawn larva in all hatcheries
  3. The app will notify you as soon as the you can spawn larva again (depending on the game speed, this will take between 29s and 66.4s)
  4. Go to step 1 :-)

A notification sound will be played when the timer hits zero and 50% later (if you forgot to spawn the larva/restart the timer).

To quickly spawn larva in every hatchery, put all your queens in one group (e.g. group “0″) and repeat these steps for every hatchery:

  • BackSpace (to jump to the next hatchery)
  • “0″ (select all queens)
  • “v” (select “Spawn Larva” ability)
  • Click on the hatchery

You can download Zerg Timer on Android Market.
