In August of last year, developer Full Control released Space Hulk on PC, a video game adaptation of the tabletop board game of the same name. Full Control had been hinting that their version of Space Hulk would be coming to iOS, and indeed the following December Space Hulk [$9.99 (HD)] was released for the iPad for $9.99. Today, for the first time since releasing, Space Hulk is on sale for $4.99, half off its regular price. In conjunction with the sale, Space Hulk has just received an update adding co-op multiplayer functionality, as well as a new multiplayer lobby. The game's online multiplayer works cross-platform with the Mac, Linux and PC versions of the game.
Overall, the video game adaptation of Space Hulk has seen mixed reviews, I think mostly due to it retaining many of its complexities and "hardcoreness" from the physical board game version. But, if this type of game is your cup of tea, five bucks is a pretty incredible price to grab the iPad version for. It's significantly cheaper than what the game goes for on PC, and if you enjoy it, there's several additional campaigns available as IAP.
