SPACECOM Is A Minimal Multiplayer Sci-Fi Strategy Game From The Makers Of The Anomaly Series

Real-time strategy seems to be all about hundreds of actions per minute these days, if you can even find a strategy game that's not a clone of Clash of Clans or League of Legends or Army of Alliteration.

At the moment, there are no customization options for the widget - that's coming at some point - but it looks like user hollywooder has been hard at work creating alternate themes for the clock. The upside is that there's a degree of variability in usage; the obvious downside is that you need to download and flash an .APK to change the colors.

Nevertheless, it's a very cool widget and perfect for minimalistic themes.
