App description: Update: Now featured in "Best New Games" and "What We're Playing" in the app store!

One man's junk is another man's galactic battleship...

In this addictive arcade-style twin stick space shooter, you (a disgruntled waste collector) salvage the debris from each round of your destructive rampage to piece by piece transform your humble space-garbage-truck into a starship worthy of your cause.

Build increasingly better ships to unleash powerful weapons and gadgetry -- lasers, giant ball-and-chains, anti-gravity orbs, heat seeking missiles, magnets, freeze rays and more -- against endless waves of enemies and huge, modular bosses.

You'll never survive. But if you're going down, you're taking as many of them with you as you can. See how long you can continue the anarchy!

"...you'll find this game incredibly rewarding. There's a bit of an art to playing this game well, and that's something that doesn't come along terribly often"

Editor's Choice, TouchGen.net
"...an incredibly fun hectic romp in space where you smash, shoot and laser anything that moves ... a game well worth sinking your time and money into"

4/5 -- 148apps.com
"Starborn Anarkist is the perfect example of classic arcade game goodness, with a sprinkling of zany madness."

9/10 -- Gamereactor.dk
"When I first turned on the game, it ate up four hours of my evening. Starborn Anarkist is simply a small mobile-pearl." [translated]

Damn that looks so good. I'd even want it on PC, looks like a mix between Ring Runners an Kaiser Earth (okay no more obscure indie references )

I'll wait for impressions first but I'll probably be getting this

Edit: question for anyone who buys: are the enemies and bosses procedurally generated/randomized or does it progress the same way through each playthrough?

Enemies and bosses are random/different each time I have played. Tons a replayability with building your own custom ship, you collect credits in game then you can spend them changing the layout and size of your ship. I will leave a proper review tonight when I have more time but it is a good game worth getting.

Do you actually draw your ship?

You design them from preset pieces.
