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!

4.5/5 -- TouchArcade.com
#1 Paid App (Dec 11th, 2013)
"...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]

Yeah, since I posted I went back and read the 30 pages of comments. Too bad about the bugs.

Sorry guys, we hit a delay with the update, but I swear it's ALMOST done. There will also be an alternate way to unlock the friend ship. I feel terrible that we've been essentially punishing facebook haters instead of praising them.

I am really looking forward to an update and will definitely get back into this game when it hits. At the moment I'm waiting on being able to get the bugged achievements, and hoping that some of the rebalancing makes different stuff more usable.

At the same time, this is a good example of why people get cynical about "coming soon!" release statements. I know that stuff happens and even the best plans go awry, but 3 months delay for a game that got this much attention?

Indeed, there's definitely egg all over my face.

I'll make no more statements of imminent wonderfulness until there's actually an update available. Maybe we should rename this update "Starborn Anarkist Forever..."

Leaderboards, balancing, new control options, some new content/achievements, fixes for the broken achievements, more accurate stats in garage, alternate way to unlock Friend Ship, bosses aren't as easy to kill with missiles, new enemies, 'show description' bug fix in garage.... and a bunch more i'm probably forgetting.

Is it getting close?

Anything more news? Not to be rude, but why is stuff that seems relatively minor (relative to say, new content or game mode) taking so long?
