Starborn Anarkist

By ZeMind Game Studio Ltd

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


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!

"'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,
" 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 --
"Starborn Anarkist is the perfect example of classic arcade game goodness, with a sprinkling of zany madness."

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

Jeeeez. Best game ever!!!

You start out with a clunky ship but as you find ship parts you upgrade constantly until you are a killing machine. Extremely addictive to try out each weapon and combinations of weapons to find the ultimate layout.
I've finally unlocked the final mode that allows you to use the entire grid to build a monster ship...
Worth far more than they are asking... I was late to the party but thank goodness I didn't miss it. Really well done game... Congrats to the devs. Should have been promoted as apples game of the week (or month!)

Greatly enjoyed!

I normally ignore games with IAP, but I am glad I made an exception with this one. I picked it up while it was on sale and discovered that I loved it. I played it close to four days straight any time I had a free moment I liked it so much that I picked one of the IAP that I didn't really need to spend a little money on as to support the developer. It's quite fun.

Rare great game

This is a well-balanced, well-crafted game that doesn't take itself too seriously. It is easy to pick up and play but deep enough that the hours will just fly by. The customization available for your ship is impressive. It's an intuitive system but not everything is immediately apparent. It took me a while to figure out the red shields repel bullets and missiles but do little to stop lasers. Fans of the original Star Control will appreciate the top-down perspective, inertia based controls, and large variety of ships.
