Starborn Anarkist is a twin-stick shoot-em-up styled after old arcade classics game, where you will have all of the parts that you need to build the ultimate carnage machine, then you can up everything in sight and salvage parts to put together deadly new ships along the game.
In order to unlock new parts, you have to complete the achievements
Here, you will probably do a lot of these naturally as you play
Also, you have to know the kind of parts you can get by taking a look through the list of achievements and seeing which parts are listed there.
The most important parts to work towards to are layouts, which control how much space you are allotted when building a ship.
Later on, you will have to go through the upgrade rules from old arcader shoot em ups.
At this point, you have to learn the settings to how you can control your upgrades.
On the main menu, if you tap Settings, then Game, you can change the upgrade system between Uniform or EASY and Individual or HARD.
The you will see, when you destroy enemy ships, they will drop upgrades that have a color attached to them.
You can also have a gun upgrade, engine upgrade, and shield upgrade in that every of these can be either red, blue, green.
Every color of them will do something differently for each individual part, but you can only have one color on a part at a time.
Then when you are set to Uniform, you only have to worry about collecting upgrades of the same color, as all three attributes will upgrade when you get the same color.
As a illustration, if you get a green gun upgrade, your engine and shield parts will upgrade up the green path that is up to a maximum of level 10 at that time.
Note that if you pick up another color, your parts will drop back down to level 1.
And if you are set to Individual, you can upgrade your three categories separate from each other.
As in description, if you pick up a green gun upgrade, only the gun part will be upgraded and your other parts will remain unchanged that will allow you to do more customization.
Green Color means your main gun fires homing missiles.
The fire rate is very slow but the damage is high and affects targets around the explosion point.
If you can increase the levels you can increase the amount of missiles fired.
Red Color means your main gun fires quick bullets.
The fire rate is very high and the damage is moderate.
If it is in higher levels it increases spread on the shots.
Blue Color means your main gun fires a concentrated laser.
The fire rate is extremely fast like a laser and the damage is high.
So if it is in higher levels it will increase the length and width of the laser and adds more lasers.
Green Color means it will moderate acceleration, moderate maximum speed for all-around engine
Red Color means it is low acceleration, highest maximum speed that will be served for those who like to build up to a fast pace.
Blue Color means It is fastest acceleration, lowest maximum speed.
It is designed for those who twist and turn a lot.
Green color shield will surround your entire ship but it is slow regeneration.
Upgrading adds the amount of damage it can absorb before depleting.
Red color shield is an anti-gravity forcefield surrounds your ship and deflects projectiles.
Upgrading adds the force at which the projectiles are launched.
Blue color shield is a blue shield surrounds a small section of your ship and it is fast regeneration. Upgrading adds the amount of damage it can absorb.
Furthermore, you will be able to pick up the cogs to repair your ship
According to this, enemy ships will often leave behind these yellow cogs.
If you see them, you have to go for grabbing it as it is scrap, the main currency of the game.
Enemy ships with lasers are often easy to see coming, as you will see a red warning track showing you exactly where the laser is going to be.
When seeing this, you have to dodge them right away.
On the other side, just keep on the move, bob and weave, and try to shoot down as many as you can before they overwhelm you.
In line with this, you can get The Anti-Missile Gun that is useful for helping out with this.
Regular bullets are probably the hardest to avoid as they travel fast, just like your own bullets, but it does not deliver too much damage.
Thus, make sure your shields are good before you come to a ship with bullets.
Having certain ship parts will make your life a lot easier
You can try these parts, such as the aforementioned Anti-Missile Gun that automatically shoots down missiles once they are in range of your ship.
You should get another part like the Auto Repair module, which is unlocked by starting a mission and then not moving at all for 60 seconds and it is really useful in a pinch when you are on the run from a giant boss ship.
The Decoy Drone Bay parts will be really useful as well as it creates extra targets for your enemies to go after, buying you precious time.
In addition, you can also try experiment with parts to see how it will the best for your ship.
