A little sloppy but lots of potential

Gameplay is somewhat fun but there's so much stuff crammed in its hard to know what all there is to do and what you actually need to do. So it's very clunky.
I love the concept and I do appreciate no IAPs. Hopefully improvements will be made because this has the potential to be really cool.
Needs better explanations on how things work instead of just the basics because there's a lot of stuff to sort through.
And it's not really clear how you raise your fatigue level on tour or what exactly you need to do to avoid falling asleep on stage. It's confusing because I start the tour with full energy. How do you keep track of days? Says you need to rest for so many days before you go back on tour but I have no idea...
And why in the heck do you need to purchase saves?!!!!!!!!! The dumbest thing I ever heard of!


This game is everything "Band Boss" lacked. The gameplay is extremely fun. The fact you play a role in how good your band writes songs is rewarding. Your band members can die. Its sad when you have to replace someone who became a alcoholic, or you could send them to rehab. If your unhappy with a member you can give them the boot. There are a bunch of genres you can play, you can even make the genre flop or succeed. Theres so many things to do from battle of the bands, touring, to making tour band look like saints or hell spawns. Great game id recommend this hidden gem to anyone!


Really good concept, but the execution is poor. The graphics and UI design need polish and the gameplay needs tightening up. Very confusing and too much going on at once. The tutorials need to explain the mini games better. The early battles take way too long. The game needs to be streamlined and the player should be eased into the different gameplay aspects. The grammar and sentence structure is also bad. It looks like a lot of work went into this, but I can't really recommend it in its current state.
