A Story of a Band
by: Hot Byte Games • 1K
Story of a Band is a game where you get to experience what it feels like when being the leader of a rock band.
The app tells the story of how you decided to create your own band. You need to choose the name and the five main artists: singer, rhythm guitarist, a lead guitarist, a bassist and a drummer. After that, it's time to choose the genre; more will be available as the game advances. In the main interaction screen, you can make an album, go touring or fight against other bands. The ending objective is to make your band successful and the adventure ends in 2010.
The game has many features, like the members' mood, the development points and the money, powers and much more. The game is really entertaining and somehow original, as the majority of management games are not that complete and by far aren't as original. The graphics are kind of retro-looking, not perfect but appealing and as the controls work perfectly, there are no complaints regarding that.
Hot Byte Games is the developer of A Story of a Band full version and the demo, in case you want to try it first and see if you like enough to buy the premium pack. If you're interested in the music world and rock, you should give a chance to this application: fun, complete and always interesting. You can play it for some minutes every day and enjoy a new era of rock in your Android device. Recommended both for management games fans tired of imposing their tyranny over fictitious cities and wannabe music managers.

”My mind is not as clear as it used to be, but I believe it was 1965 when we started. Our manager was a pretty peculiar fellow, ’cause we never even saw him (or was it her?) in person. Instead we got our orders through some kind of mobile device. It felt strange at first, but it worked well.
Our days were filled with typical band activities: we made albums, toured, went to interviews, performed on TV and trained relentlessly. We learned various different skills and spent our hard earned cash on items that helped us on our journey. Occasionally we had to prove our worth by facing other bands in a Battle of the Bands contest.
We used to experiment a lot, trying different styles of music. There were plenty of genres to choose from, and each one gave us sort of special powers. We even founded a couple of genres ourselves.
During the first years, we had this underground thing going on. We had a nasty reputation and lots of loyal fans. But as our fame grew, people started accusing us of selling out, and little by little our music became more mainstream. We developed a line of merchandise, and money started pouring in. Eventually we even had our very own record label, and we started producing albums for other bands.
Everything didn’t always go smooth, and we sure had our share of problems. Our bassist was a heavy drinker and spent lot of time in rehab. We also had to kick out our original singer because his attitude towards the rest of us became unbearable, and we grew tired of fighting with him.
All in all, those were pretty fun times, and I would definitely do it all again. If only there was a way to save and load in life!”
