epic rita rocks

Looking for something to do on this ridiculously cold Saturday*?

Band Stars

Band Stars

iOS Only (sorry Androids)
Genre: Band Management Sim
Price: Free

I have no idea why I hadn’t heard about this game before it dropped – well, two days after it dropped; I’ve been busy – but it’s a great little title from the people that brought you Jetpack Joyride, Fruit Ninja, Age of Zombies, and Monster Dash (all of which are must-have games for iOS). It reminds me of my beloved Kairosoft games in that you train attributes, hire band members, record music, and mix random genres to see what happens .. but it feels all new and is super fun times. Also, free. I’ve got a up-and-coming band called Epic Rita, and we specialize in Bluegrass Electronica with a punk lead singer. If you’re looking for something to do this weekend that involves nothing more than sitting on your couch under a warm blanket, grab this game and play it while you’re waiting for your superheroes in Marvel Puzzle Quest to heal themselves.

*: How cold is it? It’s so cold that I’m dressed appropriately for the weather, for the first time in at least 5 years. Common sense: I hate using it.
