Halfbrick and FOX Digital Entertainment are proud to announce a new partnership in mobile gaming, with Halfbrick's smash-hit music management game, Band Stars, getting the ultimate Glee update! Players can now take their favorite characters from the hit TV series on a musical mission to form the world's hottest band with the biggest songs!
Since its initial release in December 2013, Band Stars has been downloaded over 1 million times worldwide, with over 25 million songs recorded by its dedicated players. The game features a bright and colorful art style, bursting from the screen with musical energy.
