If you ever need a refresher on how to play the game, you can access the Player Manual in the settings menu. Here you can find all the information you’ll need to play Concert Kings: Idle Music Tycoon.
Notes appear while your band is playing. Swiping the Notes will cause them to be collected, sending them to the crowd. Collected Notes earn you Cash and Band Experience. Notes can also be collected idly and any Notes automatically collected during play will appear at the bottom of the screen. Your idle income accumulates while logged out and upon login will be added to your collected total. The amount of currency you earn while offline and the maximum amount of time you will collect Notes while offline can be upgraded.
Each type of Note has its own Cash and Star value. With each new Venue you unlock, you’ll discover Notes of greater value. Some Notes have the chance to be Critical Notes, which have a significantly increased value. Special Notes are rare Notes that appear when you have certain Performers equipped or have unlocked specific Crew Members. These have a higher value than regular Notes and you get extra Stars from collecting them. All Notes can be upgraded by leveling up your Performers, Crew Members, and Skills. This can both increase their value, and increase the chance of a Special Note appearing.
Certain Stage Upgrades, Performers, Crew Members, and Skills will increase the number of Notes that appear on stage at once and how quickly they appear.
Power Chords are rare notes that unleash powerful special effects when Swiped. Using them well will earn you a whole lot of Cash. Collecting a new Power Chord also earns you its Star value!
Occasionally, a massive wave of Notes will quickly enter the screen. These will be displayed on a unique musical staff that indicates their path. Swiping them will cause a multiplier to stack that increases the value of successive Notes collected in the Encore. This event occurs at regular intervals, but upgrades can be purchased that decrease the amount of time between each Encore.
These are Glow Sticks, they are similar to Special Notes and will occasionally be thrown into the air by the audience. All crew members can collect them, but with the right Crew Member equipped, you can swipe them to earn a little extra Cash.
A Solo is a special event that occurs during play. The Guitarist will play a Solo in each Venue when half of the currency to proceed to the next Venue is collected; or by purchasing the Start Solo Perk from the Merch Table and swiping on your guitarist.
Drones are small quadcopters that occasionally fly over the stage holding a Crate. Swiping or tapping on them will cause them to drop the Crate they are holding into the crowd. Once collected they appear along the left-hand side of your screen and can be interacted with.
New Performers are unlocked by opening Performer Crates that are dropped by drones. Each of these Crates contains Performer Cards that can be exchanged for new Performers, or used to level up Performers you’ve already collected.
If a Performer cannot be upgraded, you have either reached the maximum level for that Performer, or you may need to find additional Performer cards for them. A Performer in the Upgrades Menu will be grayed out if they are at max level, or will have a number indicating how many Performer cards you need to upgrade them further.
The rarity of each Crate is indicated by the number of Circles printed on its side. The more Circles on the Crate, the rarer the Crate is and the more rewards you’ll get for opening it. Rarer Crates might take some time to open. You can pay Diamonds to speed up opening a Performer Crate.
All Cash collected can be spent unlocking new Venues or purchasing upgrades for your Venue.
You can upgrade your Stage by tapping on the Upgrade button at the bottom middle of the screen. There will be a small notification you can tap on to automatically purchase an upgrade you can afford. This is called the Quick Upgrade button.
Diamonds allow you to buy Performers and Crew Members as well as upgrades for each of them. You can also use diamonds to speed up opening Performer Crates.
Diamonds can be acquired by finding them in Diamond Crates dropped by Drones, collected from the Daily Login bonuses, earned by spinning the Spin Wheel, achieving Goals, and purchasing them from the Merch Table. You can also watch ads to receive bonus Diamonds when you get them from Diamond Crates or Goals.
There are three Boosters available from the Merch Table that provide powerful temporary or immediate effects, these are:
- Stardom: Five times Note value for 1 minute
- Speed Time: Skip ahead by two hours
- Solo Power: Immediately begin a Solo
Your player level is indicated by the number of Crowns you have. The higher your level, the more passive Skills you can unlock!
Earning Skill Experience points will award you with Skill Picks. Skill Experience is gained by watching ads or purchasing Diamonds packages from the Merch Table. You can also collect Skill Experience from Crates.
Some powerful Skills have prerequisites, that can only be accessed by unlocking the preceding Skills using Skill Picks.
Each Spin of the Spin Wheel provides you with a multiplier for Notes you collect and a chance at winning the Diamond jackpot! The jackpot is stored in the Tips Jar and increases in value each time you spin the wheel. You also earn Skills Experience with every spin.
Goals represent special tasks, achievements, or milestones in the game. Completing these will earn you Diamonds. A new goal is unlocked immediately after completing your current one!
Challenges are similar to Goals; except they have a limited amount of time they can be completed in. Finishing a Challenge within the time limit will earn you a reward based on its difficulty. Once a Challenge is complete a new one will become available in 24 hours.
Crew members are talented professionals you can hire to help your band get to the next level! Each Crew Member has unique perks that can improve specific aspects of your band greatly.
Only a certain number of Crew Members are available at any time. After you unlock all the crew currently available to you the button disappears. To unlock more Crew you must head to a new Venue. This automatically unlocks a new Crew Member for hire.
These are Influencers! They promote your band and provide a variety of special bonuses. When unlocked, you’ll immediately earn a significant amount of Cash and Stars. Influencers are earned when you complete a Solo in each Venue. You can view your unlocked Influencers in your Notebook!
Each Note you’ve unlocked and Influencer you’ve met is stored in your Notebook. You can also check the base value of each Note and the Star Value of each Influencer.
Each new music Note and Influencer you collect gives you Stars. When collected, these immediately apply a Band Experience multiplier. The more stars you have, the greater the multiplier to your Band Experience.
Collecting any note will earn you one Band Experience. When you Start a New Tour, this value is converted into a Cash collection modifier.
Starting a New Tour will reset your Venues and Stage Upgrades but you keep all of your unlocked Performers, Crew members, all upgrades made to them, Influencers, and Skills making it easier to complete each Venue and unlock even more permanent upgrades. It will also increase the value of the Notes you collect and will make Solos easier to complete.
You receive a login reward for every day you log in. Each consecutive day you log in you will receive better rewards! If you miss a day, you will be reset back to the first-day rewards. However, you will have the option to complete an offer to pick up the streak where you left off!
Events occur frequently in the game. You can check if an event is currently active by tapping on the Notebook, if the Event tab is available then an event is currently active. You can also check by seeing if an Event icon is displayed on the right-hand side of the screen.
Once collected Gold Stars will multiply all of your income permanently. Diamond Stars also increase all of your income, but only during the active Event. Once the Event is over, you will lose all the Diamond Stars you’ve collected and your multiplier will return to normal.
