In a nutshell:The Tamagotchi craze looks like it's about to start all over again as the cute little critters start up in business on the DS, running dentist surgeries, flower shops and bakeries as they show the friendlier side of capitalism.The lowdown:Despite the name this isn't really a virtual pet game, instead you pick one of three Tamagotchis to go into business with in one of 11 different shops. Each one has its own mini-game so that in the beauty shop, for example, you're given a photo of what the customer wants to look like and you have to apply make-up and accessories to get them as close as possible. The more you work the more "gotchi points" you earn to buy furniture, clothes and accessories for your Tamagotchi's house. The mini-games do get a bit repetitive in the end but the graphics, by the designer of PaRappa the Rapper, add a heavy dose of charm to proceedings.Most exciting moment:The best mini-game is the dentist one, where you have to soothe toothaches, fill cavities and drill teeth. There's even a special Dental Salon shop to unlock that works like the Beauty Salon where customers ask you to give them special glazes or diamond studded pearlies.Since you ask:In Japan Connexion Corner Shop has become the best selling DS game not published by Nintendo themselves, with over one million copies sold so far. A sequel is planned for this year.The bottom line:Help the Tamagotchi pets pay their way in this simple but fun mini-game collection.Harrison Dent
