Mister Donut DSThe latest Akogare Girls Collection entry is bound to turn a few heads, as it’s all about making donuts. And not making donuts as a baker, which would be respectable and a Cooking Mama style game. Mister Donut DS is about making donuts as an employee for the fast food donut chain, Mister Donut.

Mister Donut DS is a lot like that old Game Boy Color game, Mc Donalds Monogatari. You start as a new employee at a Mister Donut restaurant and perform mini-games that represent tasks that a real Mister Donut employee would actually do. The goal is to be super successful and become a model employee. Doing well earns you points that can be used towards uniforms and stuff.

Before you get incensed, it’s best to compare the Nippon Columbia’s Akogare Girls Collection games to EA’s Charm Girls Club or Ubisoft’s Imagine series. They’re more like a “my first job” simulation game than a game portraying a desired career. And they aren’t all that bad. I borrowed a copy of Akogare Girl’s Collection: Suteki ni Nurse Days once and it was kind of cute. They’re really good for people just learning Japanese, since they tend to only use katakana, hirigana and easy to understand language.

Nippon Columbia has made four other Akogare Girls Collection games so far – Mangaka Debut Monogatari DS (mangaka sim), Suteki ni Nurse Days (nurse sim), Lovely Youchien Nikki (kindergarten teacher sim) and the forthcoming Wan Nyan Doubutsu Byouin (veteranarian sim). In each you can also use the money earned from your job to customize your character. I remember in Suteki ni Nurse Days you could even make coworkers like you more by doing your job properly. They’re all playable on any DS unit, so check them out if you’re in need of some high-quality shovelware that might help your budding Japanese language skills.
