Bonsai Barber is a strange little game - indeed ONM can't think of anything quite like it. It's appeal lies not in challenging, addictive gameplay but in the same sort of obsessive compulsive qualities of, say, Animal Crossing. There's something strangely compelling about booting the game up every day and tending to your flock of loyal customers and listening to their bizarre chatter.
It's original, heart warming stuff. It's not one for those in search of a white knuckle ride (ironic, seeing as it was made by the same guy behind GoldenEye on the N64) but Bonsai Barber provides a refreshingly odd change of pace.
