Shit, also known as Oh Shit!, is an MSX game developed and published by Aackosoft in 1985. The game is a clone of Pac-Man, even using graphics directly taken from Namco's MSX port of the game, and features digitized voices and other minimal tweaks from the original. It has since gained infamy for its use of profanity in both the digitized speech and the title itself.

Overview Edit

There are very few differences in Shit compared to the original Pac-Man. The title screen is set up similarly to Pac-Man,s but features digitized speech introducing the four (renamed) ghosts; "THIS IS JOEY, PAUL, WILLY, AND FRANKIE"; the ghosts proceed to spin after this is stated. The game itself features near-perfect recreations of the maze, but the positioning of certain parts appears to be off. Every time Pac-Man gets hit, he yells a long "OH SHIT!" before losing a life, and "GAME OVER" after all lives have been lost. The cutscenes are intact but lack music for unknown reasons.

Written by Steve Course, this game has been released in Japan, The Netherlands, under the name Oh Shit!, and Europe, titled Oh No!. In Oh No!, Pac-Man has no death scream, apart from this, there are no other in-game differences from the original. Covers for the game are very strange and have no resemblance to the game at all, other than the word "Classics" (implying it was a "classic" arcade game). There is, however, a character on the front of the international versions that resembles both Pac-Man and some sort of bear-like animal. The character has small ears and fangs - features which Pac-Man lacks (Pac-Man has a nose in his original artwork, but it is very different from the animalistic one featured on this character). The Japanese box art stole its artwork from a 1985 horror novel by Gary Brander, The Howling III: Echoes, a novel from The Howling Series.
