Bit Corporation

Bit Corporation (普澤 "Pu Ze" in Chinese) [cite web |url=http://fuji.drillspirits.net/gamate/?p=bit |title=Gamate: Bit Corporation |accessdate=2008-06-09 |author=Taizou |date=2008 |work=Neo Fuji |publisher=] was a Taiwanese game developer and console manufacturer.

Games

Bit Corporation was one of the few Taiwanese companies to produce original software for the Atari 2600 rather than simply pirating the works of others, which it released worldwide under both its own name and the Puzzy brand. These games included such titles as "Bobby Is Going Home", "Snail Against Squirrel" and "Mr. Postman" [cite web |url=http://www.atariage.com/company_page.html?SystemID=2600&CompanyID=194 |title=AtariAge - Companies - Bit Corp |accessdate=2008-06-09 |author= |date= |work=AtariAge |publisher=] . The company also produced games for the NES and Famicom including "Duck", "Othello", "Jackpot" and "Crime Busters"; all but the "Crime Busters" were released in Australia by Home Entertainment Suppliers [cite web | url=http://www.er.uqam.ca/merlin/fd491499/nintendo/nes/bitcorp/ |title=Bit Corp. |accessdate=2008-06-09 |author=Jbholio |date= |work=Unlicensed NES Games Guide |publisher=Université du Québec à Montréal | language=] , while "Crime Busters" was released in Brazil by Gradiente [cite web | url=http://www.atarihq.com/tsr/nes/brazil/brazil.html |title=Brazil and the NES |accessdate=2008-06-09 |author=tsr |date= |work=tsr's NES Archive |publisher=AtariHQ | language=] .

Hardware

The majority of the consoles manufactured by Bit Corporation were clones of existing systems, such as the Famicom, Atari 2600 and Sega SG-1000 [cite web |url=http://sdkfz251.blogspot.com/2005_09_01_sdkfz251_archive.html |title=待業青年日記(期間限定): 2005.09 |accessdate=2008-06-09 |author=Wenli Xu |date=2005-09 |work=待業青年日記(期間限定) |publisher=Blogger | language=Chinese] . The company also produced two computers, the Bit-60 and Bit-90, which were based on 2600 and ColecoVision hardware respectively and compatible with each console's cartridges [cite web | url=http://www.zock.com/8-Bit/D_Bit90.HTML |title=Bit Corporation Bit-90 |accessdate=2008-06-09 |author=Sascha Hoogen |date= |work=8-Bit Nirvana |publisher= | language=German] .

Gamate

Bit was also involved in the Gamate handheld game console, the first original Taiwanese handheld; its name appears on all games' title screens and both the system and console packaging. However, recent developments suggest that two other companies, Dunhuang Technology and Gamtec, were also somehow involved in the hardware and software respectively [cite web |url=http://fuji.drillspirits.net/gamate/?p=company |title=Gamate: Other Companies |accessdate=2008-06-09 |author=Taizou |date=2008 |work=Neo Fuji |publisher=] . This was, however, to be Bit Corp's last venture, as in 1992 the company closed citing "operational difficulties" [cite web | url=http://www.toybase.com.tw/h/n1930359.html |title=普澤、昇友停權 |accessdate=2008-06-09 |author= |date= |work=Toybase |publisher= | language=Chinese] .
