I have personally spoke with Steve Golson, one of the programmers from MIT that did Crazy Otto/Ms. Pac-Man. MazeMan will show up before Crazy Otto does. Trust me, I have been waiting for the original for years and years.
Scott Lawrence did a hack of it in HB Mame, and for all intense and purposes, it is the real thing. Just doing a graphics hack is not enough. According to Steve there is more frames in the animation of Crazy Otto walking than there are in Ms. Pac-Man eating dots. Scott actually went in and added the missing frames of animation. Scott's version is called 'Otto project' and has multiple versions covering every known stage that Steve has mentioned in his keynote speeches. If you watch his keynotes, and look at the Otto Project in HBM, you will see what I mean.
