I've seen it both ways, IIRC.

In the game they show as * man, but the other way should work too.

The games do it both ways depending on the title. I suppose there is no 'right' way, but the most English correct would probably be the separation. I tend to use it as a single word, but I've been known to mix it up here and there.

The games have used a space between the words. They're interchangable, though.
