Eurocom (formerly Eurocom Entertainment Software) was a British video game developer founded in October 1988 by Mat Sneap, Chris Shrigley, Hugh Binns, Tim Rogers and Neil Baldwin, to specifically develop games for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Eurocom expanded to several other platforms including handheld game systems and most major video game consoles. The company was known for its arcade to console ports and games based on licensed properties. They also developed a few original properties such as Magician, Machine Hunter, 40 Winks, and Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy.

On 23 November 2012, Eurocom laid off around 75% of their 200 employees, in a statement company director Hugh Binns said "Eurocom are undertaking a restructuring which I regret to say has meant we've made the majority of our workforce redundant today", attributing a "steep decline in demand for console games", and "will be focusing mainly on mobile opportunities moving forward."[1]

On 6 December 2012, the company laid off its remaining staff and ceased operations.[2]
