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 develop games for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Eurocom expanded to handheld game systems and major video game consoles. The company licensed arcade games to port to consoles, and 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.[1] On 6 December 2012, the company laid off its remaining staff and closed.[2]
