Background: Eurocom Entertainment Software was founded in October 1988 by Neil Baldwin, originally to develop games exclusively for the NES. It has since then expanded onto other platforms. Eurocom did not use a proper logo until 1991. Eurocom went out of business on December 6, 2012 due to poor sales of their recent games like 007 Legends.

1st Logo

Eurocom Entertainment Software (Lethal Weapon - NES)
Logo: On a black background is the word "EUROCOM" in the Eurostile Bold font with a purple outline and below that is "ENTERTAINMENT SOFTWARE" in white and in the Stylistic SF font.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: Just the opening theme to the game. On James Bond, Jr., the logo is silent.

Availability: Rare. Seen on Lethal Weapon, Dropzone and James Bond, Jr. for the NES.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo

3rd Logo

<embed allowfullscreen="true" height="209" src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="254" wmode="transparent"/>

Logo: We see an old film countdown starting with "3". After it's done, the Eurocom logo in white zooms out from the middle of the screen. "ENTERTAINMENT SOFTWARE", which this time is in the Enviro font, appear one-by-one as the voiceover (described below) says the words. The logo then becomes off-center, before coming back, coloring "EUROCOM" in rainbow colors, before stretching outwards and zooming away to the left, like a CRT TV powering down.

  • On the Genesis port of Spot Goes to Hollywood, a spotlight is seen, shining over the word "EUROCOM". The screen then flashes white, and the logo appears. The word "PRESENTS" is seen below "ENTERTAINMENT SOFTWARE".
  • A still variant exists.

FX/SFX: The countdown, the Eurocom zoom out, and the off-centering and coloring of the "Eurocom".

Music/Sounds: Beeps and film projector noises during the countdown sequence, and a piece of elevator music during the next scene. A British announcer is heard saying "Eurocom Developments Limited Entertainment Software games. Electronic fun for everyone!" during this half of the logo, ending in a distorted fashion. None for the still variant.

Availability: Uncommon. Can be seen on games from the era since 1996, like the PSX version of Tarzan and Hercules among others. The still variant is known to be on N64 games such as 007: The World is Not Enough and Duke Nukem: Zero Hour, and has also been spotted on a few PSX games (such as Atlantis: The Lost Empire).

Editor's Note: None.

Logo: On a white background with a blue aurora, we see the word "EUROCOM" fade in slowly from right to left, while the aurora (which is actually the word zoomed in) disappears. Then the words:
