Background: High Score Entertainment originally started in 1993 as "High Score Productions" and was one of the EA's development companies that used to develop EA Sports titles such as the Madden NFL series (now "EA Tiburon" is the developer since 1996), College Football USA (formerly known as Bill Walsh College Football and now known as the NCAA Football series since 1997), and other games. Sometimes, it worked with another developer on some titles as well. (Visual Concepts, Tiburon Entertainment (now "EA Tiburon"), Stormfront Studios (formerly known as "Beyond Software" until 1993), etc. In 1995, it was later known as "High Score Entertainment".

1st Logo

Logo: On a black background, we see the stoned-shaped square on the
blue upside down triangle with the blue-sphere with the brown liquid on the bottom and it's shadow is displayed behind it. The words, "HIGH", and "SCORE" are above and below respectively with "PRODUCTIONS" below it.

Variants: Sometimes under the logo, on EA Genesis titles, the name of the person or company is under the logo with "
AND" above and "PRESENT" below it respectively. Here's the following:
  • On Madden NFL '94 and '95, it says "WILLIAM ROBINSON".
  • On NHL '94, '95, '96, and '97, it says "MARK LESSER".
  • On Bill Walsh College Football and '95, it says "JIM SIMMONS".
  • On PGA Tour III, it says "POLYGAMES".
  • On NHL Hockey for Game Gear, it says "REALTIME ASSOCIATES".
  • On IMG International Tour Tennis, it says "TOM McWILLIAMS". Also, the logo is bigger.
  • On Normy's Beach Babe-o-Rama, "A" is above the logo and "PRODUCTION" is below the logo, respectively, and under the logo it says "IN ASOCCIATION WITH". The Realtime Associates logo followed it. It was a spelling mistake on "ASSOCIATION" which should be spelled that way.
  • On Jungle Strike, it's like the Normy's Beach Babe-o-Rama variant, but with "MIKE POSEHN" added below. Also, "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" is spelled correctly.
  • On Bill Walsh College Football and NHL '94 for Sega CD, "PRESENTS" is under the logo. Plus, the logo shines.
  • On some EA titles (mostly for SNES and some for Genesis), "AND" is under the logo and one of the developer logos follow it (with "PRESENT" below the developer's logo).
  • On SNES versions of Madden NFL '96, '97 and NHL '96, the logo is on a white background. But on '97, "ENTERTAINMENT" replaces "PRODUCTIONS". (Which was shown before the credits when selected from the Pre-Game, Pause, and other menus.)

Logo: Continuing on where the Electronic Arts logo left off (see here), we move through the space as the 3D Square from the EA logo leaves the screen while the Circle from the EA logo moves onto the Triangle from the EA logo while the text zooms out through the burning effect reading "HIGH SCORE ENTERTAINMENT" appears while the Circle turns and glows yellow. Then the circle explodes as the text dissolves causing a hole in the triangle to appear which proceeds into the Visual Concepts logo variant (see here), as well.

: On a black background, we see some liquid balls raining down and we see the
violet-textured upside-down triangle coming from the left rotating and the stone-shaped square coming from the right rotating respectively while "HIGH" comes from the top-left, "SCORE" comes from the bottom-right and "ENTERTAINMENT" coming from the bottom respectively in a "Futured" font rotating and forming the logo. Then some more liquid balls rain down and onto the stone-shaped square to form the red-orange sphere with the gray liquid on the bottom with it's shadow appearing behind it, forming the logo as some more liquid balls exit the screen.
