Dongguan Hi-Tech Computer Learning Machine Co., Ltd.  (Chinese: 东莞市高科电脑学习机有限公司), more commonly known as Hitek, is a company that made Gameboy Color games that was founded on July 13, 1999 in Dongguan, Guangdong, China.[1] The members of the development team were former Waixing staff. The company still exists, but has long been abandoned with video game production and the development team moved to JungleTac.

Its Game Boy Color games may have been developed by a company called Ruanxin Co., Ltd. Terrifying 9/11 contains an unused Metal Slug title screen crediting that company; additionally, most Hitek games boot up with a "GK.RX" logo, which likely refers to Gaoke (Hitek) and Ruanxin.

Most Hitek games were also published by Li Cheng under different titles.
