Hummer Team (悍馬小組) is a pirate company that originated in 1992 after a few members left C&E. They're known for making decent NES ports of games that were on more advanced consoles along with being associated with SuperTone, Yoko Software, Ge De Industry Co. and JY Company and KaSheng. They seemed to have disappeared during the 64-bit era, where several members continued to make games elsewhere.
- Someri Team (Used before 1995)
- Hummer Team (Used once in 1992, 1995-1997)
- Jing Tay Team (Seen in Tiny Toon Adventures 6)
- Copyright (As seen in SMW & Aladdin - technically not an alias but still an identifying factor, most developers don't write the word "Copyright" in full)
- Silvers Lin - Programmer, producer, was part of C&E. Name can be found in Aladdin through a hex editor. Possibly Hung Hsiang _ Lin in Donkey Kong Country 4 and Light Lin in Street Fighter IV.
- Kathy Chen - Graphics, was part of C&E. Credited as Kathy Chiang in Tiny Toon Adventures 6. Could be Lidia Jam in Street Fighter 2.
- Hummer Cheng - Sound designer, programmer in Titenic
- Carroll Wu - Graphics
- Stevin Hseih - (Engine) programmer. S.S Hsieh in Donkey Kong Country 4.
- Terrissa Mao (Yao ?) - Graphics, Yao appears on the background of the first stage in Street Fighter Zero 2 '97. Credited as Sakula on DKC4 (pronounce: Sakura).
- Say Lee - Graphics, credited in [Tiny Toon Adventures 6]] and SAY appear next to YAO in SFZ2'97. Credited as Freeman on DKC4.
- Y.Y.C - Graphics, was credited in Earthworm Jim 3 and Donkey Kong Country 4 He/she could be "Huei Fan" credited in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 4
This is a list of people who have appeared in Hummer Team's credits. However, it's unknown if these are real people or just nicknames:
- Alex Yeu - Sound designer, never seen in JY games but was credited in Earthworm Jim 3 and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 4 for music.
- Barbara King - Sound designer for Street Fighter II: The World Warrior and Street Fighter IV (under B.B. King).
- Ming June - Programmer, only appeared in Earthworm Jim 3. Hwang Shinwei used a similar nickname for Block Force (Hwang Jiun Ming)
- Juing Long - Programmer in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 4. Probably the same as above.
All the names used before J.Y. Company era are too hard to track because they are a lot more generic and different than the ones used in 1997.
These are games that are definitely known to be made by them:
SuperTone, Yoko Soft and Ge De Industry Co. era: The game are listed as: Title - Company in the copyright - Year of copyright.
- Jing Ke Xin Zhuan (SuperTone) - 1992
- Street Fighter II: The World Warrior (Yoko Soft) - 1992
- Master Fighter VI' (Yoko Soft) - 1993
- Street Fighter IV (Gouder Co.) - 1993
- Kart Fighter <?> - 1993
- Somari (Someri Team) - 1994 (with its hacks being published under NT in 1996-97)
- AV Bishoujo Senshi Girl Fighting (Someri Team) - 1994
- AV Jiu Ji Ma Jiang 2 <?> - probably 1994 (although dumped ROM uses a Kaising board)
- Garou Densetsu Special <?> - 1994 (Later published by NT under Mortal Kombat 6 title hack)
- Aladdin (Hacked to produce many title screen hacks, as well as Popeye II: Travels in Persia) (JY)
- Donkey Kong Country 4 (Bundled with a hack of it called Jungle Book 2) (JY)
- Dragon Ball Z - Super Butoden 2 (JY)
- Earthworm Jim 3 (NT)
- Final Fight 3 (JY)
- King of Fighters '96 (Made for JY, released by NT)
- Mortal Kombat II (Hacked to produce a 18 Peoples version). (JY)
- Mortal Kombat II Special (Hacked to produce Mortal Kombat III Special and Mortal Kombat 3 Special 56 Peoples) (JY)
- Power Rangers III (Hacked to produce Power Rangers IV) (JY)
- Shin Samurai Spirits 2 (JY)
- Street Fighter Zero 2 '97 (Later hacked to produce Street Fighter Zero 2) (NT)
- Super Mario World (JY)
- Tekken 2 (Bundled with a hack of it called Toshinden) (JY)
- Tiny Toon Adventures 6 (JY)
These are made by only a few members of Hummer Team after leaving JY and NT. (Unknown publisher originally although some of these games were rereleased by ABAB Soft. Panda Adventure on the Super Cool Boy 4-in-1 has a Rinco logo in the tiles.) Some have appeared on Trump Grand Famiclones.
- Dragon Running
- Harry's Legend
- Panda Adventure/Pink Jelly
- Space Shuttle Exploration
- The Duck/The Egg (Duck Hunt wannabe with DKC4's music)
- War of Strike Mouse
These games could be made by them, but, as of now, there isn't enough evidence to prove it.
- Dance Y2K (on ABAB multicart with War of Strike Mosue and Dragon Running)
- Rings (Seems to be based off of Lord of the Rings. The only original on a 4-in-1 that it is found on. Usually there is only one original on Abab's multicart not counting the dance pad multicart)
- Shisen Mahjong 2 (NT) (Similar sound engine, uses music from Jing Ke Xin Zhuan and graphics from AV Jiu Ji Ma Jiang II. Has appeared on one of ABAB Soft's multicarts)
- Ultimate Mortal Kombat 4 (NT) (Use the same engine as their fighting games but the whole game is so low in quality and programming that it is unknown if Hummer Team really made it. Mortal Kombat 4, one of its clones, has appeared on one of ABAB Soft's 4-in-1 carts. Also, Mortal Kombat 4 contains coding from Titenic and an unknown RPG (Rings?). Also Alex Yeu from Earthworm Jim 3 is credited here.)
- Yuu Yuu Hakusho Final (Uses similar engine to many of their fighting games, commands are similar to Shin Samurai Spirits 2 although it predates Samurai Spirits 2.) (NT)
A common misconception of Hummer Team is that in their games, there is a three eyed sun/sea urchin hidden in the ROM, it can generally found by a button code and/or a sprite editor such as Tile Layer Pro, although sometimes (such as in Aladdin) it is incorporated into the level graphics.
This isn't Hummer's logo but rather JY Company's, who published many Hummer games as well as numerous other pirates. This is why it isn't present in Hummer's games that are published by NT (Earthworm Jim 3 and Street Fighter Zero 2 97) but is present in Ei-How Yang's games published by JY, such as Mickey Mania 7 and Contra Spirits (which was published with a Hosenkan Electronics Co., Ltd. label).
