Hummer Team is a pirate company that originated during the 16-bit era. They're known for making decent NES ports of games on more advanced consoles along with being associated with JY Company. They seemed to have disappeared during the 64-bit era.

Aliases

  • Someri Team (before 1995)
  • Hummer Team (used between 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)

Games

These are games that are definitely known to be made by them.

  • Aladdin (Hacked to produce many title screen hacks)
  • Tekken 2 (Bundled with a hack of it called Toshinden)

These games could be made by them, but, as of now, there isn't enough evidence to prove it.

The urchin logo

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, Mortal Kombat 4 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 may not have actually been published by JY, but presumably was intended to be).
