Game Genie is the video game enhancer from Galoob, first introduced in 1991 and available in five different models for the Sega Genesis and Game Gear systems,
the Nintendo Entertainment System, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and the Nintendo Game Boy system.
With Game Genie video game enhancer, you can change and customize game play and create special effects on many popular video games. For example, you can have
more lives or weapons, start on any level of the game, jump higher, be invincible, and more. The changes you make with Game Genie are not permanent, and
disappear when the power to the game deck is turned off.
Game Genie, invented by Codemasters in England, is a cartridge-like pack that connects between the game cartridge and the game deck. It introduces its own
startup screen, called the "Code Screen." On this screen, you enter special letter codes chosen from the accompanying Game Genie Codebook to create the
effects you want. Or, you can program your own codes.
Codes have been produced for many popular classic and recent games. New codes are made available by Code Update subscription and in video-game magazines, but
you'll find them first on our Web Site.
