Game Genie is an unofficial video game accessory designed by Codemasters and published by Galoob in 1992. The players would insert the device between a game cartridge and the console and enter a certain code to modify the cartridge's ROM data, allowing the players to cheat.

It was also released for several other platforms, including NES, SNES, Genesis and Game Gear.
