In 1992, Galoob Toys released a device known as the Game Genie, which allowed players to manipulate their favorite Nintendo games. It was met with a lawsuit from Nintendo, who claimed the device violated their copyright on games. However, the courts disagreed and the Game Genie became one of the most popular cheat devices ever. The Gaming Historian takes a look at the Game Genie including it’s creation, the battle in the courtroom, and how the device worked.
