GAMEKEY ADAPTOR (VERSION 2)
GAME GENIE LOOK ALIKE GAME CONVERTER
Quite an odd name for a company, oh well. Actually I'm not sure if this is the first or second version of the GameKey, but an alternate version of the adaptor is available, looking quite different. While the other version requires two cartridges, one being a host for for the lockout chip needed to play on the particular system, this "version 2" of the GameKey doesn't.

There's really not a whole lot of tell exact that it looks like a GameKey and is the best adaptor for playing US games on a PAL system I've seen sofar. The back includes a small description of how to use the adator, written in English, Italian, German, French, Spanish and Dutch, there is no manual and it's not needed anyway.

On one side of the adaptor is a small 3-way switch for full compatibility, which I guess will make it useful for playing European NES carts on a US Nintendo Entertainment System also. The packing and shape of the GameKey V2 reminds me of another converter which was available, being sold here in Denmark, for playing import NES games. I will make a page about this conterver later on.

Eventhough the box says "Manufactured in Hong Kong" Sachen Entertainment actually could be the manufacturer, they're located in Taiwan though, as they have released a Famicom-to-NES adaptor looking much like this GameKey V2.
