    doubt it. the game itself has to do the country check. so unless a SMS game has a country check, it won't happen.

    Further to what Arakon said, the US PBC is identical to the European one. It's the Genesis or MD itself which determines whether the system is PAL or NTSC. (I.E. if you plug a European PBC into a US Genesis, the output will be NTSC, not PAL.)

    Incidentally almost all SMS games are exactly the same for the US and Europe, apart from the packaging and labelling. Only a few exist in separate "PAL" and "NTSC" versions - Galaxy Force and Space Harrier are two examples.
