I have a page that goes into detail on this - Atari NTSC vs PAL vs SECAM

Long story short, if your TV can handle 60 Hz then NTSC games will work just fine, they'll just appear with the wrong colors.

Some more pictures.
Hope someone Can help me find out.
I tested more games and i got the feeling that the colors are different.
For exempel master builder has yellow tower while i Can see on YouTube and the back of the game that Its green

Run it in Stella. This is what it shows for the NTSC version.

This is what it shows for the PAL version:

You can also force the NTSC version to appear like it does on a PAL Console & TV:

As well as force the PAL version to appear like it's on an NTSC Console & TV:

In reviewing those, the pants will be green if the cartridge is played on the appropriate console.

Thanks a lot spiceware.
As i understand from your pictures if i would have an ntsc game that my back ground must be pink/purple
I Will try an other tv incase this one is supporting ntsc.

I wonder What it Will do with the value of the games i have from spectravision as they are all hard to find

No, the background would be light blue and the boy would have purple pants. Since you have a PAL console, you can only get a display like the 2nd picture (PAL game), or the 3rd one (NTSC game). The 1st and 4th pictures refers to a NTSC console.

Your game is PAL.

It doesn't matter if your tv can handle NTSC, as a PAL 2600 will never ouptut a NTSC signal.

Whoa, look at those graphics!   Never seen this one before.  "Mangia"?  So is the point of the game to gorge yourself?

Yeah, you have a pal copy.
It greatly changes the value if they are not ntsc.
Still cool though ;)
