10 Best Hidden Google Games You Can Play

Here's a look at the ten best-hidden games in Google:

We all know what happens when we have no connectivity on Google. T-Rex shows up. And what a lot of us don't realize is that this is a game. Our dear 'no connectivity' T-Rex is an endless runner that jumps over cacti and pterodactyls as they are trying and creates obstacles for you. The longer you run, the more points you score.
So how do you play this game? Just hit the spacebar to start the game next time you don't have connectivity. T-Rex runs. And you use the spacebar to make him jump. It's that simple.

Now, who doesn't love a good old game of Pac-Man? It's not the most exciting of games, what with a little girl circle eating some colored dots and being chased by ghosts. But you have to admit it's addicting as ever.

To get to the icon, go to Settings and scroll to 'About Phone'/ here you find the Android Version and tap it several times in quick succession. Then the appropriate icon will show up according to your version of Android.

Flappy Bird took over the smartphone gaming scene by storm. It was a time waster, needed by many like me, and managed to fill the void many people were looking for when it was pulled off the market, a lot of us were disappointed.
But the Android team decided to bring it back with a bit of a twist. And so we have Flappy Droid. To play this game, you need the Lollipop or Marshmallow version of Android. First, find the hidden version icon. Then you tap that icon several times and long press a few times. The game will launch. Enjoy being taken over by your new addiction.
