Android 5.0 has an Easter Egg… and it’s a Flappy Bird clone

A keen-eyed Android user has spotted the so-called Easter Egg within the new Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system.

Google likes to hide little bonuses around each iteration of its mobile software and Lollipop, apparently, is no different.

A YouTube user with access to the latest developer preview found a Flappy Bird-style mini game through a combination of taps and prods within the Android settings menus.

The game, like the addictive and infuriating title it’s paying homage to, requires players to tap the screen to duck around obstacles.

However, instead of a bird and those Mario-esque pipes, Easter Egg hunters will guide the Android robot through a landscape of lollipops.

Whether the game makes it into the final version remains to be seen, but happy hunting when Android 5.0 becomes available, reportedly on November 3.

You can check out the game in the video clip below, but don’t watch if you like to work these things out for yourself!
