Another week, another app on Google Play, meet TREX

Just a short entry today.  A few days ago, I was having internet problems, and by accident I managed to press the space bar on the 'you are offline' page in chrome. To my amazement that cute little retro dinosaur came to life and became a great little addictive game!


After a bit of investigation I discovered this easter egg was added to Chrome earlier this year. As the source code is all open source, over in the Chromium repositories. I got the javascript and created a simple Android application using a webview. You will need to be running KitKat 4.4 or later, as this uses the chrome engine.  

Head over to my software page for links to Google Play or the source code in BitBucket.


Enjoy :)
