Google has quite a long history of adding random games and Easter eggs to their platforms during events such as April fools day and more trivially Google Chrome browser crashes. One of the most popular games being the classic T-Rex browser game that appears whenever Chrome loses Internet connectivity or suffers another minor error. If you’re a big fan of the T-Rex Chrome browser game and would like to play it at any time check out our guide here.
As well as the T-Rex game for Chrome Google has now released a new Snake game for Google Maps which is available for a limited time between the 1st - 7th of April. Snake is available on both Android and iOS and has seven different destinations you can play: Cairo, São Paulo, London, Sydney, San Francisco, Tokyo, or the entire world.
Unlike the original version of Snake however, the Google version puts you in control of a train or bus and challenges you with picking up up passengers. The more passengers you pick up, the longer your bus or train will become. Until you eventually crash into yourself or the game's boundaries. Collecting famous landmarks that appear in certain locations will earn you bonus points, so keep an eye out for Big Ben, the Great Sphinx of Giza, and the Eiffel Tower among an assortment of others.
